The Reformed Rant

Fencing the Community

An episode of The Reformed Rant

By Edward Dingess
In this podcast I rant about theological, philosophical, apologetical, ecclesiological, and political issues from a distinctively reformed perspective.
What Does Jesus Think About Heretics (25)
In this episode I rant about the Bible's emphasis on the existence of, warnings regarding, and condemnation of false teachers and false prophets. Why do so many Christians have such a causal attitude toward false teachers? Better yet, why are so many Christians hostile toward those who do bother to call out false teachers?

Heretic Hunting (24)
In this episode I discuss the importance of heresy hunting, why it is a biblical practice, and reference a twitter thread including Anthony Bradley, Mika Edmonson, Kyle J. Howard, and Beth Moore as good examples of those who are creating division and confusion in the body of Christ.

What About These Heretic Hunters? (23)
In this episode I interact with Dave Miller's article "They Will Know You Are Must Disciples if You Trash Heretics." Dave spends a lot of time trashing discernment ministries that trash heretics. The irony is award-winning in my opinion.

The Resurrection of Jesus Christ (E22)
In this episode I rant about the event of the resurrection, how we know it happened, what it means, and how we should defend it. I return to criticize Frank Turek and Andy Stanley's ideas as toxic and to be avoided at all costs.

Frank Turek Denies The Necessity of Scripture - 21
In this episode I rant about Turek's claim that the Bible isn't necessary in order for Christianity to be true and that Christianity is based on the event of the resurrection and not the Bible.

The Folly of Repenting of Whiteness - 20
In this episode I rant about the silly notion that something like "Whiteness" is a thing that merits repentance. What black protestants are doing is relabeling sin as "whiteness" and calling it wicked as if the African heart is somehow not quite as black as the non-African's heart. This is an expression of African tribalism.

Church and Culture: The Apostasy of the PCA Membership

The Gay Audit for Christian Churches -17
In this episode I walk through the gay audit created by the editors of Living Out. The purpose is to help Christians think better about the attempts on the part of SBC and PCA leaders to import homosexuality into the churches. “A dog barks and stands at bay if he sees any one assault his master. I should be indeed remiss, if, seeing the truth of God thus attacked, I should remain dumb, without giving one note of warning.” [Calvin]
