Episode 12 – Presidential Elections. Does Character Count?

In a rare moment of polarity, the men of Sensus Divinipodcastis disagree about the importance of character, when it comes to weighing and evaluating a presidential candidate.  One more highly favors competency.  The other says that character and competency are both crucially important.  Listen in as we debate and wrestle.


Here are the two articles originally written by Austin challenging Dennis’ view.  In the first article, you will find a link to Dennis’ other podcast where he explains why he scarcely values character in potential political figures.

Episode 9 – Sesame Street, Cruising Outer Space, and Speaking in Tongues

Grab your best Grover voice, along with the keys to your intergalactic space mobile, and join us as we ask this important question: Is the gift of prophecy and tongues still in operation today?

John Piper answers in the affirmative.  So does Austin (though hesitantly).  As for Dennis, he’s perhaps a bit more lukewarm.  Join us as with wrestle with this fascinating topic.

Episode 7 – Give Us 45 Minutes to Change Your Mind, John MacArthur (Israel and the Church)

In 2007 John MacArthur delivered a nuclear message entitled, “Why Every Self Respecting Calvinist Should be a Premillennialist.”  Truth be told, it should have been entitled: “Why I think Everyone Should be a Dispensationalist.”  But that isn’t nearly so catchy.

Needless to say, the message caused quite a stir back in the day.  Even to this day one can still hear the distant echoes of Reformed groans reverberating across the plains of some lonely valley.

In this episode, we add to the echo, providing not only a critique of MacArthur’s inciting message, but a positive exegetical case for the church as New Israel.

Give us 45 minutes to change your mind, dispensational friends.  Just 45 minutes and an open mind.


Here is MacArthur’s original message.
