Martin G. Selbrede, vice-president of the Chalcedon Foundation, conducts regular Question and Answer sessions on topics of interest to Christians serious about their faith. These audio messages were recorded live, with Martin “working without a net” (as he characterizes it) as he responds to incoming questions. The resulting “messages” continue to cover an ever-widening range of topics, all with an eye to honoring the command to “let all things be done unto edification” (seasoned with the occasional humorous aside). These Q&A’s were modeled after R. J. Rushdoony’s post-sermon Q&A sessions, which allowed those in attendance to “pick Rush’s brain” for a brief season.

Rapture “Proofs” Debunked
In this episode, Pastor Gordan Runyan tackles a series of commonly used Rapture proof texts and shows that they don’t support that innovative doctrine at all. This was recorded at a Sunday evening Bible study at his church in New Mexico. If you believe in the Dispensational, Premillennial Rapture doctrine, you’re going to have to find different texts from now on.
AAVA & VACPT

8: Joel McDurmon’s Restoring America and Pulpit & State
It was another beautiful day in the Lord’s kingdom, and I was going for a stroll on the beach. After not too long I got the feeling I was being followed. So I looked back, and much to my surprise there were two sets of footprints in the sand. When I looked to my right, I noticed Joel McDurmon walking next to me. I was all, “Hey Joel! What’s up?” And he was all, “Hey man, what do I have to do to get on your podcast?” And that’s how this episode got it’s start. We’re really excited for you to hear what Joel has to say! We talked about his great book “Restoring America: One County at a Time” and his latest (edited) “The New England Pulpit and the American Revolution.”
We also announced the winner of the Restoring America giveaway.

Episode 8’s Tweet This moment:
We have just ended a century dominated by a multitude of failed prophecies from those who looked to be raptured out of a collapsing world at any moment. The dawning of a new millennium will hopefully cause the Church to pause and consider whether these discredited prophets should be hooted off the stage. Victory in Jesus: The Bright Hope of Postmillennialism offers a sober and faithful examination of Scripture while clearly demonstrating that Christians have every reason to expect the victory of Jesus and the triumph of the gospel as the Great Commission is fulfilled on earth.
The first three chapters (edited from lectures delivered by Dr. Bahnsen), offer a simple and easy to understand presentation of eschatology in general and especially postmillennial eschatology. These chapters are foundational and provide an excellent start for the person who wants a survey of the topic without too much technical or theological language. The last two chapters build on this foundation and layout a more advanced and in-depth explanation of the postmillennial position.
