200 Proof Gospel Episode 55 Beat Good People With A Stick

Maybe the "good people" need to be beat with a stick and the bad people need some grace!  
Do you know that you do bad things and that you can't do enough to please God?  Maybe the problem isn't that you need to try harder, but rather you need to receive more forgiveness.   

So you think that you're a good person and pleasing God with your behavior? You need to be beaten senseless with the law of God, you aren't measuring up!  

This is the paradox of the Christian faith, those who know that they need to be saved receive grace and those who think that they're fine on their own, need to be accused by the law.   Law and Gospel and understanding "The Simul" are the keys to the Christian Faith. 

Mark, Timothy and Craig take on this topic and Memorial Day in the church.

200 Proof Gospel #53 The Good Shepherd of Vocation and Sanctification

The Good Shepherd usually walks in sheep dung.  
Mark and Craig talk about Jesus as the Good Shepherd and how He deals with all of our ugliness.  
As usual, like drunken goats, the Master Distillers wander off into other topics. They discuss vocation and sanctification.  It probably is a different approach than you have considered before.
