200 Proof Gospel #63 FEED ME and my 5,000 friends

A Farewell to some friends heading to Sri Lanka. 


Jesus freaks out the disciples and tells them to do the impossible, AND THEY DO!  Actually, He does it, but He uses them.   

What's up with the feeding of the 5,000 in Matthew 14?   It seems crazy but once again it answers the question of WWJD as we see the answer is - NOTHING YOU WOULD EVER EXPECT!  

The Master Distillers Mark and Craig get silly drunk on 200 Proof Gospel.

200 Proof Gospel #62 MoTown and Vacation Bible Night School

First, Mark Sell puts the Vacation back into Vacation Bible School.  

Then we ask, is Vacation Bible School really a good idea?  Some people say no, but I'm not sure that we understand why.  

Do you drop your kids off at the Baptist VBS one week, the Methodists the next and the Lutherans after that?   

Is VBS more than baby sitting while you go run errands?   

Check it out as the Master Distillers, Mark Sell and Craig Donofrio plum the depths of VBS.

200 Proof Gospel #60 Environmental Wackos

With the United States pulling out of the Paris Accord, we ask the question, "do we have an obligation to taking care of the earth?   

Should we worship the Creator or the creation?  
Does God command us to be environmentalists?  
Should the environment be ruled by litigation or legislation? 

Mark and Craig run in circles and scream "The Sky Is Falling!"  

What is Liberation Theology?

200 Proof Gospel #58 INCOMPREHENSIBLE!

The Master Distillers take up the topic of the Trinity for Holy Trinity Sunday.  

This is the big one when we confess the Athanasian Creed.  This is the Creed that leaves parishioners perplexed and remembering only "The Father incomprehensible, the Son incomprehensible, and the Holy Spirit incomprehensible."

Is the Trinity something that we can comprehend or is the Trinity a mystery that we simply confess?  

The Master Distillers, Mark Sell, Timothy Roth and Craig Donofrio take it on and leave everyone as confused as ever.

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.
