Prayers to the Saints - Part 2: Why Intercession?

Episode date:
Transcript published:

In this program we deal with the concept of prayer and intercession. What is prayer in the scriptures? Is "prayer" worship to be given only to God? What is intercession? Why are we commanded to intercede for each other? More importantly, who can intercede for us?

Program Notes - January 30, 2005   Prayer to the Saints - Part 2: Why Intercession?

Prayers to the Saints - Part 1: What is a Saint?

Episode date:
Transcript published:

In the first of a series on prayers to the saints, we begin to discuss how the Orthodox Church connects the dots of many aspects of what it means to be "in Christ" and a member of "the body of Christ." Are we worshipping the saints in prayer? Does Scripture forbid prayer to the dead? Can the living communicate with the dead? What is true prayer? These and many more issues will be discussed in light of Scripture over the next four programs.

Program Notes - January 23, 2005 Prayer to the Saints - Part 1: What is a Saint?

PRAYER TO THE SAINTS PART I

What is a Saint? All Christians are “saints”, or “holy ones” (literal translation), which means “set apart”. All believers are holy ones in the sense of a status which is given to us by virtue of our baptism into Christ and receiving the Holy Spirit. But on the other hand…

Prayers to the Saints - Part 4: State of the Dead, cont’d.

Episode date:
Transcript published:

In the final program of the series on "Prayer to the Saints" we continue the discussion of the state of the departed from the Scriptures. In many enigmatic passages we find the foundations for why the Church affirms the "Communion of the Saints" as including both those "in Christ" on earth and the "departed in Christ." Within these passages we find the rationale for believing that those who have gone before us do stand before the throne of God and intercede on our behalf because of our prayers to them.

Program Notes - February 13, 2005   Prayer to the Saints - Part 4: The State of the Dead

PRAYER TO SAINTS IV

  Warnings by the Church Canons Council of Nicea 787AD. God and the saints are addressed differently. We implore God to grant us blessings and deliver us from evil, we implore the saints to intercede for us to God who grants the petitions. Therefore we pray to God: Have mercy on us, and to the saints, Pray for us. It is strictly…

Prayers to the Saints - Part 3: The State of the Dead

Episode date:
Transcript published:

How can we communicate with the departed saints if they are dead? What is the state of the departed according to the Scriptures? Are they concious, and if so, of what? Can they hear the petitions of those alive on earth? What do they do when people pray to them? These and other questions are actually answered in the Bible. Tune in and find out where.

Program Notes - February 6, 2005 Prayer to the Saints - Part 3: The State of the Dead

PRAYER TO SAINTS III

Status of the dead: What is “death”? It is not annihilation or unconciousness. Death is the separation of things that should be together, body and soul, the soul and God. Death is separation. The Old Testament uses the term “cut off” as a euphemism for putting someone to death. “Eternal life” is NOT…

Sola Scriptura and Tradition - Part 2

Episode date:
Transcript published:

Part two of a four-part series on an Orthodox response to the doctrine of sola Scriptura.

Mr. Robinson:

I have sinned against thee, O good one, more than the adulterous woman, and have not offered thee a flood of tears, but silently and calmly, I kneel, asking, kissing thy pure feet with longing, that thou mayest grant me, O Savior, remission of my sins. Deliver me from the mire of my deeds, O my Savior.

Good afternoon and welcome to this edition of Our Life in Christ. I’m your host…

Sola Scriptura and Tradition - Part 1

Episode date:
Transcript published:

Part one of a four-part series on sola Scriptura. Steve and Bill discuss Hank Hanegraaff's (The Bible Answer Man) Christian Research Institute's piece on "What Think Ye of Rome" in which Norman Geisler and Ralph MacKenzie defend sola Scriptura. In this series of programs they show how and why the anti-Roman Catholic arguments for sola Scriptura do not fit within an Orthodox framework.

Steve Robinson:

O Lord and Master of my life, take from me the spirit of sloth, meddling, lust of power, and idle talk, but give rather the spirit of chastity, humility, patience, and love to thy servant. Yea, O Lord and King, grant me to see my own sins and not to judge my brother, for blessed art thou unto ages of ages. Amen.

Good afternoon, and welcome to this edition of Our Life in Christ. I’m…
