Apologetics.com Radio Show – Sacrifice and the Christian Life with Donald McConnell and Doug Eaton: A Memorial Day Special
“Over the memorial weekend we take time honor those who sacrifice to defend our freedoms. These men and women choose to protect and defend others even over their own safety. This idea of sacrifice runs all through Christianity. From the Old Testament sacrifices, to the sacrifices made by Christ in taking on flesh and being obedient even unto death. It is in Christ’s example that the Christian is to model his or her life. For scripture tells us in 1 Peter 4:1 “Since therefore Christ suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves with the same way of thinking?
In this show join host Donald McConnell, Dean of Trinity Law school; Jeff Saltzmann, Pastor of Bethel Grace Baptist Church in Bellflower; and Doug Eaton of Trinity Law School as they discuss “Sacrifice and the Christian Life.” Join them as they look at questions such as, “Why did God demand the sacrifice of animals in the Old Testament? Did those sacrifices actually atone for sin? What did Paul mean when he said he was filling up what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ, “What apologetic role does suffering play?” The panel will also be spending some time looking at three chapters from Calvin’s Institutes that deal with this aspect of the Christian life; On Self-Denial, On Bearing Our Cross, and On Meditating on the future life.”
