Entries in Genuine Truth (3)


Bible Study with Jonathan Rose

In this episode, Todd and Pearse interview the Rev. Dr. Jonathan Rose about the Bible study he holds every week. Jonathan describes how his approach to reading the Bible has evolved, through personal study and his interactions with the Church of Truth. How to deal with non-canonical books, for example? He discusses ways the Heavenly Doctrines have informed his studies and vice versa, and he offers listeners some guidelines for their own studies.

Reading the Word with Mac

We talk with Glenn "Mac" Frazier of New Way Church in Austin about reading the Word. We discuss ways of approaching reading the Word, including the Writings of Emanuel Swedenborg, and recommend taking one story or small work at a time. We talk about genuine truth, apparent truth, and how to see a deeper meaning in the Bible. What do you believe are some of the core, essential truths that help unlock the rest of the Word's deeper meaning?

Malcolm and Pearse discuss "Emergent Christianity." We mention "The New Christians: Dispatches from the Emergent Frontier" by Tony Jones, and a conference at Gloria Dei Church where Tony Jones and Brian McLaren spoke. What do you think about postmodern interpretations of the Bible, the Divinity of Christ and other essential doctrines, and where the New Church fits in. Join the conversation in the comments below. Thanks for listening!
