Just thought you guys (and gals) might enjoy this really good thread on Luther over at /r/AskHistorians about his views regarding Jews. The answer is really good and well developed. https://www.reddit.com/r/AskHistorians/comments/7a5r5o/why_did_martin_luther_write_his_treatise_the_jews/

Does anyone else want to make it onto his show and thus know you have "made it?" I have been working on my backstory so I can get accepted as a guest on his show. After watching countless episodes on youtube, I think I have the essential criteria.

I will tell him that I: – Can see Angels. – Went to Heaven and spoke to Jesus. – Talk to Jesus face to face on a weekly basis. – Stress that God is not in control, as control rests between Satan and the words we speak. – Was told a secret by Jesus that, if people pay attention to, will help them unlock the floodgates of heaven. – Have seen countless people healed and raised from the dead, but cannot provide footage due to legal restrictions.

And for good measure, I will tell him that my first few visits in Heaven, Jesus was riding a Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Of course, I will have my experiences and that "heavenly secret" all written into a nice, high gloss book that people can purchase from his program for a suggested donation of $59.

Do I have a chance of getting on the show?

Does anyone here have one in a pdf form? I have yet to find one online; the few sites that link to one all link to what seems to be a broken document. I realize this is last minute, but I cannot find one anywhere. A few years ago we carved a Calvin pumpkin, and figured we would do a Luther one this year.

A man called Peter (Dr. Peter Marshall)

For those of you familiar with Dr. Peter Marshall, was he theologically conservative? My wife and I love the movie, but obviously that is a movie and doesn't get into any theological details, but I can find very little that speaks of his theological leanings. I assume he was a solid teacher, but know little about him short of that which can be seen in the movie. Any insight?

Reformed Theology Question about baptisms to all ye Paedobaptist folk.  Calvinism
Question about baptisms to all ye Paedobaptist folk.

Please Note: This is not for a debate, as there is already a thread carrying the baptism debate of the week. I have a question that I do not think I have ever seen an answer to (although I admittedly have not asked it before).

Pertaining to the concept of baptizing "you and your children and all those far off" and household baptisms, how is a new convert handled in your church? If the husband/father is a new believer, and his wife goes to church with him but is not a believer, and his teenage child does not attend church, how would you handle that? Should they not all be baptized as well, regardless of their belief status? What do you do if they refuse to be baptized?

I realize this may be a dumb question, but it is asked in sincerity as this is something I have wondered for a long while, yet always forget to ask. Again, I am not asking this to debate or create more hear when I simply want light.

Podcasts in the sidebar

Question for the mod team here:

Seeing as how we get a thread a week or so looking for podcast recommendations, would it be beneficial to create a Podcast thread/link in the sidebar for people to be able to reference? We could all throw in our suggestions (with a sentence or so explaining what the podcast is about) and that could be included, so whenever someone is looking for podcast recommendations they can just pull that up as a quick reference guide.

Is that something we could/should do?

Reformed Theology Thoughts on having thoughts?  Calvinism
Thoughts on having thoughts?

I have noticed a lot of threads on here asking for our thoughts on various things, and it got me thinking; is having thoughts about thoughts sinful? Should we actually be thinking about thinking about things? Where in Scripture are we told to think about thoughts, or to solicit others for their thoughts about things that need thinking upon?

Reformed Theology Addressing women "pastors" and others unfit.  Calvinism

Addressing women “pastors” and others unfit.

Reformed Theology Addressing women "pastors" and others unfit.  Calvinism
Addressing women “pastors” and others unfit.

This is something that I have been struggling with for a long time. When you meet Christians from other denominations, or even have good friends/family in other denominations, how do you address their pastoral staff if they are a woman? As I understand it and firmly believe, a woman should not be a pastor/co-pastor with her husband, so when you are either talking to them or talking about them to someone who supports them, do you say "Pastor Janice" or what? I struggle with this because I do not believe they are pastors, and so do not want to address them as such, but do want to be respectful.

I have the same question about any person whom you may know that became ordained at an early age/inappropriate stage of their life, and so really struggle with calling them Pastor. For example, suppose you have a friend whom you have known for several years, and the bulk of their "ministry" is playing guitar and singing/leading worship in their church; they have done this for several years, but anytime you have engaged them in any form of doctrinal discussion, they seem to have surface level knowledge and lean towards a dangerous understanding of Scripture (postulating that Moses may have been heavily influenced by his pagan father in law).

If you genuinely believe they should not be in ordained ministry, by what title do you address them?
