The PODestant Reformation Debut

Reformed Church of the Holy Trinity has a brand new podcast that just dropped its first episode. Join Pastor James Brown Jr. and Devin Maddox as they podcast in pursuit of reformation in a postmodern society. Each episode will challenge the inept worldviews of our culture with the truth of God's Word. This podcast is broken up into two main segments. The first is called the Glorious Grind, which will be a discussion about everyday Christian living and matters pertaining to home and work. In the second segment we will enter The Forbidden Forum, where we will discuss taboo topics of religion and politics!

In this episode James and Devin spend some time introducing themselves and talk about the plaguing inability for Christians to make proper category distinctions

We had some audio difficulties so please bear with us as we work to get everything functioning as it ought. Thank you for listening and we hope that you will tune again again next time.

The Gospel Revisted

We had several obstacles with the weather conditions and even a short power failure. However, we were finally able to get on track. The sermon begins at the 13:00 minute mark.

First Things

By Pastor James Brown Jr.

“And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.” –Isaiah 58:12

Over the last 20 years, our ministry has always consisted of, though inconsistently many times, a desire to be a repairer of the breach in today’s American culture.

In the early years of ministry, we were focused too directly upon civil society without a proper focus on the foundations that build Christian civilizations. In other words, we were focused on the results instead of the necessary ingredients. This is a problem because without the right components it will never yield the desired product.

Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem

By Rev. James Brown Jr.

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.” –Psalm 122:6

Fox News reported on Tuesday that President Donald Trump officially recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, intending to move the United States embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem at a later date.

This move has drawn criticism from all sectors of American society but is largely supported by dispensational evangelicals like Pastor John Hagee, who is also the founder and chairman of Christians United for Israel.

Thoughts on Postmodernism and Reformation

Postmodernism has become an Orwellian nightmare causing difficulty for many Christians to respond doctrinally, philosophically, or practically. As a result, Christians either live in fear, intimidation, or unresponsiveness to Postmodern thugs. What most Christians fail to realize is that we have nothing to fear if we would respond in faithfulness, both doctrinally and practically, to the Word of God.

There is also a flip side—some are responding with their own intimidating behavior seeking to diminish our enemies through browbeating. Needless to say it is not working unless your whole objective is to get into fisticuffs.

One of our objectives is to stop the mouths of those who subvert whole houses (Titus 1:11). How are these “unruly and vain talkers and deceivers” to be silenced? Well, Paul told Titus the Church must have godly, qualified, and ordained pastors who hold fast the faithful word in order to be able by sound doctrine to exhort and convince those who contradict the Word (Titus 1:9).
