The Semper Reformata Podcast

Acts-In-Replay: The Unknown God. Acts 17:14-21 The Semper Reformata Podcast

Acts-In-Replay: The Unknown God.  Acts 17:14-21 The Greeks at Athens had heard Paul speaking about Jesus and the Resurrection.  We know that everywhere he went Paul preached about the Cross, about Jesus who died and rose again from the dead for all our sins.  His message never varied. Read, 1 Corinthians 1:23-25, 1 Corinthians 2:2    So now he is standing in front of the most exclusive court in the ancient world.  Let’s look at his opening remarks, his assessment of the religious disposition of the people of Athens. This is an important step in coming to an understanding of the masterful and uncompromising, and yet carefully contextualised gospel message that Paul will preach to these high ranking citizens.

The Podcast

Christian Ethics, Reformed Doctrine, Regulative Principle of Worship, Congregationalism, and of course, the Heidelberg Catechism are all topics that are discussed on The Semper Reformata Podcast, hosted by Bob McEvoy, the pastor of The Old Reformed Church at Ballymacashon, Killinchy, Co.Down, Northern Ireland.

The Semper Reformata Podcast began during the first UK National Lockdown, early in 2020, when church services were moved on-line.  It became apparent that a large number of elderly Christian believers who did not have computers or internet access, were missing out on regular bible teaching and encouragement.  I decided then to post a free CD to those who requested one, containing a short Bible message and a catechism Class, easy introductions to Reformed doctrine, using the Heidelberg Catechism as the basis of those lessons.  Later I moved these short messages online, and the Semper Reformata Podcast was born.

The Podcast is now available on most of the popular platforms, but the weekly CD’s are still provided free of charge to elderly listeners in Northern Ireland.  You can help with this simple ministry too.  Each CD and postage costs around £2 ($2.75).  To help with the costs look at the upper right part of this webpage and you’ll find a friendly ‘Buy Me a Coffee’ button.  I promise, that if you buy me a coffee, I’ll pay for the coffee myself, and put your contribution towards the cost of the CD’s for older people!  

Thanks for your help.  I know it will be appreciated.
