  • Gavin Ortlund’s Mini Flood Farce
    by Pastor Aldo Leon on February 14, 2024 at 2:00 pm

    In this episode of Kingdom Polemics, Aldo Leon tackles the controversial topic of the local vs. global flood debate. He examines the biblical text of Genesis 6-9 and argues that there is no textual or theological basis for a local flood interpretation. He also responds to some of the arguments and objections raised by Gavin Ortlund, a pastor and theologian who advocates for a local flood view. Aldo shows how the local flood view undermines the connection between the Noahic flood and the final judgment, the creation mandate and the Noahic covenant, and the typology of Noah and Christ. He also exposes the underlying assumptions and motivations behind the local flood view, such as the desire to accommodate modern science and avoid the appearance of foolishness. He challenges listeners to trust the authority and clarity of God’s word over human wisdom and speculation.Some of the highlights of this episode are:The connection between the creation dominion mandate and the Noahic narrativeThe general symmetry of the whole creation conversation in Genesis 1-2 and Genesis 6-9The pneumatological symmetry and connectedness of the creation event and the Noahic eventThe repetitiveness of seven in the narrative of Genesis, indicating completeness and totalityThe universal language of depravity and judgment in the textThe judgment-parousia theme that makes the flood utterly universalThe typological redemptive element of the Genesis 6-9 that points to Christ and the gospelThe YouTube Episodes discussed in this episode are from Gavin Ortlund’s YouTube Channel, “Truth Unites”.”Was Noah’s Flood Local”(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rq5tUg4SWzs)”Is My Local Flood View HERESY?!?”(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pgVsZCdlSPM)If you enjoyed this episode and want to support Kingdom Polemics, please consider buying us a coffee at https://www.buymeacoffee.com/kingdompolemics.

  • The Rise and Triumph of Reformed Revisionism
    by Pastor Aldo Leon on February 7, 2024 at 2:00 pm

    In this episode of Kingdom Polemics, Pastor Aldo Leon critically examines an article, “Lessons from the Lutheran Tradition for 2024” (https://www.firstthings.com/web-exclusives/2024/01/lessons-from-the-lutheran-tradition-for-2024) by Carl Trueman, a prominent Reformed theologian and historian, who argues that Christians should not be preoccupied with the temporal and civil affairs of this age, but rather focus on the eternal truths of the gospel and the confessional documents of Protestantism. Pastor Aldo challenges this view by showing how the Westminster Standards, the Belgic Confession, and the Lutheran tradition all affirm the importance of the civil magistrate and the Christian influence on the public sphere. He also exposes the inconsistencies and contradictions in Trueman’s article, and calls for a more comprehensive and optimistic Kingdom theology that is faithful to the Scriptures and the Reformed heritage.Some of the highlights and discussion points of this episode are: How Trueman misrepresents the Westminster divines, who were deeply involved in preaching to and advising the Parliament, and who advocated for the covenantal and theocratic rule of God over the nations.How Trueman ignores the historical and theological context of the Solemn League and Covenant, which was the backdrop of the Westminster Assembly and its documents.How Trueman appeals to the Lutheran tradition, especially the theology of the cross, as a model of suffering and passive Christianity, while overlooking the political and social activism of Luther and his followers, who resisted and condemned the civil authorities for their blasphemy, idolatry, and persecution of the true church.How Trueman fails to account for the biblical and confessional examples of godly princes and magistrates, who were called to uphold the law of God, protect the sacred ministry, and promote the Kingdom of Christ in their realms.How Trueman’s view of the civil realm as irrelevant and indifferent to the Christian faith leads to a loss of orthodoxy, a neglect of God’s honor, and a surrender of the cultural mandate.Sources used in this Episode:MARTIN LUTHER, “On the Jews and Their Lies” (1543) Parts 11-13 (https://www.ccjr.us/dialogika-resources/primary-texts-from-the-history-of-the-relationship/luther-1543)Early Lutheranism and Old Testament Civil Law: Not the Two Kingdoms Theology you Thought it Was (https://theonomyresources.blogspot.com/2013/05/early-lutheranism-and-old-civil.html)Luther, 1523: On Secular Authority: how far does the Obedience owed to it extend?

  • Christ “Centered” Antinomianism
    by Pastor Aldo Leon on January 31, 2024 at 2:00 pm

    In this episode of Kingdom Polemics, Pastor Aldo Leon talks with his friend and fellow pastor, George Sayour, about the dangers of Christ-centered antinomianism, a way of interpreting the Bible that neglects the moral and ethical implications of the Old Testament narratives. They discuss how this approach is contrary to the Reformed tradition, the biblical theology of Christ and his Spirit, and the call to live by faith in union with Christ. They also share their personal journeys of discovering the richness and relevance of the Old Testament for Christian living.Some of the highlights of their conversation are:How they were both attracted to the redemptive-historical movement and its emphasis on seeing Christ in all of Scripture, but also realized its limitations and imbalances.How the Old Testament figures and stories are not only types and shadows of Christ, but also examples and models of faith and obedience for us.How Hebrews 11 and 12 show us that the heroes of the faith did great things and suffered greatly as they looked to Christ, and how we are surrounded by their witness and encouraged to run our own race.How the exclusive preaching of doctrine without application leads to an antinomian spirit, while the exclusive preaching of duties without doctrine leads to self-righteousness.How the Christ-centered antinomianism is influenced by a hyper-eschatological view of Scripture that ignores the present realities and responsibilities of the Christian life.How the Christ-centered antinomianism is also connected to a brokenness theology that denies the possibility and power of sanctification and growth in holiness.How the Christ-centered antinomianism fails to appreciate the diversity and complexity of the biblical genres and the historical contexts of the Old Testament.How the Christ-centered antinomianism misses out on the important virtues and values that are commended and exemplified in the Old Testament, such as bravery, tenacity, dominion, marriage, family, etc.George Sayour has two podcasts that we recommend you listen to:1.

  • The End Times and Christian Nationalism
    by Pastor Aldo Leon on January 23, 2024 at 2:00 pm

    This Kingdom Polemics episode is a rebroadcast from the “City of God” podcast wherein Pastor Rob Pacienza from Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church talks with Pastor Aldo Leon from Pinelands Presbyterian Church and David Bibee, the director of Christian Education at Coral Ridge, about the theological foundation of Christian nationalism and how it relates to eschatology and cultural engagement. They discuss the problems and implications of Dispensationalism, the most common end times view among American Protestants, and contrast it with a more optimistic and biblical view of the future that sees the gospel advancing and the kingdom progressing in every sphere of life. They also address some of the common objections and misconceptions about Christian nationalism and how it differs from a Christ-centered perspective that honors the lordship of Christ over all things.Some of the highlights and discussion points of this episode are:Dispensationalism: a theology of separation and escape. Dispensationalism separates the kingdom from the church, the Old Testament from the New Testament, the spiritual from the material, and the culture from Christianity. It also expects the world to get worse and worse until Christ returns, and thus fosters a mindset of escapism and defeatism among Christians.Postmillennialism: a theology of transformation and victory. Postmillennialism affirms the continuity and fulfillment of the Old Testament in the New Testament, the integration of the spiritual and the material, and the relevance and application of Christianity to culture. It also anticipates the world to get better and better as the gospel spreads and the kingdom grows, and thus inspires a mindset of transformation and victory among Christians.Christian nationalism: a biblical mandate and a historical reality. Christian nationalism is not a political ideology or a cultural preference, but a biblical mandate and a historical reality. It is the recognition and declaration that Christ is the King of kings and the Lord of lords, and that every nation and every sphere of life is under his authority and must submit to his law. It is also the acknowledgment and appreciation of the Christian heritage and influence that shaped the founding and development of America and other nations.Cultural engagement: a faithful witness and a fruitful work. Cultural engagement is not a worldly distraction or a carnal ambition, but a faithful witness and a fruitful work. It is the demonstration and proclamation of the gospel and the kingdom in every area of society, such as politics, education, arts, media, etc. It is also the application and implementation of the biblical principles and values that lead to the flourishing and blessing of humanity and creation.Resources:Original YouTube Broadcast: Episode 52 of “City of God” (https://youtu.be/aIeCU6Cl6M4)YouTube Video, “On Earth as it is in Heaven” (https://youtu.be/jchu–KWvDw) mentioned by David Bibee as a good resource to find out more about Postmillenialism.If you enjoyed this episode and want to support Kingdom Polemics, please visit our “Buy Me A Coffee” webpage (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/kingdompolemics) and consider making a donation to help us produce more quality content.

  • Second Commandment Is Not Secondary
    by Pastor Aldo Leon on January 17, 2024 at 2:00 pm

    In this episode of Kingdom Polemics, host Aldo Leon provides an introduction to a rebroadcast of The Westminster Standard (https://www.youtube.com/@RFBWCF/podcasts), hosted by Ryan Biese. Pastor Biese invites four ministers to discuss the historic Protestant view of the second commandment and its implications for the use of images of Christ in worship and education. The panelists are Dr. T. David Gordon, George Sayour, Andrew Smyth, and Aldo Leon. They explore the biblical, theological, and confessional grounds for rejecting any representation of God or any of the three persons of the Trinity, as well as the pastoral and practical challenges of living in an image-saturated culture. They also share their insights and experiences on how to shepherd congregations and families to honor God’s will in this matter.Some of the highlights and discussion points of this episode are:The importance of maintaining the creator-creature distinction and the regulative principle of worship as the foundation of the reformed faith.The significance of the Genesis account and the incarnation of Christ for understanding God’s self-revelation and his exclusive authority to make his image.The difference between the apocalyptic imagery of Revelation and the historical narrative of the Gospels, and why the former does not justify making mental or physical images of Christ.The role of the sacraments as God’s condescension to our weakness and crudeness, and his provision of visible signs and seals of his grace.The influence of the development of the camera and the photograph on the culture and the church, and the need to resist the idolatrous tendencies of our fallen nature.The benefits of the living preaching of the word and the faithful administration of the sacraments for the strengthening and confirmation of our faith.The original broadcast, “Loving the Second Commandment,” may be viewed on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=crz8F8WT7to).If you enjoyed this episode and want to support Kingdom Polemics, please consider buying us a coffee at https://www.buymeacoffee.com/kingdompolemics.

  • Officer Training on WCF Chapter 19
    by Pastor Aldo Leon on January 11, 2024 at 2:00 pm

    In this episode, Aldo Leon, the host of Kingdom Polemics, teaches on the Westminster Confession of Faith Chapter 19 (https://students.wts.edu/resources/creeds/westminsterconfession.html#Chapter_19), which deals with the law of God and its use for mankind. He explains the difference between the moral, ceremonial, and judicial laws, and how they apply to all people in all times. He also challenges some common misconceptions and errors regarding the law of God, such as antinomianism, theonomy, and natural law. He shows how the law of God reveals the holy nature and will of God, convicts us of our sin and misery, and points us to Christ and his obedience. He also argues that the law of God is a rule of life for believers, and a means of restraining evil and promoting righteousness in society.Some of the highlights and discussion points of this episode are:The 10 commandments are creational and universal, not just for Israel or the church.The ceremonial and judicial laws have expired, except for the general equity thereof, which means the moral principles that are binding on all nations.The punishments of the judicial laws are not necessarily the same for all times and places, but they indicate the severity of the crimes and the justice of God.The law of God is not bad or abolished in the gospel, but rather strengthened and fulfilled by Christ.The law of God informs us of our duty, directs and binds us to walk accordingly, humbles us in the sense of our sin, and helps us to see our need of Christ and his perfection.The law of God restrains our corruption and forbids sin, and also serves as a tutor to bring us to Christ.The law of God is not arbitrary or subjective, but based on the authority and character of God the Creator and King.The law of God is not contrary to grace or love, but rather expresses the love of God and guides us to love God and our neighbor.If you enjoyed this episode and want to support Kingdom Polemics, please consider buying us a coffee at https://www.buymeacoffee.com/kingdompolemics.

  • The Westminster Divines vs The Theonomists
    by Pastor Aldo Leon on January 6, 2024 at 2:00 pm

    In this episode, Aldo Leon, the host of Kingdom Polemics, explores the differences between theonomy and Westminster theology. He argues that theonomy is incompatible with the classic theism, covenantalism, and law distinctions of the Westminster divines. He also critiques the social trinitarianism, monocoventalism, and judicial moralism of the theonomists. He challenges the listeners to examine the sources, systems, and streams of their theology and to be faithful to the confessional standards of the Reformed faith.Some of the highlights and discussion points of this episode are:Theonomy and Social Trinitarianism: Aldo explains how the theonomists have a relational view of God that blurs the oneness and simplicity of God, the distinction between the intra and extra Trinitarian actions, and the distinction between the Creator and the creature. He shows how this view leads to a social and political obsession and a denial of the classic doctrine of God.Theonomy and Monocovenantalism: Aldo exposes how the theonomists deny the covenant of works in creation and collapse the covenant of grace into the covenant of creation. He shows how this view leads to a loss of imputation, merit, and justification by faith alone. He also shows how this view leads to a confusion of the penalties and purposes of the law of God.Theonomy and Judicial Moralism: Aldo demonstrates how the theonomists fail to distinguish between the moral and judicial aspects of the law of God. He shows how this view leads to a judaizing and pharisaical tendency and a disregard for the general equity principle. He also shows how this view leads to a violation of the second commandment and a softness on idolatry and false religion.Pastor Aldo is providing the following links for further study and investigation on this topic:https://purelypresbyterian.com/2015/06/07/8-differences-between-covenanters-and-reconstructionists/https://beta.sermonaudio.com/broadcasters/srpc/series/170606/https://www.amazon.com/Federal-Vision-Covenant-Theology-Comparative/dp/1596380330https://a.co/d/c3bvUc6https://bit.ly/3TKT0trhttps://greenbaggins.wordpress.com/category/heresy/federal-vision/https://beta.sermonaudio.com/sermons/3150381658/If you enjoyed this episode and want to support Kingdom Polemics, please visit our Buy Me A Coffee webpage (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/kingdompolemics) and make a donation.

  • Mohler’s Christian Nationalism
    by Pastor Aldo Leon on January 1, 2024 at 2:00 pm

    In this episode of Kingdom Polemics, host Aldo Leon interacts with Al Mohler’s discussion on Christian nationalism and the role of the church in society. Leon, a Presbyterian pastor and theologian, agrees with some of Mohler’s points, but also challenges his Baptist perspective on the relationship between the first and second table of the law, the confessional state, and the covenantal worldview. Leon argues that the Christian worldview is both the foundation and the threat of the American constitutional system, and that Christians should seek to influence the society with the whole counsel of God, both natural and revealed.Some of the highlights or discussion points of this episode are:The primary, secondary, and tertiary effects of the gospel on the church and the worldThe difference between external and doxological obedience to the ten commandmentsThe problem of unhinging Protestantism from covenantal confessionalismThe use of both Scripture and creation order arguments in public policyThe public role of the church and the preaching of the word of God to the larger worldIf you enjoyed this episode and want to support Kingdom Polemics, please consider buying us a coffee at https://www.buymeacoffee.com/kingdompolemics.

  • DeYoung, VanDrunen, and the Decalogue
    by Pastor Aldo Leon on December 29, 2023 at 2:00 pm

    In this episode, Pastor Aldo Leon interacts with a conversation between Kevin DeYoung and David VanDrunen on the book Politics After Christendom, written by VanDrunen. Pastor Aldo challenges some of the claims and arguments made by the author, especially regarding the nature and role of the Noahic covenant in political theology. He also offers a different perspective that is more consistent with Reformed covenant theology and the Westminster standards. Some of the topics discussed in this episode are:The distinction between common grace and saving grace, and how they relate to the civil government and the church.The continuity and discontinuity between the Noahic covenant and the other biblical covenants, and how they reveal God’s redemptive plan for his people and his creation.The implications of baptizing uneducated or untrained adults, and the problems of congregationalism and diversity within the Baptist tradition.The importance of reading the Noahic covenant in light of the whole Scripture, and not isolating it from the rest of covenantal history.The legitimacy and accountability of civil magistrates, and the need for Christian involvement and influence in the political sphere.Note: There are parts of this video-interact broadcast that have been skipped, sped up, reduced in volume or cut due to audio issues or brevity for the benefit of the listener.
