TMAI with Eric Weathers

As a native of Southern California, Eric was graduated from The Master’s University. He served as a youth pastor at Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, CA in the 1980’s while attending The Master’s Seminary (TMS). 

After a 20-year career in many management and executive advisory roles at FedEx, Eric returned to TMS to complete a Masters of Divinity. He then pastored churches in Kentucky and Bryan, Texas.

Eric is currently completing his Doctor of Ministry at TMS. The title of his nine-sermon preaching project is: Work in a Manner Worthy of Your Calling: Practicing Biblical Principles in the Marketplace.

As the Sr. Vice President of Strategic Partnerships at The Master’s Academy International (TMAI), Eric provides strategic global communication and reporting to TMAI’s expanding partners and major donor constituency.  His Dallas/Fort Worth office location allows Eric to travel both domestically and internationally for his responsibilities at TMAI while remaining involved and under the elders at Countryside Bible Church in Southlake.

Steve Lawson serves as president of OnePassion Ministries and professor of Preaching at The Master's Seminary. A graduate of Texas Tech University, Dallas Theological Seminary, and Reformed Theological Seminary, he also serves on the board of directors of The Master's University and Seminary and the ministerial board for Reformed Theological Seminary. Steve and his wife, Anne, have four children.

Though written thirty-five years ago as Sam Waldron’s ThM thesis, Political Revolution in the Reformed Tradition brings crucial perspective to guide the church and the Christian through perplexing ethical and societal questions that have emerged in the present day. Does the Bible support or prohibit political revolution? What did John Calvin, the founder of the Reformed tradition, believe on the topic of political insurrection, and did his thoughts line up with the Word of God? Does Romans 13 call us to obey the government blindly in all situations? What is the relationship between subordination to civil magistrates and obedience to the same authorities? You’ll find answers to these questions and more in this scholarly examination of the tension between living in the kingdom of God and, simultaneously, in the kingdom of man.

A few years ago we interviewed Dr. Craig Carter and Dr. Chris Bolt on the Covenant Podcast. The topic of our conversation was “Christian Metaphysics, Epistemology, and Apologetics.” Since that time, discussions on Aquinas, Van Til, classic theism, and classical apologetics have been continual and sometimes people have talked past one another. We could think of no better way to try to resolve this issue than by having Dr. Carter and Dr. Bolt talk about the following topic: Van Til, Aquinas, and Biblicism

In this discussion, we discuss: “The Thought of Cornelius Van Til.” Some of the topics discussed (amongst others): Gordon Clark Karl Barth Reformed Thomism The Great Tradition Stay tuned for this episode!
