Joe Thorn is the founding and Lead Pastor of Redeemer Fellowship in St, Charles, IL, the author of several books, and one of the hosts of the podcast, Doctrine and Devotion.
The JoFo get’s it going on the 1689 Confession and focus on Chapter 30, paragraph. The Lord’s Supper symbolized Christ’s death, thought it is not an actual sacrifice. What elements are necessary for the Lord’s Supper? Plus, Jimmy learns what Ripple is, and Joe hates on Canada. Please don’t take him seriously.
Jimmy and Joe talk through an article by Church Lawless called, “10 Characteristics of the Best Bad Church Leaders I’ve Ever Known.” Is it possible to be a gifted leader, but not a good leader? Dr. Lawless offers 10 good and bad characteristics of this type of leader. Plus, Jimmy gets mail and accuses Joe of breaking federal law.

Here’s a quick one for you as Joe and Jimmy talk through paragraphs 3 and 4 of the 1689 Confession. Who should administer this ordinance? Why don’t we “adore” the elements? Is the opposite error of trivialization just as problematic?
Correction: Joe and Jimmy incorrectly attributed a statement made on the Genevan Commons as directed at Aimee Byrd. This was actually directed toward another woman. We apologize for the mistake. As we now understand the comment and its intended target, we still believe it to be ungodly speech. The guys jump into the whole Aimee Byrd/Genevan Commons kerfuffle to talk about our speech, especially as leaders. What’s all the fuss? When does our complaint against one’s theology cross the line into an attack on the person? How should we talk about our theological opponents? Plus, Joe had to apologize for being a jerk.
