A Lutheran, a Calvinist, and a Baptist walk into a bar. . . and start talking about vocation. Well, not really. The Baptist would not go into a bar, and in this case there is no Baptist. I’d describe the Liberate folks (a ministry of Tullian Tchividjian) as Lutheran-influenced evangelicals. But this video is a good example, in light of our recent discussions of those traditions, of how a Lutheran concept can indeed carry over into other traditions. Here Lutheran Rod Rosenbladt, Calvinist Michael Horton, and Liberate’s Daniel Siedell (a faculty member of Knox Seminary) are all talking about vocation and its relationship to justification.
The point, though, is that this is an EXCELLENT discussion of vocation, and a great introduction to what we keep talking about on this blog. (I appreciate the shout-outs to my work on the subject and the references to my book God at Work: Your Christian Vocation in All of Life.)
“Michael Horton and Rod Rosenbladt of the White Horse Inn sat down with Dan Siedell of Knox Theological Seminary and LIBERATE, to discuss the Reformation recovery of vocation and its relationship to the doctrine of justification.” (The video is 23 minutes, but worth every one.)
