Lord, forgive your servants for the awfulness of Tim and Lewis. Also, for recording this three weeks ago and Lewis just putting it out now. Don't judge us.

Merry Christmas! In this episode, Tim and Lewis return with much laughter and not a lot of sense. It is Christmas Eve, after all. And that's okay. You've come to expect little from us, and you got it! =)

In this episode, Tim and Lewis come back to celebrate 500 years of the Reformation, and come up with a novel new idea. I mean, it's not on par with the free gift of salvation, but, you know, it's alright.

In this episode, Tim and Lewis come back after a pretty raucous month in the States. Riots, words, hurricanes, everything is fair game in this week's edition of BItV! Tune in!

Aug 9, 2017

In this episode, Tim and Lewis talk about social media etiquette and how certain people don't understand character, the third use of the Law, sanctification, and a bunch of other stuff. Also, Lewis sort of swears. It's not horrible. The swear, not the episode. The episode is garbage. Listen in!

In this episode, Tim and Lewis parse a tweet that makes no sense whatsoever. They then try to answer a question from Chris, but end up ranting for most of the episode. And apparently, Lewis likes to sing in a high register on Sunday nights. It's a doozy.

In this episode... You know what? Just don't do patriotic services. It's not cool. Also, don't let kids die.

In this episode, Tim and Lewis talk about all the neighbors we have that claim to be Muslim. We're thankful most don't claim to be Islamists.

Tim and Lewis actually take the opportunity to answer a couple of questions from Katie and Cliff... from last year... because no one sends us questions anymore since we were off the air and then came back. It's okay. We still love you. We just want your questions, ok? 'Cuz then we're more likely to talk about the things YOU care about and not just whatever we want... which is interesting to us, but probably no one else.

In this episode, Tim and Lewis talk about the world, "Christian culture," the culture of the Church, how to think, how to act, sanctification, conforming to the mind of Christ, and bad Holy Week practices, including a funeral for Jesus. You don't want to miss it!

Oh, man. I can't believe it's been 4 months! That's crazy! And you're still here? You're still listening to us? Wow. You're impressive. Obviously, a scholar and a gentleman/gentlewoman. Lewis and Tim are back in the episode, talking about life, Trump, and the pursuit of happyness [sic]. Just kidding. They're just up to their old antics.

Everything you wanted to know about the film Fare with writer/director/actor Thomas Torrey.  We give spoilers; Thomas explains everything he was aiming for and the risks he wanted to take; and we talk marriage, love, C.S. Lewis, and the message and purpose of good art.  Tim is very excited about this one.

What in the world?  A Boars episode?  It's only been two months.  A short episode where Tim gets annoyed with mixing the State and the Church.

The return of Good Tweet/Bad Tweet! Other podcasts may copy what we're doing, but we're the original. I mean, we're no good at it, but whatever. Tim and Lewis talk about quizzes from women.com (here, here, and here) about what it means to be Lutheran (you don't have to get 100% to listen to our show, but it helps). Then, they play Good Tweet/Bad Tweet and go over some Christian MeMEs. It's ridiculous.

In yet one more topical episode, Tim and Lewis talk about some very difficult things and decisions regarding a pastor who falls away from the right teaching of Christ. We also talk about the Biblical qualifications, or descriptions, of a pastor. And we ask, too, shouldn't we be more thoughtful with these things before they occur. It's a good discussion; we hope you enjoy it.

In this episode, Tim and Lewis chat about Advent, the importance of the liturgical tradition, and a bit about Liberal Fundamentalism (which is what we wanted the show to be about and spend maybe all of 10 minutes on). Blessed Advent!

In this episode, Tim and Lewis basically talk the US election and bad tweets. There's something about elections that makes bad theology (even from good pastors) prevalent. SMOD cometh without our vote.

In this episode, the boys come back to a hopefully regularly scheduled release. They also eschew anything they normally do to talk about the Reformation and its celebratory season, All Saints' Day, and the upcoming U.S. Election. Somehow, they cohosts tie it all together... they think.

In this episode, Tim and Lewis are back. After shaking the rust off, they get into talking about how not to be disillusioned with life by the American presidential campaign. They also play some Good Tweet/Bad Tweet. Man, it's good to be back in the saddle.

In this episode, Tim records on his own because summer is hard. We wanted to make sure that we had something out there for y'all, so Tim did a quick podcast. Lewis hasn't listened to it, and all the editing and music splicing is Tim's fault. =) Have a great week! We'll be back soon!

In this episode, Tim and Lewis address the major happenings in America over the last few weeks regarding race. It's not a funny show, but it's timely, we believe. Let us know what you think.

In this episode, Lewis and Tim talk about #Brexit, albeit without much knowledge (though to be fair, no one seems to know much). After the break, they play some Good Tweet/Bad Tweet and answer questions from David and Paul. It's good to be back.

In this episode, Tim and Lewis interview Thomas Torrey, a writer, director, actor, and the founder of Bad Theology Pictures. Recently, at a film festival, Tim met Thomas after the screening of Thomas' new movie, "Fare." Thomas has some very interesting perspectives on Christians and art. We think you'll like this interview. The break is the trailer for "Fare." Check it out soon!
