Over the last couple of years on the Postscript, we have been walking through the history of the Church. The last few episodes on this subject, we have been discussing the Reformation. We have discussed Jan Hus, John Wycliffe, Martin Luther and the Anabaptists.
Today we are sitting down with pastor and Church History instructor Greg Axe to discuss the Counter Reformation. We set the context with the setting, particularly the age of European exploration and expansion coupled with two key Catholic players, Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Jesuits (1534 AD) and Pope Paul III, overseer of the Council of Trent (1545 AD).
In this conversation, we discuss the ways in which the Roman Catholic Church sought to entrench its reformers against the Church as official enemies of the state by the authority of the Council of Trent, giving the Catholic Church the right to anathematize people in over 100 instances - which council stands today as one of the most foundational doctrinal documents of the Catholic Church.

In this episode with Dr. Scott Pace, Dean of The College at Southeastern and Vice President for Undergraduate Studies we discuss the widely lost art of invitational ministry, particularly the work of calling growing leaders to fulfill their potential as pastors or missionaries.
Also, take some time to hear from one of your fellow classmates, Hunter Sbisa on this weeks Postscript Shorts
We sit down with Pastor Mitch Dobson, Professor of Bible Survey at Living Faith Bible Institute to discuss biblical principled efficiency in ministry in the areas of authority structures and healthy flow of communication. Mitch begins with his testimony, background in compliance within the realm of business and his current role on the pastoral team at Midtown Baptist Temple. In this episode we define the spiritual gift of "governments" (1 Cor. 12:28) and examine ways of identifying people within a body who function supernaturally in this way. Lastly, we examine the difference between principle and policy, how they differ and how they are important considerations for the local church as well as its individual ministries.
Dan Jalowiec joins us today to share his testimony of salvation and how that led to a missionary call to Zambia, Africa for him and his wife, Jan. Dan shares many ways in which he has experienced God’s grace along the way. He discovered the mission field of Zambia on his very first mission trip, after a long career with his wife Jan in optometry. Most recently, Dan and Jan have planned to return to Zambia for more focused cultural and linguistic training; this time they will be without their children who have grown and are trusting Christ in their own endeavors as they have come to maturity.
