Restless: A Postmortem on the Young, Restless and Reformed

Welcome to Restless. This is a postmortem on everything Young, Restless and Reformed, sometimes called New Calvinism. In 2009 New Calvinism made Time Magazine’s list of “10 Ideas Changing the World Right Now.” 11 years later Matt and Michael investigate and discuss the rise and fall of New Calvinism.

This weeks review of The Rise and Fall of Mars Hills’ episode “Red Sky At Morning”. We discuss the medium and message and the church and why mass market appeal isn’t that appealing long term.

Here is us reacting to the the entirety of the now memory holed TGC multi-site discussion

The Thesis of this episode:

The media empire phase of the church took mars hill from being a mega church to a multi site media empire. These public triumphs covered up and actually may have been predicated on unhealthily and destructive church practices.

Restless does this reaction just for free for you all and probably because many of the conservative YRR types listen to as much or more of the Daily Wire than Matt does.

We get back to our series on 2 Peter’s supplements for 2022. You can find the first two episode in this series here and here. This is our second take at this with the first one sadly being lost forever. This is also Pastor Michael's flu game episode.

This week we discuss the call to supplement our faith with virtue, which is habit, gift, and grace rooted in who God seen in moral excellence in the world. 

We used a section of William Ames Marrow of Theology to structure our conversation. You can buy a hard copy here. And find it for free online at monergism

Restless reflects on Matt Chandler stepping aside from his ministry. What's going on? And will there be any New Calvinists left at the front of the YRR movement?

The episode is both personal in its reflection and considers if we can contribute these to broader trends.

The Restless boys were pulled away from their beloved Restless summer when TGC shared a long pull quote on Instagram

The Quote read,

Every culture and nation must find common consent in public ethics, specifically on what is prohibited, permitted, and promoted for the common good. True toleration must include living peaceably with deep differences. Most Western nations have extended marital status to arrangements other than heterosexual monogamy. The wise Christian will affirm the legal right of consenting adults to order their lives without fear; yet that right doesn’t entail affirming the goodness of these arrangements. Believers can be good neighbors to all while diverging on some moral issues.

Is this language cause for concern? Could it help Christians in difficult situation in the post-christian west? And who was the very real person who wrote it? All this and more in today's Restless...

We continue the conversation in our very good bonus Patreon Episode.
