About This Show
Restitutio is a Christian theology podcast designed to get you thinking about biblical theology, church history, and apologetics in an effort to recover the original Christian faith of Jesus and the apostles apart from all of the later traditions that settled on it like so much sediment, obscuring and mutating primitive Christianity into dogma and ritual. Pastor Sean Finnegan, the host of Restitutio, holds to a Berean approach to truth: that everyone should have an open mind, but check everything against the bible to see how it measures up. Restitutio is also the home of Off Script, where Daniel Fitzsimmons and Rose Rider join Sean Finnegan to discuss how cultural forces are quietly molding us and how we can resist the pressure to conform to this age and follow Christ authentically in our complicated and confusing time. If you are looking for biblical unitarian resources, information about the kingdom of God, or teachings about conditional immortality, Restitutio is the Christian podcast for you.

Off Script 23: Worshiping Love
3 days ago
γToday we are starting a series based on Tim Keller’s book, Counterfeit Gods, wherein we’ll consider a number of idols that vie for worship in our society. In this episode we consider Aphrodite, the ancient goddess of love, and her modern counterparts. We begin by examining the somewhat dysfunctional love story of Jacob and Rachel in the book of Genesis. We conclude that love and romance are goods God has given people, but they should not be our ultimate pursuit or what we look to for salvation. In addition, Rose rebukes the tendency among Christians to hold out romance and marriage to singles as an ultimate goal to find completion. Dan also shares some great advice about attracting a godly spouse. Whether you are married or single, this Off Script episode will help you think through the proper place you should have for romantic love in your life.
