Hank Hanegraaf and Eastern Orthodoxy, David Allen’s Refutation, and an Insightful FB Conversation

Went just under Mega length today (about 1:50) with three topics: the news coming out last evening that Hank Hanegraaff of CRI has entered the Eastern Orthodox Church for the first 45 minutes or so, then an examination of some of the claims made by Dr. David Allen in his book on the atonement, specifically by name in response to me, and finally a review of a very interesting conversation between myself, Ijaz Ahmed, and Abu Ayoub on secularization and the Christian Church.  Talk about covering a wide range again, but, hey, it’s the Dividing Line!

Resources on Eschatology Then Matt Walsh, Rome, and Mary as Mediatrix

First portion of the program was on eschatology (gasp!) and some resources that you might find useful on the topic.  Then we moved over to Roman Catholicism in reference to Matt Walsh, the move to have Mary named Co-Redemptrix in a dogmatic fashion, and the narrowing of the cultural landscape that will force believers and Roman Catholics closer and closer together. Hope it is helpful and challenging!

Reformation Tour, Allen Debate Invitation, Rome and Mary, and More

Covered a pretty wide range today, starting with Mike O’Fallon talking about the upcoming Reformation Tour in Europe in September.  Then we moved on to my debate invitation for David Allen.  Then we played a video from Catholic Answers on why Mary is called “woman” by Jesus, demonstrating what happens when you deny sola scriptura.  Then we looked at a Muslim video on the crucifixion of Jesus, and finished off with a KJVO conspiracy theory that I am preparing the world for the mark of the Beast (which I might add, according to two papyri copies of Revelation, is 616, not 666).

An Invitation to Dr. David Allen

An Open Invitation to Dr. David Allen

Subject:  Moderated, Respectful, Scholarly Public Debate

Topic:  Resolved: The Book of Hebrews Teaches Jesus the Messiah Died to Redeem the Entire Human Race Without Exception, That Is, Christ Died for Every Human Being Who Has Ever Lived, is Alive Today, or Ever Will Live

Dr. Allen Affirms

Dr. White Denies

October, 2017, Dallas Texas

Argument:  Dr. Allen has, for a few years now, spearheaded the “Traditionalist” effort at arguing against the Reformed doctrine of particular atonement. He has spoken on the subject many times, and has now released a book as well. He lives in the Dallas area, so having a debate in that area means he will not have to travel. Limiting the topic to a biblical scope helps the audience focus upon the key issues, for as the length of such books as From Heaven He Came and Sought Her and Dr. Allen’s own demonstrate, the topic can become rather obscure and verbose. Further, limiting the discussion to Hebrews should make the effort all that much easier for Dr. Allen.  He has written a full commentary on Hebrews as well.  I will be in Dallas twice in October, and hence a range of dates could be arranged for the debate.  I hope Dr. Allen will invest the time to engage this topic and assist the many who would like to hear a biblically-based, exegetically sound discussion of this vital topic.

If Dr. Allen is amenable to this invitation, please contact Rich Pierce at the Alpha and Omega Ministries offices, 602-973-4602 so that arrangements can be commenced.

Meditation in the Midst of Madness

”אֹהֲבֵ֥י יְהוָ֗ה שִׂנְא֫וּ רָ֥ע שֹׁ֭מֵר נַפְשׁ֣וֹת חֲסִידָ֑יו מִיַּ֥ד רְ֝שָׁעִ֗ים יַצִּילֵֽם׃א֭וֹר זָרֻ֣עַ לַצַּדִּ֑יק וּֽלְיִשְׁרֵי־לֵ֥ב שִׂמְחָֽה׃שִׂמְח֣וּ צַ֭דִּיקִים בַּֽיהוָ֑ה וְ֝הוֹד֗וּ לְזֵ֣כֶר קָדְשֽׁוֹ׃“

(Psalm 97:10-12)

“οἱ ἀγαπῶντες τὸν κύριον, μισεῖτε πονηρόν·

φυλάσσει κύριος τὰς ψυχὰς τῶν ὁσίων αὐτοῦ,

ἐκ χειρὸς ἁμαρτωλῶν ῥύσεται αὐτούς.

φῶς ἀνέτειλεν τῷ δικαίῳ

καὶ τοῖς εὐθέσι τῇ καρδίᾳ εὐφροσύνη.

εὐφράνθητε, δίκαιοι, ἐπὶ τῷ κυρίῳ

καὶ ἐξομολογεῖσθε τῇ μνήμῃ τῆς ἁγιωσύνης αὐτοῦ.”

(Psalm 96:10-12)

Oh lovers of Yahweh! Detest evil!

He is the preserver of the souls of His godly ones.

He delivers from the hand of the wicked.

Light is shed abroad for the righteous.

And for the pure of heart there is joy.

Oh righteous ones, rejoice in Yahweh!

Confess (give thanks for) the memory of His holiness!

(Psalm 97:10-12, personal)

I had to begin with this text for my own sanity.  You have Vimeo shutting down explicitly Christian voices that dare to defy the new dogma of the Totalitarians.  You have the madness, insanity, twistedness of trans-mania flowing like a flood across the land, being forced into the minds of children by willing “educators” (i.e., indoctrinators). You literally have the degradation of the English language, so that we are being told we MUST bow down and say absurd things like “they is leaving now” or “Zir is here” (Zir not being an alien demigod from another planet—and my autocorrect, thankfully, continues to dislike it, too).  You MUST say these words or we will punish you, silence you, exile you, fine you.  We have men in dresses setting new “records” in women’s sports, and we are to be in awe of them and rejoice in their bravery!  We have a morally sensitive Vice President who shows himself mature, masculine, wise, and loving toward his wife, and he is mocked for having what is nothing more than common sense in his behavior toward women and his honoring of true, natural, God-blessed marriage (the ONLY such union God has ever blessed, blesses today, or will ever bless).  We have the state of California, where the Constitution of the United States no longer has any validity, run by socialist totalitarians, bought and paid for by Molech himself, aka, Planned Non-Parenthood (with taxpayer funds no less), engaging in the selective abuse of the law in charging those who exposed PP for the baby-butchering, money-grubbing den of death eaters they are, with felonies, with violation of the law (inverting the very meaning of “law” itself).  And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

We are in danger of being washed away in the flood of evil (yes, please, please, stop calling it sickness—a flu virus is a sickness: Molech Inc. chopping up living babies for profit is evil) and, being exposed to it day in and day out, our senses will be dulled.  Unless, that is, we are exposed daily to God’s truth, so that, by His Spirit, we can be renewed and re-energised as God’s “holy ones.”  Meditate upon the above portion of one of the songs of God’s people.  Consider its exhortations (hating evil is good: always remember that includes the evil you yourself do and contemplate, not just that in the actions of others) and its promises.  Light is indeed sown for the righteous.  Mourn for the totalitarians who persecute and berate and attack, for they walk in darkness, and will, as the Word promises, fall into the pit. And finally, rejoice, be glad in heart, not because of what our eyes see and our ears hear of the constantly increasing wickedness of men around us, but be glad in our God.  Confess that He is holy, and find great joy in His justice and righteousness.  God will set everything aright in the final judgment.  That day is coming.
