Sam Harris and Bart Ehrman Chat Christianity, Open Phones on Many Topics

Spent a little time on some comments made in an interview between Sam Harris and Bart Ehrman at the beginning of the program (after just a few minutes noting Jim Wallis’ extolling of James Cone) and then moved to calls. Spent way too much time trying to deal with a super technical call (I went back to it later when I was able to grab the relevant commentary from my system), and had to move past another call simply because I have not read the book being discussed and have stayed out of one particular theological controversy (shocking!).  Managed to get through the others though!  90 minutes.

God Made Man and Woman. PERIOD. Then Back to William Lane Craig and Presuppositionalism

The first half of the program was prompted by the Presidential statement (Tweet!) on “transgenders” in the military and the reactions to it from the secular totalitarians.  What are the worldview implications and foundations? Then in the second half of the program we went back to the last portion of the comments made by Dr. William Lane Craig on the Eric Hernandez/Sye Ten Brugencate discussion on apologetic methodology.  Important, and hopefully useful, material on a jumbo (90 minute) edition of the program.

More on WLC and Apologetic Methodology (First Hour), Karlo Broussard on the Alleged Parallels Between Atheism and Sola Scriptura

First hour we played material relevant to apologetic methodology as William Lane Craig continues his very interesting, if somewhat confusing, interaction with the debate Sye did on the radio.  But we only got halfway through that, as I wanted to review some comments by Karlo Broussard on catholic.com attempting (badly) to parallel atheism with Protestantism (specifically, a belief in sola scriptura).  We will continue the review of WLC on the next program.

A Mega Dividing Line with 50 Minutes of Open Phones

Too many topics to even start to list, but mainly in the opening I discussed the upcoming debates in South Dakota and London, then discussed a meme Ijaz Ahmad posted over the weekend, and then read all of William Lane Craig’s answer to a very insightful question sent to him.  Then we took phone calls on…every topic imaginable!  Only DL this week, so we had to make it interesting!

William Lane Craig, Andy Stanley, and Albert Mohler, Then, Surah 9, Islam, and the Changed Heart

A Mega sized DL today, two full hours, with the first 1:15 dedicated to reviewing and responding to the Reasonable Faith podcast of 3/27 and its defense of Andy Stanley (which sounded more to me like a backhanded attack on Dr. Mohler to be honest).  You see, apologetics is not theology, folks, and that is why you can treat the unbeliever as a neutral moral agent and let him judge God’s existence!  And why you don’t have to worry about things like the Flood, the Exodus, or even the Virgin Birth!  Yes indeed folks, we played the whole thing.  Then we shifted gears, massively so, and I spent the last 45 minutes reading relevant materials regarding Surah 9, jihad, Muslim/Christian relations, and basically asked the question, isn’t the real issue one of the heart?
