The Benedict Option, Tim Keller, South Africa and London, and an Important Announcement

Started off the first DL after two weeks with a little conversation about the book, The Benedict Option, along with an article on Tim Keller’s speaking at Princeton (they are related).  Then started my report on my trip to South Africa and London, leading to an important announcement about my enrollment in the Ph.D. program at Northwest University in Potchefstroom, South Africa, working under Dr. Jordaan in textual criticism, focusing upon P45, an early third century manuscript that may provide important insights into the earliest period of the transmission of the text of the New Testament.

Last DL for Two Weeks: Disastrous Papacy, Licona/Dillahunty Debate

A one hour quick episode on my way to the airport, heading to South Africa and London.  Discussed the evolving story of the obvious fact that Pope Francis is, well, a bit to the left of center on things, and then spent most of the time looking at the debate between Matt Dillahunty and Mike Licona, allegedly on the resurrection.  Important issues!

The Advent of Moral Anarchy

It was not hard at all to put together a string of articles on the moral anarchy in Western culture today, especially on the “transgender” issue.  Touched on the conviction by a lower court of two men for daring to quote John 14:6 in public discussion in the UK.  Then talked about a few other items, including the upcoming debate on the Trinity with Mr. Ventilacion of Iglesia Ni Christo up in Rapid City, South Dakota on April 21st.  For those wondering, we kept it to an hour today!

The Rebellion of Transgenderism, then, A Challenge Fulfilled

First half hour or so was on the ascension of transgenderism and the use of the sexual revolution by the left to attack religious freedom in the United States, illustrated in today’s court ruling against the florist in Washington state.  Then we transitioned into a discussion of a challenge sent to me from Dr. Leighton Flowers regarding man’s inabilities due to sin, and we spent a full hour working through the key texts that teach the truth on this matter.

Finding the Balance, and A Little on Traditionalist Molinism

I even said on the program at the end, “I have no idea how I will describe this program today.”  Basically it was about finding balance, thinking through what is definitional and what is adiaphora (matters upon which different views can be held), first order doctrines versus second and third order doctrines, etc.  I discussed the idea of separationism that comes from fundamentalism, etc.  Like I said, hard to describe.  But at the end we looked at a comment from Rick Patrick illustrating the flow of thought in “Traditionalism,” and how it is from man to God, not the other way around.
