Live DL Via Skype from Evergreen Colorado: Christianity Without the Bible Refuted

Started off with a brief refutation of the silliness promoted by Leighton Flowers, and then moved on to actually important issues.  First we discussed comments made by William Lane Craig about the historical Adam and the doctrine of original sin.  Then we noted that Andy Stanley appeared on Michael Brown’s radio program and attempted to defend his “unhitching the Old Testament” comments, which got back to the same issue we’ve addressed for a long time now: the fundamental theological errors amongst so many non-Reformed Protestants. Utilizing this article from Dr. Frank Turek (who is behind much of Stanley’s material) we examined this perspective.  Then we moved to a very recent Catholic Answers article by Douglas M. Beaumont presenting an almost identical argument as Turek (Beaumont is a convert to Romanism from Southern Evangelical Seminary).  We then documented a shamefully egregious abuse of a historical source (William Whittaker’s fine work, Disputations on Holy Scripture) by Beaumont in that same article.

Open Borders Means Anarchy and Lawlessness, Then Open Phones on Deep Theological Topics

While we were getting folks in line for open phones I commented for about ten minutes on the simple reality that “open borders” equals anarchy and the end of law, a concept that should not be attractive to any Christian whatsoever. Then we went to the phones to discuss a bunch of deep Trinitarian issues, as well as Eastern Orthodoxy, Roman Catholicism, Islam (and Aisha!), Mormonism and textual criticism.  Great calls folks!

Isaiah 44:24 and the LDS View of God, More on the Book of Abraham, Open Phones

Started off discussing Isaiah 44:24 and its relevance to Mormonism, then transitioned into a bit more on the Book of Abraham and its significance as a clear indication of Smith’s errors.  Then we looked at a few tweets from Rachel Held Evans and Kyle J. Howard in light of the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy.  Then we went to the phones and took about six calls on a wide variety of topics.

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.

Pelagians on Twitter, Man-Centered God at Bethel, Presuppositions in Ehrman, Open Phones

Started off looking at a Pelagian on Twitter by the name of “C G.”  Then played an entire ten minute long clip from a guy on the “Dead Raising Team” from Bethel Church in Redding about how we should believe in the goodness of people (please read Romans 3:10-18 over three times while pondering that concept).  Before going to the phones for the last part of the program we looked at how presuppositions impact arguments, such as those made by Bart Ehrman about the birth narratives in Matthew and Luke.
