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!

A Mega Dividing Line on Lots of Topics!

Had not planned on going nearly two hours but time goes by so fast!  Started off reading from the Institutes of the Christian Religion by John Calvin.  Then we moved on to reading a portion from Brave New World.  You’ll have to listen to hear why!  Made some comments, and then shifted gears completely and played a video by Yahya Snow on the issue of Zaynab b. Jash and the Qur’an.  Then we finished up with a discussion of a very small portion of Leighton Flowers’ comments on common and prevenient grace, etc.  Lots of topics!

Radio Free Geneva: A Nearly Three Hour Examination of “Traditional” Anthropology

Just avoided going for a full three hours, but we reviewed Dr. Leighton Flowers’ podcast from September 26, 2016, which was ostensibly about those who never hear, but was much more about how Calvinism is a bad theology. In any case, it gave us the foundation for looking very carefully at Flowers’ views, as they are being presented to a wide audience of Southern Baptists. We likewise touched upon some of his attempted response to Romans 8:5-7 as well.

A Little AHA, and a Long Review of a Roman Catholic Response on John 6

Spent a few moments discussing the antics of AHA (which continued through the program) and then played the entirety of a 14 minute response by Bob Sullivan to the “John 5 for Roman Catholics” episode we did a few weeks ago.  I had not watched it, so we got to watch it live!
