Micro-Aggression Worship Songs, Tweets from the MLK50 Conference, Ehrman on the Gospel Writers, Open Phones

Covered a number of odd things coming out of the MLK50 Conference, including a “worship song” that included the concept of “micro-aggressions” (just finding a way to put that tongue stopper in a line of music deserves credit!) and a tweet insisting that “White Evangelicalism” (whatever that is) “owes” the “black community” monetary investment.  Then we got back to the Ehrman/Licona debate, looking at one of Ehrman’s arguments promoting historical skepticism.  Then went to calls on all sorts of topics including the LBCF and CBGM (love those acronyms).  Enjoy!

Christian Renewal Focused on True Knowledge of Christ vs. Neo-Marxism (First Hour) then…Coherence Based Genealogical Method Introduction!

Not sure a program could have two more different topics, but I managed to pull it off today!  Spent the first 55 minutes starting off with a study of Colossians 3:9-11.  I then focused upon what this text means as to the proper, biblical basis of Christian unity in the body of Christ.  I then made application to the growing promotion of neo-Marxism in the West and, sadly, in the evangelical church as well.  Tough topics to cover.  Then we completely switched gears and I began a very, very basic introduction to CGBM: Coherence-Based Genealogical Methodology in New Testament textual criticism.  Yes, it’s THAT geeky.  But, we have folks who like in-depth stuff like that, and I am neck-deep in it in my own studies, so that’s what we did!  Enjoy!

Philosophical “Response,” Racialism Again, Calls Including Church of Christ Question

Started off with some brief comments on a response posted by Dr. Davis in reply to the last program, and then spent quite a while on the race issue once again due to comments on line by Urban Apologetics and Kyle Howard.  Took a call from our brother Kofi up north, had problems with the phones, and managed to get to only two other calls due to those technical issues, one on the Church of Christ and the concept of law keeping.

Radio Free Geneva: Calvinism’s Gospel Tautology Refuted

On Radio Free Geneva today we examined this article from Dr. Rich Davis titled “Calvinism’s Gospel Tautology.”  This is a classic example of “philosophical traditionalism vs. exegetical accuracy” when it comes to Reformed polemics.  Only an hour today, but at least you got to hear the RFG intro!  UPDATE:  Dr. Davis provided a “response” of sorts after the program aired.  I put “response” in quotes because it completely ignores the main point of my reply: the exegetical errors made in his article that then led him to his false philosophical argumentation.  This is a classic example of how philosophers privilege their philosophy above the actual content of the exegesis of the Scriptures.  Read it for yourself and compare!

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.
