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?

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!

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.
