Setting the Record Straight: Dr. Michael Brown Our Special Guest

Didn’t bother starting off the year quietly as over the holidays a number of internet-based ministries were throwing out the hate against me for my relationship with Dr. Michael Brown.  In the process a number of articles were posted that displayed the same kind of “let’s not worry about thinking clearly, let’s surely not even ponder being fair, but let’s throw everything including the kitchen sink in here in hopes something will stick” kind of yellow journalism that I have been subjected to for years.  Since specific allegations against Dr. Brown’s Christology were included, I contacted him and asked him to come on the air, which he graciously agreed to do.  We ended up talking about a lot of stuff, including the allegation that he is a “NAR super apostle,” defends “grave sucking,” and all the rest.  During the program, Pulpit and Pen, C3ChurchWatch, EBCMinistries, CrossRoads Radio, and Richard Haas (a P&P contributor) all worked together to do a tweet-storm with the hash-tag “ElephantRoom3.”  The fact that it is dishonest to even connect the events with Jakes and this discussion with Michael Brown does not bother these folks—the Inquisitors who turned the cranks on the racks in the dungeons of the Spanish Inquisition believed themselves to be doing the work of God.  When you live in the narrow, small world of the ultra-orthodox, where everyone must look like you and act like you and speak like you, you have no perspective from which to be able to see your utter lack of balance. In any case, an open and honest conversation that, for those with ears to hear, should be helpful, and challenging.

Remembering RC, Then, Refuting More Textual Traditionalism

Started off playing a half hour interview from 2008 with RC Sproul remembering and celebrating a wonderful gift to Christ’s church.  Then we completely shifted gears and got into the issues raised by A James White Christmas Carol, an animation movie about Luke 23:34 that is desperately dishonest at its base (regarding the false accusation of my attacking David Wood, for example) and thoroughly indefensible in its presuppositions.  Be warned!  This is a jumbo-mega, almost 2.5 hours in length!  Sorry about that!  But lots of textual and historical discussion included.

Daily Bible Reading Plan for 2018

It is about that time of the year when we are introduced to creative ways to read our Bible for the next calendar year. Did you do it this year?

This is my tenth year encouraging others to take each day of the year to read and reflect on a single unit in the Gospels. Did you know there are about 365 units in the Gospels? In the past, I cited five good reasons to own a Gospel Synopsis. The fifth reason is:

“Read a synopsis in one year by reading one pericope [a gospel unit] every day. By coincidence, the synopsis contains 367 pericopes. That is, all four Gospels combined contain 367 units.

Get the following edition soon before the first of year so you are ready to go: Synopsis of the Four Gospels

 

Ephesians 4:29-32 Applied to Christian Communication, A Hack-Job Video, and Francis’ Unorthodox Views

Started off with some geeky stuff, a few new books, etc., then moved to Ephesians 4 and how we are to behave as believers, especially in the realm of communication.  Moved seamlessly into a hack-job video that P&P is promoting, a personal attack upon me.  Played the whole thing showing how whoever produced it (Hall knows and isn’t saying) purposefully avoided context, proper categories, etc., and sought only to mislead the viewer.  It is dishonest at its core.  After that had a few brief comments on Mormonism, and then finished up with an article about Pope Francis’ unorthodox views.  A 90 minute edition today!

Speaking the Truth in Love, Destroying Others, then Back to the Free Will Debate

Started off with biblical discussions regarding how Christians are to interact with others, leading to some thoughts about those who wish to “destroy” others in the name of Christ.  Then turned back to the Free Will debate that was the subject of the previous program, listening and responding along the way.  105 minutes today!  More than a jumbo, less than a mega!
