1 Timothy 2, Men and Women in the Church, then a Full Review of Shapiro/Craig

Spent the first half an hour or so looking at 1 Timothy 2 and the relationship of men and women in leadership roles in the church.  Then we talked a bit about Jeff Durbin’s encounter with Andy Stanley that took place just this morning (the recordings will be posted May 30 (I would have typed 5/30 but it was recorded in London so it would be written 30/5 for them!).  Then we moved into the Ben Shapiro interview of William Lane Craig for the last 45 minutes of the program, discussing apologetics and theology and approach.  Enjoy!

Drawing the Lines: Matt Walsh, Serene Jones, Ron Underwood

Did a live DL from London (Westminster) today via Zoom (worked really well!) discussing how we “draw the lines,” using three examples to provide us with some perspective for this challenging discussion.  We looked at Matt Walsh, Roman Catholic, who was interviewed on the CrossPolitic program last week.  Then we looked at Serene Jones, head of Union Theological Seminary, and comments she made in a recent NYT article.  Then we looked at comments made directly to me and about me by Ron Underwood, a Denver area resident who, I think, would find John Calvin insufficiently Calvinistic.  How do we know what is definitional of the faith?  What about inconsistencies?  Traditions?  Are Arminians all lost and going to hell?  Are Calvinists going to hell if they are not sufficiently hard-nosed about it?  What about Rome?  Lots of things to think about today from London!

Mega Edition of the Dividing Line: Andy Stanley, 3 Mormons, and a Bit More

Spent nearly an hour and 20 minutes listening to and interacting with the discussion between Jonathan Merritt and Andy Stanley at the beginning of the program. Dr. Albert Mohler spent a solid ten minutes on the same exchange on this morning’s edition of The Briefing (recommended).  Then we moved over to playing some clips from a YouTube channel called 3Mormons, discussing the LDS doctrine of God. The last few minutes I addressed recent activity in social media.  Just over two hours in length today!

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.

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!
