Answered a few questions from listeners on the last show at the start (just realized I forgot to answer one that I will make a note of!) and then went straight to the phones with an amazingly wide variety of calls and topics…a little something for everyone! One call was on Hebrews 3:16 and why it differs between the KJV and the NASB, another was on Genesis 15 and the covenant (went long on that one), another on covenant children, and the last one was on conditionalism/annihilationism. Hope you are blessed and encouraged. At least I can guarantee you if you spend 100 minutes listening to this you will learn a whole lot more than if you spend the same time watching a Hallmark Christmas special!
Started off with the D. Wade debacle and the influence of the world’s insanity on “transgenderism.” Then we started a movement to have Francis renamed “Francis the Marxist” (it has a ring do it, I think). Mentioned the ecumenical “Mass” being held in St. Pierre, Calvin’s old haunts, and then got to the real topic of the day. We played portions from a single very long (3 hour) discussion of textual issues (Part 1 found here, part 2 found here) discussion of textual critical issues by Dr. Peter Gurry, James Snapp Jr., and Dr. Jeffrey Riddle, from the Talking Christianity–Apologetics YT channel. This is a very important discussion as it truly exposes the circular nature of the TR Only position as it is being promoted today.
Had a little fun at the start of the program with a bit of KJV Only fundamentalism, talked a little bit about the left’s promises in a campaign season, and spent the majority of the time responding to Trent Horne’s “rebuttal” of Jeff Durbin’s sermon on sola scriptura. Was going to get to some more Jay Dyer material on the same subject, but didn’t. Hope to on the next program.
Had to get the silly stuff out of the way first, so we looked at Andrew Sluder’s “KJB Numerology” where he uses verse numbers and their position in the Bible to prove its inspiration. Then we got serious and read through a Soteriology 101 article and dealt with its man-centeredness. Finished off with an RNS opinion piece that alleged that James Cone’s heresy really isn’t heresy, it is all about white power. Also had some further information about the Rome/Israel cruise and associated excursions.
I would rather post this as a blog article but I have found our software is very averse to special characters (such as the Papyri symbol) so I am skeptical it would work. So here is a link to the PDF of my 27 page refutation and rebuttal of Jeff Riddle’s attempt to defend the TR at Ephesians 3:9. This is an important read. Please pass it along to any brothers or sisters who have been taken in by this movement.
