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!

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.

Chasing Textual Criticism into BYU, then Open Phones

Started off with a (to me) really interesting discussion of a recent study in textual criticism that led me, in the minutes just before the program, off into the woods of Mormonism and BYU.  At least I thought it was fascinating!  But we eventually got out of the woods and did open phones on a wide variety of topics (isn’t that what open phones are all about?).  Almost 90 minutes in length today.

Humanzees, Jordan Peterson, Parallel Gospels, and Open Phones

Spent most of the start of the show looking at a video from Jordan Peterson and interacting with the concepts of suffering and human purpose in his lectures.  Dr. Peterson has been great in exposing the fundamental flaws and simple irrationality of many of the left’s pet projects today, and we can be very thankful for that, but we cannot use that as an excuse to not point out that the best a Jungian evolutionary worldview can produce (consistently) is a form of Pelagianism, a “pull yourself up by your bootstraps” moralism that lacks the key ingredients provided by full gospel proclamation.  We then moved on a brief discussion about Ehrman and historical standards, and then took a number of calls on a variety of topics.

What Justin Martyr Actually Said, Transmission of the Text, Open Phones

Discussed Justin Martyr’s words in reference to Malachi 1:11 as found in his Dialogue with Trypho (in reference to a call from Tuesday), and then went over a textual critical issue relating to partial manuscripts.  Then we opened the phones and, as normal, covered a ton of topics, with a lot on the Trinity and the relationship of Father, Son and Spirit.
