Beyond Mega Length Edition of the DL: Textual Critical Topics, Islamic Topics, Response to Theodore Zachariades

Went two hours and eleven minutes today (sorry!), but had a lot to cover. Too many topics to list, but basically a lot on the new Tyndale House Greek New Testament, textual critical topics, Muslim apologetics issues, the Qur’an, and then responses to Dr. Theodore Zachariades on the topic of the decree of God and the will of man, i.e., the topic of compatibilism.  Only program this week as I am headed for St. Charles for my annual pilgrimage!

Orthodoxy, Justification, James 2, Dale Tuggy, and Jordan Hall Rebukes Rodney Howard-Browne

Jumbo (90 minute) edition of the program today starting off with a discussion of Hank Hanegraaff’s video in response to John MacArthur leading to a lengthy (though somewhat concise) exegesis of James 2:14-24.  After this I briefly addressed Dr. Dale Tuggy’s challenge to debate the Trinity.  Finally I spent the rest of the program discussing Jordan Hall’s interruption of a Rodney Howard-Browne service and its aftermath.  Yes, the attitude is directly related to the attitude displayed regarding the Free Will debate last week.

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!

A New Journal – Call for Articles

Do you or someone you know (sounds like a commercial) have a special interest in the following area: cults, the occult, new religious movement, world religions, and general apologetics? If so please touch base with me. I am working on putting together a journal titled Christianity And…A Countercult and Apologetics Journal. In conjunction with the Journal I am hoping to do an online Colloquium with few of the authors.

I am currently waiting for confirmations from a few men for editorial work, and I am looking for articles to publish. I hope the Journal will be ready by January 2018 (perhaps a bit sooner), so there is plenty of time to research, write, and rewrite. If you have access to seminaries where men are writing papers on these topics, perhaps you can pass along the word.

Currently we have only FB page, please make sure you like the page, and pass the link around: https://www.facebook.com/Christianity-And-A-Countercult-and-Apologetics-Journal-252157268500719/.

KJVO Discussion, the Pope Escapes His Handlers Again, Debate Tomorrow, the Trinitarian Controversy

Covered a WIDE range of topics today.  Started off expressing our deep condolences to Tony Bartolucci and his family in the death of his daughter Giana.  Then we discussed the debate we will be doing tomorrow at 4pm with representatives of the Hebrew Israelite movement.  Moved from there to a discussion of Jeremiah 34:16 and Romans 13:9 and King James Onlyism.  Then we discussed the Pope escaping his handlers again and proclaiming live-in cohabitations valid marriages, and finally spent a good half an hour or more on the “Eternal Functional Subordination” controversy, spending some time reading from Reymond’s Systematic Theology as well.  A wide variety of topics, to be sure!

I mentioned some links I was going to include to K. Scott Oliphint’s discussions of the assets of the Son.  They are found here and here.
