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.

G3 Debate Report, Being Fair in Dealing with the Qur’an

Did a little under 100 minutes on the program today dealing with the debate with Adnan Rashid and then looking at Surah 3 and the allegation that I should not be witnessing to Muslims.  We mentioned the printing of a tract I wrote decades ago, The Christian Message, which is now available from the folks at One Million Tracts.  You can find it here.

2 John 11 Abused by Imbalanced Calvinists, the Death of LDS President Monson, Further Response to Ijaz Ahmad

Started off looking carefully at the text of 2 John 7-11 once again, this time as it has been abused by ostensibly Reformed folks.  Then we looked at some of the shenanigans of the “only Calvinists are saved” brigade on line.  Moved eventually to the death of LDS President Monson and the continued need to pray for God to pour out repentance upon the LDS people.  Finally returned to Ijaz Ahmad’s video on Scriptural “corruption” for the last 25 minutes or so.
