Is Galatians 2 Relevant to Modern Racial Theory? Michael Heiser and ANE, Brandan Robertson’s Apostacy

Looked at Jared C. Wilson’s comments about Galatians 2 and the subject of race, as well as Duke Kwon’s citation of the same text, by looking carefully at Galatians 2 itself in its context. The social justice attempt to read the NT as a social justice document is indeed troubling, especially since Wilson is very much a part of Midwestern’s training of preachers and teachers. Then we briefly looked at Michael Heiser and what a “Biblical Semiticist” is, and finished up listening to Brandan Robertson proclaiming polyamorous relationships “holy,” and that as a “minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ.” Lord willing, we should be doing another program Thursday, and I should have my Coogi shoes by then, unless Rich intercepts the shipment and takes them hostage.

Dr. Mason’s The Woke Church’s Misrepresentation, Open Phones

Started off with a rebuttal of the misrepresentation published by Dr. Eric Mason in his new book (endorsed by many Reformed leaders) regarding yours truly and the May 11th meme I posted that insists that there is no room for “black spaces” or “white spaces” at the Lord’s Table, but only room for a singular focus upon Christ. This led to Mason calling for an “ecumenical council” to deal with “heretics” like…me. Then we went to the phones with all sorts of great calls on election, Israel, and one from Hasan about Mark 13:32 in reference to Islam. Covered a lot of ground! Hope it is helpful!

I forgot to mention that we have something exciting coming up next week! Yes indeed, yesterday a friend on Twitter posted a picture of a…Coogi shoe! Yes, a gloriously colorful shoe from Coogi. I promised to wear it and show it off on the DL if someone sent me a pair, so some folks made it happen and they are on the way! Get ready to turn down your monitor when I show off those babies! The really funny thing is that I recognized them as soon as I saw them because I had put them on my Amazon wishlist back in August, sort of on a lark, more to keep the link than anything else. I had forgotten that, but when I opened up my list there they were, sitting right above that item we all have on our wish lists that we know we will never get, but daydream about regularly (geek that I am, that item for me is a 12-inch Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope!). So be prepared to oooh and ahhh next week….though something tells me Rich might find a way to have a sudden “technical difficulty” with the cameras right at the point of the great reveal!  He’s an avowed anti-Coogi-ite.

Shawn McCraney and Ephesians 1 on Radio Free Geneva

On a special Radio Free Geneva episode today we examined the comments of Shawn McCraney of The Heart of the Matter up in Salt Lake City from his Tuesday night episode of his telecast where he not only went after Jeff Durbin and myself but likewise attempted to provide an interpretation of Ephesians 1:1-14 that he claims “shot to hell” the Reformed understanding (which he likewise described as being “full of it”).  Shawn is quite the colorful character, but his teaching is grossly in error, as we demonstrated.  Here is his original episode.  Just a bit over 90 minutes today!

Mormonism and the LGBTQ Movement, China’s Totalitarianism, Polight’s Confusion, Open Phones UPDATED

The copyright challenge by @vladtv has been lifted. This program is now available for viewing.

Talked a bit about the odd interaction Mormonism is having with the LGBTQ movement, and then covered some of the crack-down on religions (both Christianity and Islam) in China.  Then I played a few minutes from a fellow named “Polight” wherein he gets all confused about the Virgin Birth. Then we took calls on such subjects as John Piper on future justification, apologetic methodologies, and the concept of “mystery” in apologetics.

If you are wondering why you cannot watch the DL on YouTube, ask @vladtv who filed a DCMA complaint against it for our doing FAIR USE examination of the claims of Polight regarding his false statements about the Bible and its original languages. Please feel free to, respectfully, express to @vladtv your thoughts concerning their abuse of the “copyright” claim to suppress the obvious fair use analysis of just a few moments of one of their videos.

Romans 15:13, 1 Tim 4, Heb 7:24 and ἀπαράβατον, Church History without Racial Quotas

Started off with a lengthy discussion of the great text in Romans 15:13, then moved on to 1 Timothy 4:1-3 in light of the current situation in Rome.  Then looked very closely at the meaning of ἀπαράβατον at Hebrews 7:23-24 in light of a Mormon attempt to get around its meaning.  Finally closed out with a few comments on the teaching of church history and the attempt on the part of some to insert some kind of “racial quotas” into that difficult and challenging subject.
