Brief Thoughts on the Ehrman/Williams Dialogue and the Licona/Howe Dialogue, Then Open Phones

I guess inerrancy was the theme in looking at just a few portions of the discussion between Peter Williams and Bart Ehrman on Justin Brierley’s Unbelievable program and then Mike Licona’s discussion with Richard Howe. After that we tried to sneak callers in for the last 15 minutes…and ended up going half an hour, so, 75 minutes total.

Bishop Swan’s Racism, Pronouns Matter, Jeffrey Riddle’s Abuse of P46

Started off with the outrageous, racist rants of “His Grace, the Right Reverend Bishop Talbert Wesley Swan II” (straight from his wikipedia page) and his swinging the club of “white supremacy” at anyone or anything, logic, rationality and truth notwithstanding. Then we considered the advice of the left edge of evangelicalism’s fall into the morass of cultural confusion, this time looking at Preston Sprinkle and J.D. Greear’s “pronoun hospitality.” Then we dove deep into the attempt to impugn (and twist) the witness of papyri manuscript P46 at Ephesians 3:9 by Dr. Jeffrey Riddle in this article. Those of you who normally just listen will really want to watch that section as it is heavily graphic-dependent. Important materials and issues!

A Ton of Important Stuff But Too Long for a Title!

Started off noting that the entire social justice issue has been declared to be a non-issue today—so thankful we will never have to talk about it again! Then we looked at a little Kyle James Howard (that always gets you smiling), and then moved on to more important things. Responded to Bassam Zawadi on a post he wrote about Christian history, and then played a clip from my debate in South Africa with Yusuf Ismail. Finally I went through 15 objections a convert from Mormonism to Judaism posted recently involving prophecies, textual variants, and the like. 80 minutes!Here is the YouTube link: Live Video Stream The Dividing Line is on YouTube video.

Marty Sampson’s Instagram Article, Faithfulness, and then 30 Minutes of Open Phones

Apostasy isn’t a fun topic, but a necessary one, so we talked about Marty Sampson’s leaving the faith, walked through his Instagram post, talked about Paul’s experience with Demas, etc. for about an hour.  Then we opened the phones for 30 minutes with calls on lots of topics including Roman Catholicism.

An In-Depth Look at Ephesians 1

Spent the hour looking closely at the background and meaning of Ephesians 1:3-11 in light of objections to Reformed theology. Sometimes, you just want to let Scripture be Scripture.  Enjoy!
