Persecution of Christians Around the World

An Hour Long Discussion About What Matters: Freedom, Dividing Lines, Catholicity, the Lordship of Christ

Don’t even know how to describe today other than, “I’ve wanted to address these issues for a long, long time.  Let’s do it.”  Many will disagree, but hopefully, will think hard about why, and that’s the important issue for me.  Sounds a bit cryptic…just listen and you’ll figure it out!

Preaching Jesus on the Jersey Shore

This is a brief clip from the street preaching ministry here in Jersey. I was told that this most recent preaching tour was more hostile than typical because people feel more emboldened to be intolerant toward Christians after the Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage. Nevertheless, a fellow came up to one of the preachers at the end and asked him, “How can I be saved?” Let’s remember that open-air preaching is the normative biblical means by which the Gospel is proclaimed to the lost.

My Full Response to the Dr. Drew “After Show” Video

I honestly thought it would take about fifteen minutes to cover this three minute video.  I was, uh, wrong.  Big time.  Took the entire hour.  But, I wanted to respond to the comments made by Dr. Drew and his panelists (especially when one of them said I was insane) and hopefully in so doing demonstrate the utter emptiness of the secular worldview.  Hold onto your hats—if consistency is important to you, listening especially to these two young ladies can be a bit on the frustrating side!

A Wide-Ranging, Important, Jumbo-Sized Dividing Line!

Started off commenting on a number of issues, such as the anti-Christian discrimination of the Mayor of Atlanta.  Discussed the radical Muslim murders in Paris, seeking once again to ask my serious Muslim friends to consider what it is about their faith that allows such things (it’s a spiritual issue—can Islam address it?), and I briefly responded to Jason Stellman as well.  Then I undertook to address a really tough issue, that being the problem of the Hebrew Massoretic text and the death of Goliath.  Get a deep seat in the saddle for this discussion, as I play a clip from a newly posted Sam Gipp video as the background.  Then, right as TurretinFan was going to join me to begin a discussion of Devin Rose’s book, The Protestant’s Dilemma, Rich interrupted me to let me know that Moody Radio had called.  I had been scheduled to debate Devin Rose Saturday morning at 8am CST on the program Up for Debate on the topic, “Can a Roman Catholic be evangelical?”  But Mr. Rose, despite his bravado (see below) in claiming his book “destroys” mine, pulled a “Brave Sir Robin” and informed them that he would not come on the program if I was the one with whom he would be debating.  So they chose to go with a Moody professor. Well, TurretinFan and I still did our review of the first portion of Rose’s book, and will continue to do so in future editions of the Dividing Line.  We just won’t expect any responses from Mr. Rose, who evidently is already aware he is wholly incapable of defending his published work.

Devin Rose’s triumphalistic video, which now rings very, very hollow in light of his flight from an opportunity to press his case in a debate hosted on a national radio network:

The Vile Hate Mongering of Dan Savage

I posted the following on FaceBook earlier today together with this picture of a tweet by Dan Savage, the infamous promoter of immorality:

This tweet by Dan Savage illustrates the very essence of the reprobate mind, it truly does. Josh Alcorn’s parents refused to pay to mutilate the body of their son in hopes that his sexual confusion could be addressed. How terrible! How horrible! They must be hated for daring to believe that it is wrong to mutilate bodies and pretend to be someone *God did not make you to be.* Never forget, folks: these people will NOT allow you to follow the commands of Christ. You are to be hated if you do. It is as simple as that. May God protect His own from evil men like Dan Savage and those who rally with him in their utter rejection of God’s ways.

Well, Savage sent his minions over to start posting simple insanity (and that is what it is) in the comments, so I had to privatize it.  So, since he can’t do that here, I am reposting it.

It is evil, morally evil, morally reprehensible, to attack Josh Alcorn’s parents for being 1) Christians, and 2) sane.  These moral monsters (Dan Savage and every single person calling for hatred of Josh’s parents, to the point of seeking their prosecution!) can barely cover their detestation of the gospel of Christ, godliness, and the Christian worldview; and when they join together in their celebration of evil, they lose all semblance of sanity. They are literally spewing hatred against people who refused to give in to a child’s delusional desires to mutilate himself.  Can you imagine that? The moral insanity of it is shocking—well, it should be shocking, but in this upside down day where good is evil and evil is good, it isn’t anymore. Fact check: there is no such thing as “transitioning.” No person born male will ever be a mother, will ever be a wife, will ever be a woman. And the attempt to create the myth, the appearance, involves the mutilating of a perfectly healthy body.  Just the amount of chemicals introduced into the body greatly increases risks of cancer, for example.  It is devastating.  The cost involved is incredible as well.  And even when this grossly unnatural, contra-nature process is completed (and it never really is, medically), the result is a damaged, non-functioning myth, not a woman.  And we wonder why there is a 20 fold increase in suicides amongst those who go through this horrific, immoral, absurd process?  So, we are supposed to hate Josh Alcorn’s parents for not allowing their minor child to do this?  Why don’t we blame the “trans-gender mythology makers” out there on the web who promised Josh a false make-believe panacea instead?  Well, that would make moral sense, so, we can’t go there!

Dan Savage must be justly rebuked for his shameful actions and irresponsible tweet.  I, for one, am not bullied by this kind of activist.  I well know that if he were to be put in a position of actually having to engage these issues in full-on, moderated, fair debate, his position would collapse. I would be happy to be the one to demonstrate that as well.
