Offering Incense to Caesar: Are You Ready?

Covered a bunch of topics today on the program—a few announcements about the upcoming debates in Salt Lake City and in Australia started us off. Then we looked at some comments from Bassam Zawadi regarding the view of some Christian apologists of the Bible and the resurrection. Also looked through Romans 8:31-34 in response to Dr. David Allen’s assertion that there are no texts in Scripture that connect atonement and election. But most of my time was focused upon the controversy that came up when Drew Brees recorded a completely innocuous little video about bringing your Bible to school. Well, it was posted by Focus on the Family, and since Focus hasn’t been willing to bow the knee to the LGBTQ deity, well, Drew must pay. Talked about persecution in the early church, different types of apostasy, and how each Christian today must decide when Caesar is demanding we bow the knee in areas where we simply cannot today.

JD Greear, Homosexuality, Michael Licona, Certainty and Assurance

Started off looking at JD Greear’s blog article, which reflected pretty much what he had said in a sermon back during the winter, regarding homosexuality.  Then looked at a tweet from Jonathan Merritt, replied to by Brian Zahnd, on the accusation of “idolatry of the family.”  Then we moved on to play a portion of a video from Mike Licona wherein he spoke of being “80% sure Christianity is true,” and discussed not only the issues of certainty and assurance, but more importantly epistemology and the difference that arises from our theology and apologetic methodology.

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.

Joshua Harris’ Rainbow Adventure, Religious Freedom, Critical Theory, and the Founders Trailer

Spent some time looking at Joshua Harris’ swing into the LGBTQ world, then looked at issues of religious freedom, critical theory, and that whole area of rapid development.  Then I got into the Founders Trailer for “By What Standard,” developments since the program from Colorado, my complete face-plant error in not knowing any of the relevant background (or players), what I’ve learned since then, etc.  I spent a lot of time calling for us all to act in grace toward fellow believers, to pray for one another, and to cease the cannibalism that is marking the whole controversy. Affirmed my love for, and prayer for, a wide variety of folks, not all of whom would want to be mentioned in the same breath I’m afraid.  But, I put it in the Lord’s hands!

“By What Standard” Trailer, the 11th Commandment, and the CT Outrage Machine

Weighed in today on the controversy that managed to explode without my participation whatsoever on Tuesday related to the By What Standard trailer from Founders Ministries.  Addressed the trailer, the topics, the 11th commandment, and the critical theory movement that has made such massive inroads into the thinking not only of our society but the church as well.
