Is the Trinity Essential? And Much More

Started off with a new Reasonable Faith video featuring William Lane Craig and the question “Is the Trinity Essential?” Half an hour on that one. Then we looked at Bart Ehrman’s claims about Jesus, heaven and hell, another half hour. Then we picked up a few topics, including Pete Buttigieg, a guy named Dave Barnhart, rapper Flame’s conversion to Lutheranism, and Trent Horne’s question about the origin of sin in Calvinist thought. 90 minutes!

All the Dishes in the Kitchen Sink

The title for today’s program came from Rich. Blame him. Started off talking about the quotation I had posted on Facebook and all the guesses—none of which were right. The quotation was from Dr. Yasir Qadhi, so I fleshed that out as far as worldviews, evangelism, apologetics, etc. Then we discussed the wishful effort to “orthodoxicize” Martin Luther King’s views on the resurrection of Christ, as well as some comments made by a Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (SEBTS) professor about James Cone. Introduced a new phrase, “virtue twerking,” then spent the longest period of time analysing a 3:18 long video from Reasonable Faith (William Lane Craig) on “What About Those Who Never Hear?” (found here). Finally finished up with a few more minutes of response to Jay Dyer on the topic of sola scriptura. 90 minutes today!

Jonathan Merritt Uses Slavery as a Cover for Slander, then Bart Ehrman’s Ideal God

Responded to the following slander from Jonathan Merritt, provided the context, etc., and discussed a great deal (nearly an hour) on slavery, historical contexts, Biblical interpretation, etc., and the fact that, basically, you just aren’t allowed to let the Bible speak for itself any longer. Then looked at Bart Ehrman’s 2017 Christmas thoughts with a focus upon the “God of Christmas” he presented.

KJB Fundy Numerology, Flowers’ Unwanted Child, RNS Opinion Piece on Cone

Had to get the silly stuff out of the way first, so we looked at Andrew Sluder’s “KJB Numerology” where he uses verse numbers and their position in the Bible to prove its inspiration. Then we got serious and read through a Soteriology 101 article and dealt with its man-centeredness. Finished off with an RNS opinion piece that alleged that James Cone’s heresy really isn’t heresy, it is all about white power. Also had some further information about the Rome/Israel cruise and associated excursions.

Thoughts on Thanksgiving, a Bit More Cone, Matt Hall and CRT

Well Thanksgiving is coming up so we spent some time talking about thanks, contentment, etc., from a biblical perspective. Then we moved back to reading a bit from James Cone, made application to Talbert Swan, and then moved from there to an article recently posted from Dr. Matt Hall at SBTS regarding “racial reconciliation.” We asked some honest questions of Dr. Hall that I think really need answers. Let’s hope for them soon!
