Humanzees, Jordan Peterson, Parallel Gospels, and Open Phones

Spent most of the start of the show looking at a video from Jordan Peterson and interacting with the concepts of suffering and human purpose in his lectures.  Dr. Peterson has been great in exposing the fundamental flaws and simple irrationality of many of the left’s pet projects today, and we can be very thankful for that, but we cannot use that as an excuse to not point out that the best a Jungian evolutionary worldview can produce (consistently) is a form of Pelagianism, a “pull yourself up by your bootstraps” moralism that lacks the key ingredients provided by full gospel proclamation.  We then moved on a brief discussion about Ehrman and historical standards, and then took a number of calls on a variety of topics.

The New GTY Assault Bible, NA29 Due in 2021, Billy Graham, then Back to Ehrman/Licona

Started off talking about the new “Preacher’s Bible” from Grace To You which I have now dubbed “The Assault Bible.”  Light hearted discussion, I assure you.  Then we talked about the announcement that the next editions of the NA and UBS Greek texts are due out in 2021/2022, and what that means.  Then we discussed the move on the part of many to banish Billy Graham to hell (seriously).  Finally, we got back to the Bart Ehrman/Mike Licona debate, focusing upon some of the key issues relating to Ehrman’s style of argumentation.

A Little Bill Johnson, a Bunch of Islamic Material, and an Intro to the Ehrman/Licona Debate

Took a little time to comment on my listening to some material on Bill Johnson (Bethel Church, Redding, CA) this morning at the start of the program, and then moved into a lengthy Islamic discussion, dealing with common misunderstandings on the topic of the atonement amongst Muslims, playing clips from the Wood/Ally debate, and a video from a Muslim in Australia. Then looked at Ijaz Ahmed’s comments on Surah 10:94 as well.  Finally moved into an introduction, at the end of the program, to the series we will do on the Ehrman/Licona debate that took place recently.  Almost two full hours today!

Series to Begin Next Week, the Ebionites, and Open Phones on a 95 Minute Dividing Line

Covered about half an hour of “topics” from the Ebionites to current discussions of “insanity,” and then we went to open phones with lots of questions on a wide variety of topics including the Trinity, Oneness, and two calls on textual variants (Romans 5:1, John 10:29).

Vines/McDowell Dialogue, Encouraging Podcast, Calls on Today’s Jumbo Edition of the Dividing Line

Started off with a few miscellaneous items, including a brief review of the Matthew Vines/Sean McDowell dialogue from a few weeks ago, a little reading on Basilides the early church gnostic heretic and his views, and then I played some portions from the Ex Nihilo podcast that the Hardings posted as an encouragement to me (which was much appreciated).  Then we went to the phones for a wide variety of calls on numerous topics including one call from a former Mormon about the Garden of Gethsemane, one on “proportional atonement,” and one on Islam and the New Testament.  At the beginning and end of the program I mentioned my upcoming trip via London (or Scotland) to South Africa and Zambia, and our need to raise funds to cover the costs.
