Issues Relating to Reformed Baptists

The Pope and the Lord’s Prayer, Slander & Keyboard, SJC, Zachariades & God’s Justice

Started off looking at Pope Francis and “lead us not into temptation.” Then had to look at Slander and Keyboard (the group formerly known as Pulpit & Pen, sort of like the artist formerly known as Prince…or Purple something, I could never figure that part out) as well as some wild eyed “bigotry in the name of Christianity is fine with me” tweets from Steve Camp, and finally spent a few minutes considering Theodore Zachariades’ challenge to debate whether God’s justice requires creaturely freedom (God has sovereignly decreed it to be so, I would say).  Hate to have to spend time with S&K, SJC, etc., but bigotry in the name of the faith can never be overlooked.

Almost Mega Length DL with Five Major Topics

Started off with the MSM’s hyping of the First Apocalypse of James, a well known gnostic work from, at the earliest, the late second century, most probably the third.  Had a “Story Time with Uncle Jimmy” where I read the entirety of the work so you can respond to co-workers or others who raise the topic.  Then we discussed Bill Mounce’s comments on “whoever” at John 3:16. Followed that with a quick discussion of Francois Veron and the use of skepticism by Rome in the Counter-Reformation. Then I read a Muslim article about today’s Supreme Court case about religious freedom and what the Qur’an honestly teaches about homosexuality (and the foolishness of liberal Muslim groups who have opposed religious liberty).  Finally we spent some time reading and responding to Dr. Sonny Hernandez’s response to me on Arminianism and the Gospel, and frankly, I still haven’t a clue exactly where he is coming from.  But, we gave it the old college try!  Nearly 110 minutes for the program today.

Beyond Mega Length Edition of the DL: Textual Critical Topics, Islamic Topics, Response to Theodore Zachariades

Went two hours and eleven minutes today (sorry!), but had a lot to cover. Too many topics to list, but basically a lot on the new Tyndale House Greek New Testament, textual critical topics, Muslim apologetics issues, the Qur’an, and then responses to Dr. Theodore Zachariades on the topic of the decree of God and the will of man, i.e., the topic of compatibilism.  Only program this week as I am headed for St. Charles for my annual pilgrimage!

Thanksgiving as a Christian Trait, Free Will, the Decree of God, and Theodore Zachariades

As it is two days before Thanksgiving we started off with about 20 minutes of thought, based mainly on Ephesians 5, on that vital topic, and then moved on to a discussion of Chapter 9 of the London Baptist Confession of Faith, “On Free Will,” in light of the recent debate and an article from Dr. Zachariades.  We hope everyone has a blessed time with their families this week, if possible, and that you will have time to truly consider the goodness of God toward you and yours.

Speaking the Truth in Love, Destroying Others, then Back to the Free Will Debate

Started off with biblical discussions regarding how Christians are to interact with others, leading to some thoughts about those who wish to “destroy” others in the name of Christ.  Then turned back to the Free Will debate that was the subject of the previous program, listening and responding along the way.  105 minutes today!  More than a jumbo, less than a mega!
