Issues Relating to Reformed Baptists

Radio Free Geneva! Robert Jeffress, Roman Catholicism, the Reformation, and then Kevin Thompson on John 6 (Mega Edition)

Started off with the First Baptist Dallas interview of Sean Hannity and discussed a lot about Roman Catholicism and how we should mourn over the fact that Rome’s gospel does not save.  Then I very, very briefly discussed the John Piper thing on final justification.  Then we moved to a video from Pastor Kevin Thompson on John 6:37, playing his comments in their entirety and demonstrating that yet once again there is simply no way to read this text without it plainly and compellingly teaching God’s utter freedom in the matter of salvation.  A full two hours today, no streaming errors or anything.  We will be doing another program tomorrow, same time!

Yusuf Ismail and Deuteronomy, and Further Response to Abu Zakariya

Started off the program today with a little bit on the ongoing attacks upon A&O by the odd coalition of Christians and political types, and then reviewed some comments by Yusuf Ismail in a recent ABN debate with Usama Dakdok, specifically looking at portions of Deuteronomy—tough, difficult portions.  No ducking, no saying “Oh, that’s the Old Testament, we don’t have to worry about that.”  Then I moved back to a careful and hopefully useful interaction with Abu Zakariya’s work on Jesus.  A 90 minute program today!

INC Debate Review, P&P Controversy

Spent an hour reviewing the debate with Joe Ventilacion of Iglesia Ni Christo, responding to various elements of the debate itself and looking at what has happened in the aftermath.  Then for the last 40 minutes or so we covered the discussion taking place on line regarding Pulpit and Pen, etc., going back to last summer and the controversy that emerged then.

A Mega Dividing Line on Lots of Topics!

Had not planned on going nearly two hours but time goes by so fast!  Started off reading from the Institutes of the Christian Religion by John Calvin.  Then we moved on to reading a portion from Brave New World.  You’ll have to listen to hear why!  Made some comments, and then shifted gears completely and played a video by Yahya Snow on the issue of Zaynab b. Jash and the Qur’an.  Then we finished up with a discussion of a very small portion of Leighton Flowers’ comments on common and prevenient grace, etc.  Lots of topics!

Radio Free Geneva: A Nearly Three Hour Examination of “Traditional” Anthropology

Just avoided going for a full three hours, but we reviewed Dr. Leighton Flowers’ podcast from September 26, 2016, which was ostensibly about those who never hear, but was much more about how Calvinism is a bad theology. In any case, it gave us the foundation for looking very carefully at Flowers’ views, as they are being presented to a wide audience of Southern Baptists. We likewise touched upon some of his attempted response to Romans 8:5-7 as well.
