Epiphanius and the Bodily Assumption, Then Facts and Observations on the Continued Misrepresentations of the Yasir Qadhi Dialogue

Took the first half hour to deal with an issue from the Marian Dogmas debate in London, specifically, the citation of Ephiphanius related to the Bodily Assumption.  Then in the second half hour I went through a number of corrections of the narrative being promoted by a number of folks relating to the dialogue with Dr. Yasir Qadhi, correcting, reproving, and rebuking many of the falsehoods that are being promoted by self-professed Christians.  We plan on doing our next DL on Thursday, as I will be joining, Lord willing, Dr. Michael Brown on The Line of Fire on Wednesday to discuss this entire affair and set the record straight.

Why Celebrate the Reformation? Reason 187: Rome’s Marian Dogmas

Aside from a few technical hiccups and a bit of wandering about, spent pretty much the entire hour on Rome’s Marian teachings, looking in particular at where they came from.  I read from such sources as the Odes of Solomon, the Ascension of Isaiah, and especially from The Protevangelium of James.  Be warned!  Some of this material is a bit difficult to listen to.  You almost never hear Roman Catholic apologists reading these sources, and there’s a reason for it!

This will be my last DL until probably June 6th!  Please pray for this extended overseas trip that begins Saturday, and especially for the debate next Monday evening in London.

A Program for the INC: John 1:1, 17:3, and Other Biblical Issues Post-Debate

Did a follow up on the INC debate and its aftermath today, responding to the posting of a Facebook article likening me to Simon Magus in my seeking to obtain the book, Fundamental Beliefs of the Iglesia Ni Christo (Erano G. Manalo).  Went in-depth into John 1:1, 17:3 (didn’t even go on to 17:5!), and discussed the Holy Spirit as well.  Toward the end we covered a few other topics, such as a tweet from a hyper-Traditionalist accusing me of “having no Gospel.”  We will do another program tomorrow afternoon, looking at a response offered by the Ecclesiastical Text advocates to some comments I made last week.

A Mega Dividing Line with 50 Minutes of Open Phones

Too many topics to even start to list, but mainly in the opening I discussed the upcoming debates in South Dakota and London, then discussed a meme Ijaz Ahmad posted over the weekend, and then read all of William Lane Craig’s answer to a very insightful question sent to him.  Then we took phone calls on…every topic imaginable!  Only DL this week, so we had to make it interesting!
