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!

Resources on Eschatology Then Matt Walsh, Rome, and Mary as Mediatrix

First portion of the program was on eschatology (gasp!) and some resources that you might find useful on the topic.  Then we moved over to Roman Catholicism in reference to Matt Walsh, the move to have Mary named Co-Redemptrix in a dogmatic fashion, and the narrowing of the cultural landscape that will force believers and Roman Catholics closer and closer together. Hope it is helpful and challenging!

Reformation Tour, Allen Debate Invitation, Rome and Mary, and More

Covered a pretty wide range today, starting with Mike O’Fallon talking about the upcoming Reformation Tour in Europe in September.  Then we moved on to my debate invitation for David Allen.  Then we played a video from Catholic Answers on why Mary is called “woman” by Jesus, demonstrating what happens when you deny sola scriptura.  Then we looked at a Muslim video on the crucifixion of Jesus, and finished off with a KJVO conspiracy theory that I am preparing the world for the mark of the Beast (which I might add, according to two papyri copies of Revelation, is 616, not 666).
