Answered a few questions from listeners on the last show at the start (just realized I forgot to answer one that I will make a note of!) and then went straight to the phones with an amazingly wide variety of calls and topics…a little something for everyone! One call was on Hebrews 3:16 and why it differs between the KJV and the NASB, another was on Genesis 15 and the covenant (went long on that one), another on covenant children, and the last one was on conditionalism/annihilationism. Hope you are blessed and encouraged. At least I can guarantee you if you spend 100 minutes listening to this you will learn a whole lot more than if you spend the same time watching a Hallmark Christmas special!
Issues Relating to the Text of the Bible
Ran through some quick discussions of a few topics in the first half hour, and then took calls in the second. Covered a few Francis the Marxist stories, and then looked briefly at Ken Wilson’s anti-Calvinist polemic (dressed up as a work of history), The Foundation of Augustinian-Calvinism. Then pointed folks to a new resource for Qur’an studies, Fadel Soliman’s Bridges’ Translation of the Ten Qira’at of the Noble Quran. Went to the phones with calls on teaching teens apologetics, church history, reaching Mormons, etc.
I wish there was a way for me to easily make notation of all the topics when we do open phones, but alas, I have not mastered that skill. So we talked about Mormonism and textual criticism and inerrancy and even a call about the Christian view of medical intervention for someone who is truly (genetically) intersexed! Also had a long call about resources on church history. So, a little something for everyone on today’s program!
Started off with the D. Wade debacle and the influence of the world’s insanity on “transgenderism.” Then we started a movement to have Francis renamed “Francis the Marxist” (it has a ring do it, I think). Mentioned the ecumenical “Mass” being held in St. Pierre, Calvin’s old haunts, and then got to the real topic of the day. We played portions from a single very long (3 hour) discussion of textual issues (Part 1 found here, part 2 found here) discussion of textual critical issues by Dr. Peter Gurry, James Snapp Jr., and Dr. Jeffrey Riddle, from the Talking Christianity–Apologetics YT channel. This is a very important discussion as it truly exposes the circular nature of the TR Only position as it is being promoted today.
D. Wade is woke, so D. Wade cannot help his son navigate the absurdly wild messages of today’s woke culture. So watch the media fawn all over his “powerful message,” which is actually nothing more than a capitulation and surrender to the self-destruction of gender confusion. A true tragedy. Then, did you hear tax cuts are sinful? Yeah, Pope Francis the Marxist says to (I think he should just adopt that name since that is how he will be remembered by history). And yes, that sound you heard recently was Calvin spinning in his grave as the ecumenical caretakers of the building in which he preached allowed the Roman mass to be said therein. And finally, I would like to welcome Dr. Peter Gurry and James Snapp Jr. to my world. Their recent attempt to reason with Dr. Jeffrey Riddle had me sitting back going, “Yup, been pointing that out for years now.” We will spend a good bit of time reviewing. Join us!
