Issues Relating to the Text of the Bible

Denying vs. Confessing, Canon Discussion at G3, the Lollards

Sorry, folks, despite my best efforts I got what’s going around (not the flu, thankfully, but a bad respiratory infection), so I will be talking slowly today—an easy show for you to use your 2x speed on when listening!  Looked at 1 John 2:18-23 exegetically (and textually), then talked a bit about the session at G3 with Michael Kruger on canon issues, and finished up returning to church history and talking about the Lollards in England.  Hope you find it helpful!

Ijaz Ahmad and Corruption of Scripture, A False Dilemma for Christians, Thoughts on the Condemnation of Michael Brown

Spent a good deal of time playing the final portions of Ijaz Ahmad’s video on “the corruption of Scripture,” working through a lot of pretty in-dept stuff regarding the Greek Septuagint, etc.  Then spent a bit of time looking at a supposed dilemma for Christians from Paul Williams, and finished off with about 50 minutes of thoughts on the brouhaha that has developed through the misrepresentation and abuse of the program on 1/2 with Michael Brown.  Nearly two hours in length.

2 John 11 Abused by Imbalanced Calvinists, the Death of LDS President Monson, Further Response to Ijaz Ahmad

Started off looking carefully at the text of 2 John 7-11 once again, this time as it has been abused by ostensibly Reformed folks.  Then we looked at some of the shenanigans of the “only Calvinists are saved” brigade on line.  Moved eventually to the death of LDS President Monson and the continued need to pray for God to pour out repentance upon the LDS people.  Finally returned to Ijaz Ahmad’s video on Scriptural “corruption” for the last 25 minutes or so.

Matthew 28:19 with Vocab Malone in Response to Ron Shields

A two-plus hour long episode that will mainly be of interest to those who study textual criticism and who have an interest in the Black Hebrew Israelite movement—not the normal topics you see put together but that’s what we addressed today, going into clips from Ron Shields, aka “Divine Prospect,” and his claims regarding Matthew 28:19.

Remembering RC, Then, Refuting More Textual Traditionalism

Started off playing a half hour interview from 2008 with RC Sproul remembering and celebrating a wonderful gift to Christ’s church.  Then we completely shifted gears and got into the issues raised by A James White Christmas Carol, an animation movie about Luke 23:34 that is desperately dishonest at its base (regarding the false accusation of my attacking David Wood, for example) and thoroughly indefensible in its presuppositions.  Be warned!  This is a jumbo-mega, almost 2.5 hours in length!  Sorry about that!  But lots of textual and historical discussion included.
