Issues Relating to the Text of the Bible

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.

Unanticipated Discussion of CBGM and P45, Then Beginning of a Review of Ijaz Ahmad’s Video on OT/NT “Corruption”

I started off thinking I’d mainly respond to Ijaz Ahmad’s video today and then open the phones, but alas, I mentioned a little bit about the Coherence Based Genealogical Method in regards to some volumes of the TuT series (Text und Textwert) that had just arrived today and people started asking questions and I ended up saying a LOT more than I had planned about the topic!  I finally did get to Ijaz’s presentation, but only got 4 and a half minutes in before had to wrap up.  A bit technical today, but that’s why some of you listen to the program, right?

Almost Mega Length DL with Five Major Topics

Started off with the MSM’s hyping of the First Apocalypse of James, a well known gnostic work from, at the earliest, the late second century, most probably the third.  Had a “Story Time with Uncle Jimmy” where I read the entirety of the work so you can respond to co-workers or others who raise the topic.  Then we discussed Bill Mounce’s comments on “whoever” at John 3:16. Followed that with a quick discussion of Francois Veron and the use of skepticism by Rome in the Counter-Reformation. Then I read a Muslim article about today’s Supreme Court case about religious freedom and what the Qur’an honestly teaches about homosexuality (and the foolishness of liberal Muslim groups who have opposed religious liberty).  Finally we spent some time reading and responding to Dr. Sonny Hernandez’s response to me on Arminianism and the Gospel, and frankly, I still haven’t a clue exactly where he is coming from.  But, we gave it the old college try!  Nearly 110 minutes for the program today.

Beyond Mega Length Edition of the DL: Textual Critical Topics, Islamic Topics, Response to Theodore Zachariades

Went two hours and eleven minutes today (sorry!), but had a lot to cover. Too many topics to list, but basically a lot on the new Tyndale House Greek New Testament, textual critical topics, Muslim apologetics issues, the Qur’an, and then responses to Dr. Theodore Zachariades on the topic of the decree of God and the will of man, i.e., the topic of compatibilism.  Only program this week as I am headed for St. Charles for my annual pilgrimage!

Ephesians 4:29-32 Applied to Christian Communication, A Hack-Job Video, and Francis’ Unorthodox Views

Started off with some geeky stuff, a few new books, etc., then moved to Ephesians 4 and how we are to behave as believers, especially in the realm of communication.  Moved seamlessly into a hack-job video that P&P is promoting, a personal attack upon me.  Played the whole thing showing how whoever produced it (Hall knows and isn’t saying) purposefully avoided context, proper categories, etc., and sought only to mislead the viewer.  It is dishonest at its core.  After that had a few brief comments on Mormonism, and then finished up with an article about Pope Francis’ unorthodox views.  A 90 minute edition today!
