Stability, Order, Foundations, Adiaphora, and a Bible-Based Trip Down Memory Lane

Had more streaming problems today (yes, we are considering outside interference, but for now, there really isn’t much we can do about it) so we recorded the program again.  Spent most of the time looking at Colossians 2:5-7 and what it means to be stable, grounded, disciplined, and what this means in our present context.  Then we took a little walk down memory lane using Bibles from my library, Bibles going all the way back to my first Bible, given to me on my seventh birthday.  I don’t know when we will have another program, not because of the net issues, but because I leave next Tuesday for Germany.  It is doubtful I will have time to do much over there, but you never know!

Worship in Spirit and Truth, Totalitarianism, Robert Spencer Retreads

Started off the DL today with a review of some important thoughts from John 4, then looked a bit at the continued advance of totalitarianism.  But spent most of our time looking at today’s Jihad Watch article re-treading the Yasir Qadhi story.  Robert Spencer shows us once again the difference between approaching Islam from a worldly perspective or from the biblical perspective.

The Nashville Statement (First Hour), Racialism Dividing the Church (2nd Hour)

Unfortunately we have developed connection problems yet once again with our ISP, so we had to cut things a bit short when everything just ground to a halt.  First hour was a rather full discussion of the Nashville Statement and some of those who have attempted to respond to it. Then we switched over to the always enjoyable topic of Critical Race Theory, “White Supremacy,” and the like, looking at articles by Jemar Tisby and others that are simply way over the line when it comes to anything close to a New Testament position on the nature of Christian fellowship, the church, etc.  Unfortunately, that’s when the connection decided to give up the ghost, which slammed the recording program, etc.  We had to stop, restart, and so I decided to shut it down earlier than I had intended.  Technology!  Well, I’m sure it will come up again next week.  In any case, a bit “heavy” on the topics, but necessary, and hopefully useful to all.

Report on Trip to Birmingham, South Africa, and London, Along with More

Covered my two weeks overseas with lots of side-trips and commentary on related issues, and toward the end focused upon some issues that came up in my debate with Zakir Hussein on the crucifixion, especially John 17:5 and Psalm 22:16.  Also showed off a new Bible, a Polish translation of The Roman Catholic Controversy, my Bates hat from London, and the upgrading of the DL to full warp power!  Lots of stuff on a 90+ minute episode today.

Meme Day on the Dividing Line

Showed a bunch of memes today and interacted with them, mainly on Islamic issues.  Then read two brief articles from Bassam Zawadi, also from Facebook, and interacted with them.  Wide variety of topics, actually, hopefully helpful to more than just those who engage in ministry to Muslims.  Enjoy!

I also mentioned toward the end of the program the sermon I preached yesterday morning at PRBC for the younger generation.  I include it immediately below.
