Vines/McDowell Dialogue, Encouraging Podcast, Calls on Today’s Jumbo Edition of the Dividing Line

Started off with a few miscellaneous items, including a brief review of the Matthew Vines/Sean McDowell dialogue from a few weeks ago, a little reading on Basilides the early church gnostic heretic and his views, and then I played some portions from the Ex Nihilo podcast that the Hardings posted as an encouragement to me (which was much appreciated).  Then we went to the phones for a wide variety of calls on numerous topics including one call from a former Mormon about the Garden of Gethsemane, one on “proportional atonement,” and one on Islam and the New Testament.  At the beginning and end of the program I mentioned my upcoming trip via London (or Scotland) to South Africa and Zambia, and our need to raise funds to cover the costs. You can help us by donating to the travel fund here.

Open Phones on the Dividing Line!

Did a little church history (the Renaissance) and then went to the phones, taking calls on Lutheran baptismal regeneration, Jesus’ words about the day of judgment, grieving and evangelism, hyperdispensationalism, Titus 1:6, the longer ending of Mark, regeneration in the OT, Isaiah’s judgment oracle, and early christian writers.  Whew!  1:45 makes it an almost mega jumbo edition, I guess!

Modalism Destroys the Gospel, Church History Continued, Response to Jordan Hall’s Unhinged Diatribe

I drove back from Las Vegas this morning and rushed into the office to do a DL.  Started with a topic relevant to Shawn McCraney’s comments on modalism last week as this impacts the gospel.  Looked at Hebrews 9 as an illustration.  Then went back to Reformation Church history, looking at the Avignon Papacy and then the invention of printing as vital background topics.  Finally addressed Jordan Hall’s unhinged diatribe (found here) and its many slanders and errors, looking primarily at his confusing the categories necessary to build a meaningful case for cessationism and then at his assertion that my exegesis of 2 John 7-11 was that of a “three year old.”  I challenge Jordan Hall to produce his own exegesis of the text, as I will, and we can then compare them.

Current Events Today on A Brief Skype DL

On today’s program James gave a brief review of his dialogue with Shawn McCraney and then focused on current events. While discussing the recent school shooting he pointed out the corruption of society and the need to recognize evil in our midst. Then he read from an article about a 17 year old girl being taken from her parents because they refused to consent to her “transitioning.”

What Justin Martyr Actually Said, Transmission of the Text, Open Phones

Discussed Justin Martyr’s words in reference to Malachi 1:11 as found in his Dialogue with Trypho (in reference to a call from Tuesday), and then went over a textual critical issue relating to partial manuscripts.  Then we opened the phones and, as normal, covered a ton of topics, with a lot on the Trinity and the relationship of Father, Son and Spirit.
