Did our first live streamed DL in a while today, starting off, rather by necessity, with a discussion of tragedies and evils in light of the Las Vegas shooting. Then we discussed Nabeel Qureshi’s homecoming and related issues. Then we briefly mentioned a truly compromising “IFD,” and finished up with the Fritz Erbe story from the Wartburg Castle, along with a number of pictures from our Reformation Tour in Germany.
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.
Took the time to play portions of Steve Camp’s appearance on The Bible Thumping Wingnut and provided a rather full response to his arguments, or, in most cases, non-arguments regarding ministry to Muslims, apologetics, gospel presentation, etc. IF YOU ARE TIRED OF THIS TOPIC, SKIP THIS EPISODE. But there are some pretty important issues covered here.
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.
