Well, Theology Matters

William Lane Craig, Andy Stanley, and Albert Mohler, Then, Surah 9, Islam, and the Changed Heart

A Mega sized DL today, two full hours, with the first 1:15 dedicated to reviewing and responding to the Reasonable Faith podcast of 3/27 and its defense of Andy Stanley (which sounded more to me like a backhanded attack on Dr. Mohler to be honest).  You see, apologetics is not theology, folks, and that is why you can treat the unbeliever as a neutral moral agent and let him judge God’s existence!  And why you don’t have to worry about things like the Flood, the Exodus, or even the Virgin Birth!  Yes indeed folks, we played the whole thing.  Then we shifted gears, massively so, and I spent the last 45 minutes reading relevant materials regarding Surah 9, jihad, Muslim/Christian relations, and basically asked the question, isn’t the real issue one of the heart?

A Mega Dividing Line on Lots of Topics!

Had not planned on going nearly two hours but time goes by so fast!  Started off reading from the Institutes of the Christian Religion by John Calvin.  Then we moved on to reading a portion from Brave New World.  You’ll have to listen to hear why!  Made some comments, and then shifted gears completely and played a video by Yahya Snow on the issue of Zaynab b. Jash and the Qur’an.  Then we finished up with a discussion of a very small portion of Leighton Flowers’ comments on common and prevenient grace, etc.  Lots of topics!

Radio Free Geneva: A Nearly Three Hour Examination of “Traditional” Anthropology

Just avoided going for a full three hours, but we reviewed Dr. Leighton Flowers’ podcast from September 26, 2016, which was ostensibly about those who never hear, but was much more about how Calvinism is a bad theology. In any case, it gave us the foundation for looking very carefully at Flowers’ views, as they are being presented to a wide audience of Southern Baptists. We likewise touched upon some of his attempted response to Romans 8:5-7 as well.

The Rebellion of Transgenderism, then, A Challenge Fulfilled

First half hour or so was on the ascension of transgenderism and the use of the sexual revolution by the left to attack religious freedom in the United States, illustrated in today’s court ruling against the florist in Washington state.  Then we transitioned into a discussion of a challenge sent to me from Dr. Leighton Flowers regarding man’s inabilities due to sin, and we spent a full hour working through the key texts that teach the truth on this matter.
