Well, Theology Matters

Micro-Aggression Worship Songs, Tweets from the MLK50 Conference, Ehrman on the Gospel Writers, Open Phones

Covered a number of odd things coming out of the MLK50 Conference, including a “worship song” that included the concept of “micro-aggressions” (just finding a way to put that tongue stopper in a line of music deserves credit!) and a tweet insisting that “White Evangelicalism” (whatever that is) “owes” the “black community” monetary investment.  Then we got back to the Ehrman/Licona debate, looking at one of Ehrman’s arguments promoting historical skepticism.  Then went to calls on all sorts of topics including the LBCF and CBGM (love those acronyms).  Enjoy!

Christian Renewal Focused on True Knowledge of Christ vs. Neo-Marxism (First Hour) then…Coherence Based Genealogical Method Introduction!

Not sure a program could have two more different topics, but I managed to pull it off today!  Spent the first 55 minutes starting off with a study of Colossians 3:9-11.  I then focused upon what this text means as to the proper, biblical basis of Christian unity in the body of Christ.  I then made application to the growing promotion of neo-Marxism in the West and, sadly, in the evangelical church as well.  Tough topics to cover.  Then we completely switched gears and I began a very, very basic introduction to CGBM: Coherence-Based Genealogical Methodology in New Testament textual criticism.  Yes, it’s THAT geeky.  But, we have folks who like in-depth stuff like that, and I am neck-deep in it in my own studies, so that’s what we did!  Enjoy!

Pelagians on Twitter, Man-Centered God at Bethel, Presuppositions in Ehrman, Open Phones

Started off looking at a Pelagian on Twitter by the name of “C G.”  Then played an entire ten minute long clip from a guy on the “Dead Raising Team” from Bethel Church in Redding about how we should believe in the goodness of people (please read Romans 3:10-18 over three times while pondering that concept).  Before going to the phones for the last part of the program we looked at how presuppositions impact arguments, such as those made by Bart Ehrman about the birth narratives in Matthew and Luke.

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.

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.
