Did an hour and 15 minutes of phone calls (but, that was only 4 calls!) with my fellow pastor Jeff Durbin. Some good topics of conversation to be had, hope you find it encouraging! Thanks to Jeff for coming in! Here is the YouTube link: Live Video Stream The Dividing Line is on YouTube video.

JD Greear, Homosexuality, Michael Licona, Certainty and Assurance

Started off looking at JD Greear’s blog article, which reflected pretty much what he had said in a sermon back during the winter, regarding homosexuality.  Then looked at a tweet from Jonathan Merritt, replied to by Brian Zahnd, on the accusation of “idolatry of the family.”  Then we moved on to play a portion of a video from Mike Licona wherein he spoke of being “80% sure Christianity is true,” and discussed not only the issues of certainty and assurance, but more importantly epistemology and the difference that arises from our theology and apologetic methodology.

Christian, Where is Their Here? – The Dividing Line with Rich Pierce

Once again Rich Pierce sits in for James and continues with the question from the last program of “where is your here?” Colossians 3:11 is the baseline text as Rich examines the kinds of “novel” and “interesting” thoughts that many so called conservative evangelicals seem to be so fascinated with. Then he turns to how Critical Theory and Intersectionality are already deeply rooted in respected institutions and churches all around us.

Dr. James Strickland’s interview with the Jude 3 Project

Christian, Where is Your “Here?” – The Dividing Line with Rich Pierce

Rich Pierce sits in on the Dividing Line for James today and considers the teaching of Colossians 3:11 in light of the recent influx of Critical Theory and Intersectionality in the christian church.

Can CT/I be a valid analytical tool for christian faith and practice or is it diametrically opposed to the direct teaching that we find in Colossians 3? Rich unpacks the text to show how the christian is to view these things.

Marty Sampson’s Instagram Article, Faithfulness, and then 30 Minutes of Open Phones

Apostasy isn’t a fun topic, but a necessary one, so we talked about Marty Sampson’s leaving the faith, walked through his Instagram post, talked about Paul’s experience with Demas, etc. for about an hour.  Then we opened the phones for 30 minutes with calls on lots of topics including Roman Catholicism.
