Interview with Michael Brown on His New Book, Second Hour: James Cone’s Theology Reviewed

Two hour long program today that is really two very different programs. First hour Michael Brown joins me via Skype to talk about his new book, Playing with Holy Fire.  I had been on Michael’s program last week on the same topic.  Then, after an hour, we moved on to the discussion prompted by the death this past weekend of Dr. James H. Cone, one of the authors of Black Liberation Theology.

John 3:16 Again, Racialism, CBGM, Peterson/Shapiro Dialogue

Covered a TON of important material today.  Started off responding to an Arminian attempt to spin the discussion of John 3:16 and the phrase πᾶς ὁ πιστεύων (every one believing).  Then we moved on to some developments on the racialism front.  From there we switched gears and addressed the claim that CGBM will cause all of the past three hundred years of textual critical work to be thrown in the trash bin.  And then finally we played the entirety of the Jordan Peterson/Ben Shapiro dialogue on Christianity and Judaism, interacting with it and hopefully providing some important balance.  A ton of stuff for everyone today!

Pope Francis’ Inclusivism and the Little Boy Reviewed, Open Phones, Many Topics

Started off looking carefully, and hopefully fairly, at the video of Pope Francis speaking to a young boy whose atheist father had died.  We examined the reality that Francis is an inclusivist, a person who clearly does not believe that explicit confession of faith in Jesus Christ is necessary for salvation.  We likewise considered other issues relating to Roman Catholicism, the papacy, and the topic of the lost, in relationship to the video.  Then we went to callers and covered a wide variety of topics, including one call on interacting with those who oppose our views on “critical race theory” and related topics to the recent MLK controversy.  We also took a call on whether Exodus 21 is relevant to the topic of abortion.  I have posted a short article I wrote on that topic here.

Nearly Two Hours on Critical Race Theory, White Privilege, T4G, and More

Had to take the entire program today to cover developments since the MLK50 Conference and last weekend’s T4G Conference.  Nearly two hours on the entire Critical Race Theory/White Privilege/”Woke” Church movement.  Hope to take calls and get back to Ehrman, etc., on Thursday.

Full Response to Thabiti Anyabwile on Colossians and Related Topics, Open Phones

Spent over an hour working through the latest response from Thabiti Anyabwile focusing especially on the exegetical and theological issues, but not only them.  Watched as a Twitter storm took place during the program—a storm I will not be investing the time in going back to read.  Then we turned to the phones and had a few calls on similar issues, along with calls on other topics as well.  Two full hours!
