Uber-Mega Dividing Line: Sola Scriptura, and Islamic Denials of the Deity of Christ

Went 135 minutes today (hence the “uber-mega” designation) covering two primary topics: sola scriptura defined and defended against a recent attack upon it by Karlo Broussard of Catholic Answers (first 90 minutes), and then a “live” review of a new video against the deity of Christ from a Muslim perspective (link).  A lot of foundational, basic teaching today that we think is very, very important for all believers!

Responding to Frank Turek’s Defense of Andy Stanley

Went almost a full two hours today reading through and responding to Frank Turek’s 9/8 article in defense of Andy Stanley’s comments about the Bible and the resurrection.  Much important information on the foundational and fundamental differences between the evidentialist/minimalist approach and a full-orbed biblical apologetic.

Ehrman and Islamic Apologetics and More on Andy Stanley and Russell Moore

Started off with a brief discussion of the constant problem with Islamic apologetics—the necessary double standard it has to employ to defend the Qur’an on one hand, and attack the Bible on the other.  Then we moved back to the Russell Moore/Andy Stanley discussion, once again noting fundamental issues of ecclesiology and Scriptural authority lying at the root of the topic.

WLC & Molinism then More from Russell Moore’s interview with Andy Stanley

James started off today commenting on the sudden death of a young woman, a mother of seven, from Apologia church. He asks for prayer for not only Apologia but specifically for the family. Then he plays a clip from a recent Reasonable Faith podcast regarding Molinism. Finally the fuller portion of Russell Moore’s interview with Andy Stanley where Andy reads a letter from a lady who now considers herself to be “a part of” Stanley’s church. The lady is an atheist.
