Today’s Dividing Line Errored Out

It is killing me to announce this because we put so much work into making this happen. As many of you already know, the feed for today’s show froze up within the first two minutes. However, the program that we use, (Wirecast), was telling me that the recording was proceeding just fine. So I turned to Twitter and Facebook to let folks know that and that I would upload it later. Well, as you might have guessed by now it wasn’t recording. In fact, the recording froze at the same time that the feed did even though the program was still seemingly responding to me. We had a studio audience in the room and it now appears that they got a private audience with James as he reviewed the debate rather than one that could be shared with our audience at large. For that I apologize. This is one more example of why I usually stay back at our offices because I can maintain control over these kinds of things much more easily. I was so blessed by so many who came and greeted me this week and will not forget this wonderful experience. However, I need to be mindful of how important producing these programs are to those same people and be where I know I can have more control over the recording.

Again, please accept my apologies for this.


Pre-Debate/Conference Dividing Line

Spent most of the program talking about the upcoming debate with Trent Horn, Staff Apologist for Catholic Answers, and how I expect the argumentation to go, etc.  Then we went over the upcoming events on the trip, including the dialogue with Dr. Yasir Qadhi in the Memphis area, the Deep South Founders Conference, and my stop in Dallas for the premiere of Unpopular.

A Potpourri of Topics on Today’s Dividing Line

Covered a wide range of topics today, starting with an odd statement by Dr. David Allen about Mother Theresa on Twitter.  Then we looked at the Episcopalians in Glasgow having a Muslim woman chant a portion of the Qur’an that denies central Christian doctrine as part of their services.  We then looked at how “faith leaders” blessed a Planned Parenthood abortuary.  Next we noted William Lane Craig teaching that man is a “co-actualizer” of the world with God, and then finished up with Rick Patrick’s SBCToday article calling for a political, rather than a theological, response to the rise of Calvinism in the SBC.  Quite a variety today!

John 6 For Roman Catholics

Today we did a special Dividing Line of nearly two hours in length focusing upon walking through the sixth chapter of John.  Roman Catholicism teaches that Jesus taught transubstantiation in this chapter, but a fair reading of the text reveals otherwise.  This is a program we hope will be shared with many Roman Catholics.

Shameless Papist Pretensions Followed by Foundational Issues with Mike Licona

A tale of two programs today: I was going to briefly address a Roman Catholic on Twitter and that “briefly” became fifty minutes.  But then I switched over to a review of an interview with Dr. Mike Licona for a total of about 1:40 for the program today.
