Yesterday on the DL: A Sikh/Atheist on Unbelievable, Apologetics Calls
11/25/2009 - James White
I played a portion of a debate from Justin Brierley's Unbelievable program in the UK where the Sikh representative turned out to be part of Dennis McKinsey's Biblical Errancy group. Then we took calls, including two on the subject of Jehovah's Witnesses. Made some hopefully helpful comments on the need to be grounded and balanced in studying the cults. Here's the program.
Don't forget that there will not be a live DL on Thursday, as Rich and I will be spending the day with our families. May God richly bless you all with a wonderful day of remembrance, thanks, and worship.
Yesterday on the Dividing Line
11/20/2009 - James White
Sorry to be late getting this up. Rich's laptop, which he uses to do a lot of this stuff, died this morning (motherboard), so we are a little delayed. Yesterday we discussed the great non-event of a former pro-golfer promoting a long-refuted book attacking the deity of Christ, then we took a number of calls on a wide variety of issues. I started to get into an interesting topic toward the end, but then decided to take one last call, which turned out to be...well, you'll see. Here's the program.
Today on the Dividing Line: Callers on Reformed Theology
11/17/2009 - James White
Talked a bit about upcoming debate possibilities, including my getting in contact with Dr. Michael Brown, and the possibility of having him on the DL, and my being on his program as well. Played a caller objecting to Reformed theology from Dr. Brown's radio program, then took calls. Here's the program.
Today on the Dividing Line: We Finished Norman Geisler's "Sermon" on Calvinism!
11/12/2009 - James WhiteI know it only took me five months, but we finally finished up Norman Geisler's "Why I'm Not a Five Point Calvinist" sermon, and took a couple of calls as well. I took a few minutes to report on the last few days of my trip to New York as well. Here's the program
Our pre-feed music came from none other than Mylo Hatzenbuhler. Take my word for it, you just gotta have Mylo's Christmas CD in your Christmas music collection! How anyone can get along without such classics as "Heifer Bells" or "Winter in Nordakota," I can't imagine. And if you haven't hummed along to "Checkout Gals," you haven't lived! So hustle on over to Mylo's website and get your copy of A Very Mylo Christmas before the big rush hits! And while you are there, check out Mylo's other classic albums, the perfect stocking stuffers! [For those new to my blog, Mylo Hatzenbuhler, aka, Clyde Bauman, is a great friend and brother in the Lord, and hence I want to do all I can to get his great music out there. If you enjoy a great sense of humor, Mylo is your man!]
One of Mylo's friends, Carla (who is stranded in Canada, poor thing), has developed a line of Mylo gear here, and she likewise is the designer of the A&O gear here. Make sure to visit Carla's stores along with Mylo's and avoid all the rush and hustle of traffic and the crush at the mall!
Yesterday on the DL
11/11/2009 - James White
Started off with a song from our KJV Only friends, via the Amazing Grace Baptist Church KJV, called "Bogus Bible Blues." What a way to start! Then gave a brief report on Saturday's encounter with Imam Sayeed, and then dove back into the Geisler sermon, taking one call on God "changing his mind" at the end of the program. More important refutation of Dr. Geisler's eisegesis in this section, so if you've been following this examination, you'll want to listen in. Might even finish this soon, as there are only about 15 minutes left to cover! Here's the program.
Today on the DL: Misrepresenting, Lying, and Slandering...Along with Phone Calls!
11/05/2009 - James White
Last Tuesday afternoon I had a Twitter "convo" with Wes from Atlanta. He started off saying he was listening to my presentation on Molinism and that he was amazed at my lack of "intellectual fortitude." He went on to say that I "misrepresent and slander" anyone who does not ride my particular "hobby horse," and he mentioned Caner, Craig, and Geisler as specific individuals I had attacked. We went back and forth for a while, and I invited him to call the DL to back up his allegations. So, he did. I gave him 22 minutes to provide a logical, reasonable substantiation of his allegations of misrepresentation and slander. I simply invite any fair minded person to listen and decide for yourself. We then took calls on Reformed theology, Federal Visionism, and some other topics. Here's the program.
Today on the Dividing Line: I Get Mail, Geisler Sermon Continued
11/03/2009 - James White
Started with 12 minutes of review of two packages I had just gotten in the mail, and if you don't have a sense of humor, skip past that. :-) Spent the rest of the hour reviewing the next portion of Norman Geisler's "Why I'm Not a Five Point Calvinist" sermon. Twice I stopped to comment on why A&O will always be...A&O, unique, and out of the mainstream when it comes to political correctness and "playing nice." Here's the program.
With the Time Change...
11/02/2009 - Micah BurkePlease note that, with the time change, the DL will be on the usual time tomorrow... that is, the usual time in PHOENIX! While the rest of the US rolled their clocks back, those desert dwellers at Alpha & Omega Ministries did not.
So if you ever wonder what time it is in Arizona you can find out easily by going to the webcast page and check the clock there.
