Remembering RC, Then, Refuting More Textual Traditionalism

Started off playing a half hour interview from 2008 with RC Sproul remembering and celebrating a wonderful gift to Christ’s church.  Then we completely shifted gears and got into the issues raised by A James White Christmas Carol, an animation movie about Luke 23:34 that is desperately dishonest at its base (regarding the false accusation of my attacking David Wood, for example) and thoroughly indefensible in its presuppositions.  Be warned!  This is a jumbo-mega, almost 2.5 hours in length!  Sorry about that!  But lots of textual and historical discussion included.

Daily Bible Reading Plan for 2018

It is about that time of the year when we are introduced to creative ways to read our Bible for the next calendar year. Did you do it this year?

This is my tenth year encouraging others to take each day of the year to read and reflect on a single unit in the Gospels. Did you know there are about 365 units in the Gospels? In the past, I cited five good reasons to own a Gospel Synopsis. The fifth reason is:

“Read a synopsis in one year by reading one pericope [a gospel unit] every day. By coincidence, the synopsis contains 367 pericopes. That is, all four Gospels combined contain 367 units.

Get the following edition soon before the first of year so you are ready to go: Synopsis of the Four Gospels

 

The Pope and the Lord’s Prayer, Slander & Keyboard, SJC, Zachariades & God’s Justice

Started off looking at Pope Francis and “lead us not into temptation.” Then had to look at Slander and Keyboard (the group formerly known as Pulpit & Pen, sort of like the artist formerly known as Prince…or Purple something, I could never figure that part out) as well as some wild eyed “bigotry in the name of Christianity is fine with me” tweets from Steve Camp, and finally spent a few minutes considering Theodore Zachariades’ challenge to debate whether God’s justice requires creaturely freedom (God has sovereignly decreed it to be so, I would say).  Hate to have to spend time with S&K, SJC, etc., but bigotry in the name of the faith can never be overlooked.

Unanticipated Discussion of CBGM and P45, Then Beginning of a Review of Ijaz Ahmad’s Video on OT/NT “Corruption”

I started off thinking I’d mainly respond to Ijaz Ahmad’s video today and then open the phones, but alas, I mentioned a little bit about the Coherence Based Genealogical Method in regards to some volumes of the TuT series (Text und Textwert) that had just arrived today and people started asking questions and I ended up saying a LOT more than I had planned about the topic!  I finally did get to Ijaz’s presentation, but only got 4 and a half minutes in before had to wrap up.  A bit technical today, but that’s why some of you listen to the program, right?

Almost Mega Length DL with Five Major Topics

Started off with the MSM’s hyping of the First Apocalypse of James, a well known gnostic work from, at the earliest, the late second century, most probably the third.  Had a “Story Time with Uncle Jimmy” where I read the entirety of the work so you can respond to co-workers or others who raise the topic.  Then we discussed Bill Mounce’s comments on “whoever” at John 3:16. Followed that with a quick discussion of Francois Veron and the use of skepticism by Rome in the Counter-Reformation. Then I read a Muslim article about today’s Supreme Court case about religious freedom and what the Qur’an honestly teaches about homosexuality (and the foolishness of liberal Muslim groups who have opposed religious liberty).  Finally we spent some time reading and responding to Dr. Sonny Hernandez’s response to me on Arminianism and the Gospel, and frankly, I still haven’t a clue exactly where he is coming from.  But, we gave it the old college try!  Nearly 110 minutes for the program today.
