Talked a bit about the announcement from Master’s that they are going to be putting out (and soon) the Legacy Standard Bible, an update/revision of the (I assume) 1995 NASB. Some thoughts on some of the unique elements of the translation. Then we talked a bit about what the “gift” is in Ephesians 2:8-9, and then took calls on a variety of topics, including presuppositionalism.
Started with a little video that Apologia Studios put together (thanks to Carman and Isaac) of Jeff and I competing in the apologists’ bracket, and then looked at a tweet from R. Scott Clark kicking me out of Reformedville (well, nothing overly new there), before moving back to the 2018 interview with Leighton Flowers and Ken Wilson. Last program for the week as I need to go help my daughter and her family move to Phoenix (yay!). Back, Lord willing, on Monday.
Discussed a little about the arrest of Rodney Howard Browne, looked at NT Wright’s sad article in Time.com, and then dove into the important historical issues related to the claims of Ken Wilson from his 2018 interview with Leighton Flowers. Will be back tomorrow again!
I was on The Line of Fire with Michael Brown an hour before we aired this episode, so Michael joined me to discuss the apologetics contest on Twitter, but then more important things as well after that. Jeff Durbin called in and tried to argue that I, as Master Miyagi, should want him, as Danielsan, to win the contest, should we face each other later this week. I pointed out that Master Miyagi took down the bad guy at the start of the second film, at which point Jeff complained that I am not supposed to know the Karate Kid as well as he does. Eventually, after some technical issues, Michael and I finished up, and I started some background discussion on Ken Wilson’s theory that Reformed theology is nothing more than ancient Manichaeism. We will continue the study tomorrow by listening to the interview between Leighton Flowers and Ken Wilson from 2018, found here.
Spent most of the program on the 90th Psalm, looking at it from the aspects of both the Hebrew and the Greek Septuagint, and its important message for us today. Then a few comments in response to Ken Wilson, and then a few comments on the cancellation of the SBC summer meeting, and hence the extension of the current president, etc.
