Responded to the following slander from Jonathan Merritt, provided the context, etc., and discussed a great deal (nearly an hour) on slavery, historical contexts, Biblical interpretation, etc., and the fact that, basically, you just aren’t allowed to let the Bible speak for itself any longer. Then looked at Bart Ehrman’s 2017 Christmas thoughts with a focus upon the “God of Christmas” he presented.
Used the comments made by Matt Dillahunty and Glen Scrivener on the Unbelievable program as a platform for a discussion of apologetic methodology and application today on the program, going just under 90 minutes. This included definitions of presuppositionalism as well as a short discussion of slavery in the Bible as well. Last program till next week due to the G3 Conference in Atlanta. See you all there!
Started off the program with a look at James 3 in light of the arrival of 2020 and the challenges we will be facing therein. Moved on to discuss the totalitarian Left and its attack upon everything that is godly and true. We connected this to the recent “trans-gender” decision in the UK. Then we discussed Pope Francis’ comments about “proselytization” via Google Translate. Wide variety of topics today!
Covered a wide variety of things including a little bit about the miracle of baby August, possible conversations with family members over Christmas regarding the Bible (taking from Sye’s debate with Matt Dillahunty), and a brief discussion of Pope Francis’ comments concerning Mary as co-redemptrix with Christ. We plan on doing programs on Wednesday and Friday as well.
Started off looking at the comments of Richard Dawkins from his relatively new book, Outgrowing God, wherein he demonstrates a fundamental unwillingness to accurately represent the object of his disdain, that being Christianity. Then we began looking at Diane Gaskins’ article attacking Rosaria Butterfield. We will continue that analysis on the next program.
