Took just a few minutes at the start to talk about a recent court case in which a judge overturned a Trump administration protection of the freedom of conscience amongst medical professionals and institutions and in so doing used yet another NewSpeak term, “Gender Care,” a euphemism for “bodily mutilation.” Then I went over Ephesians 3:9 and the blatant error in the reading of the TR. Finally we played sections from the Text and Canon Conference presentations and Q&A and interacted with them. Last DL till after the 21st!
As was needed I responded to the slanderous misuse of a video clip by Eric Mason, author of Woke Church, for the first hour or so today, including the playing of the entire context from the July 26, 2016 Dividing Line from which he took his clip. A wide ranging discussion about the woke church, critical theory, identity politics, and the degradation of reason and communication in the church today. Then we looked at the “challenge” Dr. Riddle posted on Tuesday and discussed how Riddle’s diminishment of the importance and value of the “vaunted papyri” in his service of the TR can be validly used against any proper defense of the NT that we would present today. Just under 90 minutes today, and we plan on doing another program tomorrow, same time.
Since I had travel problems yesterday I decided to sneak one more program in before I (Lord willing) fly out this afternoon. Talked a little about the textual variant at 1 Peter 3:15 and then moved on to the controversy that has arisen regarding the assertion that one must see David as a “rapist” regarding Bathsheba (2 Samuel 11-12, Psalm 51).
This is a 90 minute examination of the background, history, and data regarding the famed “Comma Johanneum,” 1 John 5:7 in the King James Version of the Bible. In the last half hour we play portions of a video from Pastor Taylor DeSoto seeking to present a positive case for the inclusion of the text and respond.
