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.
As promised I continued in my response to Hank Hanegraaff’s attack on sola scriptura, finishing up the entire video, dealing with a wide variety of issues. Important stuff for those looking at or dealing with Eastern Orthodoxy. May be doing a program again tomorrow.
I was pointed this morning to a video of Hank Hanegraaff (joined by Dr. Nathan Jacobs) attacking the doctrine of sola scriptura. Given I debated Jimmy Akin and Tim Staples (Roman Catholics) on The Bible Answer Man Broadcast decades ago, I felt it necessary (and useful) to begin a response to the claims made. Nothing new as we have surely addressed all of this in the recent past and literally since the 1990s. But important as the topic remains central. I still have nine minutes left to review, and I think another video on the eucharist is due out soon as well. We will continue the review on Tuesday.
Ran through some quick discussions of a few topics in the first half hour, and then took calls in the second. Covered a few Francis the Marxist stories, and then looked briefly at Ken Wilson’s anti-Calvinist polemic (dressed up as a work of history), The Foundation of Augustinian-Calvinism. Then pointed folks to a new resource for Qur’an studies, Fadel Soliman’s Bridges’ Translation of the Ten Qira’at of the Noble Quran. Went to the phones with calls on teaching teens apologetics, church history, reaching Mormons, etc.
I wish there was a way for me to easily make notation of all the topics when we do open phones, but alas, I have not mastered that skill. So we talked about Mormonism and textual criticism and inerrancy and even a call about the Christian view of medical intervention for someone who is truly (genetically) intersexed! Also had a long call about resources on church history. So, a little something for everyone on today’s program!
