Started off with the D. Wade debacle and the influence of the world’s insanity on “transgenderism.” Then we started a movement to have Francis renamed “Francis the Marxist” (it has a ring do it, I think). Mentioned the ecumenical “Mass” being held in St. Pierre, Calvin’s old haunts, and then got to the real topic of the day. We played portions from a single very long (3 hour) discussion of textual issues (Part 1 found here, part 2 found here) discussion of textual critical issues by Dr. Peter Gurry, James Snapp Jr., and Dr. Jeffrey Riddle, from the Talking Christianity–Apologetics YT channel. This is a very important discussion as it truly exposes the circular nature of the TR Only position as it is being promoted today.
Today on Radio Free Geneva I started out with what turned into an almost 50 minute history discussion relating to Augustine and Reformed theology. Then, upon completing that, I turned to chapter 9 in John Lennox’s book, Determined to Believe, and began reviewing his comments on this key text. Got down to verse 40, will continue from there next time!
Acts 2:39 should be thought of by Reformed believers right along with Acts 13:48 and other texts teaching and proclaiming the sovereignty of God in salvation, but it normally is not. Why? Tradition. Today we spent the entire program, basically, looking at this one topic, digging into the original languages and considering the message of Peter’s response to the inquiry, “Men and brethren, what shall we do?” Both a theological inquiry as well as an example of, hopefully, consistent application of exegetical rules and norms. Then at the end a little announcement about our intended trip up to Moscow, Idaho for some spirited debates! Check it out.
Talked a bit about our time at G3, then up in NY at New Hyde Park Baptist Church, talked a little about the New World Translation of Jehovah’s Witnesses, and then started on calls, with discussions of 2 Cor. 5:21 as well as the eternal generation of the Son taking up most of the time.
Back to live streaming today (yay!). Covered, very quickly, the questions asked by Marcus Rogers in one of those “I’m going to prop my phone up on my dashboard in a parking lot” type videos regarding the Trinity. I was named specifically, so I responded specifically, though briefly. Then we looked at 2 Thess. 2:15 as quoted by Jay Dyer in his “10 Reasons” video we started responding to last week.
The Dividing Line is on YouTube video. Our YouTube channel also provides videos of most of the debates that Dr. White has done over the years. Take some time and browse it to see if there is something there of interest to you.
