Started off with some exciting news about the upcoming Rome/Israel/Athens/Ephesus cruise in September (see the previous article here on the blog). Then we looked briefly at Jemar Tisby’s comment about James Cone before looking at a very, very odd piece from Facebook identifying Yahweh as Satan (yes, Marcion still prowls the earth). Then we got into the heart of the program by looking at a recent video by Jay Dyer on why he is no longer a Protestant. I challenged the Reformed in the audience to really know what they believe so that they can recognize these kinds of arguments. Lots of reading recommendations provided as well. Get a deep seat in the saddle for this one!
Started off looking at texts like Isaiah 7:14, 9:6, and Micah 5:2 relating to prophetic utterances concerning the Incarnation of the Son. Then moved over to 2 Timothy 4 and Paul’s experience at the end of his life with Alexander the Coppersmith and others. Our plan is to do a third program this week, on Friday, at 11am. Join us then!
We continued our response to Pastor Mike Winger’s July video regarding limited atonement, today focusing on the topic of intercession. Important material!
Started off with the outrageous, racist rants of “His Grace, the Right Reverend Bishop Talbert Wesley Swan II” (straight from his wikipedia page) and his swinging the club of “white supremacy” at anyone or anything, logic, rationality and truth notwithstanding. Then we considered the advice of the left edge of evangelicalism’s fall into the morass of cultural confusion, this time looking at Preston Sprinkle and J.D. Greear’s “pronoun hospitality.” Then we dove deep into the attempt to impugn (and twist) the witness of papyri manuscript P46 at Ephesians 3:9 by Dr. Jeffrey Riddle in this article. Those of you who normally just listen will really want to watch that section as it is heavily graphic-dependent. Important materials and issues!
Had some fun with a new video from Gene Kim, played a new RFG intro, looked a little at Steven Anderson and the TRTrads, delving into issues of textual criticism, the transmission of the text, etc. Then for the last 20 minutes or so transitioned into an important discussion about the supernatural and the life of the Bible-believing, sola scriptura confessing Christian in light of the amazing events in the life of my fellow pastor at Apologia Church, Jeff Durbin. Just over 90 minutes today.
