Covered a ton of topics including the consistency of John’s witness with the Synoptic Gospels regarding the day of the Crucifixion (Friday), modalism in the Book of Mormon and the “Joseph Smith Translation,” some thoughts on my upcoming sermon from Romans 4:25 (this coming Sunday), and some loose ends on materials relevant to Ken Wilson’s dissertation and the early Fathers.
Answered an audience question from an old friend about how to handle differences in the pastoral staff on the issue of textual critical theory, and then got back into the Flowers/Wilson debate. Had to explain a few more things about Manichaeism that are, well, somewhat adult in their orientation, so keep that in mind. Will be on Chris Arnzen’s Iron Sharpens Iron broadcast for two hours tomorrow, so, no program, but we will be back Thursday and Friday!
I was on The Line of Fire with Michael Brown an hour before we aired this episode, so Michael joined me to discuss the apologetics contest on Twitter, but then more important things as well after that. Jeff Durbin called in and tried to argue that I, as Master Miyagi, should want him, as Danielsan, to win the contest, should we face each other later this week. I pointed out that Master Miyagi took down the bad guy at the start of the second film, at which point Jeff complained that I am not supposed to know the Karate Kid as well as he does. Eventually, after some technical issues, Michael and I finished up, and I started some background discussion on Ken Wilson’s theory that Reformed theology is nothing more than ancient Manichaeism. We will continue the study tomorrow by listening to the interview between Leighton Flowers and Ken Wilson from 2018, found here.
Spent most of the program on the 90th Psalm, looking at it from the aspects of both the Hebrew and the Greek Septuagint, and its important message for us today. Then a few comments in response to Ken Wilson, and then a few comments on the cancellation of the SBC summer meeting, and hence the extension of the current president, etc.
Two subjects on today’s program, first a look at a glorious passage from Zechariah, and then a lengthy discussion of the nature of argumentation and scholarship in Ken Wilson’s The Foundation of Augustinian-Calvinism. Ninety minute program today, and we plan to be back tomorrow as well! Enjoy!
