Started off looking at the comments of Richard Dawkins from his relatively new book, Outgrowing God, wherein he demonstrates a fundamental unwillingness to accurately represent the object of his disdain, that being Christianity. Then we began looking at Diane Gaskins’ article attacking Rosaria Butterfield. We will continue that analysis on the next program.
I guess inerrancy was the theme in looking at just a few portions of the discussion between Peter Williams and Bart Ehrman on Justin Brierley’s Unbelievable program and then Mike Licona’s discussion with Richard Howe. After that we tried to sneak callers in for the last 15 minutes…and ended up going half an hour, so, 75 minutes total.
Decided to do a program about 15 hours after getting home from Australia, so I hope I made some sense! Seemed OK to me anyway! Talked about the explosion of egalitarianism in light of the “go home” controversy first, then moved on to developments in the transgender movement’s attempts to destroy any meaningful understanding of sexuality and gender. Eventually got to report on the trip, though I think I spent a solid 15 minutes or so on something that may only be important to me: basic rules for approaching a speaker after he has spoken. Don’t get mad at me, try standing for a few hours in my shoes first! Then we went over the debates and events “down under.” I did not even make mention of some of the wild-eyed attacks launched by folks who simply wish they were doing similar things—those attacks stand as their own refutation.
Next program on Thursday will be a Dividing Line/Apologia Radio Mash Up from ReformCon. Join us…when? I haven’t a clue! Stay tuned!
Reported on the past week up in Salt Lake City, the witnessing at the Conference, and the two debates and one dialogue as well. Lots of background information and side stories! Then at the end I looked at the result of the “hug heard round the world” in Dallas and the entire mantra of “black forgiveness,” looking at James Cone’s horrific words that seem to be part and parcel of the “woke church,” “…blacks must treasure their hostility, bringing it fully into consciousness as an irreducible quality of their identity” (_Black Theology and Black Power_, p. 144).
