James White and Jason Robinson Discuss Romans 8:28-34

Pastor Jason Robinson from West Virginia joined us on the program today to offer competing (and conflicting!) interpretations of this key soteriological text.  30 minutes of exegesis then 30 minutes of cross-ex, with ten minutes of closing statements. We developed connection issues during the cross-examination and had to go to the phone to finish things up.  Jeff Durbin joined me after the debate to discuss some of the issues raised in the program.

Responding to the IFB/KJVOs: James White and Jeff Durbin

Did a two part program today. The first (this portion) is a discussion between James and Jeff on the issues raised by a spate of IFB/KJVO videos coming out of the Steven Anderson wing of the IFB movement.  We discuss the gospel and the key issues that followers of this movement need to consider.   Nearly two hours of conversation!

Catching Up on Recent Events Before Leaving Town

Caught up on a number of articles I had saved before I leave tomorrow for St. Charles and other locations (see the banner ads for details).  Right before the program started Dr. Michael Brown published an article about Twitter’s banning (ready for this?) “deadnaming.”  Yeah.  Deadnaming.  That’s like when you call Bruce Jenner…Bruce Jenner instead of “Caitlyn.”  So, in other words, it is Twitter demanding you bow your knee to the insanity and join in! It’s only going to get worse, folks, believe me.  Anyway, we talked a bit about an article warning about “interfaith dialogues,” we talked about the upcoming pre-conference at G3 on Social Justice, and I finished off discussing the fact that I joined the membership of Apologia Church (Pastor Jeff Durbin) on Sunday, and intend to do what I can to edify the saints there (and through that work many others, since Apologia definitely has a focus upon wide distribution of the preached and taught Word). Obviously, this will not change the mission or focus of Alpha and Omega Ministries, it will only mean I am teaching and preaching and fellowshipping in a different location on Sundays.

Beth Moore’s Racist Library and Open Phones

Started off with a report on our dear brother Jeff Durbin’s current condition after a medical issue last evening.  Then we looked at a comment from Beth Moore about how you could, I guess, make your library more “inclusive” by considering the color of the skin of the author. You can guess what I said about that.  Then we went to the phones and had some great calls on the textual variant at Ephesians 5:30, on God’s sovereignty and personal responsibility, a bit more on Acts 2:39, and on NT reliability.  A bit over an hour today.  And don’t forget, we plan on doing another program on Friday as well!  But I hope to make that a Radio Free Geneva episode! Stay tuned!

The Wiccans and the Presbies, then Open Phones with Great Calls

Briefly commented on the article that talked about how there are more Wiccans in the US now than “mainline” Presbyterians, and then we opened the phones and had great calls on such topics as David’s wives, Jeremiah 32 and Acts 2 (infant baptism), and judgment of believers (and more).  We will do another program scheduled for Wednesday, and then a Black Friday edition as well (gotta catch up after missing all of last week).  Enjoy!
