Decided to squeeze a DL in today, just an hour in length. John 6:44-45, 65, considered in light of the Provisionist controversy. Enjoy!
We opened the phone and took some calls, such as on the canon of the Greek Septuagint, and whether we are in constant sin because we do not love God perfectly. Then we looked at some numbers relating to the current panic relating to the pandemic, and then moved back into the in-depth analysis and refutation of Ken Wilson’s Oxford dissertation. We will be moving to his concluding claims soon, and then a summary refutation will be offered as well. Stick with us!
Talked a little about a new video from Ancient Paths TV about Bart Ehrman, playing a few clips and making application. Then we gave an introduction to a vitally important variant of Gnosticism in ancient history, Valentinianism. Don’t let the name dissuade you, this is really important stuff! We will take a few calls tomorrow to start off the program, and then wrap up the week as we will not be doing a program on Friday. See you tomorrow!
Two main topics today, first, the reality of how much our conversation has changed in the past forty years, illustrated by Mayor Lori Lightfoot in Chicago and the inevitable relationship between her lesbianism and her attitude toward the Christian church. Then we dove into a summary introduction to the Gnostic myth of creation, something we’ve been promising to do for a few months now! Get a deep seat in the saddle, as this is a topic with a wide, wide variety of applications for the apologetically minded!
We started off with four phone calls on various topics from around the country, and then listened to some comments from Leighton Flowers insisting that I never use unbiased sources in my response to Ken Wilson. Then we had a little church history discussion before signing off for the week. About 84 minutes or so.
