Two very different portions of a more than 90 minute program today! First we got back to John Lennox’s book, Determined to Believe and its attempt to deal with John 6. We spent most of our time here, as it is invaluable to see how tradition can impact and, in a few places, completely overthrow the direct content of the text itself. Then after more than an hour we moved, briefly, to listening to a video from IFB, KJV Only preacher Andrew Sluder, “Calvinism is HOGWASH,” where we learned that we are only partly saved, and we are not adopted as the sons and daughters of God “until the rapture,” and a few other only semi-humorous things.
Today on Radio Free Geneva I started out with what turned into an almost 50 minute history discussion relating to Augustine and Reformed theology. Then, upon completing that, I turned to chapter 9 in John Lennox’s book, Determined to Believe, and began reviewing his comments on this key text. Got down to verse 40, will continue from there next time!
Finished off 2019 with a MEGA edition of Radio Free Geneva (2 hours), first looking at Leighton Flowers’ comments on the glory of God and then listening to comments made by the panel at the Unbelievable USA Conference on the subject of Calvinism. Then we looked a bit at John Lennox’s comments on John 6, but will continue that more in-depth on a future Radio Free Geneva.
We continued our response to Pastor Mike Winger’s July video regarding limited atonement, today focusing on the topic of intercession. Important material!
Pastor Mike Winger posted a response to me on July 23, 2019 on the subject of the atonement. I watched it at that time, but never responded to it, as I was traveling, Michael Brown had responded to me as well, and I just didn’t get around to it. But I kept it in the back of my mind, and listened to it again on a ride, so we started responding today, and will try to wrap up replying to it tomorrow. Here is the video I am responding to.
