Drawing the Lines: Matt Walsh, Serene Jones, Ron Underwood

Did a live DL from London (Westminster) today via Zoom (worked really well!) discussing how we “draw the lines,” using three examples to provide us with some perspective for this challenging discussion.  We looked at Matt Walsh, Roman Catholic, who was interviewed on the CrossPolitic program last week.  Then we looked at Serene Jones, head of Union Theological Seminary, and comments she made in a recent NYT article.  Then we looked at comments made directly to me and about me by Ron Underwood, a Denver area resident who, I think, would find John Calvin insufficiently Calvinistic.  How do we know what is definitional of the faith?  What about inconsistencies?  Traditions?  Are Arminians all lost and going to hell?  Are Calvinists going to hell if they are not sufficiently hard-nosed about it?  What about Rome?  Lots of things to think about today from London!

A Few Opening Thoughts then Open Phones

Pretty much open phones today with good questions like “Did Augustine really have the gospel?” and “How central is the issue of credobaptism vs. infant baptism?”  Last US DL for a few weeks as I will be overseas, but we do intend to sneak a few programs in (probably in the mornings here in the US) as time permits.

William Lane Craig and the Basis of Faith, Douglas Beaumont’s Failed Attempt at Redefining John 6:44

Started off responding to this article by William Lane Craig, once again dealing with the relationship between God’s revelation in Scripture and our knowledge, including our knowledge of who Christ was (and is).  Craig is the primary source for Andy Stanley’s position, by the way, as you will see.  Then we transitioned into a full-on refutation of this article by Dr. Douglas Beaumont, formerly of Southern Evangelical Seminary and one of the many staff and students who have converted to Romanism.

Cultural Madness, Atonement Issues, Textual Traditionalism

A morning DL for us here today, the only program for this week. We started with some commentary on current cultural madness and rapid decline, including a grandmother bearing a child for her homosexual son. Then we looked at issues relating to the atonement, first in comments from Taylor Marshall and Timothy Gordon on the Mass, and then from William Lane Craig on the extent of the atonement.  Finally we transitioned into a review of an article by Dr. Riddle ostensibly criticizing me for inconsistency in citing Jan Krans’ work, Beyond What is Written.  We demonstrated the errors in Riddle’s thinking and verified the consistent value of historical works for documenting the history of the Greek New Testament.

A Steve Hays Face-Plant, Closer Look at Texts like 1 John 3:1, A Tad of Steven Anderson, Four Phone Calls

Looked at a few topics to start out, including a short hit piece from Steve Hays that missed the mark by a mile.  Then we did a little more TC reasoning looking at another claim from the TT’s that doing modern textual criticism is unbiblical, and then moved on to a few more quotes from Steven Anderson in response to my book.  Then we started taking calls and covered such topics as theodicy, particular redemption, and can the Pope receive new revelations.
