A First Century Witness to Justification By Faith Followed by Open Phones

Spent time at the start of the program looking at the witness of Clement’s epistle to the Corinthians from the first century to the doctrine of sola fide, and then took phone calls on a number of different topics including the gifts in 1 Corinthians.

Offering Incense to Caesar: Are You Ready?

Covered a bunch of topics today on the program—a few announcements about the upcoming debates in Salt Lake City and in Australia started us off. Then we looked at some comments from Bassam Zawadi regarding the view of some Christian apologists of the Bible and the resurrection. Also looked through Romans 8:31-34 in response to Dr. David Allen’s assertion that there are no texts in Scripture that connect atonement and election. But most of my time was focused upon the controversy that came up when Drew Brees recorded a completely innocuous little video about bringing your Bible to school. Well, it was posted by Focus on the Family, and since Focus hasn’t been willing to bow the knee to the LGBTQ deity, well, Drew must pay. Talked about persecution in the early church, different types of apostasy, and how each Christian today must decide when Caesar is demanding we bow the knee in areas where we simply cannot today.

JD Greear, Homosexuality, Michael Licona, Certainty and Assurance

Started off looking at JD Greear’s blog article, which reflected pretty much what he had said in a sermon back during the winter, regarding homosexuality.  Then looked at a tweet from Jonathan Merritt, replied to by Brian Zahnd, on the accusation of “idolatry of the family.”  Then we moved on to play a portion of a video from Mike Licona wherein he spoke of being “80% sure Christianity is true,” and discussed not only the issues of certainty and assurance, but more importantly epistemology and the difference that arises from our theology and apologetic methodology.

Debate Reports from South Africa: Graeme Codrington, Ayoob Karim, Yusuf Ismail

Spent 75 minutes going over the trip to South Africa and the debates we did, with special emphasis upon an article Graeme Codrington wrote in response to our debate on the marriage issue in Johannesburg.  Showed pictures, told the story of my “chance” (hahaha) encounter with one of Jehovah’s Witnesses in the darkness at sunrise at the end of the pier, etc.  Thanks again for all who made the trip possible!

Christian, Where is Their Here? – The Dividing Line with Rich Pierce

Once again Rich Pierce sits in for James and continues with the question from the last program of “where is your here?” Colossians 3:11 is the baseline text as Rich examines the kinds of “novel” and “interesting” thoughts that many so called conservative evangelicals seem to be so fascinated with. Then he turns to how Critical Theory and Intersectionality are already deeply rooted in respected institutions and churches all around us.
