First, for those who do not listen regularly to Justin Brierley’s Unbelievable radio program (programme in the UK!) I am on the currently featured program which aired this past weekend, debating Dr. David Instone-Brewer from Cambridge on whether Jesus was a Calvinist or not. Someone on Twitter got all bent out of shape by the title (which, of course, I did not choose), but obviously the discussion is on whether Jesus taught the sovereignty of God in salvation or not. This was the “debate” I did early in the morning of my marathon ride back on April 2nd. Yes, I was fully decked out in my biking outfit while discussing this topic. And yes, it was dark outside when we started. Still is a useful discussion. Here’s the program.
Second, many thanks for all the kind congratulations regarding my wife and I entering into the next phase of life by looking forward to the birth of our first grandchild around Christmas time.
Third, we will be doing the Dividing Line tomorrow at 3pm MST, 6pm EDT, and going for another Mega sized program. I think I can get the Matthew Vines response done in an hour, but, since I want to add to some of what I said regarding Romans 1, I can’t make any promises. I also want to comment on some things Tony Campolo said on a Canadian TV program this week as well.
