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.

Reviewing Recent Interactions on Line, then Back to Erasmus and the Text

Went over various interactions with folks regarding social justice and the like, including some Anthony Bradley quotes, at the top of the program (actually had a few comments on developments in Mormonism at the very start), and then switched back to Erasmus and the book of Revelation, then engaging with arguments/accusations made from the textual traditionalists.  Finished up watching a brief video of an encounter between Steven Anderson and some brothers in a park in Tempe.  100 minutes!

Shepherd’s Conference 2019 Q&A: Mohler, Dever, Duncan, MacArthur, Johnson

I had intended to cover more than one topic today. Failed miserably.  We spent the first half an hour with Pastor Tom Buck who was at the Q&A session of the Shepherd’s Conference yesterday and was able to give us a first-hand report on his impressions of what took place.  Then we played a major portion of the Q&A, interacting with the statements as they were made, seeking to understand why Dr. Mohler responded as he did, the relevance of the questions, etc.  Though I sought to be fair and balanced and gracious, I am sure many will find reason to dislike my comments. But, my hope is simply to bring some background and some light to a confusing situation.  1:56 in length!

Dr. Anthony Bradley’s Vitriolic Anti-Reformed Baptist Explosion

This morning in an exchange with Kyle “I am afraid to be in the same room with James White” James Howard, Dr. Anthony Bradley of King’s College (where he teaches theology and, ironically, ethics) truly exposed the attitude he holds toward Reformed Baptists of all kinds. You will note the scare quotes around “reformed” in his comments. I tweeted a brief response below.

Reprehensible to read this thread from @drantbradley viciously and arrogantly attacking a wide range of men he has never met.  This is tribalism in its fullest—a term he loves to throw at others while practicing it to the nth degree hypocritically himself.

Let me put this simply.

Intersectionality is utterly incompatible with a belief in the sovereign kingship of God and His divine decree.

It is God who makes men to differ, God who makes the lame and the blind and the rich and the poor.

Reformed men believe we are called to seek His glory through the application of His truth *within* the context of His sovereign decree, which will result in the praise of His glorious grace.  We do not overthrow His decree by seeking to obey His commands.

So who is the “Reformed” man?

How can one promote paradigms based upon sociological and political norms that fundamentally undercut and deny the sovereignty of God in the affairs of God’s creation while continuing to pretend fidelity to the core of Reformed theology?

I will gladly stand firm in my commitment to the core, the definitional, the heart of what makes someone Reformed, and allow the formalists to mock me while they promote man-centered systems infected with the disease of intersectionality.

God knows.

Future Predictions, Social Issues, Refuting Bradly Mason, Erasmus, and Steven Anderson Chapter 3

Caught up with a lot of recent developments in the decline of the West and then started looking at some material from Christian social justice advocates, including a tweet from Beth Moore, and then an article from Bradly Mason.  Then we switched gears to the textual issue, looking at Erasmus’ work on the book of Revelation and the reality that all texts, TR included, were derived through textual critical means.  Finally we started listening to and responding to the third installment of Steven Anderson’s review of The King James Only Controversy.  1:40 in length!
