A Study in Projection: Responding to JD Hall

Tis the season to have to respond to another low in internet “polemics,” and so we did, responding to JD Hall’s show, which featured a picture he trolled from my social media feed, “James White is What Would Happen if Ignorance and Arrogance Had a Love Child.” Yep, that’s the title, and the substance matched the same level of childishness. It is particularly worrisome that JD’s memory is becoming twisted by his insistence upon being RIGHT about everything. He is now making things up as he goes along. In any case, we demonstrate the massive holes in his diatribe and continue to stand against his efforts to bully and slander others with impugnity.

Thoughts on Thanksgiving, a Bit More Cone, Matt Hall and CRT

Well Thanksgiving is coming up so we spent some time talking about thanks, contentment, etc., from a biblical perspective. Then we moved back to reading a bit from James Cone, made application to Talbert Swan, and then moved from there to an article recently posted from Dr. Matt Hall at SBTS regarding “racial reconciliation.” We asked some honest questions of Dr. Hall that I think really need answers. Let’s hope for them soon!

Difficult Days for Rome’s Apologists, the Words of James Cone, Unvarnished

Started off with a discussion of the quandary faced by Rome’s apologists today as they deal with the reality of an unorthodox Pope. Sort of makes their arguments against sola scriptura just a tad vacuous. Then we moved over to looking at the reality that men like Bishop Talbert Swan, who throw around accusations of racism and white supremacy with abandon, are the direct result of the writings and teachings of the father of black theology, James Cone. Spent quite a while reading Cone’s words directly so that everyone can fully understand the depth of the man’s racism, and the extent of the man’s heresy from any meaningfully biblical perspective.

Brief Thoughts on the Ehrman/Williams Dialogue and the Licona/Howe Dialogue, Then Open Phones

I guess inerrancy was the theme in looking at just a few portions of the discussion between Peter Williams and Bart Ehrman on Justin Brierley’s Unbelievable program and then Mike Licona’s discussion with Richard Howe. After that we tried to sneak callers in for the last 15 minutes…and ended up going half an hour, so, 75 minutes total.

Bishop Swan’s Racism, Pronouns Matter, Jeffrey Riddle’s Abuse of P46

Started off with the outrageous, racist rants of “His Grace, the Right Reverend Bishop Talbert Wesley Swan II” (straight from his wikipedia page) and his swinging the club of “white supremacy” at anyone or anything, logic, rationality and truth notwithstanding. Then we considered the advice of the left edge of evangelicalism’s fall into the morass of cultural confusion, this time looking at Preston Sprinkle and J.D. Greear’s “pronoun hospitality.” Then we dove deep into the attempt to impugn (and twist) the witness of papyri manuscript P46 at Ephesians 3:9 by Dr. Jeffrey Riddle in this article. Those of you who normally just listen will really want to watch that section as it is heavily graphic-dependent. Important materials and issues!
