But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

A Little Molinism, and a Little Oneness

Written by

Reviewed a William Lane Craig video on the limitations inherent upon God due to “middle knowledge” during the first half hour, and then looked at key passages on the pre-incarnate existence of the Son as a divine Person in the second half hour.  Well, ok, we went like ten minutes...

Spent a good deal of time playing the final portions of Ijaz Ahmad’s video on “the corruption of Scripture,” working through a lot of pretty in-dept stuff regarding the Greek Septuagint, etc.  Then spent a bit of time looking at a supposed dilemma for Christians from Paul...

Started off looking carefully at the text of 2 John 7-11 once again, this time as it has been abused by ostensibly Reformed folks.  Then we looked at some of the shenanigans of the “only Calvinists are saved” brigade on line.  Moved eventually to the death of LDS President...

Brief Thoughts on the Death of Thomas Monson

Written by
There is simply no question in my mind that Joseph Smith did not expect his “work” to continue into the future. He left no meaningful mechanism for the continuance of that work in reference to its leadership, resulting in the initial split right after his death. But the immediate...

Took the whole program to review 2017 and consider a little bit about trends and things to consider for the future.  UPDATE:  the kind brothers and sisters at Sovereign rushed to get the video I noted about Fritz Erbe posted.  Here is the link.  Please share it with others!

A two-plus hour long episode that will mainly be of interest to those who study textual criticism and who have an interest in the Black Hebrew Israelite movement—not the normal topics you see put together but that’s what we addressed today, going into clips from Ron Shields, aka...

It is about that time of the year when we are introduced to creative ways to read our Bible for the next calendar year. Did you do it this year?

This is my tenth year encouraging others to take each day of the year to read and reflect on a single unit in the Gospels. Did you know there are about 365...

Regular length program today, spending most of the time discussing some Hebrew Israelite videos about yours truly, and then included some comments on Psalm 2.  I mentioned a devotional I did last evening at PRBC on Psalm 2, and here is the link.

Three sections to today’s 2 hour, 20 minute long program:  first, we responded to Jacob Prasch’s reply to last weeks Radio Free Geneva. But unlike Prasch, we played his comments not just once, but twice, carefully analyzing his entire response as a classic example of a complete abandonment of proper forms of argumentation and

Judaism’s Influence on the Hebrew Israelites

Written by

Abu Khamr (Truth After Knowledge) joins guest host Vocab Malone. They delve into the mysterious origins of the “Hebrew Israelite” movement, demonstrating its founders were heavily influenced by Rabbinical Judaism. “Faithful to God” makes a cameo to give insight on Jonah, “Lashawan Quadash” and British Israelism.

Did a live Radio Free Geneva from up here in Colorado (or, from under Brewton Parker, all depends) looking at a video posted by Jacob Prasch on the subject.  Standard stuff, to be sure, but always good to respond to that which gets the most press anyway.  Enjoy, and don’t forget tomorrow’s DL at 6pm EDT with Vocab Malone!

Hebrew Israelite History: The Fractured 90s

Written by

Vocab Malone subs for Dr. White. He is joined by former “Hebrew Israelite” Chadash who gives an insider’s view of significant doctrinal changes and schisms within the Hebrew Israelite movement. Apologist “Faithful to God” jumps in and drops knowledge about the failed Y2K “prophecy” and its fallout.

We did a Skype based DL today looking at some comments William Lane Craig made about the atonement, and comparing and contrasting these with Hebrews 7:22-25.  A good deal of discussion of how we derive our theology and why it is important.

Don’t forget that on Thursday at 6pm EDT Vocab Malone will be guest hosting and doing an interview

Why All Lives Matter

Written by

Black Lives Matter! Police Lives Matter! All Lives Matter! And so goes the chanting, the memes, the blog posts, the Facebook arguments. And in the midst of it all, something fundamental is being missed. Sure, there is a great deal of emotion right now. The thin skin of civilization has been punctured and we are all aware (even if we don’t

Did a Skype-based Dividing Line from Colorado today, spending quite some time on Ignatius in response to claims by some Muslim apologists about his views.  Then discussed some quotes from Bruce Ware on “eternal functional subordinationism” and the entire conflict.  Finished up addressing He Who Judges From Afar doubling down

Quickly mentioned some of the evidence of the rise of totalitarianism in the United States, then made note of some of the wild videos showing a huge response to our addressing Hebrew Israelism, and finished up with a rather passionate response to JD Hall and Christian News and the attack upon Apologia Church.

Three Old Titles Become New Again on Kindle

Written by

Every now and then I get a phone call from someone wanting to find one of James’ first three books in our bookstore. These titles have been out of print since Crowne Publications closed its doors around 1993. While the technology of our world has raced forward I am not always able to keep up with it’s advances. I can only hope to

Well, this program won’t be interesting for everyone, but for those who are interested in a dialogue on key issues with a representative of Hebrew Israelism—should fit the bill!  A little over an hour with Elder Rawchaa Shayar on the deity of Christ, the Bible, Babylon—lots and lots of things.  Best to be sitting down
