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
Started off with a (to me) really interesting discussion of a recent study in textual criticism that led me, in the minutes just before the program, off into the woods of Mormonism and BYU. At least I thought it was fascinating! But we eventually got out of the woods and did open phones...
Talked a little bit about a Twitter exchange regarding LGBTQ books, and then moved to a rather full refutation of Bart Ehrman’s comments on Mark vs. John on the day of Jesus’ crucifixion (Nisan 13 vs. Nisan 14), and then went to open phones with once again a wide variety of calls and...
Spent most of the start of the show looking at a video from Jordan Peterson and interacting with the concepts of suffering and human purpose in his lectures. Dr. Peterson has been great in exposing the fundamental flaws and simple irrationality of many of the left’s pet projects today,...
Started off talking about the new “Preacher’s Bible” from Grace To You which I have now dubbed “The Assault Bible.” Light hearted discussion, I assure you. Then we talked about the announcement that the next editions of the NA and UBS Greek texts are due...
Took a little time to comment on my listening to some material on Bill Johnson (Bethel Church, Redding, CA) this morning at the start of the program, and then moved into a lengthy Islamic discussion, dealing with common misunderstandings on the topic of the atonement amongst Muslims, playing clips...
Covered about half an hour of “topics” from the Ebionites to current discussions of “insanity,” and then we went to open phones with lots of questions on a wide variety of topics including the Trinity, Oneness, and two calls on textual variants (Romans 5:1, John 10:29).
Started off with a few miscellaneous items, including a brief review of the Matthew Vines/Sean McDowell dialogue from a few weeks ago, a little reading on Basilides the early church gnostic heretic and his views, and then I played some portions from the Ex Nihilo podcast that the Hardings posted as...
Did a little church history (the Renaissance) and then went to the phones, taking calls on Lutheran baptismal regeneration, Jesus’ words about the day of judgment, grieving and evangelism, hyperdispensationalism, Titus 1:6, the longer ending of Mark, regeneration in the OT, Isaiah’s...
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.

The post A Few Comments in Response to the GOCC and GMA, Plus Psalm 2 appea
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
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!
Do you or someone you know (sounds like a commercial) have a special interest in the following area: cults, the occult, new religious movement, world religions, and general apologetics? If so please touch base with me. I am working on putting together a journal titled Christianity And…A Countercult and Apologetics Journal. In conjunction
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
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.

Today we did a full 2+ hour debate with Elder Rachwaa Shayar of the GoCC on three different topics. A pretty wild ride, to be sure. Make sure to listen through to the end please.

My thanks to Vocab Malone for joining me on a Mega Edition of the Dividing Line today. Our discussion is Hebrew Israelism, and yes, we opened the phone lines. Get a deep seat in the saddle, and don’t forget: tomorrow is a two hour debate with Elder Shayar of the GoCC!

The post Vocab Malone and Hebrew
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
Covered a WIDE range of topics today. Started off expressing our deep condolences to Tony Bartolucci and his family in the death of his daughter Giana. Then we discussed the debate we will be doing tomorrow at 4pm with representatives of the Hebrew Israelite movement. Moved from there to a discussion of Jeremiah 34:16 and Romans
Managed to sneak in a third Dividing Line this week (since I have no idea what the next few weeks will bring, for, uh, medical reasons). Yup, talked a bit more about fairness, consistency, etc., and then moved on to a bit more on textual criticism, traditionalism, and the Comma Johanneum. I don’t know when the next DL will
