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
συνευδοκέω is a Greek term that means “to agree with, give approval to.” It is found in the final verse of Romans 1 where Paul describes the final state of human sin, one in which mankind, knowing the just...
Started out with a brief study on Matthew 28:19-20 and the incredible words of Jesus, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.” Do we really believe that? It matters. Then I looked at the plague of immaturity in Western culture, tying together three...
A little over 90 minutes today looking at Beth Moore’s article released over the weekend first, then moving on to Tim Staples sounding very much like our synergistic friends in his argumentation. Then we looked at the cooperation of some (to me) local Reformed Baptists with Steven...
Certain things stick with you about your first visit to Israel. For me, this view out across the Sea of Galilee from Capernaum is important. I had just led a study on John 6, fittingly, and took a few moments to snap some pictures to remember. This is the very beach, 2000 years...
As Western culture closes down upon the freedoms of believers to speak in the public square we will need wisdom from above like never before. I cannot help but to think upon James’ words (3:17) frequently. Please forgive the paraphrase—there is nothing wrong with...
Spent a good bit of time today looking at the Nashville Statement in light of the Revoice/PCA/Greg Johnson situation last week. What is ahead for the PCA? For all of us? Also looked at some comments from Dr. Jamin Hubner on the same section of the Nashville Statement. Looked at some...
We dealt with the accusations of Dr. Dan DeWitt, Research Fellow of the ERLC, calling for him to substantiate, or withdraw, his statements. Then we looked at how we are all influenced by the history that came before us, whether we see it or not. Had a little fun with Dr. Mohler and...
Went a little over 90 minutes today on my Saturday morning tweet that broke the Internet. Had to deal with a whole lot of issues that came to light as a result. Leave it to me to combine ethnicity and abortion in a single tweet! But it was important, and remains important, after all the...
“The arrival of the lawless one will be by Satan’s working with all kinds of miracles and signs and false wonders, and with every kind of evil deception directed against those who are perishing, because they found no place in their hearts for the truth so as to be saved. Consequently...
Before we fired up the RFG theme today I addressed the open letter that has been sent to Beth Moore about her views of homosexuality. I did so because it seems others (noted on the program) seem to be attempting to run interference for her so as to keep her from having to take a stand on one...
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
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!
