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

Alpha & Omega Ministries - Apologetic Report

Started off expressing thanks for the recently discovered letter President Ronald Reagan sent to his father-in-law shortly before his father-in-law’s death in which Reagan gave a clear call to faith in Jesus as the only way of salvation. Then I moved to interact with and respond to some of...

Yes, I know, I said open phones, but I forgot to address the developments in China yesterday even though it was the first thing on my list. And then I ran across Union Theological Seminary’s invitation to apostasy, and I really needed to work through that as well.  Read a little bit from...

A Response to Dr. Raymond Chang

Written by

Raymond Chang has written a thread in social media in response to our Statement that is helpful—in the sense of illustrating how worldview presuppositions impact reading and communication.

The thread begins with the intended conclusion, that which Dr. Chang is wanting to communicate to his...

Jemar Tisby, head of the blog formerly known as RAAN, has suggested, in an article run on the Religion News Service (RNS) site, that those of us involved in writing the Statement on Social Justice and the Gospel should be “avoided.” Those are his words. I like quotes, so here we go:

Wanted to get a second program in this week as I leave tomorrow for ministry in Florida (including the debate on homosexuality).  Was going to open the phones but instead ended up responding to two articles in rebuttal to the Statement, first from Union Theological Seminary, the second from a...

Given that The Statement on Social Justice and the Gospel was released today, I dedicated the program to the topic, the background of the statement, etc.  I also took time to provide some biblical reasoning from Revelation 5 and Ephesians 2, and then made application to social media statements...

Talked a bit about the odd interaction Mormonism is having with the LGBTQ movement, and then covered some of the crack-down on religions (both Christianity and Islam) in China.  Then I played a few minutes from a fellow named “Polight” wherein he gets all confused about the Virgin...

Started off with a lengthy discussion of the great text in Romans 15:13, then moved on to 1 Timothy 4:1-3 in light of the current situation in Rome.  Then looked very closely at the meaning of ἀπαράβατον at Hebrews 7:23-24 in light of a...

The bias with which certain people “hear” what is said by others is sometimes, well, glaring. So yesterday I talked about how a person would be “crushed” in a debate if they denied a particular theological statement. Some people just heard “crushed” and, in...

Looked at Bill Mounce’s article on “whoever” in John 3:16 (a second article, more recent than one I’ve addressed before), then moved on to the sad spectacle of Christians gleefully piling on TMS/TMU, including one graduate going after JM for daring to address the...

Started off with some important observations of the current scandal in the Roman Catholic Church (it IS about homosexuality) and then moved on to look at a comment from Dr. Anthony Bradley, finishing with a lengthy discussion of ethnicity in the church (it is being discussed a lot these days!) in...

A few weeks ago, a new crop of seminary students began the grueling month-long experience of Summer Greek. And, like all seminary students before them, they will begin to ask the question of why studying these ancient languages even matters. After all, a few years after graduation all will be...

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

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.
