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

ATM Preacher, the Christian Shema, and Open Phones

Written by

Started off looking at a “converted” ATM that is now being used to “preach” in a church in Germany, leading to some discussion of egalitarianism and related concepts. Then we commented a bit on the Christian/Muslim debate from last evening, leading to a discussion of 1...

Told the story of my voting experience today and talked a little bit about worldview implications at the start, and then turned to a Jemar Tisby series of statements attempting to parallel racial justice issues with the Pharisees and Jesus’ condemnation in Matthew 23.  Then we moved to...

James’ Reformation Day Ramble (And Show and Tell)

Written by

So I guess I didn’t have a real agenda today because I basically just wandered around and rambled a lot. Eventually I pulled up Photos on my Mac and showed pictures from Germany (it was, after all, Reformation Day!), and somehow I then jumped to my Israel pictures and then jumped back to...

Started off looking at different kinds of evidence for Reformed theology, moving into a review of a full article posted by Catholic Answers against “Calvinism.” Then moved into the recent exchange between myself and Thabiti Anyabwile regarding his false accusation that myself and others...

Started off briefly reminding folks that A&O is a ministry that depends on individuals for our continued support. Also mentioned that we have a travel fund that allows me to get to all the places I go and minister to many who would not be able to bring me in otherwise. Then we looked at an...

Looked at Jared C. Wilson’s comments about Galatians 2 and the subject of race, as well as Duke Kwon’s citation of the same text, by looking carefully at Galatians 2 itself in its context. The social justice attempt to read the NT as a social justice document is indeed troubling,...

Started off with a rebuttal of the misrepresentation published by Dr. Eric Mason in his new book (endorsed by many Reformed leaders) regarding yours truly and the May 11th meme I posted that insists that there is no room for “black spaces” or “white spaces” at the...

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

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
