Episode 421: I walk through Romans 1.18ff in order to demonstrate the offended conscience and how fallen humans in rebellion do not get better but double down on their sin. Following Budzisewski in The Revenge of Conscience, I continue to give examples and explain the function of guilt, guilty feelings, and guilty knowledge at an individual level at at a societal level, even impacting the zeitgeist.
Episode 420: God has built into every human a mechanism whereby behavior is deemed moral or immoral. Such moral judgment, first, is rooted in natural law, i.e., what we cannot not know since it is, at some level, known by everyone, and second, functions as a moral common sense at both a societal level as well as a personal level. Following J. Budzisewski in his book The Revenge of Conscience, I breakdown what guilt, guilty feelings, and guilty knowledge looks like and begin to give examples.
Episode 419: The epic conclusion of my takedown of Universalism wherein I demonstrate that Universalism is really a philosophy in search of a biblical text. Its reading of Scripture is informed not only with a faulty hermeneutic (Scripture read through the lens of philosophy), but it’s very view of Scripture is itself erroneous. Finally, what we should really hope for with eternal destinies.
Episode 418: I continue my takedown of Universalism by walking through the proof-texts offered in favor of the doctrine & demonstrating exegetically why their conclusions are unsubstantiated. Romans 11.32; 1 Corinthians 15.22, 28; Philippians 2.10-11; 2 Corinthians 5.19; Colossians 1.20; & Ephesians 1.10 are all examined within their context. Close reading of each of these texts in their given context eliminates the confusion and even contradiction that universalism introduces.
Episode 417: What in the world is Universalism and why would anyone be opposed to it? I breakdown what Universalism before tackling it from a biblical perspective. I approach first on a macro scale demonstrating why Universalism is inconsistent with the Scriptures as a whole. Then, I begin dealing with Universalist proof-texts: Acts 3.21 & Romans 5.18-19. More to come…
Episode 416: Recently, an article was published concerning “How We Got the Bible.” Having done some research on the subject, I decided to respond to the claims being made in that article. I start out with a run through 2 Timothy 3.16 for orientation. Then, I tackle the articles assertions paragraph. As will become evident, many assertions are made with no basis in reality, history, or, most importantly, Scripture.
Since I reference it, here is the bibliographic information on Beckwith’s book:
Beckwith, Roger. The Old Testament Canon of the New Testament Church. Grand Rapids, MI: Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co., 1985.
Episode 415: Everybody’s favorite progressive theologian has written an article (see below) detailing how to read the Bible so that those practicing homosexual behavior are to be welcomed as faithful Christians. This reminded me of Beth Moore “conversion” a few years back (also see below). In this episode, I explore Brueggemann’s new hermeneutic and demonstrate how it is suspect at best. Also with comparisons to Beth Moore!
Episode 414: Student loan debt “forgiveness,” so-called, has become a point of contention among Christians. There are even those who want to say that Christians who do not endorse and support student loan debt “forgiveness” “haven’t a clue what following Jesus is about.” I take this view to task and offer an overall critique of student loan debt “forgiveness” as proposed and how it differs fundamentally from the gospel. Full transcript available here.
Episode 413: I take the recent statement, or lack thereof, of a California state congressman to task. His contention is that Jesus never said anything about homosexuality; I thoroughly refute his erroneous assertion. Then, we expose how the mask has come off and demonstrate from the comments of a confused young man that those who espouse woke ideology have bought into a demonic doctrine.
