As long as the Pope isn't calling for capital punishment for protestants who oppose the mass, or who actually preach from the Bible, or who don't sprinkle babies, or who... (shudder) translate the Bible from Latin to English.
Rome has had a long and illustrious history of forcing capital punishment on folks like that.
Great Sermon! The people doing this so-called "data mining" of the Scriptures is one of the most ridiculous things I've ever heard of. These goofballs don't even consider the context of what's being spoken about for these verses. It always breaks my heart when people mangle the Scriptures by taking out what they want via ridiculous things like this, to serve their goofy anti-theistic hatred.
Keep up the good work Dr. White!
Good message Never heard of Jahaziel but his message was utterly ridiculous. But I guess that I as a believe lack "integrity" according to him. Dr. White does a great job dismantling this rapper's comments.
Bruce Jenner's twisted thoughts How do we respond to this as Christians? It's really simple, I think. Bruce Jenner has likely spent thousands of dollars pumping himself with hormones, and being made to look like a woman with the help of the surgeon's hand. While wanting to be born again as a woman, the irony is that he simply needs to meet the truth of the Gospel, and be born again spiritually, and all of his twisted thoughts about himself will be straightened out by the truth of God. It really is that simple. Can we not pray for his soul, brothers? Can we not also defend God's honor and speak the truth in love, that what Bruce Jenner has done is contra-God? Defend God's honor and pray for Bruce Jenner. Defend God's honor and call this act of ungodliness exactly what it is: ungodliness. We're not to stand silent and allow God's honor to be walked upon like everything is alright, because it's not alright. Pray fervently. -- Rob
Excellent Some very good material discussed here. It's a long message but covers a ton of topics, including a helpful section of "how would you respond to a certain encounter" answers regarding folks like Watchtower, etc.
James White is an excellent teacher and always beneficial to listen to.
Great resource I greatly appreciated the reading of this classic. This is a good, clear systematic theology that covers the important doctrines of the Christian faith: the nature of God, Christ, the Holy Spirit, the Bible, the sacraments, etc. It's an old book but still very practical and applicable. Highly recommended.
Critique Use caution when defining words. "Wherein" does not have a sarcastic definition in and of itself. It simply means "in what way". The people in Malachi's day weren't sarcastic. They were blind, just like today.
