Politics from the pulpit Dear Dr. White,
I have enjoyed listening to your podcasts. You are an engaging and articulate speaker, and your messages are enlightening.
I am (like many people) tired of the political divide happening in the US, and feel like it is even worse when it finds its way into the churches (my wife was a public teacher in Wisconsin in 2011 when teachers unions were under fire). We were Republicans and church goers until we were on the receiving end of Evangelical righteousness. Since then I have come to see how politics dilute the message of God, and alienates those who may disagree with the message if the day.
What's going to happen? I am not overly supersized that Dr. White did a DL of the SBC's new President, actually I would be surprised if he didn't. I hope 'The Squirrel' will be on the DL and give an update. I know that the curse of Ham was taught in the past in some churches, but I've never heard a sermon by a pastor that endorsed the curse of Ham.
Great Debate This debate was something else, Dr. Stravinskas simply got owned, there's no two ways about it, he's a smart man no doubt, but he didn't really present a good case for purgatory, but this debate went far more than purgatory, it went to scripture alone, church government, Luther, Calvin, etc. and various popes, Augustine, etc.
The nature of God, the anthropology of man, and the very gospel itself must be considered in the topic of purgatory.
Great Sermon! churches of the Charismatic Movement today claim that God is still speaking today through utterances of the saints, and God is still bringing Divine revelations today in dreams, and in visions, and in angel visitations and in tongues, These are all heresies. God said in Rev 22:18 that He will not any more give Divine messages. The Bible is complete, and God will not add to it, nor take away from it. The Bible gives us a complete image of God, and so we may not add to this image of God, nor may we take away from it. God gave us the Bible to be The Authority that we must honor and obey.ď»ż
Great Sermon! D.A Waite did not answer not even one question in this entire debate. He claims over and over the King James bible is the ONLY bible but is never able to prove it, where by the way the Septuigant does not match the KJV. Then goes on to repeatedly saying "The Nestle-Aland 26,27, Vatucanus, Sinaticus, Westcott-Hort, yaddda yadda are heretical, but was nowhere proven, addressed or even answered, he even admitted "I guess it's supposion on my part..." that means he doesn't know. Then goes on to say that he gets his words from other sources.... so you don't even do your own research??!!? Dr. Waite you and your wife sound like nice folks and all but you have no idea what you believe and why. I would have kept asking him the questions that were asked until he answered them. Then he went off on a tangent about readability.. no one asked! Not only was Waite refuted, he was destroyed,and also judged unrighteously which is a violation of John 7:24.
Superb Radio Program This was done at PS on the air, James White was in the studio and Riplinger joined by calling in (I think she did 3 episodes on the show before this one), and the discussion was eye opening to the deceptiveness, the lies, the misrepresentations, etc. of G.A. Riplinger.
The most flabbergasting part is when when Riplinger says, "The Lord calls it the NASV" she's basically saying that she heard God calls the NASB the NASV.
(After she says the lexicons are not pure) she says, "If you look at the works of men, without the working of the Holy Spirit it is not perfect." wouldn't that mean we shouldn't listen to Gail Riplinger?
And when she says we shouldn't go back to the Greek, now I think Tyndale, Erasmus, and the KJV translators, would find that to be a ludicrous idea. But hey, when you have your name as G.A. Riplinger (as she said it stood for God and Riplinger) who are we to judge?
Great Sermon! To be honest brother. You sound ignorant of the things you talk about. I support you work, but like my other â€śwhiteâ€ť brothers in Christ is that you are blind to the sins of our nation. This â€śFarher of our fathersâ€ť romancing of American history is disheartening
Good Radio Free Geneva That dear John Piper "song" was as eloquent as a dying crow. That "Though you slay me" is a truly beautiful song, and the John Piper quote in it is convicting, it is walking by faith, which is hard to do, but as Christians we are commanded to walk by faith.
Hmm I agree with Francesco, Professor Flowers was very distracted, I don't think Professor Flowers knew much about Calvinism even though he claims to be a former Calvinist,
I didn't see any exegesis on his part, that was unfortunate, I have never had a "Non Calvinist" explain to me how a child of wrath can even desire to love God? How can a dead man desire life? How can a child of the devil desire to be a child of God?
I don't see how a "non Calvinist" can avoid being a universalist, if Christ died for every single person, then no one would be in Hell.
Great Sermon! Thank you for qualifying your statements about literacy due to digitization. Iâ€™m sure Iâ€™m not the only one who has felt the sting of criticism aimed at my entire generation as if the statements applied to every single person. I know itâ€™s a little thing, but I just really appreciated hearing that today, that has noticed that a few of us at least are really trying to live up to a higher standard.
Open Phones. Woo-Hoo I really like when there's the "open phone" DL, the last call was very interesting, I actually was reading a review on a book by Ron Rodes, and it was a Catholic saying that Justin Martyr mentioned the Eucharist, Justin is an early Christian, therefore the Eucharist is what Christ wants us to do.
Now someone needs to ask an ultra weird question about Reformed KJVonly Black Hebrew Israelite Mormons...just to throw Dr. White off :)
Mostly good Everything was great and informative, definitely going to listen to it again and take notes, the only thing is that it got...well just plain weird, I heard, "This is a family friendly radio program" so I thought, "Hmm, wonder what he has to say that would give that disclaimer"
Well...the facts that Rich said was right, but I think Rich should've not mentioned that, so avoid the last ten minutes and it should be good.
