Great Sermon! Oddly enough, after James graciously answers each question with logic and wisdom, they move on. This is the way of liberalism. Accuse and make false claims, but when logic is used, nope donāt wanna respond.
Great Sermon! I was so surprised to see that this happened that I HAD to listen to this. My favorite modern day theologian talking to the lead singer of one of my all-time favorite bands; it was a must listen! Now I need to watch this DL on YouTube. Skillet is an awesome band, and I've been blessed to see them live in concert three times in my life, the last time was last fall in Grand Rapids. Thankfully I went because now I'm not even sure when there will be another opportunity to see them again. The first time I saw them live was back in 2008 and I had the opportunity to talk to the band but I didn't (I regret that).
I could go on and on, but I want to thank you Dr. White for doing this and encourage you to have John on again soon. Another great hard rock Christian band to check out while you're climbing the mountains on your bicycle is Disciple. Kevin Young is the lead singer and he's an awesome guy committed to the Lord as well.
But seriously, bring John Cooper back on again, and if possible, have the whole band come on. Jen Ledger (drums) is an amazing drummer and it's awesome watching her pound on the drums on stage. Something happened to her at the concert that I went to last fall, but she went back to drumming within a few minutes.
Anyways, this was great! Please do it again
Great Sermon! Dr White did a good job of answering Adrian Rogers and pointing out he is describing an unbiblical God... The biblical God is not weak and unknowing . He is omniscient and has no reason to die for everyone on the planet when he knows that sort of atonement would not be effectual. Iām suppose to believe Christ died for everyone as an offer when Romans 9:16 particularly says point blank to the contrary and Romans 9 is totally clear God is Totally Sovereign and free from manās will and John 6:29 says faith is a work of God and John 3:8 says the Spirit blows where He desires ...The Arminian God is not Totally Sovereign but the Biblical God is because John 6:37-40 is true
Great Sermon! Thank you!
What I understood from your debate with Dr Brown
Dr. Brown - God is Totally Sovereign but not free of manās will (oxymoron to me)
Dr White- God is Totally Sovereign free of manās will
I think free will was what the serpent was selling in the Garden of Eden and became inherent in natural manās nature... I think God gave them the delusion they were seeking
Great Sermon! Very well done!!! ...keeping to the biblical text
Question about my understanding of Romans 9:11 and in conjunction with Romans 9:21,22
If Godās choosing Jacob and Esau was unconditional, then his making vessels of mercy and those fitted out for destruction in 9:21,22 ... must be unconditional to be consistent in the text. God is making both vessels out of the same lump. The verb in the verse is make vessels of mercy and (make) vessels to dishonor
Learning Hebrew/Greek I fully agree with what James said regarding learning English (or your native language) grammar before learning Hebrew / Greek.
When I started learning Hebrew I ended up having to learn English grammar. Because I was learning online so there were no deadlines and I wasn't trying to keep up with a class it wasn't really and issue. However it was a bit frustrating because I wasn't expecting to have to do that.
And yes, it is worth while. I didn't end up learning much vocabulary, because I don't want to read it, however I have have a familiarity with both languages now so that when a pastor mentions somethings about that language I have a better understanding of what they are talking about and if needed I can always check it up.
The gospel of Adrian Rogers examined Both part 1 and 2 are worth hearing today. This is what is wrong with American Christianity, i.e. PC teaching and traditions of men vs. Biblical examination and authority. This hermeneutical error of the popular Dr. Rogers demonstrated makes room for the heresy of Universalism and a multitude of errors that are based on humanist philosophy of equality and a false love that is world pleasing. Still relevant! The Bible is not politically correct and contrary to human philosophy but men love the darkness more than the light of the truth.
Adrian Rogers Against Calvinism Pt 2 The entire program today was a review of a number of comments that Adrian Rogers made against Calvinism. Many key passages of Scripture are looked at and it is clearly shown how inconsistent Adrian is when he deals with Calvinism, even though he is consistent in other areas of hermeneutics.
Adrian Rogers Against Calvinism Pt. 1 James announces today that there will be a debate on the upcoming cruise in November against Doug Wilson on the topic of whether or not Roman Catholics are our brothers and sisters in Christ due to their baptism. Then James addresses where Adrian Rogers is mistaken in his use of "the world" in John chapter 3 in contrast to the clear teaching of Dr. James Renehan.
Sacrament Etymology In today's Dividing Line, James talks about the word "sacrament" and it's origin, as well as comparing it to the word "ordinance." He moves on to reviewing the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy from 1978 and then ends the program by taking a call on the definition of "ĪŗĻĻĪ¼ĪæĻ (ĪŗĻĻĪ¼ĪæĪ½) (cosmos)" from John chapter 3.
The Passion Evangelization James started out today by reading a passage out of a companion book ("A Guide to the Passion: 100 Questions About the Passion of The Christ") to Mel Gibson's movie "The Passion of the Christ" that helps explain how to use the movie to evangelize people to the Roman Catholic faith. After that, he took some calls on the Eucharist, Sola Scriptura, and the meaning of the word "world."
Gibson's Passion Movie Impression The entire show today is discussing the movie "The Passion of the Christ." James watched the movie and explains some of the theological concerns that he has with the film and then takes calls on the subject. One caller argued that there is no reason for Christians to be scandalized by the Roman Catholic elements in the movie.
