Started off with the truth about 10/31/1517 (nobody at the time had any idea anything important had happened), which earned me the name “Dr. Downer” from Jeff Durbin last night at church. Then we talked about the recent Synod in Rome and the truly massive implications this has for Roman claims of authority, etc. Then we addressed this article from Jared Longshore, posted on Reformation Day, of all days, diving into Hebrews 7 and 8 especially, dealing with this key text in the debate over Calvin’s doctrine of paedobaptism. I thought we would only go 90 minutes, but we actually went past two hours by a bit!

That was what we wanted to do all along, but obviously things are developing at Twitter and so we had to use Facebook (which drove me nuts). But, for as long as we can, we will use Twitter for our live streaming.Today we announced some upcoming debates, specifically a series of debates in February that should have something for everyone! I then went over an odd, out-of-place diatribe against “Biblicism” found in Matthew Barrett’s new book. If the rest of the 900 page monster is of similar nature, to use Luther’s language, the book will be a “right strawy epistle.” We worked through the entire section asking the important questions and truly wondering what the answers will be. Then I responded to Steve Camp’s recent Twitter claim that all PTs (postmillennial theonomists) “mistranslate” Matthew 28:19-20. Ninety minutes today!

Decided to do a quick DL short today in light of the wild-eyed demagoguery we were abused with yesterday by the Regime, and the continued insanity at SCOTUS today. How can intelligent people not only believe, but embrace and promote obvious lies? The Bible tells us it happens, and why.
