We chose to record today’s DL just in case the connection went wonky and broke up. But, it didn’t, and we managed to get about 70 minutes in today, mainly on two topics (with a brief trip report at the start). First, we discussed William Lane Craig, his views on Adam, and why this is pretty much just par for the course given the long interaction we have had with Dr. Craig’s foundational positions. Then we addressed the baptism debate, raging yet once again due to Jared Longshore’s departure from Founders due to his embracing of paedobaptism. Hopefully balanced and useful observations of the key issues in the debate, at least as the debate rages between Presbyterians and Reformed Baptists. I think that debate is very, very different than the debate with, for example, Lutherans on the same topic.

It presented a great opportunity to highlight once again not only plethora of strawmen being burned with Molinist matches on the Internet these days, but it gave us the opportunity to delve into 1 Corinthians 3 and Isaiah 43 to demonstrate again the richness that comes from biblically based theology over against philosophically based speculations. Get a deep seat, this one goes just over two hours in length! Enjoy!

Then, we review key statements made by Matthew Barrett, Todd Pruitt, and Carl Trueman on the last episode of the Mortification of Spin (where, I must say, spin was most definitely not mortified!). Finally, we worked through Dale Tuggy’s sophistic argument against the deity of Christ, exposing its many less-than-subtle category errors, insertion of unproven assumptions, etc., and then followed that up with a quick run-through of the identification of Jesus as YHWH in John 12:41, and a particular unitarian attempt to get around that problem for their false theology. Around 1:55 in length today!
