The net has been an inferno of late with everyone choosing sides, circling wagons, loading guns, and opening fire, all, it seems to me, to no avail. I basically spent today exhorting folks to step back, think, breathe, maybe even think about relaxing a bit and listening to viewpoints other than your own. I am sure that advice will be ignored by many, but, you can try! Had some fun along the way, including starting off playing a portion of a new rendition of the 2nd Psalm in Germany sung by Tobias Riemenschneider which you can listen to here.

It’s Just a Coincidence Illustrated, Back to Middle Knowledge with WLCBy James White — 2 years ago
Started off with a few minutes about the facts regarding the Kamala Cookies (forced vaccine mandates) and the reality that billions of dollars will buy you tons of lies.

The Decline of Mormonism, John 17:5 and a Lot of Replies to CriticsBy James White — 1 year ago
James White, April 27, 2022April 27, 2022, Church Fathers, Church History, Exegesis, Mormonism, Offense, Personal, Reformed Baptist Issues, Road Trip, Roman Catholicism, Simply Silly, The Dividing Line, Theology Matters, Thomism Since I am in Cedar City, Utah, I started off the program with a discussion of the decline of Mormonism, its reasons, and how we need to be praying to be used of God to bring light to the darkness. Then I had to dive into some of the amazing things being claimed, asserted, and just plain lied about regarding the rise of this new form of “Reformed Thomistic Scholasticism” in our day. Responded to Richard Barcellos’ accusation that when we submit scholastic terminology and frameworks to biblical analysis and standards we are engaging in “self-poping popery.” Yes, that’s a direct quote. Also went back to John 17:5 to see if τῇ δόξῃ ᾗ εἶχον still means “the glory which I had with you” or whether somehow it had become “the glory predestined to be given to my human nature.” I also promised to link to Augustine’s interpretation of John 17:5. See here. In opposition, see Calvin, A.T. Robertson, Matthew Henry, and many others.

Started off with a personal response to Andy Stanley on his apologizing for Christians seeking to apply “Christian rules” to non-Christians, and then looked a bit at Reuben Swanson’s books on the text of the NT (in reference to Thomas Ross’ use thereof), finishing with a read-through of Brett Mahlen’s chapter on why he adopted TR Onlyism.
