"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

The Two Ages in Clear Focus

In this, the third in a teaching series on eschatology, we start with the clear words of Jesus regarding the two ages, and conclude that under scrutiny, of the three main views prevalent in our day, only one seems to remain intact. That is quite a claim, but here is why.

Elements of Reformed Worship

God cares about our worship and about how we worship. He does not receive all worship. Some worship is corrupt and greatly displeases Him. So what kind of worship does in fact please Him? How can we know for sure?

Theological Triage - Maintaining Unity

Today I had the privilege of guest hosting another Dividing Line broadcast and brought what I believe to be an important teaching on first order and second order doctrines. As the quote attributed to Augustine says, “In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; and in all things, charity.” - John Samson

We experienced some audio difficulties during the first two minutes of the show but after that there were no further sound issues.

Theological Triage

Test: Ephesians 4:4-6

Medical Triage comes into play in the hospital Emergency Room as someone needs to work out who has priority in gaining medical attention. In the same way, some doctrines in the Bible are more important than others, and these form the basis of our unity in Christ, something we are called upon to maintain.

Sola Scriptura - Five Part Series by Dr. James White

Part 1: Dr. James White - "Went 135 minutes today (hence the “uber-mega” designation) covering two primary topics: sola scriptura defined and defended against a recent attack upon it by Karlo Broussard of Catholic Answers (first 90 minutes), and then a “live” review of a new video against the deity of Christ from a Muslim perspective (link). A lot of foundational, basic teaching today that we think is very, very important for all believers!"

Part 2: Dr. James White - "We continued our series on sola scriptura today, looking at what sola scriptura is and is not. Touched on the issues raised by charismatic claims of “thus says the Lord” a bit as well. We really believe this is an important series, and hope our listeners will find it foundationally edifying."

Part 3: Dr. James White - "Three topics on the program today; for the first 15 minutes or so a quick rejoinder to Jory Micah and her 'El Shaddai means ‘one with many breasts' tweet, then about half an hour in response to Spencer Toy’s article on, 'An Open Question for Presuppositionalists.' Then we got back for the last 45 minutes to our study of sola scriptura. We are now able, in the next program, to finally start working through Karlo Broussard’s comments on Catholic Answers Live."

Part 4: Dr. James White - "Aside from a few brief comments at the start about a few current events we focused pretty much fully on the sola scriptura series, finally getting to the clip from the debate with Mitch Pacwa and listening to a number of segments from the Catholic Answers Live show with Karlo Broussard. Important information!"

Part 5: Dr. James White - "I managed to resist the temptation to do the 'politics talk' and finished up the introduction to sola scriptura today in a 90 minute program focusing upon the final sections of Karlo Broussard’s arguments on Catholic Answers Live, and then discussing two more important aspects, 'Apostolic Tradition' in the early fathers as well as the issue of the canon. Not easy material to cover, but so very important!"
