On the Last DL for Two Weeks....
10/31/2006 - James WhiteI won't be able to do any DL's while I'm away, so, the next program will be 11/14. Today I went back to the Jerry Vines sermon against Calvinism, part of a series he did, starting with liberals, then covering Calvinists, Charismatics, and those who drink (Drunk, Liberal Charismatic Calvinists, as someone suggested)---don't you love throwing Reformed theology into that list? So anyway, we did get one phone call toward the end of the program on the nature of the compatibility that exists between God's will and man's evil actions. Here's the program.
Woops! Last Thursday's DL!
10/30/2006 - James WhiteForgot to link Thursday's DL! My apologies! Started looking at Emir Caner's sermon at TRBC, along with other things! Here's the program.
On the DL...Yesterday...
10/25/2006 - James WhiteDue to some web difficulties we were unable to post the file of the DL until today. I covered the Jerry Vines sermon from First Baptist Church Woodstock. Well, more accurately, I started the process, as it was not a short sermon. Here's the program.
Today on the DL
10/12/2006 - James WhiteTook calls mainly on the Caner situation and likewise looked a little bit at the Jerry Vines sermon at First Baptist Woodstock, a sermon that will definitely give us a lengthy series of Radio Free Geneva programs. However, it looks like there is only one template out there for anti-Calvinism sermons, even repeating the same errors (like misquoting Matthew 23:37). Anyway, here is the program, and, please note, we are making changes (improvements!) to our live server, and, we are greatly improving our archives as well. This means those of you who have become accustomed to our old rotation of URLs for the DL's will need to look a little more closely at the current ones, as the format has changed. Here is today's.
Today on the DL
10/10/2006 - James WhiteHad a wonderful time with Tom Ascol on the DL today, taking calls and discussing, at first, the Caner situation, but moving beyond that fairly quickly to broader issues of the gospel and the like. Good calls, a hopefully very useful program. Here it is.
Today on the Dividing Line
10/06/2006 - James WhiteStarted out the program today with a little history and a tribute to Jerald and Sandra Tanner. Felt it was important to discuss weighty, eternal things before being dragged down into the mire of the silliness that has become trying to deal with the situation at Liberty. But, starting about twenty or twenty five minutes in, I recounted what has happened over the past few months, and most specifically, the past few days, wherein the agreement reached between the two sides over the past few months was thrown out the window unilaterally, the Caners were given first and last word, etc. As of this writing, we still have heard absolutely nothing from the Caners. We have tried making phone calls. Finally we got hold of Ergun Caner's chief of staff. He indicated that Ergun is on a flight right now and hence cannot be contacted, but he promised, sincerely, to get hold of him the moment he touches down. And so we wait for a little while. Here's the program.
Changing the DL Till Tomorrow Morning
10/05/2006 - James WhiteQuick programming note. Had a great time helping Chris Arnzen out on Iron Sharpens Iron with the discussion between Tom Wells and Richard Barcellos on NCT vs. CT, but along with some really stressful issues related to next week I have fallen way behind in working on finishing the last four chapters of Pulpit Crimes. I don't want to do the program just for the sake of doing the program, so we will move this afternoon's program to the morning slot tomorrow, that is, 2pm EDT, 11am PDT Friday morning. Hopefully things will be a little less rushed at that point.
Special Program Today
10/05/2006 - James WhiteWhoa, change of plans. Tom Wells has agreed to join Chris Arnzen and Richard Barcellos to discuss New Covenant Theology vs. Covenant Theology on Iron Sharpens Iron today at 3pm EDT, and we will be providing our facilities to assist, so you can call 877-753-3341 and listen to the program as well at the regular DL URL.
Today on the DL...
10/03/2006 - James WhiteStarted off with a few brief comments on the "ct/Michael Dries" discussion. A full melt-down is underway with this person, who now says she (yes, she) only the Dries name as a cover on the Puritan Board. In any case, took calls today on Islam and a more in-depth call on the topic of John 1:1 and Jehovah's Witnesses. Here's the program (well, that will be the link when we get it working---right now it isn't working properly. Keep trying---it will work eventually!)
