More Regarding King James, Bart Ehrman, etc.
12/30/2008 - James WhiteWe did take one call on the meaning of arsenokoites, but other than that we focused back on The Covenanter's Call radio program and its "review" of The King James Only Controversy. Here's the program.
Homosexuality, Rick Warren, and the Pope!

More on the King James Issue on the DL
12/18/2008 - James White
Pressed forward with our review and response to the King James Only presentation we began on Tuesday, this time getting into the background of the Textus Receptus and the basic circularity of the arguments used in this particular radio program. Also took two useful calls as well. Here's the program.
Today on The Dividing Line: King James Onlyism
12/16/2008 - James WhiteToday I began responding to some proponents of King James Onlyism who did a review/rebuttal of my book on the radio last week. As I had noted, I invited them to participate, but so far, I haven't gotten a lot of response to my invitations. In any case, it has been a while since addressing some of these issues, so I get the feeling for some of our newer listeners this might be "new material." In any case, we only got about 12 minutes into their presentation before taking a phone call on Codex Sinaiticus that took up the rest of our time. We will continue the review/response on Thursday. Here's the program.
Today on the Dividing Line: TurretinFan
12/11/2008 - James White
Today I was joined by one of our Team Apologian bloggers, TurretinFan, to discuss the issue of the atonement and those who attempt to expand the ranks of those who deny the intentionality of the Trinity in accomplishing a perfect atonement (aka, "limited atonement"). Here's the program.
A Caller-Driven Dividing Line!
12/09/2008 - James WhiteA very enjoyable program today. I started out talking about the upcoming Newsweek hit-piece, and then we took calls the rest of the hour. The first caller and I had a great discussion about the doctrines of grace, proving that it can be done without the rancor some always bring to the discussion! I include the video of that call below. Here's the program.
Today on the Dividing Line: More on the John 3:16 Conference
12/02/2008 - James WhiteI continued my review of The John 3:16 Conference on the program today, playing clips from Paige Patterson, David Allen, etc. I play a clip from Paige Patterson where he says that you cannot prove from Scripture that all men are born guilty. I note the following comments from Dr. Boyce:
It follows from the facts in these last two statements, that a corrupt nature makes a condition as truly sinful, and guilty, and liable to punishment, as actual transgressions. Consequently, at the very moment of birth, the presence and possession of such a nature shows that even the infant sons of Adam are born under all the penalties which befell their ancestor in the day of his sin. Actual transgression subsequently adds new guilt to guilt already existing, but does not substitute a state of guilt for one of innocence. (James Boyce, Abstract of Systematic Theology, p. 250.I addressed the new article posted by David Allen on Peter Lumpkin's blog at the end of the program. Here's that portion:
