Islam, Mormonism, and the Trinity, on Today's DL
12/29/2009 - James WhiteAs I promised, I began with a discussion of the issues relating to the recent attempted murder of civilians by a Muslim soldier of Allah. Then we had a fairly lengthy call on witnessing to Mormons, and a call on the procession of the Holy Spirit in the Trinity. Here's the program.
An Enjoyable DL
12/24/2009 - James WhiteGreat calls on the program today, followed by an examination of some comments in the Hitchens/D'Souza/Prager debate from 2008. Here's the program
Don't Forget: Early DL Today!
12/24/2009 - James WhiteWe will be doing the DL live today at 2pm MST, 4pm EST, and 3:13am PST (just kidding for you confused folks in California). Join us then!
The Kindle, and Many Calls, on the DL
12/22/2009 - James WhiteI started off with a brief discussion of how I've found the Amazon Kindle to be a great asset in my studies (and how you might as well), and then went to the phones, which filled up pretty quickly. Then, once I cleared them all, I responded to this article from WorldNet Daily on the Manhattan Declaration. Here's the program.
The Manhattan Declaration: Review of an Interview with J. Ligon Duncan
12/18/2009 - James WhiteWe started half an hour early yesterday on the DL so that I could play the majority of the comments made by J. Ligon Duncan in defense of his signing of the MD. We also read through some material by Dr. Nielsen who likewise signed. Hopefully we found a solid ground upon which to speak to the issue without losing our balance and throwing such brothers as Dr. Duncan or Dr. Mohler under the bus. Took a few calls toward the end of the program as well. Here's the program.
A 90 Minute DL Today!
12/17/2009 - James WhiteWe will be starting the DL half an hour early today (pre-feed at 3pm MST, 5pm EST, program at 3:30) so I can cover the entirety of the interview just recently posted with Dr. J. Ligon Duncan on why he signed the Manhattan Declaration. I want to play as much of the interview as I can, and interact with it, hopefully to the edification of a wide variety of fellow believers. I seek to plead for a proper balance in the examination of this vital topic. While I do not believe the document, as written, should be signed by anyone who holds firmly to the centrality of the Gospel as the sole means by which we can change the hearts and minds of men and women, I likewise do not believe it is at all proper to accuse men like J. Ligon Duncan or Albert Mohler of being "ashamed of the Gospel" or otherwise seeking to subvert the gospel message. I think Dr. Duncan gave a clear explanation of why he signed it, and I will continue to disagree, but hopefully by allowing him full expression of his position (which also came about because the interviewer, Pastor Kevin Boling, did such a good job) we will be able to further delineate the issues, suppress some of the less useful criticisms coming from both sides, and really identify the central issues that should be of concern. I hope you will listen in!
The Swiss Minaret Ban, Religious Freedom, and Calls on Today's DL
12/15/2009 - James WhiteStarted off with a discussion of religious freedom and Islam in light of the Swiss minaret ban, then started taking calls on Darwinism, Mormonism, and Reformed theology. The calls made for a quick hour to be sure! Here's the program.
Yesterday on the Dividing Line
12/03/2009 - James White
Remember, there's no DL today, as I am sitting at Gate A25 in Phoenix waiting for my flight to St. Louis. Yesterday I had to use the dreaded "John Denver Christmas Music" threat to get the calls going, but they came in, and we covered a wide variety of good topics. Here's the program.
Today on the DL: An Unscheduled Discussion with Sadiq Abdul Malik
12/01/2009 - James White
Took a total of three phone calls today, however, the first and last sort of got squished to the ends of the program to make room for a very lengthy discussion with a Muslim caller, Sadiq Abdul Malik from New York. A very interesting hour, to be sure. Here's the program.
