On Back Pack Radio Discussing Harold Camping

May 25, 2011

You already may have an overdose of discussion about Harold Camping. Last week, however, I recorded an interview with Vocab Malone for Back Pack Radio in which I discussed Harold Camping. (here’s the mp3 of the show) The episode aired May 22, 2011.


Purgatory Debate with Dan Marcum

April 27, 2011

Yesterday, Dan Marcum (Roman Catholic) and I did a short debate on purgatory. An mp3 of the debate is available. There a number of points within this debate that I would like to comment on, but I thought it would be better to go ahead and post the debate now. My main comment on the debate is that the constructive and conclusion speeches were just too short.

Today’s ISI Discussion on Formal Sufficiency

November 11, 2010

We meandered off into a few other topics related to Roman Catholicism, but the bulk of the discussion was on the formal sufficiency of Scripture (link to mp3).


Genesis and Theistic Evolution

May 17, 2010

I recently appeared as a guest on Jamin Hubner’s Provocative Microphone discussing Genesis and Theistic Evolution (link to mp3). The first portion of the podcast is a discussion between the host and me and the second half is the host’s thoughts on the topic.


Dr. James White on Evangelizing Roman Catholics (and other things)

August 28, 2009

Thanks to I recently located a discussion recorded on October 16, 2005, at the Omaha Bible Church featuring Dr. James White discussing evangelizing Roman Catholics (here’s a link to the mp3 – about 1 hour). This is one of several presentations that was given that weekend. The rest are provided below:

  • Justification by Faith Alone (link to mp3 – about 50 minutes)
  • The Biblical Truth of the Trinity (link to mp3 – about 44 minutes)
  • Earnestly Contending for the Faith Against Antinomianism (link to mp3 – about 1 hour, 11 minutes)
  • Earnestly Contending for the Faith Against Legalism (link to mp3 – about 1 hour, 18 minutes)
  • Earnestly Contending for the Faith Against Relativism (link to mp3 – about 38 minutes)

Also, while we are identify recordings Dr. White made at Omaha Bible Church, there were a couple of recordings from January 2003 as well:

  • The Heart of the Gospel (Part 1) (link to mp3 – about 1 hour)
  • The Heart of the Gospel (Part 2) (link to mp3 – about 19 minutes)

Bonus: From about the time the 2005 conference ended, an interview of Dr. James White (link to to mp3 – about 50 minutes).



Dr. James White on Justification and the Uniqueness of Christ

August 19, 2009

One of Dr. White’s speaking engagements while in Australia was to give a talk on Justification and the Uniqueness of Jesus Christ. While I am told that a YouTube video may follow, you can get the audio now at the following link (link). That site has a handy embedded player. If, however, you’d like to just download the mp3s, the links are (part 1)(part 2).

Enjoy to your edification!


Reformed Worship – Resources

May 26, 2009

One important aspect of the Reformation was the reformation of worship, a recognition that God wishes to be worshiped according to the patten that he himself has laid out in Scripture rather than according to the imaginations of men. I was pleased to find a web site that is promoting this worship of God and providing a range of resources for metrical Psalm-singing. Already there are number of mp3s that can be listened to, and apparently there is much more to come. (link)

One of my favorites.

To the glory of our Great God and King!

Who is to Blame for Svendsen’s Book?

October 13, 2008

In response to this post (link) promoting a freely-downloadable mp3 related to Eric Svendsen’s book, “Upon this Slippery Rock: Countering Roman Catholic Claims to Authority,” Mr. Bellisario provided the following commentary, which I intersperse with my comments:

MB: “Wow. If Sola Scriptura is so simple and easy to get, then why do all of these simple-simons need Svendsen’s book to explain it all?

I answer: As you can see from the title of the book, the reason is the false claims of the advocates of Catholicism. Furthermore, of course, while Sola Scriptura is simple and easy to get (“the Bible is the only infallible rule of faith that we have”) sometimes the devious and even Jesuitical objections to it are not simple and easy to get, and can be confusing for some people.

MB: “It’s not Sola Scriptura, its Sola Svendsen.

I answer: This is just silly. Mr. Bellisario should know better than to make this kind of claim. Reformation Christianity does not deny the value of teachers, it just doesn’t elevate them to the level of God’s own Word: Scripture. Svendsen never makes himself out to be an infallible rule of faith – a fact that should be as simple and easy to get as Sola Scriptura itself.

MB: “Scripture isn’t plain enough for all of you to understand. You need Svendsen to rescue your faith! Wow this is too good to be true.

I answer: This criticism seems to be founded on the same false premise as the one above, in which Sola Scriptura leaves no place for teachers. It’s also based on a further straw man, which is the idea that the position of Sola Scriptura means that ALL doctrines of Scripture are alike plain. Of course, the truth is different from the straw men. There is a role for teachers in the church, and one of their roles is to help explain doctrines – including the less clear doctrines. Furthermore, of course, even though Sola Scriptura is a very simple concept, the issues become complicated by heretical objections from a variety of sources, principally those who bow the knee to the Roman Pontiff (one knee only, of course, as explained in Steve’s post here)

MB: “I just love the advertisement for his book. All we need now is Billy Maze to sell it on lat night TV. Call now and you’ll receive Svendsen’s set of chopping knives for cutting out Rome’s heresy!

I answer: This scoffing does tend to serve as a thing that speaks for itself as to the attitude of the critic. No further comment, therefore, is needed.
