We start tonight’s programme with brief comments on John MacArthur on the Ben Shapiro show and on the Lauren Daigle controversy over homosexuality. Then we return to ask what is wrong with the modern debate, or lack of debate, over Bible translations? Should we think that 2% of the Greek New Testament text isn’t really that important as many in the modern church now claim? Do the proponents of the Critical Text have a settled or a fluid, moving canon? What is the final authority in such a system, taken to its logical conclusion?
On tonight’s programme we look at the various views which exist today about Bible versions and the text, or canon, of scripture. How does these views differ from the views of the Reformers? How reliable are Codex Vaticanus and Codex Sinaiticus? What doctrines are affected by modern forms of textual criticism? How do modern forms of textual criticism vary from the textual criticism used by the Reformers? We also look at parts of the classic John Ankerberg show from the mid-1990s where these view were discussed.
Should we believe modern claims of trips to heaven? How should we approach someone who claims to be having these experiences, or believes that they are possible today? On tonight’s programme we respond to a video called ‘Woman Comes Back to Life with a Message’ released by The 700 Club on CBN.
On tonight’s programme we respond to the video Lisa Gungor did with Buzzfeed called ‘How I Lost Faith In The Mega Church’. What can be learned from her experience? How should we respond to suffering in the world from a Biblical point of view?
On tonight’s programme we respond to Todd Friel on the KJV and the text of scripture. What does the Westminster Confession of Faith teach on the text of scripture in chapter 1:8? Should we only use the KJV? What is wrong with King James Onlyism?
