Just had to make note of the monumental Alabama Supreme Court decision and the issue of “By What Standard” that simply cannot be avoided. Then we looked at some further issues I had forgotten to get to on the last program about claims Trent Horn made and how all of this is so vitally relevant to the direction Roman Catholic apologetics is heading. Important stuff! The post Road Trip Morning Dividing Line appeared first on Alpha and Omega Ministries ..read more

John Owen’s Usage of Thomas Aquinas, Part 3
Alpha and Omega Ministries Blog
by Chris Whisonant
2d ago
This is a follow up to Part 1 and Part 2 in this blog series where I will go through the works of John Owen detailing where he has mentioned Thomas Aquinas. I hope that this series is helpful. In this third part, I would like to look at two different types of usage. First will be a couple of disagreements in which Thomas is mentioned alone, not in a list of others. Second, there are what appear to be a few points of agreement, one where Thomas is mentioned alone and another among a few others. Also note that these first three posts do not deal with Owen’s usage of Aquinas in the Hebrews volume ..read more

Live Feed Link to White/Horn Sola Scriptura Debate
Alpha and Omega Ministries Blog
by Rich Pierce
6d ago
Calvinist James White and Roman Catholic Trent Horn will debate the “formal principle” of the Reformation, sola scriptura, or Scripture Alone. From Luther on, Protestants have argued that the Bible is the only “God-breathed” revelation that can provide sufficient knowledge of God and His salvation. Roman Catholics argue that the Tradition is equally valid and important as a source. The disagreement on sources has led to a host of other disagreements. Who is right? Both speakers are the top apologists in their fields, so this debate promises to be both interesting and important. The post Live ..read more

Pre-Debate Road Trip Dividing Line from Houston

Talked a little about the “He Gets Us” thing, gave a brief report on the Allie Beth Stuckey Show from Tuesday, then dove into the Protevangelium of James and read its narrative of the birth of Christ in light of the defense of this document as containing genuine Christian tradition by Roman Catholic apologists. We then moved on to discuss The Invention of the Inspired Text by John Poirier and his actual goals in writing his book. Don’t know when the next program will be as I will be heading off to Tullahoma next week for the Why Calvinism conference, a debate, etc. Watch the app for announceme ..read more

Road Trip DL: Francis, Cernovich, then Back to Carl Trueman and Development of Doctrinal Expression

Back to on-the-road status for the program today! We covered what’s going on tomorrow and in the upcoming days, then looked at a tweet from @Cernovich wherein he demonstrates he has never done serious reading in the topic, and then finished up the hour looking at a key section from Carl Trueman’s presentation (which we began reviewing over the past few weeks).

John Owen’s Usage of Thomas Aquinas, Part 2

1w ago
This is a follow up to Part 1 in this blog series where I will go through the works of John Owen detailing where he has mentioned Thomas Aquinas. I hope that this series is helpful. In this second part, I would like to look at a couple of different types of usage that we find. First will be some cases where there is an editorial footnote that mentions Thomas Aquinas. Secondly, there will be a mention of a story that Thomas wrote about. Again, note that these first two posts do not deal with Owen’s usage of Aquinas in the Hebrews volumes. I believe I will begin working through those in part 5 ..read more

John Owen’s Usage of Thomas Aquinas, Part 1
Alpha and Omega Ministries Blog
by Chris Whisonant
1w ago
Recently, Carl Trueman has stated the following: “I had a breakthrough on John Owen when I realized how often he cited Thomas Aquinas in his marginal notes in his texts. Struck me as odd.” With this in mind, I would like to begin looking through just how extensive this usage really is, since this is a topic that tends to be brought up often. As a bit of a preliminary, I have been utilizing the epub version of the books of Owen available at monergism.org along with comparing these with the Banner of Truth volumes (which yields 36 total books). This way, you can feel free to look for yourself an ..read more

Last DL in Phoenix Before Trip: Roman Catholic Arguments
Alpha and Omega Ministries Blog
by James White
1w ago
Head out on Friday (I keep saying Lord willing, and I mean that), so hopefully our next edition will be on the road, possibly on Monday. Played segments from a video from the pastor of “Zootown Church” in Missoula, Scott Klaudt where he repeated a whole string of utterly indefensible falsehoods about the Reformation, Rome, etc., and then played a brief portion of Trent Horn’s second rebuttal in his debate with Gavin Ortlund on sola scriptura, looking specifically at the common error of ignoring the diversity in Rome while focusing upon it amongst “Protestants.” If you would like to help suppor ..read more

Provisionist Palaver, Trent Horn on Argumentation, A Few Moments with Carl Trueman and Doctrinal Development
Alpha and Omega Ministries Blog

My apologies for all the coughs and sniffs, I actually feel pretty good, but the voice and sinuses—not so much. Spent time talking about God’s decree over against Provisionist palaver (look it up), then looked at some Trent Horn material in preparation for a few weeks from now, and finished up with a real quick section from the Carl Trueman presentation, this time on “doctrinal development.” The post Provisionist Palaver, Trent Horn on Argumentation, A Few Moments with Carl Trueman and Doctrinal Development appeared first on Alpha and Omega Ministries ..read more

Covered a number of topics today with a short discussion of how a small number of ne’er-do-wells can create faux controversies for not positive reason, then talked a bit about Alistair Begg’s “swing and a miss” response, and then got back to Carl Trueman’s speech on classical theology. An hour and fifteen minutes today. The post A Little Bit on Infants, a Little Bit on Alistair, the Rest with More Carl Trueman appeared first on Alpha and Omega Ministries ..read more
