Happy Reformation Day everybody!

In this edition of the show, we are actually a Part II of a conversation I had with Rob Johnson of the Apologetics105 blog and podcast. We discuss everything from our eerily similar conversions, to atheistic fundamentalist David McAfee, but the main topics for the show are Molinism, Arminianism and Calvinism.

Violence Worthy of Worship: How Divine Wrath Prevents Personal Vengeance

ABSTRACT: In this paper I explore Psalm 137 (one of the so called Imprecatory Psalms) and how it is to be understood and applied within the Christian canon and applied to the Christian church despite its violent imagery.

Atheistically Speaking - A Mulligan

 In this episode, I circle back to some of the things that I discussed with Thomas Smith on his podcast Atheistically Speaking. I wasn't entirely happy with some of my responses so I wanted to flesh them out a little more here. I discuss everything from the literary master of the Bible to the Bible's polemical use of the Enuma Elish.

I also discuss my views on the ever controversial Genesis 1 creation account - this will be a delight to YEC and OEC alike!
