In October Joe was preaching at a conference in Wellington, NZ with Dr. Jim Renihan. Jim is the Dean and Professor of Historical Theology at the Institute of Reformed Baptist Studies at Westminster Seminary in Escondido, California. He is a theological beast and an author whom you need to be well acquainted with. Today, Jim talks with Joe about the possibility of a new seminary launching in Texas, the doctrine of divine Impassibility, and of course, Neil Young. Plus, Jimmy interrupts the interview from the other side of the world.
While was Joe was in New Zealand He interviewed Dr. James White. James is the director of Alpha and Omega Ministries, a Christian apologetics organization based in Phoenix, Arizona. He is the author of more than twenty books, a professor, an accomplished debater, and an elder of the Phoenix Reformed Baptist Church.
Before the interview starts Jimmy and Joe talk about the value of bow ties, and afterward they suggest that Dr. White is really a cyborg. During the interview Joe talks to James about apologetics, what James does and does not debate, and why he believes that the doctrine of Scripture is the most critical doctrine in maintaining orthodoxy. Plus, James pulls a “Jimmy” and plays with with phone during the interview.
The purpose of the SCRBPC is for the edification of confessional Reformed Baptist pastors and other interested men who are in the ministry or training for the ministry.

Drs. Stefan T. Lindblad, B.A. in History and Classics from Seattle Pacific University, M.Div. from Westminster Seminary California and the Institute of Reformed Baptist Studies, and Ph.D. candidate in Systematic and Historical Theology at Calvin Theological Seminary.
The recent “Trinity debate” reveals much confusion surrounding what is undoubtedly the most important and the most glorious of Christian doctrines. It also signals the need to retrieve the doctrine of the triune God as confessed by Fathers of the church on the basis of Holy Scripture in the Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creed of A.D. 381. Join Drs. Ligon Duncan, Michael Haykin, Blair Smith, and Scott Swain as they seek to mine the riches of the Nicene Faith for the renewal of today’s church.
Dr. Michael A. G. Haykin is Professor of Church History and Biblical Spirituality at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY. He is the author of a number of books, including The Spirit of God: The Exegesis of 1 and 2 Corinthians in the Pneumatomachian Controversy of the Fourth Century; and Rediscovering the Church Fathers: Who They Were and How They Shaped the Church.
I recently stumbled upon a youtube video by a young atheist apologist named Jaclyn Glenn titled “Disproving Christianity: Jesus is a Lie” (posted in 2013). I thought it might be worthwhile to offer a brief critique.
Her main argument: She claims that that Christians plagiarized the life of Jesus from myths of various pagan deities, including:
The Egyptian god Horus, The Hindu/Indian god Krishna, And the Persian/Roman god Mithras.
Here are five logical and factual problems with this claim…
Hercules Collins died on October 4, 1702. He was interred five days later at Bunhill Fields, the burial ground of dissenters. His funeral sermon was preached by John Piggott, a Seventh-Day Baptist who was renown for his funeral sermons. He preached a number of sermons around this time at the funeral services of prominent London Baptist pastors. The sermon was based on Matthew 24:44, “Therefore be ye also ready; for in such an Hour as you think not, the Son of Man cometh.
The first part of the sermon focused on the biblical text. The latter part of the sermon summarized the life of Collins. This section of the sermon is excerpted below.
In such a posture of soul was he, whose death occasions this discourse. I doubt not but he was actually as well as habitually ready; you know I mean your late worthy pastor Mr. Hercules Collins, concerning whom I have need to say the less, because his doctrine you have heard, and his example you have seen for so many years; the former was agreeable to the sentiments of the reformed churches in all fundamental articles of faith, and the latter such as did adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour…
