Jim is the Dean and Professor of Historical Theology at the Institute of Reformed Baptist Studies at Westminster Seminary in Escondido, California.

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.

Check out Dr. Renihan and his work online on Twitter: @IRBS_1689, on Facebook, and at the IRBS website. His new book, Faith and Life for Baptists: The Documents of the London Particular Baptist Assemblies, 1689-1694 is an important work for all baptists who want a better grasp on where we came from and what our forefathers were working through in during our early days.

Also, be sure to pick up the new series through RBAP, Recovering Our Confessional Heritage. This is a series of short books on issues related to the 1689 Second London Confession.

“Biblical Exegesis in 4th Century Trinitarian Debates” Dr. Michael Haykin [AUDIO] + more

Reformed Theological Seminary:

confessing-triune-god

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.

Pascal Denault writes:

james-dolezal-768x511

Last October, the Reformed Baptist association of Québec hosted a course on the Doctrine of God with Dr. James E. Dolezal. This was a 30-hour course that was proven to be highly beneficial to all the participants. By clicking this link [zip file], you can download three selected lectures:

  1. Divine Incomprehensibility (part 1)
  2. Divine Incomprehensibility (part 2)
  3. Divine Trinity (Contemporary Issues)

For more teaching on the doctrine of God from Dr. Dolezal, we highly recommend the lectures given at the 2015 Southern California Reformed Baptist Pastors’ Conference.

Next year our association is planning a course on Christian apologetic and other religions with Dr. James R. White. Stay tuned for more details…

Did the Gospels “plagiarize” Pagan Myths? Jeff Riddle answers [AUDIO]

Pastor Jeff Riddle
Pastor Jeff Riddle

Pastor Jeff Riddle:

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 Funeral Sermon [Excerpt & Full Audiobook]

hercules-collins-funeral-sermonSteve Weaver:

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…
