For those who don’t know of it, you may be interested to hear that Todd Pruitt and Carl “I’m not a celebrity, I’m just high-profile” Trueman are building their empire with a podcast entitled The Mortification of Spin. According to the spin, er … blurb, MoS is

a bi-weekly casual conversation about things that count. Carl Trueman and Todd Pruitt serve up a humorous, informal podcast with bite. Join this engaging and thought-provoking conversation on the challenges the Church faces and what counts in the Christian life. Served up with a healthy dose of germane cultural references. Hear for yourself if British accents carry more weight …

The first two episodes are on rockstar pastors in Las Vegas (including notes on the imitation of the world and sanctification) and the king’s court jester (discussing such matters as suffering and the nature of evil).

I cannot promise moody monochrome videos, and I am not sure who is providing the soundtrack, but if those are not going to be a problem for you, doubtless there may be a few who wish to tune in.

James White responds:

A Very Important Radio Free Geneva: Ed Young Jr.’s Outrageous Rant Against Straw-Man Calvinism

James White

It was the quintessential example of why we do Radio Free Geneva: a very popular speaker, a huge dose of tradition, a truckload of ignorance, and in this case, a barrel full of anger, all producing a twelve minute long rant “warning” the members of Fellowship Church against that horrible different gospel of Calvinism. It took 90 minutes to work through the “presentation,” but I know for me, the more I heard of it, the worse it got. Be prepared to be amazed, or not, depending on your background. And obviously, if you know anyone impacted by Young’s teaching, you might wish to direct them to this program. Might be the start of something! Here’s the program.

Enjoyed this show and something I’ve been thinking through alot lately. #RPW

The Westminster Confession of Faith 1.6 writes, “The whole counsel of God concerning all things necessary for his own glory, man’s salvation, faith and life, is either expressly set down in Scripture, or by good and necessary consequence may be deduced from Scripture: unto which nothing at any time is to be added, whether by new revelations of the Spirit, or traditions of men.” In this episode,..

beggarsalll:

Ryan McGraw joins Christ the Center to speak about his book By Good and Necessary Consequence, which addresses the subject of making right deductions from Scripture. This book is published by Reformation Heritage Books as part of their series Explorations in Reformed Confessional Theology.

Irenic response to baited question about the Baptist Confession of Faith and editing of the phrase “good and necessary consequence” in Chapter 1: Of the Holy Scriptures, paragraph 6:

6. The whole Councel of God concerning all things (i) necessary for his own Glory, Mans Salvation, Faith and Life, is either expressely set down or necessarily contained in the Holy Scripture; unto which nothing at any time is to be added, whether by new Revelation of the Spirit, or traditions of men. 

Nevertheless we acknowledge the (k) inward illumination of the Spirit of God, to be necessary for the saving understanding of such things as are revealed in the Word, and that there are some circumstances concerning the worship of God, and government of the Church common to humane actions and societies; which are to be (l) ordered by the light of nature, and Christian prudence according to the general rules of the Word, which are always to be observed.
i 2 Tim. 3. 15,16,17. Gal. 1. 8,9.
k John 6. 45. 1 Cor. 2. 9,10,11,12.
l 1 Cor. 11, 13,14. & ch. 14. 26. & 40.

What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains [30 min. audio]

Fascinating show… recommended for anyone that uses the internet or reads ebooks:

Scatterbrains:

In his book The Shallows: What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains, Nicolas Carr writes, “When we go online we enter an environment that promotes cursory reading, hurried and distracted thinking and superficial learning. The net seizes our attention, only to scatter it. We become mindless consumers of data.” On this edition of the program, the hosts discuss this disturbing trend as it relates to our understanding of the faith. How can we become true disciples if we are all becoming superficial learners? How are we to be people of the Book in the age of Google?

Homosexuality… the secular media calls and ask me why [Christians] talk about this so much…I don’t call the media, they call me…

A reporter called me from a major national newspaper and the first question he asked me… was about homosexuality, the second was about homosexuality and the third was, “Why is it that we’re talking about homosexuality?”

"It is because you called me and asked the questions."

And that is just the way it is, that is why the church, right now, finds itself talking so much about homosexuality. It is not because that is what we would choose to talk about but because that is what the world is talking about, that’s what people are asking about and we have a responsibility to respond in truth.
