WILLIAM NORMAN GRIGG: "THE JEREMIAH WRIGHT CONTROVERSY"

MP3 Available Here


WILLIAM NORMAN GRIGG, , former Mormon High Priest who converted to Evangelical Christianity, former Senior Editor of The New American magazine and the author of such controversial books as Freedom On The Altar: The UN's Crusade Against God & Family , Global Gun Grab: The UN's Campaign to Disarm Americans and The Gospel of Revolt: Feminism vs. the Family will address "THE JEREMIAH WRIGHT CONTROVERSY."

As most if not all of you know, Democratic Presidential candidate Barack Obama recently was compelled by growing public awareness of his extremely controversial pastor, Jeremiah Wright of Trinity United Church of Christ (a church identifying itself on its own web site as "a congregation which is Unashamedly Black and Unapologetically Christian") in Chicago, IL, to give a televised speech distancing himself from some of Wright's inflammatory remarks about the United States of America and race relations between blacks and whites which many deem to be both unpatriotic and racist. However, while doing so, Mr. Obama refused to officially denounce or separate himself from his spiritual mentor of nearly 20 years. As brilliantly crafted and delivered as this speech may have been, and as inspiring as it was to many, was its contents truly enough to completely separate Mr. Obama's own connection to unpatriotic and racist ideology?

Today William Norman Grigg will provide a Christian response to this situation as one who, being a very "dark skinned" individual of Mexican ancestry, was once a member of a cult (the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) which is deeply rooted in white supremacist racism.

DR. DEREK THOMAS: "HERESY: DEFINED & EXAMINED"

MP3 Available Here

DR. DEREK THOMAS, minister of teaching at First Presbyterian Church (PCA), Jackson, Mississippi, will address the theme: "HERESY: DEFINED & EXAMINED". Originally from Wales, Dr. Derek Thomas is the John E. Richards Professor of Systematic and Practical Theology at Reformed Theological Seminary, also in Jackson, Mississippi. After pastoring for 17 years in Belfast, Northern Ireland, Dr Thomas returned to the USA in 1996.

In addition to serving in the pastorate, Derek has served as editor of the Evangelical Presbyterian, a monthly denominational magazine. A 1978 graduate of RTS, he gained a Ph.D. from the University of Wales, Lampeter, in Calvin’s preaching on the book of Job. He has written numerous books, including The Storm Breaks: Job Simply Explained, Wisdom: the Key to Living God’s Way, and God Strengthens: Ezekiel Simply Explained, Making the Most of Your Devotional Life based on the Ascent Psalms, and Praying the Savior’s Way, based on the Lord’s Prayer.

He also co-edited, Give Praise To God: A Vision for Reforming Worship (P & R).

Today Dr. Thomas will explore such serious questions as:

1.) How serious does an error in one's teaching regarding his faith have to be before it can be rightly labeled a "heresy"?

2.) Are all heresies damnable?

3.) Can a true brother in Christ or a true Church hold to heretical teaching?

4.) When is heresy so dangerous that a Christian must refuse fellowship from a person holding to that heresy?

5.) Is Arminian theology heretical?

6.) Why does the Apostle Paul refer to those in the churches of Galatia who embraced a false gospel "brethren", and yet pronounce an anathema upon those who *teach* another gospel?... and more...

DR. SAM WALDRON: "THE END TIMES MADE SIMPLE: How Could Everybody Be So Wrong About Biblical Prophecy?"

MP3 Available Here

DR. SAM WALDRON, one of the pastors of the Heritage Baptist Church of Owensboro, Kentucky and the Professor of Systematic Theology at the Midwest Center for Theological Studies will address the theme of his book: THE END TIMES MADE SIMPLE: How Could Everybody Be So Wrong About Biblical Prophecy?.

Rapture? Pre-Trib? Post-Trib? Millennium? Confused? You should be! In today’s Evangelical Christian world, eschatology—or the study of the “Last Things”—has been turned into a sort of pseudo-science with a plethora of authors claiming to know exactly the scenario of events that are to take place just prior to the Lord Jesus Christ’s return. On one hand, believers are told they must follow the unbiblical, complex and bizarre scheme of Dispensationalism, with its “Secret Rapture,” political Anti-Christ and worldly Millennium. On the other, those in the “full preterist” camp tell them that all biblical prophecy has been fulfilled in the past and that they should not look for the sky to break open and Our Lord to descend in judgment and triumph. But the author of this work claims that both are wrong and that eschatology, despite what many will tell you, is really a rather simple and straight forward affair. His thesis is that there is This Age, and The Age to Come…we will be, or are, in either one or the other. Any “End Times” system that forms a hybrid of these two, or contradicts this simple formula, is unbiblical, and should be rejected! Piece by piece, Waldron strips away years of false teaching and faulty exegesis thrust upon the church to reveal what the Bible, in its own simple but profound way, says about what will happen at the end of this present age.

Dr. Waldron will also respond to Monday's provocative interview on "Iron Sharpens Iron" with Historic Premillennialist Dr. Barry Horner on his latest book: FUTURE ISRAEL: Why Christian Anti-Judaism Must Be Challenged .

DR. BARRY HORNER: "FUTURE ISRAEL: Why Christian Anti-Judaism Must Be Challenged"

MP3 Available Here

DR. BARRY HORNER, founder of Bunyan Ministries , will address the theme of his new book: FUTURE ISRAEL: Why Christian Anti-Judaism Must Be Challenged .

Author Barry E. Horner writes to persuade readers concerning the divine validity of the Jew today (based on Romans 11:28), as well as the nation of Israel and the land of Palestine, in the midst of this much debated issue within Christendom at various levels. He examines the Bible’s consistent pro-Judaic direction, namely a Judeo-centric eschatology that is a unifying feature throughout Scripture."

Not sensationalist like many other writings on this constantly debated topic, Future Israel is instead notably exegetical and theological in its argumentation.
Endorsement:

"This is by far the best treatement of Israel's future I have found. It's a welcome antidote to the widespread apathy and confusion that have clouded this vital prophetic question. I found it clear, persuasive, thoroughly biblical, and difficult to put down. Future Israel should be required reading for every pastor, seminarian, and student of Bible prophecy." -John MacArthur Pastor GRACE COMMUNITY CHURCH
