@mygospelfriends outlawing homelessness is about as useful as outlawing crime. It doesn’t take care of the problem. I think that the church does need to be taking care of homeless regardless of what the government cares to do.

Jon Lorbacher (@Jon_Lorbacher) and John Duncan (@jsduncan04)
Jon L:  In response to xtians drinking I think the Bible says not only is drinking OK but one can even enjoy the effects thereof. I think the psalmist makes that clear in saying wine which gladdens the heart. drunkenness is a sin and discernment is incredibly important. the gladdening of the heart and relaxation certainly doesn’t appear sinful. I may be wrong  John D: I agree that a drink in itself is not a sin; My objection to drinking is no one knows if they have an addictive body chemistry until it’s too late. I judge drinking only on professed doctrine. I’m Baptist so I don’t drink. If Methodist OK in moderation.

A man stumbling out of water, mask and snorkel, carrying a bucket, fins on feet, casting net wrapped around shoulders…that is why a select number of people know Chase as Aquaman.

Jeremiah Martin
On the one hand, I’m pumped that I was mentioned a half dozen times on the podcast. On the other hand, I feel like I wasted my first call with a terrible story… Haha. Not gonna lie, I was just thinking that every time I was mentioned I was referred to by my full name. Immanuel Marsh is just Immanuel, Dan Richardson is just Dan (from Australia), or @BaptistFixer. I was wondering how many Jeremiah’s are in the Hall that you have to emphasize my last name? Haha. I was looking forward to a nickname, but I’m slightly underwhelmed by your suggestion, David. Unless of course my superhero name is Captain Cadaver, which would be killer!
David McConnell Jeremiah – done.

Immanuel Marsh
What I learned from Episode XX:
1. The iPhone 6’s newest feature, a close shave, is not catching on with consumers.
2. Apparently, not having an affair is not high on the list of how to affair-proof your marriage.
3. Reformed/Calvinists believe that God, in his sovereignty, ordained for you to marry that abusive, adulterous, and cruel spouse so that he can receive glory, and your children can enjoy the bountiful blessing that is therapy.
Great show guys.
P.S. – Sorry for the 4-star review. I am cursed with being too honest for my own good (ask my wife). I think I deducted a star for Nick’s repeated “The Twitter” usage. However, the show that I was on is definitely a 5 star show (but only because that’s as high the rating will allow). If it makes you feel any better I finally listened to the RELEVANT podcast, and immediately thought they should add “IR” to their title. I would give them 2 stars.

Tony Vance
Just want to say you’ve offended the funeral director part of your audience (I’ve served as a Funeral Director for 24 years now) with Jeremiah Martin’s story-ugh Immanuel Marsh No one’s safe Tony. No one.

Jacob Hatcher
Thanks for the shoutout as well as the prayers, guys. I would have mentioned football as my first post but Alabama’s loss to Ole Miss and barely surviving Arkansas means I would much rather discuss the rapture. A world in which Kentucky is making a run for the East and Ole Miss and Miss State are vying for number 1 would lead me to believe in Post Trib, because the Beast surely walks among us

I wanted to thank you all for a couple of things as I drove to work: 1) you made me laugh so hard in the first 30 minutes of the podcast this week that I sprayed Diet Dr Pepper all over the inside of my car (which wasn’t helped by the fact that half my mouth is numb from the dentist) and 2) I made a Hoover motorcycle cop laugh at me after he saw me spray said soda in my car. Thanks.

Funky Stinkman
@mygospelfriends Website isn’t showing show notes from eps. 16-19. http://t.co/dSnVgW0GXC

Immanuel Marsh
What I learned from Episode 19:
1. The Bible does not mention cats (Because lions and leopards apparently don’t count).
2. The Gospel Friends’ kryptonite is Bible trivia.
3. iPhone 6 is the leading cause of divorce among pastors.

Jeff Hendricks
Question from Episode 19:If you are a professional (full-time) minister, do you feel (or have you in the past felt) like this limits your freedom in what you can and can’t teach about? What about music ministers? Do you feel a paycheck hinders your freedom to lead worship freely?
For years, I wanted to be a (mostly) full-time music minister, until I actually got the chance to do so. I quickly found that most churches that had paid music staff were very *very* particular in how they carried out their responsibilities. I’ve seen over and over again how the deacon committee dictated exactly what the ministerial staff did, and how they did it.
At one point, I even had someone comment “We pay you $___ so that works out to like, $__ per song!” I no longer lead worship for money… I’m not sure I would ever do so again. It would have to be under extremely unique circumstances for me to agree to it.
If you have experience with this (good or bad) I’d love to hear it. We can encourage each other here without fear of accusation or condemnation.

More From the Hall This Week

Jacob Hatcher
Hey Hall of Dogma! I’m a new listener and new to the Hall. Pre and Post Trib has been mentioned on a couple of episodes. Was wondering what everyone’s thoughts were!

Jacob Hatcher Thanks David. Our most urgent prayer is that he be able to breathe with as little assistance as possible from the machines. He had a heart surgery last Friday that he’s recovering relatively well from so we praise God for that. He’ll be in the NICU until at least Thanksgiving, so just prayers for his continued growth and our sanity. (On top of a three month early baby I work full time retail management and full time seminary student).

Jeremiah Martin
In Episode 19, you guys mentioned some people being in ministry and saying “If I could do anything else, I would… but I have to support my family.” Great thoughts on the topic, but I actually have the opposite problem. I love the work I do, but I’ve always had a heart for ministry. I’ve struggled for a long time with the idea of perpetually “preparing” for ministry and never actually being in full-time ministry. Granted, I realize not all ministry is full-time or vocational, but I travel regularly for my job and I end up missing church regularly, no less trying to be involved in ministries there. Any thoughts?

James Mc Sorley
Q for the hall. I recently heard a discussion between two reformed guys talking about John Mac Arthur on Larry Kings show. Larry asked John about his views on whether or not an infant that dies goes to heaven. Without hesitation John said they did. I was surprised to hear these two saying, that this was a dangerous position to take, as there was no scriptural proof for that viewpoint. Further they then went on to say that if an infant did go straight to heaven, christians should not protest abortion .I thought this was a staggering viewpoint. Its true everyone is born with a fallen nature and guilty in that regard, but an infant is unable to sin by practise, therefore I believe the atonement totally covers them. Also I could never conceive that God would condemn an infant. I personally agree with Mac Arthur and believe there is scriptural proof i.e 2Sam v21-23 also the bible is full of other references of little children and babies in the glory. Spurgeon also has a great sermon on the subject titled ” infant salvation”. Sensitive issue this one, but well worth a discussion.

Tony Vance
Here’s a doozy for theological thinking…
My denomination practices foot-washing as we believe Christ commanded us to do, ‘If I then , your Lord and Master , have washed your feet ; ye also ought to wash one another’s feet . ‘ (John 13:14).
So what’s the thoughts on this, ‘not much practiced’ practice?

Can / Should Christians drink alcohol?
Tony Staley (@tonystaley) @mygospelfriends Would be interested in hearing you all elaborate on the b-dubs discussion in a future podcast (B Dubs is BWW = Beer discussion)
From James McSorley (email to me): Really looking forward to this weeks podcast. For me I don’t see drinking as being inherently sinful, though in the Christian community in Ireland its a big issue. Probably because of how many lives that have been ruined through the abuse of alcohol.
Tony Vance My issue with fermented wine is the clear Biblical command of not to be drunk-drunkenness is a clear sin. A very wise lady said, ‘if it takes 10 beers to get you drunk, 1 makes you 1/10th drunk!’

Tony Vance But I should say-I don’t de-Christianize anyone who feels free to drink (alcohol) -matter-of-fact, my dad (Pentecostal/arminian) & brother (Calvinist /baptist) both exercise that freedom for themselves

John Talley I’d beg to differ on TBN. While a large part of it is prosperity gospel, it still carries the gospel into several countries. James Merritt, Jentezen Franklin, Franklin Graham, and Ed Young are broadcast on TBN. I think it’s largely like a church… Some solid folks, some nut jobs, some that just don’t get it. But it does carry the gospel to a lost and dying world (al beit with golden painted chairs, pink hair, and matching poodles)

I think it’s an area where we have to be careful not to eat our own. We as Christians tend to be more critical of each other than we are of the world and we are less likely to extend grace to those within than without. That’s why we restore lost sinners and crucify sinning saints.

Immanuel Marsh John, Christian pastors also have a responsibility to protect the sheep from wolves. There are a lot of wolves at TBN. TBN is responsible for what goes out over the airwaves. And they made your point on the podcast.
September 24 at 3:43pm · Edited · Like

Dan Richardson The problem with solid, orthodox teachers appearing on networks like TBN is that they give a credibility to the wackiness. Their response might be along the lines of “Well, we’re reaching heaps of people”…but that’s rank pragmatism. Solid teachers need to mark the false teachers…not break-bread with them.

And is unbiblical in a lot of his views. Yet others don’t share this view, so what is everyone’s definition on a heretic.

Robert W. Johnson I’ve always classified heresy as a teaching that, if held, separates one from salvation in Christ. Bell is without doubt in this category as he teaches universalism and religious pluralism.
September 24 at 1:07pm · Like · 1

Robert W. Johnson Just to expound on that last point, someone can have a false teaching but still be in Christ. We have to weigh, Biblically, what separates and what doesn’t. To classify a heresy as simply a false teaching I think results in the abuse of the word.

And this is evident as you don’t have to cruise the internet too much before you find an arminian calling a calvinist a heretic or YEC and OEC. I think it’s a shame that the word has been misused and used so nonchalantly.
September 24 at 2:00pm · Edited · Unlike · 4

Brad Melton So what definition of Universalism are you describing? (There seem to be a few.) Universalism that claims ALL are redeemed to eternity with The Father BECAUSE of Christ’s atoning death and resurrection would seem to not meet Robert’s or Immanuel’s definitions of heresy.

Robert W. Johnson Rob Bell’s view of universalism is false and can lead people into not following Jesus in this life as they will be able to follow Him later on after they’ve lead terrible lives. Bell puts up a good front in interviews but he doesn’t answer any questions head on because he knows the heretical nature of what he writes and teaches. This new book that will be coming out on egalitarianism is going to be along those same lines. This view is heresy to me.

Here’s a quote from the MEV translation website,
” The MEV is a translation of the Textus Receptus and the Jacob ben Hayyim edition of the Masoretic Text, using the King James Version as the base manuscript.”
My question to the hall is: Do you think producing a translation based on the textus receptus and the KJV Translation is a waste of time as new discoveries have found much older manuscripts that were not yet discovered when the KJV translators were working in 1605-1611?

This is a topic I’ve started to study but would like to know your thoughts: How often should communion be performed? Is there a Biblical limitation/instruction?
If possible, provide chapter and verse.

Dan Richardson For you Apple fans, sorry Immanuel, I’ve made this into a 30sec ringtone. You’re welcome https://www.dropbox.com/…/Jesus%20Is%20a%20Friend%20of…
Jeff Hendricks Episode 16: my notes are as follows.It’s “co-habitating” not “co-habiting”. What’s a co-habit? Two people smoking at the same time? Two nuns? Sorry, Immanuel! I had Living Colour on constant play in my car’s tape deck. We’d love to do a cover of Cult Of Personality! Wouldn’t have pegged you as a metal head, but yeah… might have to add Enter Sandman to the list too.”The Renewed Mind” OMG that was awful… he actually tried to moonwalk?? Fail, fail, fail. Might have a hard time converting that one to Chiptune… doing the last one was severely traumatic! My children were permanently scarred from my having to watch it like 10 times in a row.

@mygospelfriends legal counsel likely advised on the chances of being sued and the cost if sued; board likely made decision based on info. best case if sued pay lots of $ and keep cross; worst case pay lot of $ and ordered to remove cross. No win if sued. but attorney who called school is a moron. People think they have a right to not be offended. (I’m a lawyers too)

@mygospelfriends I’m listening to the 25th episode right now. Not so great, guys…

Dan: You have some explaining to do! (Is it possible to talk about this show in an acceptable way??) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nzqtXU0p7Ks From the Australian Children’s TV show, Round The Twist. Round the Twist is notable for having pushed the boundaries of what is acceptable for children’s television, to the extent that the Australian Children’s Television Foundation had difficulty finding a distributor for it: according to the ACTF’s marketing Manager Jenny Buckland, “the scripts were declared ‘too rude’, ‘not for television’ and ‘outrageous'”.[2]
Some episodes include references to flatulence, defecation, urination, body odor, underwear, birth, death, nudity, incest, and genitalia.[3] However these are all used for comic effect, and the series also engages with significant personal or social issues such as environmental conservation, or relations with the opposite sex.[4] Many episodes revolve around helping restless spirits of dead people or animals find peace.[5]

While Christians choose to spend their lives fulfilling the American dream instead of giving their lives to proclaiming the kingdom of God, literally billions in need of the Gospel remain in the dark”

James Mc Sorley Hi Chase, dont know the guy in question but our own pastor is moving on after over sixty years in the ministry and it was heartbreaking! I pray that the church in Brookhills as well as our own flock in Belfast are able to transition quickly and accept and help the new pastors in our respective assemblys.

“To every toiling, heavy-laden sinner, Jesus says, Come to me and rest. But there are many toiling, heavy-laden believers, too. For them this same invitation is meant. Note well the words of Jesus, if you are heavy-laden with your service, and do not mistake it. It is not, Go, labor on, as perhaps you imagine. On the contrary, it is stop, turn back, Come to me and rest. Never, never did Christ send a heavy laden one to work; never, never did He send a hungry one, a weary one, a sick or sorrowing one, away on any service. For such the Bible only says, Come, come, come.”

Richard Dawkins’s Comments Regarding Down Syndrome, David

The Gospel and Down Syndrome


http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/08/17/parents-sue-for-wrongful-birth.html
Richard Dawkins (@RichardDawkins) Women have a right to early abortion. Choice is theirs. Down Syndrome is 1 of the commonest & most moral reasons to exercise that right.
Richard Dawkins (@RichardDawkins)  @TonyD048 I think abortion is right if the woman wants an abortion. Down syndrome is one very good, and extremely common reason, to want it.
Richard Dawkins (@RichardDawkins) I do not for one moment apologise for approaching moral philosophic questions in a logical way. There’s a place for emotion & this isn’t it.
Richard Dawkins (@RichardDawkins)  Most countries accept a woman’s right to abort. Elementary moral philosophy says this does NOT cast doubt on existing people’s right to life
Richard Dawkins (@RichardDawkins) There’s a profound moral difference between “This fetus should now be aborted” and “This person should have been aborted years ago.”
Richard Dawkins (@RichardDawkins)  @Roland_DeVries Yes. Suffering should be avoided. Cause no suffering. Reduce suffering wherever you can.
Response by Jared Buckley: http://specialfamiliescoach.com/richard-dawkins-abortion-of-babies-with-down-syndrome/

Bruce Baker (‏@iambbaker) @RichardDawkins says immoral not to abort baby with Down’s Syndrome. I say high IQ points clearly don’t = high humanity points. #prolife
Ulixes (@THawiliC) The problem is not what @RichardDawkins said, it is that you are all incapable of distinguishing”abort now”frm”you should have been aborted”
Rob Johnson (‏@robjohnson90) @mygospelfriends 1/2 Dawkins is on his way out. He is, however, consistent. He doesn’t believe in objective morality.
Rob Johnson (@robjohnson90) @mygospelfriends 2/2 What’s funny tho, is he spends a ton of time criticizing religion as if it’s objectively wrong. He’s really consistent.
Heretic ‏(@FakeHeretic) @mygospelfriends yeah, let’s all kick the [EDIT] out of @RichardDawkins while he’s down, just as Jesus commanded us to!
Hershel Kreis (‏@W4TMN) @mygospelfriends Easy question:  Dawkins = intelligent idiot.  Too educated to see the truth even though it is all around him
James Westbrook™ ‏(@westbrook___) @mygospelfriends Mr. Dawkins has continued to make his anti-religion argument less and less valid as time progresses.
Kenneth C. Vendler (‏@_vendlerius) @mygospelfriends Dawkins is irrelevant. Once somewhat formidable opponent, he has made himself an unwitting argument for Christianity
