Counterfeit Gospels

For a class assignment, I had students read a book by Trevin Wax called Counterfeit Gospels. Then they were to find clips from YouTube that matched up with the counterfeit gospel presentations in Wax's book. Each of these write-ups will be published on a new blog: Counterfeit Gospels. Starting April 2, about 3-4 posts per day will appear, with a total of about 55-60 posts. I'd love to hear your feedback on these! Whether you believe the students' critique was accurate or unfair; whether you think the counterfeit being identified is a counterfeit at all! Maybe you'll see other issues with the presentation not mentioned by the student. Regardless, the class and I would love to get your feedback.

NIV Translation and the SBC

The trustees of LifeWay Christian Resources have decided, unanimously, to continue selling the 2011 NIV translation. I think this is a very wise decision by LifeWay. No Bible translation is perfect; the 2011 NIV has its faults. However, it is still a good translation and worthy of much use in the Church.

Bob Chisholm's Symposium Videos

Dr. Robert Chisholm, Professor at Dallas Theological Seminary, visited Liberty University in the Spring of 2011. His lectures (and responses) were previously posted on this blog. However, the quality wasn't very good (one apparently had no sound). Now the videos are available in much higher quality.

Chisholm on Isaiah 53 (Morning session)
Chisholm on A Biblical Theology of Judges

Response by Dr. Michael Smith (Liberty University)

Response by Dr. Harvey Hartman (Liberty University)

Q&A with Chisholm, Smith, and Hartman
