Matthew Vines has become the face of the so-called ‘Gay Christian’ Movement but what are his arguments? Are any of them Biblical? Paul looks at a video called “God and the Gay Christian: The Biblical Case in Support of Same-Sex Relationships” and responds to it on today’s program.
Todd Friel recently claimed on his radio show that only 3,000 people were killed during the inquisition and that it was not a ‘reign of terror per se’. Is he correct to side with some modern scholars and with wikipedia’s number of those killed in the inquisition? How should we view the Roman Catholic Inquisition?
Paul looks at some of the arguments which atheists and postmodernists make. Do their arguments hold water? The views of Russell Brand, Stephen Fry and Kyle Kulinski (Secular Talk) are all examined in this critique.
What are the differences between the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith and the Westminster Confession of Faith? How does our view of the covenants affect our view of baptism? What is the Covenant of Grace and when did it begin? What is the Covenant of Redemption? Paul looks at these issues and also critiques the views of Richard Barcellos, James Renihan and Samuel Renihan on this issue.

Who should be baptised? How important is our view of covenant theology? Paul looks at these and other issues as he details how and why he has changed his view on this issue. This has led to a change in confessional stand for the Megiddo Films website.
PF: I do this show not as someone who is in any way an expert on this topic, but as one who has come to a conviction, based on what I believe the Word of God plainly teaches. I am thankful for those who have supported Megiddo Films and Megiddo Radio over the years and I wanted to explain to those who may be concerned with this change in position and wonder why I have done so. I pray that it may bless all those who listen to it.
Paul continues his refutation of Kurt Eichenwald from Newsweek’s article on the Bible, dealing with the many of the early church conspiracy theories that he raises. Were gospels removed from the Bible? What are the gnostic gospels? Should we allow these into the canon of scripture as Mr. Eichenwald seems to claim. What is gnosticism? Is it Christian? Does it respect women? These and other related topics are discussed.
The Sufficiency of Scripture in the Raising of Children:
Kurt Eichenwald, a Newsweek senior writer and New York Times bestseller, recently wrote a piece on the Bible in Newsweek. Was it fair? Was it accurate? Paul discusses these and related issues to the Bible we have in our hands today.
Should Christians keep the Sabbath today? Paul looks at the fourth commandment of the Decalogue and looks at how it is to be kept today. Was the Sabbath introduced at Mount Sinai or was man to keep the Sabbath from the first creation week? Paul also looks at some common arguments against the Sabbath position. What day is the Sabbath on in the New Covenant?
“The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath”
“If ye love me, keep my commandments.”
“Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.”
“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.”
The Westminster Confession of Faith writes in Chapter 21:8 that the “Sabbath is then kept holy unto the Lord, when men, after a due preparing of their hearts, and ordering of their common affairs beforehand, do not only observe an holy rest, all the day, from their own works, words, and thoughts about their worldly employments and recreations, but also are taken up the whole time in the public and private exercises of His worship, and in the duties of necessity and mercy.”
