What Is the New Apostolic Reformation
Michael Heiser’s Interview
Here is a very interesting link to a podcast I strongly recommend you take time to listen to.
The Naked Bible Podcast
Alan Kurshner of Eschatos Ministries provides a link from The Naked Bible Podcast. The title is a little provocative but the information is very interesting. On regular broadcasts of the podcast, they promise “theology stripped bare” thus the naked bible title. Michael Heiser is a brilliant theologian. He hosts the podcast. Now being brilliant and also being correct isn’t always the same thing. Often those two things don’t meet at all. (Some books by Alan)(and here)
I did listen to the whole broadcast earlier this week. It’s very enlightening. My blog is dedicated to addressing errors in biblical understanding. Information like this that addresses potential errors in scriptural interpretation is important to me. Church authority is also an important topic of discussion.
Mr. Heiser and his guest break open some news on beliefs that have crept into the church. They don’t mind naming names and ministries. They are very respectful in their approach when addressing particular church leaders but they do stress there are some significant errors in their teaching.
I took a lot of notes but those are in my work office. I’ll do some more work on those sometime next week.
Here’s more from The Naked Bible Podcast.
I also suggest you spend some time on Alan Kurshner’s site if you haven’t seen his work yet. He’s also a very learned man and takes his study very seriously. (His site)
