CARM Radio Show Notes November 21,

Mat read several heretical quotes from a popular “so called” Christian preacher and salted those quotes throughout the program today.

Caller Matt from Seattle, WA. “I am a Calvinist who attends a Four Square Gospel Church.” Caller asks about a current TV program regarding Muslims in America and would also like to learn something of Christian author and debater James White.

Caller Kevin from North Carolina would like to know if Matt thinks Christians ought to be showing much interest in the current “Twilight” vampire types of entertainment.
Additionally: Kevin’s wife Alissa asks about the topic of body tattoos.

Matt read several more quotes from a book by Joyce Meyers: “The Most Important Decision You Will Ever Make.” Including her preaching that Jesus went to hell!

Caller J. P. from Georgia: “If you were to meet an angel or an appearance of the Lord, how would you know it is not a demonic vision?”

Matt mentions one of the past teachings of popular TV evangelist Benny Hinn who describes God as existing in 9 persons: 3 for each member of the Trinity!

Matt closes with a strong rebuke for the heretical teachings of Joyce Meyer with the caveat: “I hope she has recanted such teaching.”

CARM Radio Show Notes for November 15, 2011

Matt discusses counseling and prayer for and with those going through difficult situations. Emotional and/or physical tragedies of all sorts often forces people to commit themselves to a rough, real, and living trust in the Lord.

Caller Michael from California asks: “How can we do everything to the glory of God? What would it look like if we were to do that?” Aren’t there just some things we do (like watching TV) that simply don’t do that?

Caller Frank from Virginia calls for a little advice: “I would like to be more involved in apologetics but I am not sure if I am being called to do so.”

Caller Alison from Arizona asks: “Can you tell me a bit more about the pre-tribulation and the post-tribulation rapture views relating to the return of Jesus?”
Matt makes a great thumbnail summary of these views and provides some relevant Scripture verses worth serious consideration.

CARM Show Notes for November 14, 2011

Matt reports he saw the Joseph Smith Movie over the weekend. Seems to be “standard LDS propaganda.”

Matt further comments on the tendency of LDS church members seeming to base their faith “FEELINGS” rather than facts.

LDS Caller Lee from Nampa, ID. calls to defend the authenticity of the Book of Abraham as “supernaturally translated” (?). However, Lee only has his own personal conviction and “feels in his heart” that it is correct. Lee offers no tangible evidence.

Matt moves further into a bit more of an expose’ of some of the foolish and arrogant boastings of Joseph Smith, and Joseph’s lies in the face of Scriptures. (A brief but spirited rant.)

Caller Ana from Virginia: Did Joseph Smith pattern any of his rituals in Mormonism after those found in Free Masonry?”

Caller Pat: “In the face of some of the ridiculous statements of Joseph Smith, why do LDS people stick with him?”

Caller Chris invites Matt to see the Joseph Smith Movie now playing in town.

Caller Duncan from Boise, ID. Would like to examine the idea of “husband of one wife” as found in 1Timothy 2:12-13 and Titus 1:6.

Caller Terry from Nampa, ID. Confirms that Joseph Smith was indeed convicted for being a fortune teller in New Your State.

(LDS) Caller Richard from Meridian, ID. objects to Matt’s earlier brief expose’ of the “Joseph Smith Papyri.” Though this papyri (The basis for the LDS Book of Abraham) has been thoroughly discredited and exposed as a colossal fraud by competent Egyptologist worldwide, Richard nevertheless defends this modern day LDS embarrassment as being inspired and accurate. (In his opinion)
