CB Roundtable #3: The TR and Apologetics

I have posted to the audio-only version of the Confessional Bibliology Roundtable from last Tuesday (5.26.20). This was the third of three presentations and discussions, over the course of three consecutive Tuesdays, on text, theology, and ministry. For all three in the series, look here. In this final session, Pastor Pooyan Mehrshahi of Providence Baptist Chapel in Cheltenham, England gave an excellent presentation on the value of using the TR and translations based upon it in evangelism and apologetics, in general, and with Muslims, in particular.

I just listened to this and it was a tremendous presentation, very convincing. And I always like to heard convincing presentations coming from this position. It's true that not everyone is going to want to get into all the weeds of these issues, and yes, the fact is that many have lost sight of what's really important about the authority of God's word. They've lost sight of this, in their attempts to appear more scholarly and informed, as a way perhaps to distinguish themselves. At the same time, though, it's important to study and search the scriptures and be aware of these things, no matter how quibbling the objections that have been raised in our day, for those who have been seduced by this way of thinking, that they might be saved. Because Scripture also says, "But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear".
