AUDIO: “Only Begotten” or “One and Only”? Why it Makes a Difference

In this audio from Tuesday, December 3rd, Paul takes us through the Gospel of John and the First Epistle of John to show:

  1. “Only begotten” is not a reference to the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem, but to His eternal generation by the Father;
  2. All modern Bible translations have changed “only begotten” to “one and only” or “only Son,” which inadvertently obscures the deity of Jesus Christ
“Only Begotten” or “One and Only”? Why it makes a difference – Part One
“Only Begotten” or “One and Only”? Why it makes a difference – Part Two

“In many respects, I would argue that Rogers’ iconic invitation, “Won’t you be my neighbor?” reflected the religious sensibilities of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, which encouraged individuals to turn the other cheek, to assist the less fortunate and to love their neighbors as they would love themselves.”

Benjamin Rolsky

Why do African-American churches get a pass on politics in the pulpit?

WIKIPEDIA: The Johnson Amendment


New book: Rosa Parks refusing to give up her seat was a pre-planned event staged by the NAACP

“The NAACP not only staged events. it scripted them…One example is Rosa Parks. Over decades, Black History Month has taught millions of schoolchildren to think of her as a ‘tired seamstress,’ whose need to rest her weary legs in the white section of a Montgomery, Alabama, city bus unleashed a storm of spontaneous protests. But she was considerably more than that. Five months before the Montgomery bus boycott began, she attended the Highlander Folk School in New Market, Tennessee, an academy that the Congress of Industrial Organizations had set up for training social agitators. She was an organizer of considerable sophistication, one of the intellectual leaders of the Montgomery NAACP chapter.

Eric Hovind

Eric Hovind grew up immersed in the world of apologetics and following college graduation in 1999, he began full-time ministry. After watching Hell’s Best Kept Secret by Ray Comfort, Eric came to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ with a desire to make Him known throughout the world. President and Founder of Pensacola-based organization, Creation Today, Eric’s passion to reach people with the life-changing message of the Gospel has driven him to speak over 5,000 times in eight foreign countries and all fifty states. Much like a 21st-century Apostle Paul on Mars Hill, in June of 2013 at the dedication of America’s first monument to Atheism, Eric stood to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the atheist community attending its unveiling.
