You can call me Isaac. And I have to say, I really don’t want to be doing a podcast. More importantly, I don’t want to be doing this podcast in particular. But, for a long time now, I’ve been compelled to reach out.
I’m not sure why.
In the famous words of Amos, “I’m neither a prophet nor the son of a prophet.” Well, I can certainly tell you I’m also not an apostle or an evangelists, or an elder or a teacher. In fact, I would bet good money (not my own money, but) I would bet good money that the church – any church – would classify me best as heretic.
And, I would imagine it’s true to some extent.
But, more on that later.
Right now let me do a little bit of an introduction and what my aim is in starting this broadcast. So, grab a seat and let’s figure out why I’ll be talking into this empty room every week.….
For a few years now….well…ever since I broke down and finally got myself a smart phone, I toyed with the idea of replacing a laptop as my main computer with just a phone. After all, it seemed so repetitive to me fumbling around with a laptop when I had a duplicate computer in my pocket going to waste. But, there were some issues that I had to solve before switching to a phone completely would be possible.
So, lets take a look at what I’ve been doing for the last month with my new phone, and how my laptop is now sitting on the side table going to waste.…
A while ago I finished the KI Course Learn the Bible in 24 Hours, and, while I completed the discussion questions and the course review, I have not yet finished the Candidate Research Projects. This series of assignments and the overall courses are a part of my Unschooled Master of Theology Program, so I’m making a point to complete everything required (even if it takes me awhile).
This particular project involves compiling and comparing the different views of the rapture and end time events and corresponds nicely with my preparation for the upcoming dissertation defense I’m to do for my ThD program (my dissertation has been graded, accepted, and hopefully the defense will be scheduled soon – it will be done on Zoom). Even though my dissertation topic was on future persecution of the Church, one important issue brought up was my pre-millennial viewpoint in my project. That being the case, this assignment worked perfectly to prepare for my defense.
So, lets jump in and figure out what all the controversy is about.
I finished the James White Church History course as a requirement for my Unschooled Master of Theology program, and thought I would post the assignment, a Biography paper on an individual from Church History.
So, lets see who I chose and what the Bible and history have to say about them…
I finished this course a few weeks ago and thought a course review was in order. The title is The Modern Classrooms Project course. I stumbled onto this online class when looking up information on a potential podcast I wanted to do in the future, but will now not be developed. I was surprised when I found this course and hoped it would have a lot of useful information.
You can check all of my assignments for this program here.
So, let’s just jump right in and find out if this course is worth taking….
As I finish up the June 2021 Semester for my Unschooled Master of Theology program, one of the projects I wanted to start was a robust and comprehensive Scripture Memorization project. Several years ago, while working as a gas station attendant, and having alot of downtime on my hands, I memorized Isaiah 53, Psalm 2, and Psalm 23 and I can’t be more thankful than I have been to have those passages available to me in any circumstance I find myself in.
As a reminder, you can read all of my course assignments for my Unschooled Master of Theology in Biblical Studies here.
So, let’s get started….
As part of my Unschooled Master of Theology Program I finished reading J. P. Moreland’s Body & Soul.
I was unable to find a copy the normal way online, but LOGOS actually sent me a $20 coupon last month and this was the book I immediately thought of getting. Needless to say, I’m a bit of a Moreland fanatic. He’s a philosophy professor at Biola (not a big fan of the school…ridiculously expensive) and approaches the subject from a Christian perspective.
So, let’s jump into this book and find out what substance dualism actually is….
Quite awhile ago, maybe a year or more, I started the Teaching Company course, Death, Dying, and Afterlife. Most of the lectures I completed during hour long walks down by the beach or out on the Eden property while digging the hole that would/will one day, hopefully, become my monastic cell, a simple shelter or small, dugout cabin.
It was not until I was halfway done with my ThD program that I managed to finish the lectures. Of course, this series was also part of my Unschooled Master of Theology Program, so, it’s probably a good idea to write up a review.
Let’s jump in, then, and find out what this course is all about…
While pursuing my ThD, I finished the Angelology, Anthropology, and Hamartiology course by Dallas Theological Seminary and thought it was time to write up a review on it since it’s part of my Unschooled Master of Theology Program. While you’re at it, you can also check out my other assignments here.
Interested in those mysterious beings, how they are connected to humans and why we are both seemingly plagued by sin? Let’s find out…
