On this week’s edition of Scottscope Talk Radio, the roundtable celebrates the 20th anniversary of the Notorious B.I.G’s classic debut album Ready to Die. Is it truly a timeless classic? Has it become hopelessly dated? Can B.I.G truly be called one of the greatest of all time with only two studio albums to his credit? Was he simply the beneficiary of east coast bias? Did he steal Tupac’s style, or was Pac simply one of his many influences? Was the official version of the album better than the early version? Can Rick Ross still be considered the heir apparent to the B.I.G throne?
We’ll also be celebrating the 20th anniversary of Oliver Stone’s controversial masterpiece, Natural Born Killers! Is it still as shocking as it was 20 years ago? Does the film’s basic premise still resonate? Is it truly an indictment of American News media and popular culture, or is it merely a celebration of wretched excess? Is it in the same class as Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange, Badlands, and Bonnie and Clyde? Is it the last truly great film that Oliver Stone did?

The History of Christianity #38
Our Scripture verse today is Colossians 2:3 which reads: "In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge."
Our quote today is from Aristides. He said: "Christians are they who, above every people of the Earth, have found the truth, for they acknowledge God, the creator and maker of all things, in the only-begotten Son and in the Holy Spirit."
Today, we are looking at "The Deposit of the Faith" (Part 3) from Dr. Justo L. Gonzalez's fine book, The Story of Christianity (Volume 1).
Gnosticism (Part 2)
In Christian Gnosticism - one should always remember that there were also non-Christian Gnostics - that messenger is Christ. What Christ has then done is to come to earth in order to remind us of our heavenly origin, and to give us the secret knowledge without which we cannot return to the spiritual mansions.
Since Christ is a heavenly messenger, and since body and matter are evil, most Christian Gnostics rejected the notion that Christ had a body like ours. Some said that his body was an appearance, a sort of ghost that miraculously seemed to be a real body. Many distinguished between the heavenly "Christ" and the earthly "Jesus," apparently believing that the latter was merely the shell in which Christ appeared. In some cases, this was coupled with the notion that Jesus did have a body, but that this was of a "spiritual matter," different from ours. Most denied the birth of Jesus, which would have put him under the power of the material world. All these notions are various degrees of what the church at large called Docetism - a name derived from a Greek word meaning "to seem" - for all of them implied, in one way or another, that the body of Jesus appeared to be fully human, but was not.
Our Scripture verse today is Hebrews 11:16 which reads: "But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city."
Our quote today is from John Calvin. He said: "A dog barks when his master is attacked. I would be a coward if I saw that God's truth is attacked and yet would remain silent."
Today, we are looking at "The Defense of the Faith" (Part 5) from Dr. Justo L. Gonzalez's fine book, The Story of Christianity (Volume 1).
Today's subject is The Arguments of the Apologists
Justin's use of the doctrine of the Logos provided a basic framework within which Christians could claim whatever they wished from the rich lode of classical culture. But there still remained the need to refute the various objections raised against Christianity. Although it is impossible to list here all such refutations, some examples will give a general idea of the nature of the arguments of the apologists.
When accused of being atheists because they had no visible gods, Christians responded that in that case many of the greatest philosophers and poets were also atheists. To support that statement it sufficed to quote the ancient writers who had affirmed that the gods were human inventions, and that their vices were worse than those of their worshipers. Aristides suggested that such gods had been invented precisely in order to give full rein to human vice. Also, a common argument was that the idols, often made of gold and precious stones, had to be guarded against thieves. How can a god that must be protected provide any protection? How can a god made by human hands be above humans? On these points orthodox Christianity held to the doctrine of monotheism and divine creation that it had learned from its Jewish background...
The History of Christianity #32
Our Scripture verse today is 1 Peter 3:15 which reads: "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."
Our quote today is from Tertullian. He said: "Truth persuades by teaching, but does not teach by persuading."
Today, we are examining "The Defense of the Faith" (Part 3) from Dr. Justo L. Gonzalez's fine book, The Story of Christianity (Volume 1).
Today's subject is The Main Apologists
The task of responding to such criticism resulted in some of the most remarkable theological works of the second century, a tradition that continued for many years thereafter. At this point, however, it will suffice to deal with the apologists of the second century and the beginning of the third.
Probably the earliest surviving apology is the Letter to Diognetus, whose unknown author - perhaps a certain Quadratus mentioned by ancient historians - seems to have lived early in the second century. Shortly thereafter, before 138, Aristides wrote an apology that has been rediscovered in modern times. But the most famous of the early apologists was Justin, who is also one of our earliest sources describing Christian worship. Justin had lived through a long spiritual pilgrimage, from school to school, until he found in Christianity what he called "the true philosophy." Three of his works are extant: two apologies - which are really two parts of a single work - and a Dialogue with Trypho, a Jewish rabbi...
Next time, we will examine Christian Faith and Pagan Culture in The Defense of the Faith.
This week on Roundtable with Stephanie Robinson, Stephanie asks a blunt question: Are Americans crazier than we used to be? With all of the rapid technological changes, economic woes and high profile violence, are we unraveling at our seams?
