On today's program, I discussed the debate which happened yesterday on the subject of limited atonement, in which I debated Rev. Dr. Theodore Zachariades on the question: Did Jesus Die for All? On today's program, I put together some of my thoughts on the conversation, and I also expanded upon the points which I was only able to present in a cursory fashion during the debate.

This was supposed to be a Q&A program, but I ended up answering only one listener question related to the authority of the Lutheran Confessions. I discussed the importance of Confessions, their nature, and the relationship between Confessions and Scripture. I also asked the question as to whether it might be necessary to add to our Confessions of faith in the future.

On today's program, I spoke about problems with the Book of Mormon. I addressed the lack of historical evidence of any of its events, and discussed the fact that the Mormon texts do not speak like ancient documents, but as products of the nineteenth century.
