#191 Debate - Dan Barker vs Todd Friel - Does God Exist - 2006

It has been about 4 years since I posted the Barker/Friel "Athiest Debate."  I always enjoy good debate that involves challenging questions that come up on both sides.  Listening to conversations like the "Athiest Debate" helps me think through, "What the heck would I say?" or "How in the world would I answer that question?" Let me know your thoughts in the comment section below and maybe throw down some "What are some of the biggest questions you have had about God or questions you have been asked about God?"

Should the world be "MAD" at Christians?

After you watch the (Video) below...think about this. It goes without saying that we see so much of this today, the world mad at Christians, intolerant of Christians, and judging Christians! Well with all of that in mind, I would love to hear your take on Christians and further more...your take on your own life, no matter what you call or don't call yourself. There are some very wise words said in this video. I would love to hear from you if some of those wise words spoke to you. Also would love to have you share your own words of wisdom concerning the world’s anger towards Christianity! Way of the Pastor, Joe Drew

Who is the Church for?

I love this video below. Get's me excited! But it makes me think...who is the Church for? Really. Can we draw this line in the sand? Is Church for the Christian or for the non-Christian? Do we spin our wheels making it so about programs, the latest fads, or transfer church growth and then wrap it up with words like "God is doing amazing things in our church?" Are we to be 100% about seeking and saving the lost or is that just supposed to be part of our programing or purpose statement strategy? 500 giving their lives for the first time in the last five months at Elevation Church...what do you do with that? I love the word Kingdom Multiplication...sounds a lot better than Kingdom Maintenance. Im interested in hearing your thoughts....if the church is not to be about seeking and saving that which is lost...what the heck are we to be about? Chime in Church.

"Love Wins" Publisher Responds to Book Reaction

"Love Wins" Publisher Responds to Book Reaction: "The publisher of Rob Bell's highly controversial book Love Wins has written a letter questioning the strong reactions against the book by conservative Christians." So I am interested in your thoughts on this publisher's response to the criticism that Rob Bell's book has received. I have a few issues with this publisher's reaction towards those who oppose Bell's theological views, but I will wait to see what others have to say first!
