Wherein I publicly debate a Pentecostal minister on the Eucharist

For me, the best part of this 1996 exchange was that it took place at the minister’s church before an audience of several hundred people, most of whom were members of his congregation, most of whom (he told me that evening) were ex-Catholics. We also debated the question of sola scriptura. The whole thing lasted about 3 hours and, for a nominal charge, is available  as a digital download. I hope you find it helpful.


Techno Apologetics: The “Sola Scriptura” Baptists-Can’t-Dance Mix

I had totally forgotten about this little techno tidbit. Whoever cooked this up describes it this way:
These clips are taken from various debates that Protestant Reformed Baptist Elder Dr. James White has done with Catholic apologists: Art Sippo, Justification, 1991; Patrick Madrid, Sola Scriptura . . .
By the way, the “Sola Scriptura is a blueprint for anarchy!” line that Mr. White quotes contemptuously in this montage (actually, I think he may have quoted it contemptuously in our 1993 Sola Scriptura debate in Chula Vista, CA) is something I have been saying for years. You’ll also hear a little bit of Gerry Matatics thrown in there.

And if you’re interested in hearing the full debate I had with James White (oh, how I wish it had been video-taped), called “Does the Bible Teach Sola Scriptura?”, you can download it here. Be sure to check out my follow-up article on that most excellent debate called “The White Man’s Burden.”
