At the 2018 G3 Conference, Michael Kruger and James White discussed issues related to the biblical canon and it was quite practical and theologically rich at the same time.

Five hundred years have passed since Martin Luther posted the 95 Theses to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg. How has the challenge of proclaiming God’s sovereign grace changed in that half millennium?  Why is it harder today to catch the ears of the man in the street than it was in Luther’s day?

Preached from the high pulpit of the Castle Church itself, James White addresses the need to proclaim the gospel with urgency and cogency in the modern day. Drawing on events in Luther’s life, some of which took place in that very room, White challenges the foundational assumptions of the secular age and calls Christians to a faithful proclamation of the gospel, trusting the same God who brought light out of darkness in Wittenberg to do so again in secular Europe and America as well.

Here is the pre-conference (G3 Conference) debate between Dr. James White and Adnan Rashid. Below is the description from the YouTube video:

On Wednesday, January 17, 2018, Sovereign Nations held a Christian and Islamic debate on the thesis “Do We Need the Cross for Salvation?” The debate was purposed by Sovereign Nations in the interests of promoting polemic, scholastic and respectful dialogue between Christians and Muslims.

Upholding the affirmative Christian position was scholar and apologist Dr. James R. White of Alpha and Omega Ministries while the Muslim position was presented by scholar Ustadh Adnan Rashid. The debate was moderated by Sovereign Nations’ Founder, Michael O’Fallon.

There are major theological divides that separate Christianity and Islam. One of the most difficult to unwind is the denial of the crucifixion of Jesus in Muslim tradition.

The penal substitution of Jesus Christ on the cross at Calvary for the sins of his elect, His resurrection and assumption are the foundational to the doctrine of justification in Christianity. Christians believe that on the cross, Jesus voluntarily bore our sins. Jesus allowed people to lie about him and kill him. He used the evil done to him to bring good to others. He sacrificed himself and demonstrated the greatest love of all. On the cross is where we are redeemed, and it is where a Christian’s sin debt to God is canceled.

There are major theological divides that separate Christianity and Islam. One of the most difficult to unwind is the denial of the crucifixion of Jesus in Muslim tradition.

Though the assertion that Jesus did not die on the cross appears in only part of one difficult verse in the Qur’an, scholars agree that the majority view within Islam is that the Qur’an affirms categorically that Christ did not die on the cross and that God raised him to Godself.

The debate offered strong points from both sides with the cross examination period being respectful but aggressive and pointed.

Please enjoy this lively and fascinating debate free of charge.

After Wheaton College disciplined a professor for wearing a hijab and saying “Christians and Muslims worship the same God,” a firestorm of protest and charges of “bigotry” descended on the college. The real problem is that no one believes in religious truth anymore—all that will be allowed is religious opinion, hence, you can’t let your opinions offend anyone! But the reality is, this question is vital, and it allows us to go much deeper into what really divides *believing* Christianity from *believing* Islam. Hopefully this brief discussion will shed some light on the topic.

 

Debate: Graeme Codrington v. James White

Graeme Codrington grew up in the conservative Baptist context of South Africa, even graduating from the Baptist Union Seminary in Johannesburg. Over the past decade, however, he has taken a leading role in promoting “acceptance” of homosexuality and gay marriage in South African churches. In October of 2015 Dr. Codrington engaged James White in debate on the subject of homosexuality at a spacious church in Johannesburg before an audience of about five hundred. The issues were clearly addressed, many questions answered, and the benefit is now for all who can watch and listen and consider the arguments provided by both sides.

 

It comes up in almost every debate…why did Jesus say “Eloi, Eloi, Lama sabachthani”? Christians need to be ready to use this question as a glorious grounds for the proclamation of God’s truth of what was happening on the cross!
