This is an apology to the LGBT Community for a recent video titled 'Confessions of a Christian Nation – LGBTQ Discrimination.' The short, six-minute video features Brian McLaren, Greg Boyd, Brian Zahnd, and Bruxy Cavey. It’s an apology that itself needs to be apologized for.
This talk was given at Praise Church (praisechurch.tv) in Beaumont, TX. Tim Barnett looks at some of the reasons why he believes Jesus resurrection is the best explanation of the historical evidence.
In our discussions with Jehovah’s Witnesses, we need to be tactical. That is, we need to anticipate their typical maneuvers to better guide the conversation. This will give us the best opportunity to be effective in making a lasting impact.
On a recent episode of the Stand to Reason weekly podcast, a supporter of STR took issue with one of the ways Greg Koukl and I argue against theistic evolution.

Jesus’ physical body did not rise; He only rose as a spirit being. Conversely, Christians hold that Jesus rose physically from the dead. Moreover, the same body that died on the cross is the same body that rose three days later, leaving an empty tomb.

Scripture is clear that Jesus is the eternal, uncreated One. When Christians try to argue for the deity of Christ, Jehovah’s Witnesses are quick to bring up Colossians 1:15. Paul writes, “He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation” (Col. 1:15). The modern English translations and the New World Translation agree on the translation of the text. However, the Christian and Jehovah’s Witness differ with their interpretation of the text.
