An Intervention for Christopher

Below is an attempted intervention for delusional atheist Christopher Hitchens, held by William Lane Craig, Douglas Wilson, Lee Strobel, and Jim Dennison. Not all of the arguments from the theists on the panel were wholesome or helpful, for example -- the appeal to man's free will, and God's need to have it so. But overall, this intervention for Christopher is a good indicator of where the debate lies between today's theists and the "new atheism." If you don't have the time to listen to the whole thing, you wouldn't miss much by skipping ahead to about minute 115:35 and listen to Dr. Craig sum up the whole discussion.

This Just In: Cuthbertson Serves Communion

"On August 23, 1752, the country's first Covenanter minister, John Cuthbertson, presided over the first communion in the New World at Junkin Tent -- a few rough benches in the shade of a tree -- in New Kingstown.

"Hundreds in horse-drawn wagons came from miles away to attend the service."

Yes, this is in the news.
