Props to Professor Martz and Temple lights... Here we come!

Just want to give a special thanks to Professor Justin Martz (Phoenix Seminary). Professor Martz is a great friend of mine and teaches both Luke and I private lessons in Koine Greek. Justin you are such a blessing and a real answer to prayer. We are thanking the Lord for your giving of your time and talents for His Glory and Kingdom!

Last night Luke and I went to the temple to do some outreach. But, on the way the Lord had us stop and speak with two missionaries we caught on the way to the temple. It went awesome! These two guys were totally open and we had a VERY long, friendly and warm conversation about God and the Gospel. They said they would love to talk with us again and took our number. Please pray for these guys! I've seen a missionary leave his mission and come to Christ before... I know God can do it again!

Please, pray for us this evening while we take Faith Community Church's group out!

Also, we have been getting a lot of people requesting to help with the ministry. God has been blessing with so much fruit and opportunity to actually reach the lost. However, to be quite honest we need you to stand with us financially. If you have some year end giving to do... would you consider standing with us? We need ministry partners that will give "through" this ministry so that we can reach the lost together. Would you prayerfully consider giving to Apologia? We would be eternally grateful! And we will be sure to give you updates so that you can see how your gifts are impacting the world and expanding His Kingdom!

Bless You and Merry Christmas!

By popular demand...

Our recent conversation with two Jehovah's Witnesses perfectly illustrates the necessity of reaching out to those lost in non-Christian cults. This part of the conversation was just about an hour into the dialogue. Pay attention to the blatant disregard to the actual statements by the Lord Jesus.

In the end, everything comes down to a worldview level. In other words, Jehovah's Witnesses clearly do not get their theology from an exegesis of the actual text of Scripture. They have presuppositionally ruled out the truths of Scripture ahead of time.

Case in point. In the audio clip, I quote a portion of Scripture where the Lord Jesus promises to raise Himself up. This would include two truths that the Watchtower denies:

1. That Jesus was raised in the same body.
2. That Jesus raised Himself

Notice how the Jehovah's Witness cannot make sense out of the text because he has a precommitment to a different view of the Lord Jesus. Because of His views, he is forced in the end to say that Jesus "lied". On the one hand, he wants to agree with Scripture... and on the other he is forced to deny it.

Jesus answered them, "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up." (John 2:19)


How'd you like to be a fly on the wall?

How would you like to sit in on one of the many opportunities that we have to reach the cults with the Gospel? Well, it just so happens we were able to record a conversation that Luke and I had with two Jehovah's Witnesses here in Arizona. This is the second conversation that we had in a week with them. We have a copy of the full conversation (which was AWESOME) and it is available through our ministry. If you would like to get a copy... hit us up at!

Our hearts desire is that you would take what you learn from this conversation and use it to glorify our great God by sharing the truth about who He is and His precious Gospel with the world! Onward Christian Soldiers!

Bless you!



Mormon Temple outreach footage is here!

>> Monday, December 8, 2008

I know... I know. It took a while. But, we finally were able to get some of the footage from our outreach converted and posted on youtube. We will be posting a lot more so keep watching!

Here is some footage from the last weekend we went to the temple. We made a lot of friendships and actually had numerous Mormons:

1. Thank us for being so loving and kind to them.
2. Request to meet with us again.

Aside from equipping the body of Christ to do this sort of thing, our ministry goal is to develop relationships with the lost for the purposes of reaching them for Christ. Our hearts desire is not to beat up the lost but that they would come to Christ. This past weekend's event was a testimony to the necessity of this sort of evangelism. We had a very peaceful and loving dialogue with the LDS in attendence (most of the time :] ) and developed several new relationships that hopefully will bear fruit!

Please continue to pray for us! And don't forget to pass this video on to your friends!

AAAAaargh! Hard drive cameras!

>> Tuesday, December 2, 2008

I wanted to apologize to everyone for not getting our videos up sooner. We purchased a new hard drive camcorder for the ministry and I am convinced ours is broken! We have got some excellent footage! But, most of the footage begins to blur near the end of the clips. So we are working on this technical issue and will do everything in our power to have something up right away. Keep watching because it is some pretty cool stuff.

In the meantime... let me leave you with a classic part of Dr. White's debate with Mormon scholar Dr. Scharffs:
