The Hypocrisy of the LGBT Community

A few thoughts to consider for the thoughtful reader of DefCon – 1. Ok, for those who think to the contrary of the Bible, I would like to call your bluff in no uncertain terms. Please provide indisputable PROOF from the scientific and medical communities that people are born transgender or as homosexuals or lesbians, […]

Divided We Stand?

To preface my thoughts, I want to ask that each of you who read this, read all the way to the end before making a judgment call. I would like to chime in on the valid points raised by Chris in the previous post. One of our readers, Jon Gleason commented on the issue of […]

Divided We Fall

It was a post from my friend and fellow evangelist, Bobby McCreery, that got me thinking. He wrote, “I’m no expert, but it seems one reason revival tarries is the fact that there is so much division in the body of Christ. So many brothers biting and devouring each other over secondary and tertiary issues […]

The Mormon Moment? Religious Conviction and the 2012 Election

To vote or not to vote…that is the question. At least it has been the question at Defending. Contending. for many months now. We have all discussed whether a Christian should or can vote for a Mormon candidate…or if we should or can vote for a pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage candidate, or if we should just […]

Debate: Mariology – Who is Mary according to Scripture?

When you build a theology on pagan goddess worship, man’s traditions, a dead religion of works, and arguing from silence, you will always lose the debate when faced with God’s Word. See also: It’s All About Mary? HT: Cup of Joe

Walter Martin vs Van Hale debate: “Is Mormonism Christian?”

vs Christian apologist Walter Martin takes on Mormon apologist Van Hale in a debate entitled Is Mormonism Christian? It is another fine job by Walter Martin in defending the faith from those who would seek to pervert it. Years after this debate, Van Hale publicly announced (in 2005) that he cannot accept the Book of […]

A Clearer Understanding of What Albert Mohler Believes About Homosexuality

Back several weeks ago there were some serious concerns in conservative circles regarding comments that Albert Mohler made to the Southern Baptist Convention conference in regard to homosexuality. Mohler’s comments left room for serious doubt in how he viewed homosexuality. The original article and comment thread can be found HERE. I am pleased to see […]

Cultoons: A dying man on a Mormon’s doorstep.

DefCon is pleased to introduce its first ever Cultoon. If the dialogue in this Cultoon sounds familiar, it was loosely derived from an actual debate featured on this previous post. Enjoy.

Debate: New Age Bible Versions – James White vs Gail Riplinger.

In this audio debate James White takes on Gail Riplinger on the topic of King James Onlyism. This classic debate is under an hour long and I highly recommend it to those struggling with the opinion of whether or not any other English translation of the Bible can be trusted. James White also exposes the […]

Debates: Walter Martin vs Bishop John Spong.

The late Christian Apologist Dr. Walter Martin takes on the heretic Bishop Spong in this fifteen part debate on the topic of morality, homosexuality, and other sexual ethics. The first four videos set the tone for the debate as Spong denies the physical resurrection of Christ and His deity.

Barry Lynn Debates Without a Bible

Here’s a portion of a debate between James White, and Barry Lynn, on the topic, “Is Homosexuality Compatible with Biblical Christianity?” I think the fact that the “Reverend” didn’t bother to bring a Bible to the debate illustrates his lack of respect for the Bible. Is it not extremely clear which debater is more concerned […]

Walter Martin debates Wiccans on the Phil Donahue Show.

Here’s a blast from the past. On this episode of the Phil Donahue show Walter Martin debates two Wiccans. Some of the most interesting comments come from audience members and callers who should know better (like the Baptist and the Catholic). Although I don’t necessarily agree with Dr. Martin’s affirming remark about Charismatics, I must […]

Part One Part Two Part Three

Debates: Walter Martin vs Bahai.

Part One: Part Two: Part Three:

Walter Martin on Mormonism.

James White cross-examines Mormon apologist.

This is a great video. At the end James White asks the Mormon two questions that the Mormon simply cannot answer.

The heretic and the not-so-good apologist.

What do you get when a heretic and a not-so-good apologist duke it out on the topic of Hell’s existence? You get a debate that leaves you feeling a little empty . . . like a fantastic opportunity was lost. The one defending the truth of the doctrine of Hell tries with all his might, […]

Street preachers boldly go into the wanna-be anti-Christ’s church and engage the deceived.

For those who watched the videos in this post on the false prophet who claims to be Christ and wondered to yourself how could anyone believe that stuff, here’s your chance to see how this anti-Christ’s followers justify their belief. I haven’t seen this much Scripture twisting since the last time I talked to Mormons […]

Debates with a Jehovah’s Witness.

A Jehovah’s Witness by the name of TJ has been going “door to door” in cyberspace. Actually he’s been going “blog to blog” with his messages of Hath God really said? I engaged him on one blog regarding the physical, bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ (which he denies occurred). If you’re interested in some good […]

A Christian debates a Catholic on the street corner.

When your views are opposed to Scripture, claim it’s being misinterpreted (all the while misinterpreting it yourself). When your authority is found outside the revealed Word of God, you fall into all kinds of error.
