The Great Resurrection Debate: John Shelby Spong vs. William Lane Craig


Y’ever wondered what the difference is between Christian apologetics and Biblical scholarship?  If you haven’t,  and you have taken the time to read this far, you should.  Watch a Christian apologist misrepresent information and blather on and on, without evidence, about his evidence.  Ya, it doesn’t make any sense.  Watch William Lane Craig dishonestly misrepresent … Continue reading
