    On April 2nd, there is going to be a debate at my seminary in NC between Dr. Ehrman and Mike Licona.

    Debate - Bart Ehrman and Mike Licona "Can Historians Prove Jesus Rose From The Dead?" April 2, 2009, 7:00 p.m., $35. For tickets call 704-847-5600.

    I imagine this will be taped as well.

    Money grabbers! You can get this information in any good text on theology.

    Cheers,

    Dr. Bart Ehrman has desecrated the name of Jesus Christ and wounded too many people's faith.

    I weep at the judgment awaiting him. It grieves me.

    I do wonder though, how much more critical the divine will be with the individuals who will help Dr. Ehrman get richer by "defending the faith" before him. As my good man Jim1999 there are plenty of texts and speakers who have adequately replied...and probably have done a far better job for less than $35 a ticket.

    I was able to attend a panel discussion in 2006 at the SW Baptist Seminary which included Bart Erhman, Norman Geisler, and I think a NT prof from the Seminary and maybe one other guy from a liberal school, plus the moderator. It was very, very intersting.

    Geisler basically was able to shred Erhman's points to little pieces. He was great.

    What does Ehrman getting richer matter when the faith of many is being tested?

    Ehrman is a dangerous man.
    Who cares about his personal material wealth?

    Wow, who are you calling money grabbers?
    These men are defending the scriptures against someone who has a lot of influence and is damaging the faith of many.

    I have never heard him mention anything about the prophecies concerning Jesus and their validity.

    He sees the Bible as man generated and of not much substance other than to appease people and make them feel good.

    He is a very dangerous man! He leaves out many things and fails to address some of the main issues. The problem with him is that the average person would not know how wrong he is. One thing I have noticed over the years is that seldom is the person who is a true expert in an area ever interviewed.

    The one who has studied the subject and is considered an authority on the issue would blow people like Ehrman away. While his credentials may sound impressive they are far from many who are in the actual field of study.

    Adds credibility to his case with people outside of Christianity (who are being deeply affected by his views.) Also, it enables and encourages him to produce more works with his dangerous views.

    Also, if these guys were really concerned with people's faith, the evangelicals involved should be giving their stuff away...not charging high dollar for it.

    Dr. Ehrman's points are found as a result of specious reasoning and he has no legs to stand on. A first year PhD student in New Testament studies could answer most of his charges easily.

    Dr. Darrell Bock has responded with vigor and really shown that Dr. Ehrman is just after the sensationalism and dollar his extreme views bring.

    I don't think $35 is much, and most likely it pays the travel cost of someone involved or perhaps a speaker fee (I have no idea of Erhman charges, but maybe he does).

    Nor is it unresonable to charge for CDs or DVDs. There is a cost in making them. I've never seen any at conferences that were overcharged - usually they charge the minimum they can.

    I can remember the days when nobody charged anything. Today that is a different story. Shall we go back to pew rents instead of trusting God? Imagine the BGEA charging for people to come.

    When nobody charged anything?" Could you please give some context here?

    Do you charge when you work for free?

    I doubt you will find a time when "nobody charged for anything" you might find a time when some seminars had no admission fee. You still can.

    But charging a fee to cover the enormous cost of having Bart Ehrman in for a night.

    However, one nights speaking fee in no way increases the influence of Ehrman.

    So we go from was Jesus misquoted by scripture to how much they charge for debates? Do you think everyone is a little A.D.D?

    The context of singing groups and performances. Love offerings were taken and not a flat fee was charged ahead of time.

    No one ever charged at all?

    Well, I've spoken at some conferences for free or for token amounts, and had to pay my own travel and motel. Since I live on donations, it would be nice to have some help.

    I paid much more than 35.00 to see a 3 hour performance by Donny Osmond in a Broadway musical. I did, however, get my money's worth.

    Cheers,

    Jim

    Marcia, you wouldn't have recognized him. Remember, this was Broadway and not the typical rock and roll.

    I do love Broadway musicals........I am worldly. A deep hidden secret...I even attended 13 presentations of The Phantom of the Opera.....

    Cheers,

    Jim
