We Need Three!
07/27/2012 - Rich PierceFor almost thirty years Alpha and Omega Ministries has operated with no more than two employees and great volunteer support. Today, by God's grace the ministry has grown and the demand for James to travel to debates and speaking engagements all over the world is ever increasing. This has lead the board of directors to ask me to find a way to add employee number three.
The primary responsibility of this third employee is to assist in the planning and scheduling of James' ever increasing schedule so that he can stay focused on research, writing and equipping the saints through the all of the facets of this ministry.
Barry Ladden, who is the current Vice President of the ministry, has agreed to step in to this position. Barry has already been volunteering on a part time basis as Jamesí assistant and will take on additional, pressing ministry needs. For example, our MP3 shopping cart is desperately in need of reorganization so that folks like you can have an easier time finding the important recordings that you are looking for and Barry will be taking the lead in making that happen in our upcoming transition to a new website and shopping cart.
Although the need has been identified, the budget does not yet exist to fund this third employee. This is why we are reaching out to you. Please take a moment and consider providing your financial support in order to make this happen. Below we have created a PayPal link where the proceeds will be designated to be used for just this position. One time gifts are obviously important and welcome but we would also ask that you consider becoming a repeating donor to provide on-going support for this ministry need. Call me if you would like to setup a repeating donation schedule at 877-753-3341 ext 327.

A Very Sad Two Year Anniversary
07/08/2012 - James WhiteTwo years ago today I posted the following video. It was right toward the end of the major period of revelations concerning the false claims of Ergun Caner. On June 25th of 2010 Caner had been released from his position as president of Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary. The cover-up on the part of Liberty was still ongoing. As we have learned since then, a series of facile excuses had been produced by someone at Truett McConnell College, where Emir Caner, Ergun's brother, is President. These shallow and easily refuted excuses had been posted on Norman Geisler's website. It had not taken us very long to document the many errors in the material. I produced this video asking three basic questions for anyone who would accept what Norman Geisler was promoting in the Christian community. Two years of silence have now passed. Geisler, and those associated with him, have refused to even acknowledge the existence of these questions, let alone respond to them. It is a sad chapter in the history of Christian apologetics in the United States, and a tremendous testimony to the power of politics, money, tradition, and croneyism. At least some of us can say we have honestly faced the issues and called for truth and honesty. Sadly, our numbers are few. Far greater are those who have turned a blind eye, and who to this day, though knowing the truth of these matters, share platforms with an unrepentant and still defiant Ergun Caner, and those who have enabled him to avoid doing the right thing, mainly, his brother Emir, Norman Geisler, and the political machine that chose to dodge responsibility rather than deal with direct dishonesty and deception.
This next video was posted about a month earlier, and remains highly instructional and important:
