Tonight’s Knights of Contention: Are Lutherans Christian? What about Catholics, Baptists, and Cats?

Tonight, Nov. 9 2010, I’ll be hosting our third “Knights of Contention” real time streaming audio/visual debate.  Direct link to the ‘debate hall.’

There is no requirement that you actually speak.  You will want speakers to hear any conversation.   You will want a microphone if you want to dialog via voice.  A webcam is ok, too, but not required.

Tonight’s topic:  Just what is a Christian?  Are Lutherans Christian?  Are Catholics Christian?  What about Baptists, atheists, Mormons, or cats?

This will be the initial topic but its pretty fluid and informal and who knows where we’ll end up.

Previous Knights of Contention posts can be found browsing here.

For further reading on how I will be approaching this topic, you may consider these blog entries of old:

Christians United on Core Beliefs

Defining ‘Christianity’ Propositionally

I will be alluding to Bertrand Russell to begin with (as I did in the propositionally blog entry above) and his essay, “Why I am Not a Christian.”

    Thanks for sharing this with us – Listen, I wanted to share with you an event coming up in the spring that I think you may enjoy based on the things I’ve read in your blogs. March 12, 2011 a simulcast called The Case for Christianity is taking place that will address similar questions to the one you have raised here.. Led by Lee Strobel (former Legal Editor of the Chicago Tribune) & Mark Mittelberg, all of the most avoided questions Christians don’t like to answer or even discuss. Both are authors of extremely intriguing books, I encourage you to check them out as well as the simulcast in March. Definitely worth the time & almost positive something you would enjoy – thought I’d pass along! Thanks again!
