I just finished watching the entire Driscoll and Chopra debate on ABC's Nightline Faceoff series. You can view a great deal of the debate by clicking here.

A few thoughts:

* Driscoll was gospel centered, succinct and straight forward in his presentations.

* Lobert admittedly based her views on her personal experience and testimony.

* Chopra believes he has arrived and is on a "different plane of consciousness" than the rest of us "primitive" neanderthals.

* Pearson? Wow. The dude has obviously been smokin' something... He may be the first example I've personally witnessed of an apostate (Hebrews 3:12; 10:25-31, 39; 2 Peter 2:20-22; 3:17). I'm not certain Pearson knows what he believes, only that he doesn't believe what he used to believe...

Again, you can watch most of the debate here. I'm not certain I walked away from watching the debate any wiser, but it certainly was fascinating to watch.

Driscoll's ready response to questions and objections, and his steadfast commitment to the gospel were an excellent example of 1 Peter 3:15, "But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect..."
