This course was taught by Kedron Jones, a board member for the Apologetics Research Society. The aim of this course was to train and equip individuals to winsomely and articulately communicate the content of the pro-life position in an attractive manner. Successful pro-life apologists pursue four essential tasks. First, they clarify the debate by focusing public attention on one key question: What is the unborn? Second, they establish a foundation for the debate, demonstrating to critics that moral neutrality is impossible. Third, they answer objections persuasively. Fourth, they teach and equip. These tasks are necessary because while the street level debate over abortion rages on, a serious intellectual discussion about the foundation for human rights continues almost unnoticed.The audio to this course will be up as soon as possible so please stay tune!

Dr. John Oakes engaged in a debate on the existence of God titled “God is Not Dead” at a teen camp in Jamul, California on 6/17/2014. His opponent was recent high school graduate Hunter Garnier. Hunter is no slacker, as he was valedictorian of his class and is heading off to UC Berkeley in the Fall. John Oakes took the premise that God is dead, while Hunter took the premise that God is real and God is alive. This may help to explain why Dr. Oakes lost the debate as he suffered from taking a position which is simply not true. John Oakess notes and audio of the debate are available here: Why I don’t believe in God notes God is Not Dead debate audio
