Gary the Brickyard preacher!
So, who exactly is this fellow? Is he a local phenomenon or should I have heard of him?
I actually once debated him in front of 1000 people.
Wowza, that had to be a little nerve wracking - how'd it end up?
He said that Catholics were evil. I said he was a heretic. He said, "find purgatory in the Bible." (This was during my RC days, but I think this would equally apply to him challenging Orthodox as to why they pray for saints). So I went to his King James Bible, opened it up, and pretended to thumb through it. I said, "This Bible is missing a few books! Where's the book of Maccabbees?! That's where it shows people praying for the dead!" and he says, "are you calling my Bible deficient?!" and I said back, "Why yes I am! It is missing seven books that were inspired by God!!"
LOL, and what was his response to that?
I've always been interested in apologetics debates, so now ya have to provide some more details.
