Update on the HD Camera Project

I am pleased to announce that the camera project has been fully funded as of this morning. I would like to thank all of those who donated toward this project. It is my sincere hope that in 2014 we will be able to use this equipment to produce a number of high quality teaching videos that we can put up on YouTube as well as on discs that we can mail out to churches around the world.

Thank you again for your generosity and we promise to be good stewards of your investment in the kingdom.

Blessings

A little over a month ago I blogged the post below. Well, today I thought that I would give an update on the project. First, I have been re-digitizing every video that I can get my hands on out of storage. Wow, do we have alot of videos, (I hope YouTube can handle it all), but I am feverishly working toward getting all of this footage up on our new YouTube channel. In the meantime the need for the equipment below still continues and we are almost halfway to the goal. If you haven’t read my first post please take a moment and familiarize yourself with the goal.

Blessings

From 10/9/2013
As I type this I am in the process of uploading the video of the very first ‘Great Debate’ on Long Island from 1996 to YouTube.  The numerous ‘issues’ with the recording from that debate would eventually lead to our purchasing cameras of our own and sending volunteers out to Long Island in order to record future ones. As we expand the Dividing Lines to YouTube, so too I hope to expand the number of videos that we offer up there. Which brings me to my reason for writing today. In the early days of this ministry James would do seminars on various foundational topics in apologetics. It has long been my hope that one day we could go back to the classroom and re-record those presentations on video. With the advent of YouTube, HD Video and HD graphics that hope has turned into something that I never could have imagined years ago. So here is the vision, I am asking for special donations to upgrade our video cameras to HD. We already have the wireless microphones, the expensive tripods for the cameras, as well as the computers and the software to merge and process the footage and graphics together. However, our cameras just don’t measure up anymore. Further, as James does future debates it is my hope to once again use this equipment to properly record these events as I used to be able to do years ago. I have setup a special donations page because these cameras are not cheap. However, they are worth every bit of their cost with the quality product that they can deliver.

Here are the cameras that I am wanting to purchase for the ministry and here is the link to the donation page where you can help us get them.

Another Wild Conspiracy Theory Announcement Coming

Thanks to the dozen or more folks who have sent me links to the British “the Romans invented Christianity” story.  I am well aware of it.  There is nothing much to be said, of course, until whatever documentation being offered is published, but if you read the story carefully, you will see it is coming from a radically skeptical perspective that is, to put it mildly, biased in its origins.  In any case, I will interact with what was said by the proponents on the Dividing Line eitherFriday (if we do a program) or next Tuesday.  But till then, remember when the media went nuts about “the Jesus family tomb” story?  Most folks don’t even remember the story any longer.  Someone is always trying for their 15 minutes of fame (and inordinate income).  Keep that in mind.

A Good Report from South Africa

I just received a call from Dr. White as he was leaving tonight’s debates. The evening went very well. We is unable to post a report at the moment but hopes to find time soon. Tomorrow begins a much heavier schedule after only five hours of sleep tonight. Please keep him in prayer.
