Christ Orthodox Presbyterian Church Sponsors Debates • Saturday March 29, 2003

The Salt Lake Tribune, Mar. 29, 2003
By Peggy Fletcher Stack, The Salt Lake Tribune

There was a time in America when different interpretations of Christian scripture and traditions were debated in the public square. For weeks on end, fascinated onlookers filled the nation’s churches to see Catholic and Protestant leaders argue arcane points of doctrine.

Now some leaders at Christ Orthodox Presbyterian Church in Salt Lake City are resurrecting the tradition.

On Friday, the church is sponsoring a debate between Protestant apologist James White, who is the director of Alpha & Omega Ministries in Phoenix and the author of Letters to a Mormon Elder, and LDS defender Dennis Potter, who teaches philosophy at Utah Valley State College in Orem and is managing editor of Element: An E-journal of Mormon Theology and Philosophy.

The two will debate the question: Does Christ’s atonement perfect those to whom it is applied?

On April 5, White, who also has written Catholic Apologetics International and author of Not By Faith Alone: The Biblical Evidence of the Catholic Doctrine of Justification.

The topic for that debate will be: Is the Mass a propitiatory sacrifice? [Translation: Was Christ's sacrifice complete or do we have to add something?]

Both debates will be held at 7 p.m. in Orson Spencer Hall on the University of Utah campus in Salt Lake City. They are open to the public and admission and parking are free.
