Dr. James White and Dr. Michael Brown debate two who reject both the deity and preexistence of Christ.

Kermit Zarley on Reformation This episode is the first part of my recent conversation with Christian author Kermit Zarley, author of The Restitution of Jesus Christ. 
 On this 500th anniversary of the Reformation, are we still fans of reforming? Or is reforming in light of scripture only acceptable in the distant past? 
 Also, did Luther and Calvin go far enough? Biblical unitarian Christians have long contended that our theology of the one God needs to be rolled back, past the catholic councils, to the Bible’s view that the one God just is the Father. While evangelicals’ official ideology is that all must be based on scripture, and that the Trinity is easily derived from the Bible, in fact, they habitually defer to catholic traditions, and generally refuse to debate whether or not the Trinity can be derived from the Bible. We briefly discuss the Trinity portion of the recent “Reforming Catholic Confession,” meant as a summation of what (nearly) all Protestants believe, and relate this to scriptural language about the one God, aka the Father, and also to God’s “spirit” in the Bible. In this second part of our conversation (part 1 is here, author Kermit Zarley and I discuss the "Word" of John 1:1 and 1:14, the phrase "God the Son," why God might allow "the Church" to err on important subjects, and whether or not a Protestant can allow that he actually has. We also discuss the prospects for further reforming in this 21st century, whether or not unitarian Christianity has been proven a failure, and what is standing in the way of further reforming today.
