James White of Alpha and Omega Ministries, an evangelical Reformed Christian apologetics organization based in Phoenix, Arizona has a lot of explaining to do!
We need to pray that God opens the eyes of James White before he falls away and brings others with him. This is being done before our eyes with doctrines of devils.
1 Timothy 4:1 – Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
Christiannews.net reported that James White was a speaker for a “tattoos and beer” fundraising event for Apologia Church in an effort to plan a new church in Kauai, Hawaii.
James White Guest Speaker for Church Fundraiser Tattooing and Giving Out Beer
A group in Arizona that identifies itself as being under the banner of Reformed Christianity recently raised funds for a church plant in Hawaii by offering tattoos and hosting a Bible conference featuring a beer flight.
Apologia Studios, led by Marcus Pittman, which is a part of Apologia Church, led by Jeff Durbin, is behind the fundraising effort to plant a new church in Kauai.
Pittman posted a provocative live video of the tattoo fundraiser to social media on Wednesday, which he gave the questioning title “Apologia Studios Tattoo Parlor?!”

“This is actually a fundraiser for our Apologia Kauai church plant, so people of the church are donating to have another member of the church tattoo them so they can go to Kauai and we can plant a church there,” Pittman explains. “So, it’s pretty cool.”
As he reads the comments below the video, Pittman notes that a viewer characterized the activity as the “Marilyn Manson-ization of the church,” while another remarked that the fundraiser is “a lot cooler than a bake sale.”
“It’s definitely a lot cooler, for sure,” Pittman agrees.
Another supporter waiting his turn explains that he is going to be tattooed with a “dirty Trinity” design.
“It’s like one of those Zen Buddha paintings with the little Buddha brushes,” he outlines.
Pittman and Durbin, along with Les Lanphere of Reformed Pubcast, also recently hosted a conference on June 1 – 4 called ReformCon, which included a time of “talking theology over beer” at a local pub. Attendees could participate in a beer flight, which is a sampling of various beers.
“This ticket allows you to get a beer flight from Boulders on Broadway. All the proceeds from this benefit our Kauai church plant!”
Speakers at ReformCon included apologist James White, filmmaker Darren Doane and K. Scott Oliphant, a professor of apologetics and systematic theology at Westminster Theological Seminary.
White declined to speak to Christian News Network about his appearance at the conference, and seemed surprised that there would be any issue with the activities.
James White Says It’s All A Conspiracy Theory
For example, James White – the podcaster from Phoenix – has repeatedly referred to the factually-accurate reporting of the Christian News Network as “Yellow Journalism”* and recently, “slander,” for reporting that Apologia Church (where his daughter attends) raised funds through events that included both the selling of alcohol and through providing tattoos.
How bad am I at playing the conspiracy theories game? I had not realized that Sonny Hernandez (of the Free Will debate) was the fellow https://t.co/f8vmtISW4Y dragged up to do the “New Calvinism” attack angle back in June of 2016 in the slandering of Apologia Church. Doh.

Instead of attacking journalists, it would have made far more sense for Mr. White to publicly repent for his error in judgment and unfortunate complicity in this terrible circumstance. Just because you don’t like what a publication prints, and even if you believe it is biased, does not make unassailable facts “fake.”
James White Defends Dialogue with Terrorist Muslim Imam at Church
An interfaith dialogue event at a Mississippi church with a Muslim Imam was meant to help Christians and Muslims engage in conversation and to “get along without compromise” James White said.
“I’m totally in favor of having an accurate view of what they believe,” Andy Woods, the senior pastor of Sugar Land Bible Church in Texas and president of Chafer Theological Seminary in New Mexico, told Christian News Network. “Working out our differences and sitting down and making sure we understand each other is one thing, but giving someone a platform at a church is a different matter.”
“I think the greatest barrier for Christians in reaching out to the Muslim people is fear,” White explained during the discussion. “We have fear in our hearts. It’s based upon ignorance. It’s based upon other things. That’s one of the reasons I wanted to do this.”
“What would it mean if the Muslim people in your neighborhood knew that you loved them, cared about them and prayed for them, and were willing to do anything for them?” he asked. “It would change everything. But unfortunately, that’s not generally how they view us.”
How is it that James White wrote a book called “What Every Christian Needs to Know About the Qur’an” yet can’t recognize when a muslim is flat out lying to his face?
Maybe James White didn’t read where the quran says its okay for Muslims to lie to their enemies for the purpose of carrying out Jihad in the future.
Watch as James White did not refute radical Jihadi Imam who falsely said ISIS is a new thing within Islam…
Former FBI Counter-Terrorism expert exposes James White’s Jihadi Imam mentor:
It is a capital crime in Islam (sharia) for a muslim to teach another muslim anything about Islam that is incorrect AND it is obligatory for a muslim to lie to non-muslims when the goal is obligatory – like advancing Islam.
Qadhi is a sharia scholar and works inside the Muslim Brotherhood’s Movement calling for the implementation of sharia and an Islamic state here in America.
Specifically, Qadhi is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America (AMJA). Qadhi is also the Dean of Academic Affairs and an instructor at the al Maghrib Institute, which has produced a large number of jihadis over the years including Tarek Mehanna, Ramy Zam Zam – the leader of the “Virginia 5,” Daniel Maldonado, Nuradin Abdi (founder of the Al Maghrib’s Ohio Chapter), and others.
Yasir Qadhi has been the keynote speaker at numerous prominent Muslim Brotherhood organizations (eg ICNA), works closely with terrorist organizations like Hamas and its leaders and has a long track record of publicly defending known terrorists such as: convicted terrorist leader Sami al Aria, convicted terrorist Ali al-Timimi, American Taliban fighter John Walker Lindh, convicted Al Qaeda terrorist Aafia Siddiqui, Tarek Mehanna, and others.
Yasir Qadhi was a trustee at the Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas’ Islamic Society of Boston founded by Al Qaeda financier Abdurahman Alamoudi. This is the same ISB which nurtured the Boston Marathon bombers.
Yet, James White publicly stands with Qadhi and lashes out at anyone who brings these facts to light. It appears Mr. White has not read muslim brotherhood doctrine…

No matter how many times people try to correct James White he always comes up with a snide remark.
