Obviously, the above picture is NOT Dr. J.P. Moreland presenting a lecture on how one could love God with all their mind!
Guaranteed, if the following conference would have had a one of our current day prophesying, revivalist, faith-healers they would have doubled their attendance, but lowered the IQ level in the room.
Is the Supernatural Real? Comparing Scientific and Historical Facts with the Supernatural
TULSA, Okla. – For centuries people have been intrigued by the supernatural. And no matter what your belief, there is one question that remains universal… Is the supernatural real? Noted author and speaker, Dr. J.P. Moreland will be in Tulsa February 19-20 for a two-day conference discussing this question along with other leading evangelical thinkers providing scientific evidence, statistical proof and historic fact for the supernatural.
The conference will be held at Southwood Baptist Church, 4020 S 102 E Ave. Additional speakers include: Dr. Everett Piper, Dr. John Strappazon and Dr. Jim Burkett. These meetings seek to equip individuals with intellectual answers for 21st century questions.
Is God real? Is the Bible true? Was Jesus authentic? It also exposes the flawed reasoning behind many popular arguments against Christianity utilizing historical evidence, philosophical arguments, and scientific investigations that support Christianity.
Dr. Moreland, author of Kingdom Triangle, is a popular speaker and is one of the leading teachers and authors in the nation on the topic of revitalizing the Christian faith and recovery of influence in the Western church.

Behind Kingdom Triangle
Moreland wrote about his passion behind Kingdom Triangle:
“This is the book I’ve been waiting all my life to write. For thirty-six years I have tried to be a radical for Jesus and to make a difference. This book brings together a life of what I hope is fruitful impact on the culture for Christ. It’s my manifesto; it’s my legacy to the church.”
It’s Moreland’s passion for Christian excellence that has fostered his widespread respect in the evangelical community and beyond:
“I want to foment a revolution of Evangelical life, spirituality, thought and Spirit-led power. My purpose is to mobilize, inspire and instruct an army of men and women for a revolution on behalf of the cause of Christ. The crisis of our age requires nothing less than a revolution of those who live in, proclaim, and seek to advance the Kingdom that was not made with hands.”
