Tonight, Nightline is airing between Deepak Chopra, Carlton Pearson, Mark Driscoll and Annie Lobert on the existence of Satan. Chopra and Pearson contend against the existence of Satan, while Driscoll (obviously) and Lobert will be arguing the position that he does exist. Mars Hill Church in Seattle will host the event in front of a live audience tonight at their Ballard Campus.
This will undoubtedly be an interesting debate, particularly given the line-up—A “New Spirituality” guru, an ex-Pentecostal pastor-turned vague spiritualist, a former Las Vegas escort who now works to rescue women from the sex trade, and the “controversial” pastor one of the fastest growing churches in America.
Should be fun.
Here’s hoping that Driscoll doesn’t (in his words) “Charlie Brown it but actually get his foot on the ball” (via Facebook).
Nightline airs at 11:35 (Eastern). More details at ABC.com
EDIT: Correction, Nightline was filming the debate on March 20th. The debate will air on March 26th.
