the past three years the debate has begun with an introduction,
of sorts, by Chris Arnzen, who moonlights by day as a salesman,
but who really does his best work as a Christian comedian.
Here both debaters crack up at Chris' opening monologue.
Rumor has it that someone associated with the Tonight Show was in
the audience, and Chris is slated for an appearance in the near
these debates, which have helped so many, would NEVER happen if
it were not for the diligent effort and long hours of labor
provided by Chris Arnzen. Our deepest thanks to this
brother in the Lord for his commitment to Christ, and his
faithful labors in the Lord.
