"Dr" James White (born 1962) is a Baptist and Calvinist theologian and debater based in Phoenix, Arizona, he runs Alpha and Omega Ministries. He is not only famous in Calvinist circles for his debates against Muslims, Mormons and Catholics but is also often derided for his "doctorate" outside of said circles.

Avid debater[edit]

James White is a very avid debater and also known in Calvinist circles for his debates against basically everybody who doesn't fully subscribe to his view from Muslims and Mormons to atheists, Roman Catholics and Christians that don't think the Bible is infallible. [1]

Fake PhD[edit]

Despite his strong debating skill, White possesses a PhD degree from Columbia Evangelical Seminary, a known diploma mill, but insists he is a legitimate doctor. White claims the Seminary was "too young" to be accredited, but if that is the case wouldn't an insistence on being called "doctor" damage his own credibility? Calling oneself a doctor without holding a legitimate PhD doesn't help. Though apparently White is currently working on a legitimate PhD at a South African university.[2][3]


James White is apparently a Young Earth Creationist and a big fan of Jason Lisle, calling him one of the most brilliant people he knows.[4][5] At the risk of sounding petulant, if that's true we might suggest he widen his circle of friends.
