“When you violate God’s laws, you plunder the very purpose for which you live,” said world renowned apologist Ravi Zacharias in last night’s General Session. And how do we ultimately reach the world? By keeping the Word of God central. “If we compromise there, we will…humanize God and deify man so that we can hardly tell the difference,” Ravi reminded us, telling attendees that we can only impact individuals around us if we present a Gospel that’s heard, seen, and actually felt. It was a message that challenged, inspired, and convicted.

And as broadcasters committed to taking the Gospel to the uttermost parts of the earth, we are blessed to have God’s word at our very fingertips. Yet as Thomas Nelson’s extraordinary exhibit at NRB 2011 shows us, it has not always been so easy. If you want to check out the “Living Legacy of the Bible” exhibit, this morning is your very last chance! It’s only open from 7:00-9:00 a.m. in the Delta A Ballroom. You’ll see a piece of the Dead Sea Scrolls, view an original 1611 King James Bible, and get an “up close and personal” look at ancient cuneiform and Egyptian papyrus, just to name a few things in this amazing exhibit. It’s an inspiring collection that you’re unlikely to see all in one place ever again.

And just as that exhibit closes, head upstairs to the Delta Mezzanine for the ever popular Innovation Exchange. Join your peers in Radio, Television, Church Media or Internet in the popular, round-table discussions that utilize peer-networking to mine for innovative ideas to solve shared challenges.

If that’s not enough to keep you busy, today is the much-anticipated Public Policy Debate, which promises excitement in Delta Ballroom C. At 11:00 a.m., nationally syndicated radio host Janet Parshall will moderate a discussion between Joe Dallas, former homosexual and ex-gay rights activist, and Rev. Dr. Cindi Love, Executive Director of Soulforce. These national leaders – who are on opposite sides of the gay rights issue – promise to challenge you as they focus on the question of the Christian Church’s response to the gay rights movement.
