The Great Debate: Greg Bahnsen vs Gordon Stein

The Great Debate: Greg Bahnsen vs Gordon Stein on Vimeo. Christian philosopher Greg Bahnsen debates atheist Gordon Stein.

"The transcendental proof for God's existence is that without Him it is impossible to prove anything. The atheist world view is irrational and cannot consistently provide the preconditions of intelligible experience, science, logic, or morality." By the time you have listened to this engaging debate in its entirety, you will have these points firmly embedded in your mind.     … [Read more...]

Proof That God Exist

Go to Proof that God Exists if you have anydoubt!A common misconception is that the Christian and 'unbeliever' are on common philosophical ground, but the Christian just believes a few things extra that the professed unbeliever does not believe. If this were the case, it would make perfect sense to try to reason with the professed unbeliever, and present evidence so that they too could use their unaided reason to come to that extra belief. The problem is, the minute you use traditional arguments, you grant that the unbeliever can use logic and reason to assess them.
