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. Bahnsen's presentation and defense of the transcendental argument for the existence of God was masterful. He showed that one can focus on a crucial element of defending the faith, not get pulled into side issues, and repeatedly place the challenge before one's skeptical opponent. "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...]

A Little Something Called Context

It seems that Atheists don't do their homework when they read Literature like the Bible.  One must engage the Authors of the Bible (Both God and man) and their presuppositions and contexts to understand meaning.  It seems that when people don't, they can incorrectly invent any discrepancies in the Bible that they want.  The following link is a refutation of an atheist's misinterpretation of Scripture by Douglas Wilson.

Humbling Our Theology to God and His Word – The Bible

In thinking more about humbling my thingking to God and his word when it comes to theological development, I believe that the key is to test our presuppositions, preunderstandings and theological systems by the Word of God, making the Scriptures our preeminent authority, not to deny that we have a theological system. I admit that this is not easy to do, since many times we have emotional commitments to certain theological systems (or parts of theological systems) because: We still suffer from indwelling sin and idolatry We don't see the the scriptures from a whole or complete canonical viewpoint as God does. Thus we fail to place the particular passages in the right context, being satisfied to interpret a verse independently of the passage, a passage independently of the chapter, a chapter independently of the book, or a book independently of theTestament, or a Testament independently of the whole Bible. We fail to see: The Bible as one book and one Christian book (not … [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. You lend credence to a worldview that does not allow for logic and reason.The above site is a good for anyone wanting to understand why only Chirstians can use logic and reason.see also www.disciplemaking.net … [Read more...]
