Point: Some Christians engage in apologetics in a piecemeal fashion.  They give evidence here and there.  They refute an objection here and there.  They don’t see the importance of Presuppositional apologetics’ emphasis of going beyond the individual point and pursuing refutations at the level of worldviews.

Picture: Earlier this year I read a book on counter-terrorism titled Counterstrike by Eric Schmitt and Thom Shanker.  There was a conversation in the book that really stayed with me in terms of the FBI’s post-9/11 change of strategy against terrorism.  Instead of going after an individual they were now going after networks.  Here’s an excerpt from page 38 and 39:

History of Western Philosophy John Frame

John Frame. A History of Western Philosophy and Theology.  Phillipsburg, NJ: Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing, October 23rd, 2015. 864 pp.

This year (2015) is one of John Frame’s most productive years in terms of the quantity and quality of books published.  For many the most anticipated book among them is probably A History of Western Philosophy and Theology.  The following is my review of this book.

If there is anyone today that is qualified to give a biblical evaluation and exposition of Western philosophy and how it shapes theology it would be John Frame.  This book is the result of the author’s experience with teaching and writing on philosophy, theology and apologetics over the last few decades.  Like other works by Frame, this work reflects his commitment to Scripture and the Christian worldview.  At the same time Frame is knowledgeable of philosophy.  Frame is a great model of a Christian scholar:  He is charitable but does not shy away from refuting error.  All this contribute towards making this work a great book.

Reason for no post today

I want to give the reason for no post today.  Which ironically is a post.

Busy today with ministry obligations.

God’s primary vehicle of working in this world today is through the Church.

Don’t forget the importance of ministry in the local church more than blogging and social media.  I’m not saying don’t be involved online–obviously we are here too.  But remember the order.

I’ve been thinking about this video that went viral on Social Media of a father and son discussion after the attack on Paris.

I think one of the reason it went viral is because it’s so human.  Here’s a young boy and his father.  That itself is beautiful.  It’s also such a contrast to the previous day’s event of terrorism.  People need to see some form of humanity after such horrific news.

I imagine those who love kids were drawn to it too.  I myself have children about the child’s age and children that are younger.  So a part of me was drawn to watch the video when I saw it being shared online.

But I am also a bit disturbed by the video.  Actually my feelings are mixed.  I tried to be understanding about people grieving and that this is a child.  I gave this some time and several days before I blogged about it.
