Rev. Dr. K. Scott Oliphint (PhD, Westminster Theological Seminary) is professor of apologetics and systematic theology at Westminster Theological Seminary. He is a proponent of Presuppositional Apologetics which starts with a high view of the God of the Bible, Scripture and engages in apologetics at the level of worldviews.
He was recently on a show for the “Trinities Podcasts” which was loaded up online two days ago. The topic: How Christianity Trumps Philosophy. Readers should beware that not necessarily everything associated with “Trinities Podcasts” is orthodox although Dr. Oliphint who is being interviewed is himself orthodox. Since our blog has a new wave of readers I would say if you are new to Presuppositional apologetics its better to start with Greg Bahnsen’s free Apologetics Course.
Here’s the show as found on Youtube with further description below:
Description of the show:
Does Christianity trump Philosophy? This is one way of putting Dr. K. Scott Oliphint’s covenantal perspective on the two. In this new interview we discuss his contributions to Four Views on Christianity and Philosophy. Topics include:
- his disagreements with his Christian interlocutors Dr. Timothy McGrew and Dr. Paul Moser
- the concept of theological principia
- his views on natural theology and on the correct interpretation of Romans 1
- his understanding of the Trinity
- his views on mysteries, and his problem with Dr. Graham Oppy‘s mysterious physical necessary being
- his understanding of how possibility, necessity, and impossibility relate to God.
