A few weeks ago my blog hit a milestone of 150 Alleged Bible Contradictions Answered.  These are posts in response to the listing of Bible contradictions from the Skeptic Annotated Bible website.  Looking back at my writings I thought it was important that for Christians when skeptics bring up Bible contradictions to not waste the opportunity to go deeper studying God’s Word.  Why?  It is so we can know how to answer these objection.  But I want to go deeper: Its also to study God’s Word to love God more and to apply the Word of God in our lives by first being in awe and worship of God the Father, the Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.

Don’t waste your Bible contradiction.  Here are ten highlights of the devotional thoughts and applications I had looking back at my study of God’s Word while trying to answer these so called Bible contradictions.

GO TO PART 56

 

Point: Presuppositional apologetics as founded by Cornelius Van Til make the point that to attack Christianity ends up being self-destructive to one’s worldview, making things unintelligible and meaningless.  The bigger problem isn’t the “gadfly” of a Christian doctrine; but rather to try to remove it results in more serious problems.

Picture: Here is a news story that illustrate the point of Presuppositional apologetics:

For seven months or so.

In the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, the ark rested upon the mountains of Ararat.” (Genesis 8:4)

GO TO PART 55

Point: Sometimes when one engage in apologetics the issue of alleged Bible contradiction comes up.  There are times when those who assert that there are contradictory verses in the Bible fail to acknowledge that words can have more than one meaning and thus a word used in one context does not mean the same thing in another context.  But if one fail to recognize there are differences of meaning of the word being used in two separate contexts, a skeptic can easily assume there’s a Bible contradiction when there are none.  Are there any examples of this error to get the point across to a skeptic of their foolish methodology and mistake?

Last week I posted .  Today I want to post another of Greg Bahnsen‘s debate and this would be his most famous one with atheist Gordon Stein.

Thanks to ReformedWiki who spent some time to improve the audio of this debate.   It is because ReformedWiki has improved the sound is why I’m posting this; some of you have followed this blog for years might know our top post for the decades of 2006-2010 and 2010-2020 was on this debate which you can download the MP3 here: Greg Bahnsen vs Gordon Stein Mp3.

The debate took place at the University of Irvine in 1985.  It is unfortunately Dr. Greg Bahnsen died rather young and unexpectantly.  Some of you know he’s my favorite apologist.  Bahnsen was a student of Cornelius Van Til (father of Presuppositional apologetics) and he  was a prolific apologist and theologian and wrote on many subjects from a biblical worldview while he was alive.

Below is the debate and also further information about Greg Bahnsen:

ReformedWiki spent some time to improve the audios for this famous debate between Christian apologist Greg Bahnsen vs Edward Tabash.  The debate took place in UC Davis in California back in 1993.  Unfortunately Dr. Greg Bahnsen died a few years after that debate.  Some of you know he’s my favorite apologist.  Bahnsen was a student of Cornelius Van Til (father of Presuppositional apologetics) and he  was a prolific apologist and theologian while he was alive.
