Warner Wallace.  God’s Crime Scene for Kids: Investigate Creation with a Real Detective.  Colorado Springs, CO: David C. Cook, September 1st, 2017. 144 pp.

This was a kid’s version of the author’s same book titled “God’s Crime Scene” in which the author J. Warner Wallace presents a case for the existence of God using Classical and Evidentialist’s arguments.  When I was reading it I couldn’t put the book down because it was that captivating.  The following is my thoughts on the book.

The last two weeks seems to have more internet controversies against Presuppositional apologetics from various quarters.  I think it is always unfortunate when Christians misrepresent other Christians and in this post I want to deal with an objection against Presuppositional apologetics.

I have wrote a previous post titled “ which dealt with this particular critic.  The critic have also wrote the following:

Further, I think that the presuppositionalist has just misunderstood the doctrine of total depravity. Depravity is a moral concept, not a qualitative concept. The whole of humanity is fallen, but not depraved. Human eyesight, for instance, is fallen. People need to wear glasses. It is not depraved. When a Christian is born again, they are not given new eyesight. Likewise, human reason is not qualitatively changed when they become a Christian. If that were the case, then non-Christians would be utterly unreasonable. The natural man would have no capacity to interact with the world on an intellectual level. But Paul said that the natural man does not understand the things of the Spirit of God (1st Corinthians 2:14). If we are going to engage with and against presuppositional apologetics, we need to understand that it is a foolish mistake to conflate the moral depravity in the Bible with human reasoning.

Here’s my thoughts:

Patrick Hines is the pastor of Bridwell Heights Presbyterian Church in Kingsport, Tennessee and often teach on Presuppositional apologetics.  Here in this series Patrick Hines teaches on Presuppositional apologetics’ on Youtube.  This is a fairly recent series.

I am sharing this also because I have seen some recent misrepresentation of this methodology or it being trivialized and misrepresented.  While there’s a place to refute misrepresentations it might be more fruitful to understand what is Presuppositionalism is in the first place.   Enjoy these videos!

For today’s post will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Is God warlike or peaceful?

Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes shows a Bible contradiction:

God is warlike

““The Lord is a warrior; The Lord is His name” (Exodus 15:3)

“He trains my hands for battle, So that my arms can bend a bow of bronze.” (Psalm 18:34)

“Blessed be the Lord, my rock, Who trains my hands for war, And my fingers for battle” (Psalm 144:1)

God is peaceful

“Now the God of peace be with you all. Amen.” (Romans 15:33)

“Now the God of peace, who brought up from the dead the great Shepherd of the sheep through the blood of the eternal covenant, even Jesus our Lord,” (Hebrews 13:20)

“for God is not a God of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.” (1 Corinthians 14:33)

“Finally, brethren, rejoice, be made complete, be comforted, be like-minded, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you.” (2 Corinthians 13:11)

“Now may the Lord of peace Himself continually grant you peace in every circumstance. The Lord be with you all!” (2 Thessalonians 3:16)

(All Scriptural quotation comes from the New American Standard Bible)

Here’s a closer look at whether or not there is a contradiction:
