For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Did Saul inquire of the Lord?

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

Saul inquired of the Lord.

When Saul inquired of the Lord, the Lord did not answer him, either by dreams or by Urim or by prophets.” (1 Samuel 28:6)

Saul did not inquire of the Lord.

So Saul died for his trespass which he committed against the Lord, because of the word of the Lord which he did not keep; and also because he asked counsel of a medium, making inquiry of it, 14 and did not inquire of the Lord. Therefore He killed him and turned the kingdom to David the son of Jesse.” (1 Chronicles 10:13-14)

GO TO PART 52

Point: Cornelius Often many anti-theists and proponents of non-Christian religions that reject the sovereignty of God would believe that chance is ultimate.  Cornelius Van Til the father of Presuppositional apologetics believes a chance universe is self-defeating of knowledge in which chance makes everything unintelligible as he stated in this excerpt

So hopeless and senseless a picture must be drawn of the natural man’s methodology based as it is upon the assumption that time or chance is ultimate. On his assumption his own rationality is a product of chance. On his assumption even the laws of logic which he employs are products of chance. The rationality and purpose that he may be searching for are still bound to be products of chance. So then the Christian apologist, whose position requires him to hold that Christian theism is really true and as such must be taken as the presupposition which alone makes the acquisition of knowledge in any field intelligible, must join his “friend” in his hopeless gyrations so as to point out to him that his efforts are always in vain. (Source: Cornelius Van Til, The Defense of the Faith (P&R, 1972), p. 102.)

Van Til’s own illustration in the famous quote was the following:

Suppose we think of a man made of water in an infinitely extended and bottomless ocean of water. Desiring to get out of water, he makes a ladder of water. He sets this ladder upon the water and against the water and then attempts to climb out of the water. (Source)

But I think the following illustration below would be a helpful supplement to explain why a chance ultimate universe makes knowledge irrational and unintelligible.

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Should we believe everything?

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

Yes

bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” (1 Corinthians 13:7)

No

The naive believes everything, But the sensible man considers his steps.” (Proverbs 14:15)

When he speaks graciously, do not believe him, For there are seven abominations in his heart.” (Proverbs 26:25)

But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good.” (1 Thessalonians 5:21)

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.” (1 John 4:1)
