contradiction

Yesterday I wrote my post “Bible Contradiction? Did Paul go to Jerusalem immediately after his conversion? and from the comments I thought about how I have heard this alleged contradiction has actually been brought up many times including when I was in college by a professor.

Then today I saw this clip from the son of a famous preacher, and this son apostated from Christianity.  These days he’s making videos attacking Christianity.

Point: Sometimes when one engage in apologetics the issue of alleged Bible contradiction comes up and the example given of a Bible contradiction really isn’t a Bible contradiction but an instance where one account gives lesser detail than another account.  Think for instance of those who raise the question “How many men were possessed with demons at the country of the Gadarenes?”  Are there examples we can give in other areas outside of the Bible of how such a tactic to claim there’s a Bible contradiction is problematic?

Point: Everyone has a worldview.  Different worldviews also understand differently what’s  man’s biggest problem.  Of course what is seen as the greatest problem will shape what one thinks should be the solution (if any).  I think a helpful evangelistic and apologetics discussion question is “What do you think is the biggest problem in the world today?” and chances are someone would identify what’s a legitimate problem (though not always); yet what they think is a dire problem might not be the biggest problem from God’s perspective.  

How can we transition that point to sharing the Biblical worldview and also give an analogy for the nonbelievers to “step into the biblical worldview” and have the point driven home?

There’s a thesis for a Master’s in Theology over at Southern Seminary that seems fascinating titled “Reforming Virtue: Bavinck’s Method of Engaging with Virtue Ethics from a Reformed Perspective” by David Moon.  It was completed in December 2022.

I want to examine something in the thesis that was critical of Presuppositionalism and its founder, Cornelius Van Til.

If you read this blog you know that I subscribe to Presuppositional Apologetics.  I won’t be rehearsing what Presuppositional Apologetics is but check out here for a compact definition and here for a lists of many lectures and of those many messages check out Apologetics: What Would Jesus Do? 4 Messages if you can’t decide

While I want to comment about the author’s thoughts on Van Til and Presuppositionalism I want to also say there’s things that one can learn from in the thesis and in no way should this post be seen as a dismissal of everything that’s written in the thesis.

Greg Bahnsen sitting down

What’s the chance there are two conferences in the fall of 2022 dedicated to Presuppositional Apologetics and the contribution of Greg Bahnsen?

This is not to be confused with the Bahnsen conference in Southern California I posted on a few weeks ago that celebrates the life of Greg Bahnsen, a pastor, theologian and apologist for the Christian faith.  This one is in Indiana.  

Bahnsen is one of the apologist that influenced me the most.

These are the videos:

I have written a few years ago “Quick Thoughts on the self attesting nature of the Bible.”  I thought I add to that discussion on the self-attesting nature of the Bible and how Biblical Theology helps us crystalize how the Bible is itself self-attesting.
