question mark

Before there was a recent debate this past week on on apologetics methodology one of the debaters wrote on Facebook that Presuppositionalists claims that nonbelievers cannot know anything.  If “Presuppositional apologetics” is new to you I recommend checking out our Ultimate Collection of Free Presuppositional Apologetics Lectures and listening to anything on there under Greg Bahnsen.

Is it true that Presuppositionalists claims nonbelievers do not not know anything?

GO TO PART 60

Point: A few days ago I wrote Quick Thoughts on the Inter-relationship of Biblical Theology and Systematic Theology in which I mentioned there is a place for Systematic Theology in terms of looking at the inter-relationship of a biblical doctrine with other biblical doctrines.  How does various doctrines which are clearly taught in Scripture inter-relate with one another?  That’s the place of systematic theology.  Also when we look at the Bible and an apologist works on harmonizing alleged Bible contradictions it involves seeing how various passages “fit” with one another.  How can we illustrate the endeavor of harmonizing biblical doctrines and biblical passages?

A few months ago our blog mentioned that all of Apologist Greg Bahnsen’s MP3 Lectures now free for download!

He’s my favorite apologist and has shaped me in so many ways.  He’s one of my role models with his example of scholarship, intellect, boldness to defend the faith, his desire to be biblical and also his pastoral heart.  And everything he did was so intense.

Here is a quick bio of Bahnsen:

Greg L. Bahnsen, (1948-1995), was an ordained minister in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church and a full time Scholar in Residence for the Southern California Center for Christian Studies. He received his Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Southern California, specializing in the theory of knowledge. He previously received the B.A. (magna cum laude, philosophy) from Westmont College, and then simultaneously earned the M.Div. and Th.M. degrees from Westminster Theological Seminary. Dr. Bahnsen lectured to a broad range of evangelical Christian groups at many colleges and conferences. He was an experienced apologist and debater, a clear and cogent teacher of the Christian worldview who was devoted to training believers in understanding and applying the Christian faith to every area of life. He published numerous scholarly articles, a number of well-known books, and has over 1,500 recorded lectures and sermons.

Among those 1,500 lectures Bahnsen taught a three part series titled “Apologetics in the Workplace.” These were originally taught to lay people in Grand Rapids. He emphasized in opening this series he wants to teach and equip God’s people with knowing how to defend the faith in every day life.

Here’s the MP3s:

1 – Apologetics in the Workplace, Part 1 (1 of 3)

2 – Apologetics in the Workplace, Part 2 (2 of 3)

3 – Apologetics in the Workplace, Part 3 (3 of 3)

Here’s a master’s thesis that Liberty University’s Rawlings School of Divinity has made available titled “The Effect of Ethnic Identity on Biblical Unity in Its Role as an Apologetic.”  I haven’t read the whole thing but I scanned through the table of contents, pages here and there and the conclusion.  I appreciate seeing the writer tackling on key verses related to ethnicity, unity and reconciliation.  I imagine this would be a treat and food for thought for those into apologetics, church unity and a biblical view of ethnicities.  The thesis was written by Caroline Boozer and was completed on May 2019 as part of her completion of her degree in Master of Arts in Christian Apologetics (MA).  This topic seems even more important now in our post 2020 world.  I am thankful Liberty University has made this thesis available online for free.

Here’s an abstract:

Someone asked a question about thoughts of Biblical Theology versus Systematic Theology. I don’t see the two should be against one another but rather both are important, though sometimes some see one is more important than the other in such a way that one is neglected or looked down upon.

Before going further, what is systematic theology and Biblical Theology?

Systematic Theology (I shall use the acronym ST) as defined by popular Systematic Theologian Wayne Grudem is Theology that “focuses on the collection and summary of all biblical passages on a subject, and attempts to summarize the teachings of Scripture in brief, understandable, and carefully formulated statements” (Source).

Biblical Theology (I shall use the acronym BT) as defined by Biblical Theologian Geerhardus Vos “is that branch of Exegetical Theology which deals with the process of the self-revelation of God deposited in the Bible” (Geerhardus Vos, Biblical Theology (Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 1948), 13).

Biblical Theology is not a term to say right theology that is from the Bible (hopefully one’s Biblical Theology and Systematic Theology is based upon truths from the Bible). Rather Biblical is focus on the process and progress of how God revealed Himself and other truths while Systematic Theology often focus on the finished and completed revelation of God in the Bible and tries to organize these truths logically.

Here’s my thought:

I saw a dear brother shared this in an online group that led to a lot of conversations about an apologetics ministry that talked about the relationship between the Bible and Jesus’ resurrection that pit more the Bible against Jesus’ resurrection.

Many of you know I hold to Presuppositional Apologetics’ methodology. And I’m a Presuppositionalist who loves history and historical apologetics! So this is my reply done as much as possible in a gracious attitude.
