unbelievers know God spirtually blind

Someone asked: Are unbelievers spiritually blinded? If everyone in their heart knows there is a God, how can they be blinded?

This is a question that particularly is one that concerns the Presuppositional Apologists who say nonbelievers in some sense actually know God but are also spiritually blinded.  If someone is not careful, one can think this is an objection to Presuppositional Apologetics.

Here’s my take:

apologetics_session_bible_s_view_of_unbelief

Establish the need: What does God think about unbelief?

Purpose: We will look at four truths to have a biblical view of how God sees unbelief.

  1. Creation attests that the Biblical God exists
  2. The Word of God is self-evidencing
  3. Christ is self-evidencing
  4. God’s description of unbelievers

Review: Previous Lessons and how it connects with this session

  • We have to defend the faith (session 1)
  • We can’t be neutral (session 2).
  • We have to have a biblical view of faith and reason (session 3)
  • We also need to have a right view of unbelief.
    • Since we can’t be neutral we need to listen to God’s Word on this subject.
    • We need to hear God on whether He has given evidence of Himself and from there what is God’s evaluation of unbelief.

apologetics_session_relationship_of_faith_and_reason

Establish the need: What is the relationship of faith and reason?

Purpose: We will look at four truths to have have a biblical view of faith and reason so that we can properly defend the faith.

  1. God wants us to have faith
  2. God wants us to reason
  3. Wrong Views of relationship of faith and reason
  4. The Right View of Faith and Reason

Review: Previous Lessons and how it connects with this session

  • Session one introduce us to apologetics both with the definition and the duty Christians have to defend the faith–>So this week we want to look at the relationship between faith and reason because we cannot properly defend the faith if we have a wrong view of faith and reason.
  • Of course there are different views with faith and reason. How should we proceed? The second session we covered there is no religious neutrality–>Therefore we need to hold to a biblical view of faith and reason.

Question-mark-blackandwhite

A dear brother whom I esteem name Craig last week brought up some thoughts for conversation based upon my post.  He wrote:

I’ve thought a lot of about non-neutrality–what it might be. I’m not sure what to think about Paul on Mars Hill/the Areopagus (Acts 17:22-31). It seems to me he ‘compromised’ a bit, by engaging them at their level. And I’m not saying that was/is a bad thing.

He took their altar to THE UNKNOWN GOD and explained this as their mistaking this ‘unknown deity’ for the True God. Yet he is careful not to outright denigrate their belief system, though he does in a round-about way in his assertion that God does not dwell in human-made ‘temples’, and His nature cannot be reduced to mere silver or gold. In other words, his explanation for (and to counter their version of) THE UNKNOWN GOD does, by implication, apply to their altars to their other ‘deities’. Yet at the same time, he didn’t explicitly speak against their idols/’deities’.

So, was the Apostle completely ‘neutral’ in his speech/preaching here?

I thought I share my thoughts.
