As a Christian I do enjoy flying and the opportunity to share the Gospel (Jesus dying on the cross to save us sinners) with those next to me.  Now of course this must be done in a manner that is Godly and respectful.  It’s also a joy to talk to different people and walks of life.  Up to this point all my conversations have been cordial.

Apparently Christians aren’t the only ones who want to share their worldview.

This past weekend a lady and her husband was kicked off their flight because the wife was berating a Trump supporter flying home after the inauguration.

Let’s just say she did not talk to the Trump supporter in a Godly manner.

Here’s my two cent.  I realize my tone is stronger than usual but I think it captures just how dangerous some on the Left have become in their intolerance.

John Frame is probably one of my favorite living theologians today.  He’s also someone who advocate and have made positive contribution towards Presuppositional Apologetics’ as well.

Here’s an interview with John Frame on one of his recent book on “Western Philosophy and Theology.”  This 700 page work is one of my favorite survey of philosophy from a Christian and a Presuppositionalists’ perspective.  My own review of the book can be found here: Review: A History of Western Philosophy and Theology by John Frame.

Here’s the two part video in which the hosts interviewed Dr. Frame:

Dr. James Anderson is a Christian theologian, philosopher and apologist who teaches at Reformed Theological Seminary.  I appreciate the fact that he’s a Presuppositionalists and has written many scholarly journal articles in addition to his wonderful interactive book  which I have reviewed on this blog in the past.

I was glad to hear that Ligonier Ministries has given him the opportunity to speak at their 2016 National Conference.  This is wonderful and somewhat of a surprised for myself, given how RC Sproul doesn’t necessarily think highly of Presuppositional apologetics.

Below is the video of Dr. Anderson’s presentation.  It is under 20 minutes in duration so worth the watch.

If you enjoyed it, again I would recommend you to consider his book “.”

History of Western Philosophy John Frame

John Frame. A History of Western Philosophy and Theology.  Phillipsburg, NJ: Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing, October 23rd, 2015. 864 pp.

This year (2015) is one of John Frame’s most productive years in terms of the quantity and quality of books published.  For many the most anticipated book among them is probably A History of Western Philosophy and Theology.  The following is my review of this book.

If there is anyone today that is qualified to give a biblical evaluation and exposition of Western philosophy and how it shapes theology it would be John Frame.  This book is the result of the author’s experience with teaching and writing on philosophy, theology and apologetics over the last few decades.  Like other works by Frame, this work reflects his commitment to Scripture and the Christian worldview.  At the same time Frame is knowledgeable of philosophy.  Frame is a great model of a Christian scholar:  He is charitable but does not shy away from refuting error.  All this contribute towards making this work a great book.

JStalin_Secretary_general_CCCP_1942

From a biography on Stalin:

In the end, Stalin’s self-education, political experience, and character formed a mind that was in many ways repellant but ideally suited to holding onto power.  His oversimplification of reality, in which phenomena were explained in terms of a historic stand off–between classes, between capitalism and socialism–outlived his system.

A model of the world based on the principle of class struggle permitted him to ignore complexity and despise his victims.  It allowed the regime’s most heinous crimes to be seen as a natural expression of historical laws and innocent mistakes to be seen as crimes.  It allowed criminal intentions and actions to be attributed to people who intended and committed no crimes.  In a relatively uneducated country, simplication was an excellent tool of social manipulation”

There is always the danger of a worldview that simplies things so much it justifies all sorts of evil.

50 shades of grey liberals

True story.

On the one hand, Christian wives submitting to their loving husband is bad.  <Insert Marxist, neo-colonialism psycho-babble>.  Therefore it is oppressive.

On the other hand, one must be open minded about ungodly man manipulating and forcing a woman into unwanted sexual situation and that it is….okay?  <Insert discussion of sexual “liberation” and free from Victorian era Morality>.  Therefore 50 Shades of Grey is great?
