This is an example (Focus on the Family) of the horrendous errors concerning some in the pro-life movement. There is no solemn statement concerning the killing or the sin of abortion as being murder. Where is the message of repentence, true faith, sexual immorality, and the clear and uncompromising Gospel message? Where is the heightened sensitivity of the baby who is the victim due to their parents’ destructive and immoral choice? I encourage Christians to also research the different pregnancy crisis centers in their communities before fully supporting and financially backing them. Inquire to see if they also do biblical counseling.

Focus on the Family is basically telling people how to safely murder someone in the womb. Parents are not terminating a pregnancy, they are terminating a precious life, made in God’s image.

Have they forgotten Exodus 20:13? Why would you give one an option to kill innocent life, when God never does? To go contrary from His clear Word on the sanctity of life (as seen in the info graphic) is to be complicit in murder.

I’m at a retreat where I’m a guest speaker so this will be quick.

I heard there’s a shooting near Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs and it looks like there’s not a lot of clear information yet but I already see on social media the pro-abortionists already are heating up the blame game rhetoric against the pro-life cause.  I think its unfounded.  Why? Two reasons.

This is our blog’s sixth year in which we post our recommendations of books as Christmas gifts on the subject of Presuppositional apologetics or the Christian worldview.

Here are the recommendations from previous years, and if you are new to the whole thing with Presuppositional apologetics I highly recommend the listing from 2014 which we highlighted in bold:

This year list’s of recommended books on Presuppositional apologetics are more for those moving beyond introduction.  Each category has one book with a brief description, a link to my review and where one can purchase the book.

For Those Moving Beyond Introduction

The Doctrine of the Knowledge of God (A Theology of Lordship) by John Frame

The Doctrine of the Knowledge of God John Frame cover

Description: John Frame’s work is helpful in making one become biblically conscious of theological method.  This is a good way to come to a biblical view of epistemology (theory of knowledge).  My Review can be found by clicking HERE.  Purchase: Westminster | Amazon.

 

John Frame’s Selected Shorter Writings Volume 2 by John M. Frame

John Frame Selected Shorter Writings Volume Two

Description: By shorter writing this book means essays and this book is a good example of how shorter chapters can be filled with substance and be thought-provoking.  Essays on theological method, apologetics and philosophy of education for training those for ministry. My Review can be found by clicking HERE. Purchase: Westminster | Amazon.

For Those Wanting to Go Deeper

Traces of the Trinity: Signs of God in Creation and Human Experience by Peter J. Leithart

Traces of the Trinity Signs of God in Creation and Human Experience by Peter J Leithart

Description: Hands down the most interesting book I’ve read this year and I was pretty skeptical of the book in the beginning.  I have concern for Leithart’s theology in other areas but he hits it out of the ballpark in this book.  If you enjoy Van Til’s use of the Trinity to address the philosophical problems of the One and the Many, you would like this book alot.  My Review can be found by clicking HERE. Purchase: Amazon.

A History of Western Philosophy and Theology by John Frame

History of Western Philosophy John Frame

Description: This is a good look at the history of philosophy and how it impacts theology.  A new book this year!  My Review can be found by clicking HERE.  Purchase: Westminster | Amazon.

For Those Wanting to Gain Insight from Non-Van Tillian Presuppositionalists

In Defense of Theology by Clark Gordon

In Defense of Theology Gordon Clark

Description: I’m commited to Van Til’s apologetics but I have benefited from Gordon Clark.  This work is accessible to those who are new to Clark’s work.  My Review can be found by clicking HERE. Purchase: Amazon | Also Available as E-Book from Trinity Foundation.

Point: Some Christians engage in apologetics in a piecemeal fashion.  They give evidence here and there.  They refute an objection here and there.  They don’t see the importance of Presuppositional apologetics’ emphasis of going beyond the individual point and pursuing refutations at the level of worldviews.

Picture: Earlier this year I read a book on counter-terrorism titled Counterstrike by Eric Schmitt and Thom Shanker.  There was a conversation in the book that really stayed with me in terms of the FBI’s post-9/11 change of strategy against terrorism.  Instead of going after an individual they were now going after networks.  Here’s an excerpt from page 38 and 39:
