Here’s a doctoral dissertation that Southern Seminary has made available titled “The world in His hands: a Christian account of scientific law and its antithetical competitors.”  For those of you who are into worldview apologetics this is a treat!  The dissertation was written by Chris Bolt and was completed on October 27th, 2016.  Christ Bolt has written quite a bit on apologetics online over the years so its neat to see his dissertation is available online for free.

Here’s an abstract:

There is something called the Dunning–Kruger effect.  It is when people of low ability inaccurately believe their ability is greater than it is.  Here’s a short TED animation video about it:

I think this phenomenon in which incompetent people think they are more knowledgeable than they really are explains the behavior of some such as the troll attacking our series refuting Bible contradictions which I responded to in “Mr. Hodge’s Dodge from Proving a Bible Contradiction.”  That particular individual would assert I need to learn Greek and Hebrew while he himself doesn’t know Greek and Hebrew and somehow he failed to see my posts regularly deal with the Greek and Hebrew when it is relevant.

Although it won’t be easy to deal with an incompetent person who think they are amazing yet what can a Christian apologist do in dealing with such individuals?  Here are six principles to keep in mind.

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Should we believe in unseen things?  This is an alleged contradiction which their website claim has no Christian answer yet.

Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes shows a Bible contradiction (skeptics’ comments included):

Yes.

That is the definition of faith.

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1)

Unseen things are the object of faith.

while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.” (2 Corinthians 4:18)

Believers walk by faith, not by sight.

for we walk by faith, not by sight” (2 Corinthians 5:7)

And they are saved by an unseen hope.

For in hope we have been saved, but hope that is seen is not hope; for who hopes for what he already sees?” (Romans 8:24)

Paul says that we should believe “all things,” which would include things that are not seen.

bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” (1 Corinthians 13:7)

To believe in God, you must believe that he exists, even though you’ve never seen him.

And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.” (Hebrews 11:6)

Jesus praised people who believe in unseen things, calling them “blessed.”

Jesus *said to him, ‘Because you have seen Me, have you believed? Blessed are they who did not see, and yet believed.’” (John 20:29)

No.

“Let no one keep defrauding you of your prize by delighting in self-abasement and the worship of the angels, taking his stand on visions he has seen, inflated without cause by his fleshly mind,” (Colossians 2:18)

(All Scriptural quotation comes from the New American Standard Bible)

Here’s a closer look at whether or not there is a contradiction:

On social media someone asked:

What are some of the ways you are sharing the gospel locally with presuppositional apologetics?

While the context was about actively applying Presuppositional apologetics to sharpen one’s skill I think the question could also be applicable concerning biblical evangelism method in general too.

Here’s my quick thoughts expanding on my original comment:
