Presuppositional Apologetics and Personal Evangelism

Sounds rather ominous, doe it not? Really deep stuff! Well, not necessarily. First, let’s define our terms.

“Presuppositionalism is a school of Christian apologetics that believes the Christian faith is the only basis for rational thought. It presupposes that the Bible is divine revelation and attempts to expose flaws in other worldviews. It claims that apart from presuppositions, one could not make sense of any human experience, and there can be no set of neutral assumptions from which to reason with a non-Christian”.[i]

 “To evangelize is to present Christ Jesus to sinful people in order that, through the power of the Holy Spirit, they may come to put their trust in God through Him.”[ii]

As a Christian this might be an important question to think about: What is the difference between remorse and repentance?

In several different occasions online I have seen the question asked about recommended Christian children’s book.  This is one that I do highly recommend.

Marty Machowski.  The Gospel Story Bible: Discovering Jesus in the Old and New Testaments.  Greensboro, NC: New Growth Press, November 1st 2011. 328 pp.

Purchase: Westminster | Amazon

Several people have told me they thought this was one of the best Bible story book for kids.  There are many Children’s Bible and Children’s Bible story books out there so I was skeptical when I first heard it until I discovered that the author told Old and New Testament stories in such a way as to point the readers back to Jesus and the Gospel.  I thought that was what made this book unique among children’s book out there.

A brother in the Lord mentioned an anti-Reformed interpretation of Acts 13:48 he saw in a conversation on Facebook.

Here’s what Acts 13:48 states:

When the Gentiles heard this, they began rejoicing and glorifying the word of [ac]the Lord; and as many as had been appointed to eternal life believed

A Reformed interpretation would mean that God took the initiative in appointing people to believe.  Of course an anti-Reformed interpretation would deny that.

Here’s the anti-Reformed take of Acts 13:48

The Greek verb tasso means being arranged or position, which makes perfect sense, the ones who accept the Gospel are arranged or positioned for everlasting life by the Holy Spirit.  The Scriptures are very clear God mold us into whatever we decide, if we reject the message of the Gospel He hardens our heart by our choice but if we accept the Gospel the Holy Spirit prepares us for everlasting life.

Here’s my response:

Have you ever heard of the “Scarlet Thread through the Bible?”  Its the idea that the theme of the blood of Christ runs through the entire Bible including the Old Testament.  Studying Scripture and its typology is beautiful and boosts one’s faith in the Word of God.  The famous preacher W.A. Crisswell has preached a famous sermon with the same title which has been also made into a book that’s available for free on PDF if you click HERE.

My mother in Law shared with me over email about the scarlet thread throughout the Bible and it got me thinking.  Have you ever realized there is a scarlet thread through soteriology (the doctrines of salvation)?

What an amazing thing that we live today in a time in which the internet allows people from all over the world can be exposed to the East and the West.  It’s a great opportunity for the Gospel.

Here’s a passionate sermon in English and translated into Mandarin Chinese.

Be blessed:

I pray the Lord would use this to witness and plant seed to those who are Chinese speaking and do not know Jesus.
