In our post “How to Handle Bible Contradictions” I talked about how worldview matters concerning alleged Bible contradictions:

Discussing Bible contradictions doesn’t happen in a vacuum…worldviews shapes one’s interpretation of what are evidences, facts, and the laws of thoughts.

Because worldview matters we must also be conscious of not just refuting Bible contradictions but also whether the skeptics’ worldview even allow for the intelligibility and meaningfulness of talking about “contradictions” or whether the skeptics’ worldview is a self-defeater and undermine their whole enterprise:

So its worth exploring whether a skeptics’ worldview can even make the laws of logic intelligible.  If their own worldview destroys the laws of logic, then there’s no place for them to even critique and say the Bible is problematic by being contradictory in the first place.  Of course worldview apologetics doesn’t take away the place of examining alleged Bible contradictions and refuting them.  But we must not forget that worldviews are important and that if one is arguing for a particular worldview or the rejection of a worldview based upon the claim that the Bible has contradictions, then Presuppositional apologetics must be brought to bear.

Having thus far refuted 70 alleged Bible contradictions from the Skeptic Annotated Bible (SAB) on this blog I thought it would be fair to probe whether the worldview of the author would undermine his own project of the Skeptic Annotated Bible.  What I’m asking here is a famous question asked by theologian Cornelius Van Til: “On what foundation rest the guns which he directs against the Christian position?”  Is it going to be a good foundation or will it be bad ground for his “artillery?”

I love the amount of books from various publishers at the Shepherd’s Conference.

Here are the solid biblical books I recommend from the Conference that are deals but they fly below the radar of being publicized like in the Conference’s bulletins.  Note these books can be purchased online as well and I have linked them online in case they are no longer available.  Also I have linked to my book reviews.

As I’m going over this with a group of guys from my church I thought the following questions might be helpful for individuals and small groups to facilitate discussions and learning based upon the apologetics’ book “Ultimate Proof of Creation” by Jason Lisle.  It is a book that teaches Presuppositional apologetics that engages apologetics at the level of worldview.  Cornelius Van Til was instrumental in beginning this form of apologetics and others have developed and applied it.

For discussion questions for previous chapters click on the following:

Chapter 2

Chapter 3

Chapter 4

Chapter 5

Chapter 6

The questions in this post will be for chapter 7 of the book.  Each question is followed by page numbers in parenthesis where the answer can be found.
