GO TO PART 59

 

Point: Sometimes when one engage in apologetics the issue of alleged Bible contradiction comes up.  There are times when those who assert that there are contradictory verses in the Bible fail to acknowledge that words can have more than one meaning and thus a word used in one context does not mean the same thing in another context.  But if one fail to recognize there are differences of meaning of the word being used in two separate contexts, a skeptic can easily assume there’s a Bible contradiction when there are none.  Are there any examples of this error to get the point across to a skeptic of their foolish methodology and mistake?

Its strange whoever wrote this call this “God-eating” being “Eric.”

Here’s my response:

If you read this blog you know that I subscribe to Presuppositional Apologetics.  I won’t be rehearsing what Presuppositional Apologetics is but check out here for a compact definition and here for a lists of many lectures and of those many messages check out Apologetics: What Would Jesus Do? 4 Messages if you can’t decide.

From time to time I hear people say Cornelius Van Til, the father of Presuppositional Apologetics was a Postmodernist and that Presuppositionalism is Postmodernism.  This post was from a discussion I had online in another social media platform about this objection.

I don’t think this is true but I want to write a post to think through how does one deal with people bringing this objection and in general objections for other points about Christianity.

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: How should the Moabites be treated?

Here are the answers which the skeptic believes indicate a Bible contradiction:

Do not fight against them or take their land.

Then the Lord said to me, ‘Do not attack Moab, nor provoke them to war, for I will not give you any of their land as a possession, because I have given Ar to the sons of Lot as a possession.” (Deuteronomy 2:9)

Kill them and take their land.

Then he said to them, “Pursue them, for the Lord has handed your enemies the Moabites over to you.” So they went down after him and took control of the crossing places of the Jordan opposite Moab, and did not allow anyone to cross. 29 They struck and killed about ten thousand Moabites at that time, all robust and valiant men; and no one escaped. 30 So Moab was subdued that day under the hand of Israel. And the land was at rest for eighty years.” (Judges 3:28-30)

There is no longer praise for Moab; In Heshbon they have devised disaster against her: ‘Come and let’s cut her off from being a nation!’ You too, [a]Madmen, will be silenced; The sword will follow you.” (Jeremiah 48:2)

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

The dissertation was written by H G. Walker and was completed on December 19, 2019.  Its neat to see his dissertation is available online for free.

Here’s an abstract:

Someone reached out to me who loves to study theology and apologetics but is at a spiritual dry place and struggle with doubt.  To make this anonymous I won’t be sharing his side but my response I think might be helpful for others.  The only part I edited was adding part 5 which was originally not something I said to the person but I thought that would be a good point to add.

Here’s my response:
