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 as my personal recommended series.

I want to deal with a question that was asked in an apologetics group on another social media platform:

Someone please remind me, why is it that when we argue for the existence of God from the impossibility of the contrary, that we don’t actually need to analyze every worldview

Here’s my thoughts:

Here’s a doctoral dissertation that Liberty University’s Rawlings School of Divinity has made available titled “Humanity’s Capacity to Apprehend Aesthetic Value as an Argument for God’s Existence.”   I imagine this would be a treat and food for thought for those into apologetics, theology and philosophy.  I myself am fascinated with how our thinking ability shows there is the existence of God; or rather, because God is, we know we can think, reason, etc.

The dissertation was written by Walter Davis and was completed on March 2017 as part of his completion of his Doctor of Philosophy (PhD).  I am thankful Liberty University has made this thesis available online for free.

GO TO PART 60

Point: A few days ago I wrote Quick Thoughts on the Inter-relationship of Biblical Theology and Systematic Theology in which I mentioned there is a place for Systematic Theology in terms of looking at the inter-relationship of a biblical doctrine with other biblical doctrines.  How does various doctrines which are clearly taught in Scripture inter-relate with one another?  That’s the place of systematic theology.  Also when we look at the Bible and an apologist works on harmonizing alleged Bible contradictions it involves seeing how various passages “fit” with one another.  How can we illustrate the endeavor of harmonizing biblical doctrines and biblical passages?

Here’s a master’s thesis that Liberty University’s Rawlings School of Divinity has made available titled “The Effect of Ethnic Identity on Biblical Unity in Its Role as an Apologetic.”  I haven’t read the whole thing but I scanned through the table of contents, pages here and there and the conclusion.  I appreciate seeing the writer tackling on key verses related to ethnicity, unity and reconciliation.  I imagine this would be a treat and food for thought for those into apologetics, church unity and a biblical view of ethnicities.  The thesis was written by Caroline Boozer and was completed on May 2019 as part of her completion of her degree in Master of Arts in Christian Apologetics (MA).  This topic seems even more important now in our post 2020 world.  I am thankful Liberty University has made this thesis available online for free.
