Patrick Hines is the pastor of Bridwell Heights Presbyterian Church in Kingsport, Tennessee and often teach on Presuppositional apologetics.  Here in this series Patrick Hines teaches on Presuppositional apologetics’ on Youtube.  This is a fairly recent series.

I am sharing this also because I have seen some recent misrepresentation of this methodology or it being trivialized and misrepresented.  While there’s a place to refute misrepresentations it might be more fruitful to understand what is Presuppositionalism is in the first place.   Enjoy these videos!

It is Sunday!  I know teaching, preaching and ministering is not always easy.  Among those things that can be difficult is getting everything done that’s on your plate.  Of course that requires self-discipline.  How can we preachers and teachers be encouraged and properly motivated to be disciplined?

For today’s post will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Is God warlike or peaceful?

Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes shows a Bible contradiction:

God is warlike

““The Lord is a warrior; The Lord is His name” (Exodus 15:3)

“He trains my hands for battle, So that my arms can bend a bow of bronze.” (Psalm 18:34)

“Blessed be the Lord, my rock, Who trains my hands for war, And my fingers for battle” (Psalm 144:1)

God is peaceful

“Now the God of peace be with you all. Amen.” (Romans 15:33)

“Now the God of peace, who brought up from the dead the great Shepherd of the sheep through the blood of the eternal covenant, even Jesus our Lord,” (Hebrews 13:20)

“for God is not a God of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.” (1 Corinthians 14:33)

“Finally, brethren, rejoice, be made complete, be comforted, be like-minded, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you.” (2 Corinthians 13:11)

“Now may the Lord of peace Himself continually grant you peace in every circumstance. The Lord be with you all!” (2 Thessalonians 3:16)

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

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

Usually non-believers use this approach to undermine the Genesis narratives, stating that there are civilizations much older than the Hebrew people, thus, the books from the Hebrews have been inspired by previous texts from those folks.

Here’s my reply:
