Gary discusses recent news articles and events that have been flushed by the liberal media because they don’t fit the narrative.
No one is neutral, not even the person who claims to be neutral.
Unbelieving professors, for example, are very capable of intellectual bullying. They will want you to lay aside your weapons, your defenses, your philosophy, and then bully you with their alleged knowledge of the field, using vocabulary that you’re not familiar with. They’ll try to bamboozle you, to convince you that you must follow the authority of the expert—and they’re the expert in that field. Who are you to come in with some other point of view?
They are not neutral. The very fact that a professor uses one textbook rather than another tells you that he or she is not neutral. The fact that he or she considers certain aspects of the field and a certain range of evidence relevant—that they look at some options and screen out other options—tells you they are guided by some underlying commitments. They are not being as neutral as they claim to be.
Choices must be made, and you can’t make choices without some standard. When you apply that standard, you are indicating that you don’t have a completely open-minded approach to the subject. You are discriminating. You are deciding that one thing is good or bad, more important or less important.
The Bible warns us that unbelievers cannot be neutral. They have a different mindset from the Christian. Notice what Paul says in Ephesians 4 about the difference between believers and unbelievers. It’s not just that one group of people refuses to do drugs and engage in extramarital sexual activity. Paul says that the difference between believers and unbelievers has something to do with the way they think and reason.
Paul says, “This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you no longer walk as the Gentiles also walk” (Eph. 4:17). How did the Gentiles walk? How do unbelievers live in the world? What’s their lifestyle? Paul says it is “in the vanity of their mind, being darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardening of their heart; who being past feeling gave themselves up to lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. But you did not so learn Christ” (Eph. 4:17–20).
Against All Opposition
The starting point is the God of the Bible. The Bible begins with this foundational presupposition: ‘In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth’ (Gen. 1:1). Against All Opposition lays out the definitive apologetic model to help believers understand the biblical method of defending the Christian faith.Buy Now
On today’s podcast, Gary discusses recent news articles and events that have been flushed by the liberal media because they don’t fit the narrative. It’s not just a right-wing conspiracy anymore. The divide and the lack of objectivity in the mainstream media is becoming impossible to ignore… in their own words.
