Christianity built the modern world. From science to music to art and architecture, the Christian worldview has influenced and informed all the “modern” technology and way of life that we (too often) take for granted.

Dr. Greg Bahnsen was known for his phrase “stolen capital.” By this he meant that anti-Christian worldviews take what they like and enjoy from the Christian worldview and apply it to their own worldview, without crediting the original source. Worse than that, they even use Christian principles to attack the Christian faith.

Cornelius Van Til illustrated this idea by saying it was like a young girl slapping her father across the face. Watching this event on a train, Van Til recognized that this is how unbelievers treat God.

The girl’s behavior illustrates rebels who live in God’s world and who are supported by God’s common grace (Psa. 24:1). They sit, as it were, on the lap of God, and it is precisely because they sit on God’s lap that they are able to deliver the slap of ingratitude. Thus unbelievers who tout their own independence and autonomy are only able to do so as they are supported by God Himself (John 19:10-11). Their denial of God is His affirmation. Atheism does not invalidate theism, but proves it because atheism is only possible given the premise of theism. [1]
