Some Basic Principles for Christian Apologetics

The following are some of the notes for a book I’m writing on the moral argument for the existence of God. In a debate on subjects where there are fundamental disagreements, a number of basic preliminaries must first be established before a meaningful discussion can take place.

Presuppositional Apologetics: Stated and Defended, by Greg L. Bahnsen

Dr. Greg L. Bahnsen (1948–1995) provided perhaps the clearest, most faithful, and most powerful advancement of Cornelius Van Til’s presuppositional apologetics of anyone. This statement holds true both for Bahnsen’s written scholarly work as well as his practical applications in both formal and informal debates and exchanges. Those knowledgeable of Van Til’s “Copernican Revolution” in […]

Resources for presuppositional apologetics

Our Genes are Like ‘Ruthless Chicago Gangsters’

Atheists, materialists, and evolutionists are cranking out books trying to come up with ways that can account for morality. I have a shelf-full of them. Their first problem is that they assume there is such a “thing” as ethics. That morality is real. Let me be clear. I am not saying that atheists are immoral. […]

Magicians Penn & Teller are atheistic frauds

The other night I saw Penn & Teller do their magic show. It was lots of fun. In addition to their stage ‘magic,’ they are also known for exposing quacks, frauds, and claims of the supernatural. In addition, they are big believers in doing the moral thing. That’s what Penn says since Teller doesn’t say […]

Family Culture vs. Pop Culture

Although it is never objectively accurate to say that a certain time period was “the good old days,” there are many positive values that our society has lost in the past 150 years.

Is The Earthquake In DC A Sign Of The End?

Is the earthquake that impacted Washington, DC a sign of the end? You might be surprised that it’s not the first earthquake to shake our nation’s capital, but it will undoubtedly lead prophetic speculators to conclude that we are nearing the end of all things. Dr. Gary DeMar discusses all this and more here on Vantage Point.

Throwing the Elephant: Bogus Argumentation and Gullibility

What does it mean to “throw the elephant”? A person responds to an argument by dumping loads of seemingly relevant information on it, calls it a “refutation,” and declares himself the winner, all the while hoping his opponent won’t notice how faulty much of the information is. The internet has made throwing the elephant a […]
