VerseD: Philippians 4:8

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
Philippians 4:8, ESV

Look for the good and beautiful in all circumstances and things and people. God created us and is in control of history. Finding the good keeps us focused on Him and reminds us to be patient and share the Gospel with others.

VerseD: 2 Corinthians 1:3-4

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
2 Corinthians 1:3‭-‬4, ESV

Firstly, we are comforted knowing we are saved through Christ, so we can offer the comfort to others that they too can be saved.
Knowing this, we can offer comfort, even suffering ourselves, knowing the great rest to come.
Perspective changes everything.

VerseD: Colossians 4:6

Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.
Colossians 4:6, ESV

Most people speak from what they think they know. Let us remember to show grace as we speak the truth, speaking to sin-corrupted minds and souls.
May God grant us the grace and opportunities to bring others to know the truth.

What is Presuppositional Apologetics?

Basically, yep.
True, sometimes folks like Sye Ten Bruggencate and Jeff Durbin get stuck in the loop of saying things like “By what standard?” or “Do you know that is true?” (And they are not wrong.) But they also usually do a great job with argumentation.
Also, isn’t it more conversationally violent to resort to ad hominem attacks and trying to shout down and ridicule others, as many prominent/vocal atheists do.

OakwoodSunsetThis week I saw in my Twitter feed this claim from an atheist

Presuppositional Apologetics is conversational violence

Some of the subsequent discussion helped me to see that most people, like this skeptic, do not understand the what the term means. Many people think it means one of the following

  • I’m right, you’re wrong, that’s the end of it
  • I have blind faith in the deity of my family/culture/choice so I’m right
  • I don’t have any evidence, so I just assume God

This leads many skeptics to wrongly think they have defeated a presuppositional argument with the following fallacies

  • “You have faith in your sky-daddy, but I have evidence”
  • “Your blind faith is simply a result of you being born into a Christian family in America. If you were born in India, you’d be a Hindu”
  • “You have no evidence, so you have to resort to word games”
  • “Presup (presuppositional…

VerseD: Romans 8:6

For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.
Romans 8:6, ESV

Where you focus your thoughts determines how you act.
Do you focus in earthly pleasures or worldly woes?
Or do you focus on God, His Word, and our eternal destination?

The Church during the days of Corona Virus: Pray for your Church to be able to meet again

Our local church reopened in June while maintaining livestreaming for those who choose to remain home and/or are medically urged to remain home. But it would be nice to see everyone, again. It would be nice to not have these limits and expectations placed on us or anyone in society.
As long as people remain in a solid, biblical church, I am not overly saddened (though, of course, I would love everyone to be at “my church”).

Let us continue to pray for our society and to be able to freely meet together, again.

Daniel

VerseD: 2 Corinthians 10:5

We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ
2 Corinthians 10:5 ESV

All we have against God are lame excuses and our own ideas. Therefore, we conform our thoughts and base our reasoning on the Word of God.

VerseD: Mark 9:23

And Jesus said to him, “‘If you can’! All things are possible for one who believes.”
Mark 9:23, ESV

Our God is a God of miracles. Ask Him to stretch out His mighty hand and do what seems impossible, and see what He may do.
