The Problem of Not Defining Evil: Craig Vs. Sinnott-Armstrong

This post comes from a very short paper I wrote for a philosophy of religion class at TEDS. I figured since I haven't had time to blog since starting my Theological Studies degree, I might as well share my papers with you. We were limited to five pages double spaced so I didn't get to...

What Dost Thou Mean “Repent”?

The word ‘repent’ has fallen on hard times. It has the outdated feel of old English coupled with the self-righteousy tinge of soapbox preaching. There are some who have completely cut both the word and the concept of repentance out of their theology- to their own destruction. There are others who’ve decided to keep the... Continue Reading →

Parker’s Pensées 1. Apologetics, Sports

What Pascal meant for good, God meant for great! Blaise Pascal (1623-1662) was a French mathematician, philosopher, and Christian apologist. Apparently he set out to write a book to defend and commend the Christian faith but died before it’s completion. The remnants of his apologetical thoughts were collected and arranged- though the proper order of... Continue Reading →

Book Review|12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos by Jordan Peterson

For those who like my posts but aren’t aware that I have another blog just for book reviews, here’s a sample.

I’ve been listening to Peterson’s clips and lectures on YouTube since late 2016 when a couple Canadian Christian apologist friends of mine invited me to like a FB page “Support for Jordan Peterson”. Peterson needed a support page because he was embroiled in a scandal over free speech after Canadian Bill C-16 came out which had serious implications for free and compelled speech. I was initially impressed with Peterson’s ability to keep cool under pressure and speak truth in the face of rabid hostility.

Should You Smack A Red-Winged Black Bird?

BOOOONNNNKKKK!!!!! That’s the last thing you heard before waves of fear, embarrassment, and shame came flooding into your mind. What happened? You were just buzzed by a Red-Winged Black Bird. A tiny little bird just made you look like a punk in front of everyone at the park. He nosedived in from a high perch... Continue Reading →

A Clarkian and A Vantillian discuss TAG

I recently had a short dialogue with Doug Douma, author of The Presbyterian Philosopher: The Authorized Biography of Gordon H. Clark, concerning Van Til’s Transcendental Argument for God. Doug is a “Clarkian” and I am a “Vantillian” yet we were able to have a friendly disagreement. If you know anything about the Clark/Van Til controversy,... Continue Reading →

i Think, Therefore “I AM”: Van Til’s TAG

“According to the principle of Protestantism, man’s consciousness of self and of objects presupposes for their intelligibility the consciousness of God. In asserting this we are not thinking of psychological and temporal priority. We are thinking only of the question as to what is the final reference point in interpretation. The Protestant principle finds this... Continue Reading →
