Sproul, and Paul Washer.

David Pratt is back on Reconnect to further discuss his love of Presuppositional Apologetics.

His brother, Jonathan Pratt, and Andy Wrasman have lots of questions for him, especially Andy, who prefers to lead with the Gospel and defend the message of the Gospel using historical evidence for the historicity of the New Testament.

The following questions are discussed (not in the particular order of the video):

Did the Apostles ever try to convince someone that God exists?

Did the Apostles ever use presuppositional apologetics?
Did the Apostles ever use evidential apologetics?

What does 1 Peter 3:15 tell us to be able to prepared to give a defense for?

Does Scripture teach that everyone knows that the Triune Lord exists or just that a Creator God exists?

So Atheists are lying when they say there is no God, because they actually know there is a God? Do you find it helpful to tell Atheists, you’re not an Atheist, you know God exists? Then more specifically tell them that they know the Christian God?

Is Presuppositional Apologetics an argument from natural knowledge or revealed knowledge? If it is an argument from natural knowledge, then how does it show Christianity to be true?

Isn’t evidence beyond the existence of truth, knowledge, and logic needed to show that Christianity is true?

When would you, if ever, use evidence for the historical reliability of the Gospels and the evidence of the resurrection? Are you opposed to it?

Andy responds to an email he received from a lady claiming that he is CONTRADICTing Jesus by saying other religions are wrong.

Here’s the email:

“Hello! My name is Summer; I’m a woman from Oregon. After reading about the Contradict movement, I do have a couple comments/questions for you. I do believe that you are CONTRADICTing the teachings of Jesus; it seems that you are saying Christianity should be the only religion on planet earth. Thing is, Jesus taught that we need to coexist with everyone on the planet. Matthew 22:39 says to love your neighbor as you love yourself. That’s just one verse out of many of the teachings of Jesus that says to not persecute others based on the things that they have done or are currently partaking in.

If you truly wanted to convert people to Christianity, you would have patience with those that do not agree. Shunning them and telling them their way of thinking is wrong is not how to break through to anyone.

It is very confusing to me that after reading the Bible, and the words of Jesus, that you think “it would be wonderful if you could simply (and legally) replace all those COEXIST bumper stickers with another that reads CONTRADICT.” That’s the opposite of what is expected of Christians.

Christians are “persecuted” because of things like this; it makes it look like you think you are better and above everyone else.

Also, the fact that some people never found Jesus’ skeleton is NOT proof that he ascended into the heavens.”
