Andy received a Facebook message from a follower of his Contradict – They Can’t All Be True page that asked his thoughts on how to respond to the question, “Why Don’t Christians Care More About their Sins?”  This episode of Reconnect gives a lengthy response to this question, weaving in various Youtube videos that feature Alistair Begg, R.C. 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?
