It is interesting to come across some very presuppositional teaching from people who don’t really fly the flag and I like to note it when I do. August 10, 2014 “For the Love of God” devotional by D. A. Carson was one such devotional. I especially appreciated his call for people to be precise about the use of the Psalm 14:1 and Romans 1. I think it is a good reminder for us all as it seems like much of the recent popular apologetics billing itself as “presuppositional” is more about the misapplying these passage by simply calling people fools …Read more
Chat channel regular cco3 has been hard at work since the launch of his website True Iglesia making short articles to address the various claims made by the Filipino organization known as the Iglesia ni Cristo. Be sure to share them, especially with your Filipino friends.Read more
A regular in our chatroom has created a new tract for bringing the gospel to the Iglesia ni Cristo. I think a lot of it could be used in discussion with Roman Catholics too, as odd as it sounds some Iglesia ni Cristo arguments are very Roman Catholicesque.
Check it out here: http://www.trueiglesia.org and share with your Filipino friends (believer or unbeliever).…Read more

I was directed the other day to a post by an Iglesia Ni Cristo apologist (hereafter INC) where he tackles John 1:1 and specifically denies that the “Word” in John 1:1 is a person. The author quotes a Greek lexicon to say logos means a concept or idea. Then proceeds to apply that to John 1:1.
Therefore, in view of the definition given above, what was with God in the beginning was His concept, a plan or an idea (logos) about the Christ who would be coming into the world.
Ok, that is pretty easy to follow. …Read more

I came across a very good post discussing the rise of of some popular level apologetic methodology that tries to brand itself as Van Tilian presuppositionalism but is really just an impostor.

Someone pointed me to the following quote on facebook yesterday:
The Baptist is inherently an evidentialist. They must look to subjective always changing evidence to prove covenant membership.
A Presbyterian assumes an objective, universal standard for membership that can be known with certainty.
A Baptist cannot claim certainty.
Granted, this is a non-sequitur in its own right as it stands. It seems to be a post meant to start what those of us who have been around Internet discussions a while call a “flame war” about the subject of baptism in some purported presuppositionalist sub-group. I choose to ignore that …Read more
