Today I was shown the first part of the William Lane Craig versus Christopher Hitchens debate. Before Craig begins to present his case, he mentions that he welcomes those who “check their view at the door”. This allegedly allows for an “objective” position from which to evaluate argument and evidence.
Unfortunately for Craig, no such position exists. He is only entitled to disagree with this claim if he rejects what is set forth in the Christian worldview with respect to the issue. This is God’s world and we are made in the image of God. Christian teaching is that Christ is Lord of all, including even our thought.
If the Christian worldview is true then Christ is Lord of all.
According to Craig, Christ is not Lord of all.
Therefore according to Craig, the Christian worldview is not true.
Now obviously Craig holds that the Christian worldview is true and he seeks to prove portions of it. The point here is not that Craig is actually an unbeliever, but rather that even before Craig begins his arguments he undercuts them all and concedes the debate with his methodology.
No Dr. Craig, I will not cease submitting to Christ as Lord in my thought.
No Dr. Craig, I cannot do so even if I willed to, as all wisdom and knowledge is found in our Lord Jesus Christ.
