Presuppositional Apologetics: The Correct Way to Defend the Christian Faith

February 16, 2022
For The King
For The KingRocky Ramsey

This Wednesday I have Bryce as my guest again! We walk through the presuppositional method for defending the Christian faith. We base a lot of this material off of a book by Dr. Greg Bahnsen called Always Ready: Directions for Defending the Faith. You can pick up the book here. We hope this episode equips you to defend the faith and destroy the god's of this age like secularism, evolutionary theory, feminism, and the like! Go to battle Christian warriors! You've been made a new creation and have been given a new mind, do not use the old mans ways of defending the faith with vain philosophy! 

"but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect" - 1 Peter 3:15 

"We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ" - 2 Corinthians 10:5

Key Texts:  

* Isaiah 1:18-20 

* Colossians 2:2-5 

* Psalm 119:160 

* Proverbs 26:4-5 

* Proverbs 1:7,22,29 

* Romans 1:18 

* Acts 17 & 26 

* 1 Timothy 6:20 

My guest joining me this week is my brother Bryce. Bryce just finished his undergraduate degree in philosophy and recently started his MDiv. from Covenant Baptist Theological Seminary. He hopes, if the LORD wills it, to be a pastor shepherding Gods people one day.
