The Origin of Postmodernism According to Scripture

The Word, Power, and the Marginalization of Others by the “Powers that Be” As I’ve tried to show in my other posts on Emergianity (i.e. the Emergent “Church” [Religion]), postmodern thought seeks to subvert orthodoxy in order to establish unorthodoxy. This is done by a deconstructive process, whereby language is stripped of any fixed meaning so that all meanings are… (more…)

How to Deal with Emergianity (Pt.2)

[Continued from Emergianity] How to Never Say Anything After thoroughly dismantling the linguistic theories of the prominent analytical philosophers and liberal theologians of his day by exposing how logically inconsistent with themselves these theories were, philosopher Gordon H. Clark wrote: There is indeed a way for these people to avoid logical difficulties, paradox, and analogy. To quote one of them:… (more…)

How to Deal with Emergianity (Pt.1)

What is “Emergianity”? Before we can know how to deal with Emergianity, we need to define Emergianity. In a word, Emergianity is what is commonly called “the Emergent Church Movement.” Since the Emergent Church Movement is neither a church nor a Christian movement, at least in any Biblical sense, I feel like I have a moral responsibility to not call… (more…)

In particular, these critics claim that Paul’s pneumatology (i.e. “his” theology of the Holy Spirit) is… (more…)

This philosophical dilemma derives its name from a Platonic dialogue which bears the same name as its title. Socrates, in Plato’s dialogue, asks Euthyphro: “Is the pious loved by the gods because it is pious, or is… (more…)

Atheistic Arguments: Attacks on the Character of God (Pt.2)

[Continued from Part 1] II. The Argument from Insufficient Evidence against the Existence of God Another way in which I sought to deny the God of Scripture was by claiming that there simply wasn’t enough evidence to prove His existence. My argument ran something like this: Major Premise: If an all good, all powerful, and all knowing God exists, then… (more…)

Atheistic Arguments: Attacks on the Character of God (Pt.1)

Arguments Against the Existence of God? Think Again… When I was an atheist, the mere suggestion that my unbelief could be the result of a grudge that I was holding against God would infuriate me. My mother, best friend, and other concerned Christians who were constantly trying to get me to see the errors of ways would often reduce my… (more…)
