The Purpose of This Blog



Originally this blog was supposed to be about Miscellaneous and insignificant blog posts. But it evolved to be a supplement to my main apologetics blog Gospel Crumbs. In fact, there are more posts in this blog on apologetics than there are there.

  1. AP,

    Hello, this is "Pip Brandy" from our dialogues on Triablogue. I got this site by following the links you embedded, I hope this is fine. I just wanted to follow up on that mp3 of Bahnsen that you suggested. I did listen to it. I'm not sure I hand't heard it before, but if I did, it was some time ago and my context has changed sufficiently that it was at least informative.

    Anyhow, since Triablogue seems to have a 6- or 7-day limit to comments, as well as not to clog up their site, I thought we might try following-up "off-line" as it were, on a blog of your choice, or even by email. Let me know!

    Thanks!

    1. Honestly, I don't have much more to contribute other than the following two Van Til quotes. BTW, I've just created a post of some of my favorite Van Til quotes in my blogpost here:
      https://quotesandreferences.blogspot.com/2017/11/cornelius-van-til-quotes.html

      This does not at all mean that Scholasticism has made no advance in details. Nor does it in the least minimize the greatness of the intellectual labor displayed in the movement as a whole. It only means that we cannot turn back to Scholasticism as Rome today is doing, in order to find a solution for the epistemological difficulties of the day.- - Cornelius Van Til, A Survey of Christian Epistemology, p. 64


      On the contrary, the Christian theist must claim that he alone has true knowledge about cows and chickens as well as about God. He does this in no spirit of conceit, because it is a gift of God's grace. Nor does he deny that there is knowledge after a fashion that enables the non-theist to get along after a fashion in the world. This is the gift of God's common grace, and therefore does not change the absoluteness of the distinction made about the knowledge and the ignorance of the theist and the non-theist respectively.- Cornelius Van Til, A Survey of Christian Epistemology, p. 222

      If there's anything more specific you'd like me to address I'll try to do that, but I think I've addressed most of what I could regarding the concerns you've listed in the original blogpost. Presumably you already know about the website http://www.vantil.info/.
