There has been a website set up for the late Edmund P. Clowney, the influential Reformed theologian who recently passed away. Although the site is still under construction, it is shaping up to be a significant one dedicated to a significant man of God.
This is something that we’ll have to keep our eyes on.

Tota Reformanda: Is Christian Theism True?


There is much to commend in
Cornelius Van Til’s thought. Many philosophers and theologians throughout the past century have found various aspects of Van Tillian philosophy particularly helpful.
Some, such as
John Frame, look particularly to Van Til’s melding of apologetics and dogmatics as being his most significant insight. Others, like The Chalcedon Foundation guys, take Van Til’s “total submission” of all worldviews to Christ as a hallmark.
I my opinion, and I think that the above mentioned would agree, Dr. Van Til’s “
Copernican Revolution” in apologetics is a result of his “transcendental argument” that establishes the truth claims of Bible, wholly and completely. It is this thinking that provides the basis of all of his thought. This is the philosophical centre of Van Til’s apologetic.
Greek philosophy, such as that of Aristotle, saw that certain ideas(transcendentals) were irrefutable (i.e. law of non-contradiction) because by attempting to refute them, they are established. Transcendental arguments have been used throughout the history of philosophy, but were significantly developed by Immanuel Kant in his Critique of Pure Reason.
Van Til took the idea of transcendentals from the philosophers and applied it to God, realizing that by trying to disprove the existence of the Biblical God, one actually establishes it. The “impossibility of the contrary” finds its greatest fulfillment in the Christian God.
The above-linked article is good for those wanting to understand Van Til’s transcendental argument. It was a good read, easy to understand and helpful. For any seeking to embibe an apologetic method that is philosophically sound, utterly true and self-consciously biblical, this article is a good place to start.

Hugh Hewitt: September 25, 2005 – October 01, 2005 Archives

Phew!

Hugh Hewitt sticks it to the man in his recent post on MSM, their coverage of Katrina, and CBS’ “Journo-blogs.” There couldn’t have been a better refutation of all three.

I am absolutely thrilled that the blogosphere has actually brought some credibility back into journalism.

Judgment makes a mockery of religious freedom – Malaysiakini

The courts in Malaysia won’t let Lina Joy change her identity card from “Islam” to “Christian” now that she has been converted. This will result in problems for her when she goes to worship in a Christian church. The government recognizes her as a Muslim, though she is not, and can penalize her for going into a non-Muslim place of worship.

Toronto Intelligent Design Conference

The Toronto I.D. Conference Committee: Medicine, Science and Faith InterestGroup
cordially invite you to
Documentary Presentation
Unlocking the Mystery of Life (The Origin of Life, The Discovery Institute)
With commentary by: Kirk Durston
Thursday, September 29, 2005 at 7:30 – 9:30 pm
University of Toronto, The Medical Science Building,
AlumniLounge, Room 3159
1 King’s College Circle, Toronto
Refreshments will be served
~”Unlocking the Mystery of Life” explores what DNA reveals about the origin of life – documents how scientists are abandoning naturalistic explanations for the origin of genetic information and looking to theories of design for answers. In almost every scientific discipline there is new found evidence that supports the theory of intelligent design. For instance, in molecularbiology, the presence of information encoded along the DNA molecule has suggested the activity of a prior designing intelligence. The DVD showcases the progress design scientists are making in this field. The program has aired in every top 20 market in the country including PBS stations in California, Colorado, Florida, Maryland, Michigan, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Washington state and Washington, DC. The program follows the efforts of contemporary scientists who are advancing a powerful, but controversial, idea — the scientific theory of “intelligent design.” A growing number of scientists around the world no longer believe that natural selection or chemistry, alone, can explain the origins of life. Instead, they think that the microscopic world of the cell provides evidenceof purpose and design in nature — a theory based upon compelling biochemical evidence.*

The Chalcedon Foundation – Faith for All Life

David Allan Black has a good article on why Jesus Christ must be preached as Lord. The opening line of his article sets the tone for what follows, “The dawn of the third millennium has seen discernment fly out of the Christian window.” So much evangelical preaching today is done without considering the Lordship of Christ.

Black calls for preaching seasoned with the call for repentance and faith.

This is a very thoughtful article that I would recommend reading. It’s not long, so it won’t take up too much of your time! I was surprised to see that the author of my first year Greek textbook is writing for the Chalcedon Foundation!

Lost in wonder, love and grace

Fellow TBS student Tom Gee has a very thoughtful blog that I’d like to recommend. I’ve only had the opportunity to chat with him once before chapel, but I’m looking forward to more conversations (see his blog on being Reformed and being a conversationalist!) in the future.
