“Truth either is or it isn’t”
I haven’t been watching as many videos lately, but did Wretched denounce some of their views on Christianity while I was gone?
Dan has a point though, we don’t know the full truth of existence. We only know from what we are able to test and experience. Even if you follow the Bible from the typical Wretched stance on it – we still can’t know what God’s reasoning is for it all, or if God may even be a part of something greater. How can we possibly even begin to comprehend something or someone having always have existed?
Cool science update recently though, macro evolution has now been observed in fossils/skeletons. Raptor dinosaurs to birds. The findings came out a couple months ago. Thank God that 2+2=4 in our perception of reality or we would have a difficult time learning such things about our history!
I’ll be direct ,you whole premise is base on you presupposition and world view.
And it’s a bit of a straw men,argument, but why..?
You are making an absolute statement in regards to a matter that you by you own admission, are not sure of!
By you saying that we can’t, know for sure about God, and even if we follow the bible,
Is an contradiction, you can’t say something absolute, about something that you can’t test or experience, and you don’t know everything there is to know about,
This according to your own admission. ..
Never the less ,God can positively be proof and also test and experience, and also there is a way we can know what His plan is and also we can know, what His point of view is,God has indeed spoken! we can know absolute truth ,it’s writen in His Holy Word….
Now that you are willing to believe it ! That is a whole different issue, but saying that there is no way we can’t know for sure! That is just absolutely not true….!!!
God’s has spoken by revealing Him self to us,in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ, and He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness this according to His Law,( the 10 Commandments) if you ever lie or lust or misuse the Name of God ,or broken any other of His Laws ,you will face Him on judgement Day…now weather you believe it or not,don’t matter but remember ither this is true or not, and that’s also an absolute, and remember that faith does not create reality, you cant say you don’t believe in gravity, but that doesn’t change the fact! That if you jump off, a 50 stories building, it will kill you weather you believe it or not. ..
It’s not so much a presupposition if you’ve already explored the belief in question and recognized that there is hardly even consensus between Christians as to what Biblical “truth” is – let alone the actual full truth of our existence. Remember, it wasn’t all that long ago that Christian belief included the Sun circling around the Earth. Evolution is the current issue of truth that many Christians are slow and hesitant to find understanding in.
As you mentioned, presupposition can put one in a difficult place to accept a contrary truth. Religion tends to be exactly that, a presupposition – and one that is usually held on to proudly. You can get an idea of the troubles of pride right in the Bible itself.
