Apologetics Posts

In preparation for Saturday’s workshop, I’m posting an index of the Apologetics related posts that were done earlier this year. Just click on each of the topics below to be taken to the relevant post.

NCFCA Labeled Posts: A listing of all NCFCA-related posts on this blog.

Cat. 1, SA 1: 1. Analyze and respond to the statement, “The existence of God and of a future life is everywhere recognized in Africa.” David Livingstone

-Cat. 2, Def 2: Explain the meaning and significance of verbal, plenary inspiration of Scripture. (For a more advanced discussion of this subject, consider this post: Goodrick on Inspiration)

-Cat. 2, Def. 5: Explain the meaning and significance of higher criticism and lower criticism. (Technically, I don’t have a post dedicated to this subject, but the work I did on KJV-Only has a lot to do with the history of textual criticism (a.k.a. lower criticism), so you might find some direction in these posts.)

    Hi again!

    I can’t speak for Nathan, but I was working on a related project and just thought I’d post my findings. Then it kind of spun out of control :-)

    The truth of the matter is, I just love this stuff. I’m just hoping that it will help you and your friends.

    It must be my INTJ personality and the need for closure… I had researched some of these questions for the apologetics group at my house, and decided if David could put up some research, I ought to contribute, too, and make it comprehensive. If only to show how deep you can go. Research wipes the fog from the window to see another world past or future. It was really exciting to find out what sparked the quotes originally, before they became dry briquettes for our fileboxes.
