Great Sermon! I really appreciated this lecture. However, in reference to your comments regarding the Presupositional approach to apologetics:
1. My understanding of the agrument for scripture is framed in such a way, from the presupositional position, in order to avoid any appearance of "neutrality". That is, we presupose the inspiration of scripture when dealing with an unbeliever thereby avoiding the error of answering a fool according to his folly.
2. The Westminster Confession makes it clear that the truth and divinity of scripture can only be recieved by a mind made receptive by the Holy Spirit.
The unbeliever is not in a neutral or receptive condition to believe or accept the truths of scripture and will always, apart from the grace of God, reject whatever argument presented that contradicts his unbelieving worldview.
I belive this why presupositionalists, for the most part, discourage the use of traditional arguments.
Hi Daniel, I have christian radio around my home all day long and even up in my attic... want God's word and song to permeate my property and my presence.. sounds like you are doing the same.

I use my dial up and download sermons to my computer all night. Then let windows play them through my wireless headphones, it broadcasts it 4 acres all around my house, ALL DAY LONG. The one eyed television is dead in my heart and so is the world. King Jesus come quickly, forever you are and forever you will be and we with you ... [/QUOTE]
albert is right downright lies have been told. at the time of the belfast agreement we were told it was right to say no, it wasn't right to place murderers in power. scripture was quoted, sermons were preached from pulpits , prayer meetings were held against the belfast agreement and now this.paisley isn't preaching about naboths vineyard now.
