When someone says, There are no absolutes, my response is often, Are you absolutely sure? I recently heard of a statement made to a missionary that wentWhat makes you think anything you say is true? To which I thought, could the one making that statement apply what he said to what he just said? In both of these examples the individuals position doesnt support itself.
The same is true of Atheism, Naturalism, Secularism, or Materialism. These isms, which exclude the necessity of God, cant support the argument for their truthfulness. Worldviews which dont recognize the Judeo Christian God cant ultimately argue without the pre-conditions for arguing. The pre-conditions for arguing are the laws of logic, which being immaterial, invariant laws of inference cannot be accounted for by these non-God isms. Without God you unknowingly borrow universal non-material laws for intelligible argument to argue for a system which cannot account for universal, non-material preconditions for arguing in the first place. This is another reason we emphasize sound reasoning, logic supported by the great Triune God of the Bible.
Prayer for the Longs: In chapel Mr. Long shared with the students the results from the meeting with the surgeon this morning. The surgeon is arranging for a biopsy of the growth in Mrs. Long’s abdomen. Further treatment will depend on the results of the biopsy. Please continue to be in prayer on their behalf.
