Cornelius Van Til – Bible Based Theism

11 Jul

Van Till

To engage in philosophical discussion does not mean that we begin without Scripture. We do not first defend theism philosophically by an appeal to reason and experience in order, after that, to turn to Scripture for our knowledge and defense of Christianity. We get our theism as well as our Christianity from the Bible.

    I like this statement of Van Til, but in strict apologetics, I am not sure he always got the job done there? A friendly statement too! Note John Frame’s criticism of his “father” in the faith! (See his book: Cornelius Van Til, An Analysis of His Thought, P&R, 1995)
