What you didn’t want to tell about the “4 views thing” is at the end of the audio,… looks like you forgot to clip it… unless that was a bonus
Yes, that was our unintended gift to you. It looks like my subconscious wanted to let people know about it after all. That portion has since been cut from the episode, but the “early birds” are going to have that bonus at the end of their copies.
The Christ and Culture project we’re working on is quite interesting. It’s turning out well and I’ll be recording round two over the next couple of weeks. Hopefully the pre-show chatter and some of the post-show comments weren’t too grating on the ears.
I was wondering if that was supposed to be attached or not. In any case, I’m very excited about it. Thanks for doing that.
It has since been removed, but the cat is out of the bag.
I appreciated this episode. Two questions:
1) The fellow who said he uses materials by Vos and Van Til with junior-high kids — what does he use? What sort of questions do these kids ask, that are handled so well by Vos and Van Til? Is there some kind of juvenile-level book of Vos and Van Til, suitable for kids to understand? If so, I need those for my own study. Some kind of “Vos and Van Til For Dummies.” Seriously. I tried reading Van Til’s “Christianity and Barthianism.” It was very frustrating. It was mostly incomprehensible to me. And your guest said “Vos is the one who makes Van Til work.” So I need to read whatever it is that Vos wrote, that makes Van Til work. What is it?
2) Camden, you said that you had many questions throughout your undergrad years that you were not getting answers to, until you discovered Van Til. What were the questions, and how did Van Til’s approach answer them for you?
To keep it brief, I had questions about the truth of Scripture, its authority and how we know that God exists and that Christianity is true. Van Til’s transcendental approach and solid foundation in reformed systematic theology is what helped me the most. But perhaps what sealed the deal for me much later was Van Til’s treatment of the philosophical problem of the one-and-many.
I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them. For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites, and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naïve.
