We receive a number of comments, positive, neutral and negative, to the many postings we place on Creation Revolution. Sometimes it is difficult for us to read all of the comments we receive as we have a number of other duties to tend to.
Towards the end of summer last year, we had a change of duties and responsibilities. With that change over, everyone involved with Creation Revolution thought that someone else was handling the comments. It wasn’t until earlier this year that we realized that was not the case and most of the comments received from August through December were lost. We truly apologize for this and want you to know that we are now making a concerted effort to stay on of the comments and will do our best to handle them within a few days.
Additionally, most of our postings are from other authors and not written by our staff. We do not always agree with everything the other authors write but feel it worth posting for a variety of reasons, one of which is to broach other ideas and views for discussion. Therefore if you want to personally attack the author, we suggest you follow the link provided with the post and do so at the appropriate website. If your comments are directed at myself or one of our featured guest authors (Pastor Gary LW Johnson or Wes Moore), then please feel free to send those comments and questions our way.
It is also not always possible for us to answer all of the questions and comments. Not only am editor-in-chief of Creation Revolution, but I am also involved with six other websites and they all demand my time. I just do not have time to respond to every comment and often find it difficult to respond to any more than one or two.
We need to let everyone know that we claim the right to approve, edit or unapproved any and all comments. We are starting to approve more negative comments than in the past and even some by people that have a different theological view held by our staff. So please understand that just because we allow a comment to post does not necessarily mean that we agree with what it says.
Unfortunately, there are some people that are so hateful, rude and derogatory in their comments that we don’t even waste our valuable time trying to edit them and just trash them. Some of you know who you are and if you want your comments to be posted, clean up your language and stop using such belittling and denigrating names and terms.
I have personally commented to many an evolutionary post on other websites and have never resorted to foul language, calling them degrading names or wrote in a hateful fashion and I expect no less to the comments submitted to this site. If you cannot control your language and manners, you might just as well quit writing as we will just continue to click the ‘Trash’ button and send them to the ethereal garbage heap where they belong.
Therefore, if you would like us to post your comments we ask you to follow a few simple rules:
1. Treat whomever you are commenting about or responding to with respect and common decency.
2. No profanity, derogatory, denigrating or hateful language will be tolerated.
3. Please do not use Creation Revolution to promote your business or website.
4. Patience please. Allow several days for us to process comments. If your comment doesn’t get posted after seven days, please re-examine what and how you wrote and if you still believe it to meet our guidelines, then please feel free to re-submit it to us.
5. Take a few minutes to pray about your comment before sending it in. Earnest prayer often reveals things that we may not have been fully aware and may help temper language and tone of the comment.
We do want you all to know that we truly appreciate your visits to our website and if you would like to see Creation Revolution continue and grow, then please share our site with your family, friends, colleagues, homeschool and Christian school groups as well as your church leaders. Most importantly, please pray for our staff as they do their best to try to provide a variety of information to help you with your own faith and walk with Jesus Christ.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
This book is a compilation of several of Dr. Bahnsen’s published works on Christian apologetics, including his Apologetics syllabus, articles on practical apologetic problems (like the problem of evil, the problem of miracles, etc.), and an exposition of Acts 17.
Especially helpful: In part five, Dr. Bahnsen lists 5 of the most often encountered attacks against Christianity and offers some great rebuttals to them using Presuppositional Apologetics.
An Online Reviewer:
“Many have observed Bahnsen’s ability to debate, and have seen or heard how he has tackled head-on unbelievers in various venues. This work gives us some of the content of what was going through the mind of this notable apologist, whom even John Frame believed was the best debater for Presuppositionalism.
For the astute and willing student, Bahnsen provides the tools in this book to be equipped in their own apologetics with nonbelievers. As one who’s life goal was to “take it to the streets” in applying apologetics rather than just discussing theory, Bahnsen’s insight has also been tested in real debate situation. For instance, his chapter on the problem of evil will illuminate readers as to why he took the approach he did concerning the problem of “evil” in his famous debate with atheist Gordon Stein. His discussion of the problem of miracle and religious language towards the end of the work are also valuable in the apologist’s arsenal, especially for those who take it seriously to be “always ready”, even with the more philosophically sophisticated unbeliever.
The book also treats the reader with a summary of various logical fallacies to look out for which unbeliever typically make, regardless of their range of intellectual ability. Bahnsen’s strength in many of his debates have been his quickness to identify fallacious reasoning, here in this book one can see what these fallacies are for the readers to be conscious of. In my personal life, working hard in applying the lessons found in this book has resulted in some level of fruitfulness in exposing the folly of unbelief.” — Jimmy Li, 2009
