I often read in the works of different apologists (specifically American ones for some reason) that what they are defending is a "biblical worldview". I would like to submit that this is a bad label to use. Christian apologists are giving a defense of a Christian worldview, not a biblical worldview. A biblical worldview comes with an Ancient Near Eastern worldview and is often quite different than what apologists espouse. For the sake of honesty it would be best to defend a Christian worldview. We are Christians of the 21st century, we have over 2000 years of church history behind us, shaping our beliefs, and we readily reinterpret biblical teaching in our modern cultural context. It is time we put our misguided biblolatry behind us and confess in honesty and humility our Christian convictions.
This is a blog for anyone to see what we are up to and to discuss philosophical matters. Feel free to comment, the only rule being that you are civil and respectful to other bloggers commenting. If you would like to post an entry on the blog please let the blogmaster (Ryan Turnbull) know.
