Is All Reasoning Circular Reasoning?

By David Pallman

Circular reasoning is generally understood to be fallacious. The reason for this is that circular arguments assume what they purport to prove.

Is the Bible Our Highest Authority?

Many Christians believe that it is wrong to offer unbelievers evidence for the truth of Christianity.[1] They argue that the traditional method of apologetics dishonors Scripture by not giving it the respect it is due.

Book Review: Justification Without Awareness

The Imperfect Vote

By Phil Bair

I have serious concerns about Andy Crouch’s article in Christianity Today from several  years ago entitled Speak Truth to Trump excoriating Trump as though he was the anti-christ, not the least of which is the fallacy that all government officials must by their very nature be guilty of idolatry. Since Crouch is bringing this point … Continue reading The Imperfect Vote
