In this third episode of the Theopologetics Podcast I interview a guest concerning the topic of “presuppositional apologetics,” an approach to apologetics in which one does not attempt to provide evidence that proves the truth claims of Christianity, but rather that the presupposition that God exists is necessary to account for many of the things we instinctively know to be true.

- “Nobody needs arguments for the existence of God. Nobody needs proof that God exists. The Bible teaches that those who claim that God does not exist are merely suppressing what they already know to be true.”
- Epistemology: the branch of philosophy concerned with the nature and scope (limitations) of knowledge.
- Evidential Apologetics: an approach to defending the Christian faith from critics by presenting evidence that God exists.
- Presuppositional Apologetics: an approach to defending the Christian faith from critics by demonstrating that only a biblical world view can account for evidence in the first place.
- Circular Reasoning/Logic: as I’m using it in this episode, appealing to or relying upon something to account for the existence of that very thing; for example, believing that the future will be like the past because the future has in the past been like the past.
