The Dialectic and Biblical Truth


Hats off to Phil Johnson over at Pyromaniacs. In today's post, Phil decries the growing inability of evangelicals to discern truth. It seems they've been influenced too much by dialectical thinking rather than by biblical thinking. As Phil puts it . . .

I'm afraid too many people take that approach with the problem of discerning truth. They take a dialectical approach, where you resolve every issue by seeking the middle ground between two opposing extremes—as if you could combine an erroneous thesis and its equally erroneous antithesis and come up with a synthesis that is somehow true.

Well said. This deserves to be printed for a billboard and posted along interstate highways across America.
