- How different would this tenet be with speaking to a agnostic/atheist as opposed to a religious Muslim, Mormon, JW, Orthodox Jew? Would evidence like fulfilled prophesy, early testimony to include number of manuscript evidence play a factor? This is my concern with this tenet as it seems to have to many assumptions. Thank youCovenantal Apologetics: Principles and Practice in Defense of Our Faith1. The faith that we are defending must begin with, and necessarily include, the triune God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—who, as God, condescends to create and to redeem.
- Thanks. Just briefly, the tenet requires that we defend the *Christian* faith, no matter what *version* of unbelief we encounter. It does NOT require that we lead with that tenet in our discussions, but that our discussions lead us to the true God. That's the main point. In that context, as I say in the book, evidences, prophesy, etc. could be useful and helpful.
