Great Sermon! I have re-listened to this message about 3000 times and I learn something new each time. Micheal Horton converted me to the Reformation but I just don't know any more.

VERY Important Lecture Many of us have tried to argue for God's existence by pointing to the creation, thinking of the common understanding of Romans 1:20...which does not mean what most think it means. God is not obvious by the creation; God is obvious by the image he manifests in us. To look to the creation is to go the way of which that passage warns.
Dr. Robbins details the many pitfalls of the empiricist postion, particularly the unreliability of the senses. He also exposes the limitations of the empiricist argument for God itself: it doesn't necessarily prove the God of the Bible, and in fact can prove polytheism just as easily. The "watchmaker" argument is examined.
The unmistakable conclusion of this approach is that if it is true, then the Bible is false. Which is why this is such an important lecture for all Christians, especially witnessing ones.

Great Sermon! John W. Robbins is probably the best theologian in the United States today.
He is president of the Trinity Foundation.
The work of the Trinity Foundation is much needed in today's world where almost all of Presbyterianism has departed from Justification by Faith Alone.
He keeps Gordon H. Clark's works available to the public. Clark was the greatest Calvinist theologian and philosopher in the history of North America.
