Letter Writer Highlights–Are We Drifting Away?

Share

Dear Editor,

There is no truth to this—so you will say—if in fact you do not believe in God, Jesus Christ and his rule book the Bible.
But and So—with that said —-let me also inject this —-There is no Neutrality in what your basic Presuppositions are and what your Worldview is—-The how you see things and the belief you hold are fixed—-these fixations guiding your worldview—–will be truths you believe to be true.
With that said—-to the point;
Sinful man cannot reason, nor logically unite perception with what is perceived in the reality of what is scriptural truth.  This reasoning with its logic—-is deeply corrupted through Adam’s Sin/fall and is known as the—Noetic Effect of Sin.  (Matthew 13:13  “…because they seeing, see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.”  King James Bible
Greg Bahnsen (1948-1995) book Pushing the Antithesis 2007* —-says this:
“Contrary to the grievously impoverished theology in much of modern evangelicalism, the Scriptures teach what is known as the Noetic effect of sin. Noetic is derived from the Greek word Nous, which means mind.  This is one aspect of the doctrine of Total Depravity , which declares that the fall reaches deep down into a man’s very being, even to his mind, his reasoning processes.
He goes on:
“The Noetic effect of sin (the depravity of man’s intellect) does not imply for VanTil,** that the believer cannot have a keen intellect.  He may be very smart indeed, and thus all the more dangerous to himself and others.  Depravity gives a distorted and destructive orientation to the sinner’s mental functions.
**(One of Bahnsen’s professors at Westminster Seminary Philadelphia—VanTil developed the concept of Presupportional Apologetic)
There is a serious need for the church to get back to explaining this thing called Sin, Evil, and Total Depravity.  What this does to man’s Understanding and what it is to understand right and wrong.  There are close to 300 uses of the Greek form of the word Understand in the Bible.  We have slipped so far as to not understand violence, corruption and the liberal, progressive anything goes—-mental attitude—can only—–will only—–lead to this darkness that is just below the surface—-in the mind of man.
The sooner man understands the depth of his problem—-the sooner God and Jesus Christ will have mercy on America— we must pray there is mercy up ahead or I am afraid there will be more Black Sundays—as Texas saw.

Randy Toman, Berks County
