Saturday-13 August 2005

Had an average sleep last night. Naturally woke up at 8 am before taking bath and teeth brushing. Checked up Geisler's view on Jacques Derrida from BECA before looking into William Lane Craig's view on apologetics in the Counterpoint series. Was thinking to have coffee with a fren, but she has to attend some birthday dinner. Went for lunch at Tan Boon Liat building and met Ben from SKS. We talked about the some liberals movement and was joined by Simon, another staff from SKS.

Simon made a negative remark on the pursue of Xtian intellectualism which inevitably was criticised by me. Obligated not to disown a brother over intellectual matters, i submited to his frustrated fideism. Without any grudge, we walked to his workplace and headwards to our business.

Curiously, i picked up Alister Mcgrath's Scientific Theology, desired to acquire some insight onto the subject, while exploring a rather different view on theology.

Then to apologetic session to pick up William Lane Craig's Reasonable Faith to satisfy my curiousity on the conclusion chapter titled "The Ultimate Apologetic".

It was surprising that the ultimate apologetic, according to Craig, isnt any academical matter but this:

"...The ultimate apologetics: Your life!"


Striked me deep down all the way to the toe nail. I thought that Craig would have thought of some apologetic methods that is ultimate in academic arena, but i was wrong. It wasnt any academia but life itself is the ultimate method to apologise. *sigh* Supreme Systematic Apologetics still?

I think, if God is willing, i would have another strange conversation later.

Did you notice that if you switch places between 3 and 1 of August, voila! you get a revamped blog on 31 August 2005- a significant date to a Malaysian indeed!

May you have a contemplative Merdeka celebration in where you are, amid a quiet one. :)
