As ambassadors for Christ, we need wisdom and character in our conversations, but how should we act when we don’t know the answer to a skeptic’s question? Greg explains why sometimes it’s all right to say “I don’t know.”

    There ARE things we can know! Here's why we CAN say, "I do know." https://youtu.be/ph56kXfMScc

    I recall the words of Oliver Cromwell in a letter to the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland – "I beseech you, in the bowels of Christ, think it possible you may be mistaken”.

    Yes, it’s very wrong to say you could be wrong about some things, like God’s existence, or that Scripture is the word of God.

    God says all men know Him and are without excuse (unapologia). That’s why people go to hell. They know with epistemic certainty that God exists, yet they refuse to honor Him.

    03:50. It would've been more helpful to go into the things you believe that you are not mistaken on.

    This was a big miss for STR.

    Truth and falsity is inaccessible from the non biblical worldview. They are inconsistent when they can suggest they can know anything as a fact. We have fundamental truth, they don’t. Yes we can be wrong on some things, but there are things we absolutely can’t be wrong about. Anything in conflict with the Bible is false regardless of the consensus. There can be some common ground with the critic, but not neutrality.

    I had an atheist ask me that exact question, 'could you be wrong about the death and resurrection of Jesus', I said no, because I'm putting my trust in Jesus who is God and cannot lie, I don't see that as epistemic humility to say I could be wrong about the resurrection, as an unshakable delusion, that seems to be playing into the hands of Dawkins' God Delusion argument.
    I'm sorry, Mr. Koukl, but I have to disagree with you on this one.
    Edit: I love your book Tactics by the way.
