Apologetics and Polemics: P&P Editor Seth Dunn Debates Pantheist Jordan Day

Yesterday, I sat down with my friend, Jordan Day, to informally debate our respective worldviews.  I am a Biblical Christian who affirms the Baptist Faith and Message 2000.  Jordan is a former professing (Southern Baptist) Christian who now holds to Pantheistic Deism.  The topic of the debate was “Why would someone doubt my worldview?”  The one-hour debate took the following format:

  • A short explanation of Pantheistic Deism from Jordan followed by a short explanation of Biblical Christianity from Seth.
  • A short exposition of why someone might doubt the Pantheistic worldview from Jordan followed by a short exposition of why someone might doubt the Biblical Christian worldview from Seth.
  • A series of polemics against each worldview from its opponent followed by an apologetic defenses by its proponent.

The debate, which took place using Google Hangouts, is embedded below.  Hopefully, the topics explored will encourage and edify the body of Christ.
