A Criticism of Presuppositionalism
During my short mission trip to Utah I met two Christian evangelists that criticized the presuppositional methodology because it "confuses" epistemology with metaphysics. As I pounder this criticism I know that both epistemology and metaphysics are distinct, however, they cannot be seperated for they are interdependent. The question is answered in the ontological Trinity. God knows all things. He is the one that gave meaning to all things, created all things, and sustains all things. Thus one cannot truly know anything without knowing God despite man supressing the truth in unrighteoussness (Romans 1:17-24).
