    Can anyone who knows the reformed tradition explain to me what an innate knowledge of God, which unbelievers supress, actually involves? So are, for example, Platonists suppressing the knowledge of God? Or just adding Things to their knowledge. What About Hindu’s? Or does the knowledge of God that is innate to all humans mean the God of the bible? How much specifically are all humans are supposed to know innately?

    This podcast more than any others distinguishes Theology from Philosophy.
    If “mystery is the lifeblood of Theology” then maybe “clarity is the lifeblood of Philosophy”

    What I have never found appealing in systematic theology is that it tends to make this grande pronouncements on doctrinal issues then simply stop there. What philosophy helps to demonstrate, is that those specific pronouncements are but some of many alternatives.

    Good conversation … but, it was a reminder that being a Trinitarian is not about being “rational” when confronted with making logical sense of scripture or one’s theological preferences. Validating the Trinity doctrine definitely takes a different approach.
