Greg Bahnsen was debating a hostile atheist in a university in California. The man asked a question that was a great blunder.
“Is your God invisible and immaterial?”
“Yes, He is.”
“Can you tell me of anything else that is invisible and immaterial and real?”
“Yes,” replied Bahnsen, “the laws of logic.”
The audience broke out into an enthusiastic applause. The atheist was unable to recover from his mistake the rest of the debate.
The well-known social critic Dennis Pager, debating the Oxford atheistic professor Jonathan Glover, raised this thorny question: “If you, Professor Glover, were stranded at the midnight hour in a desolate Los Angeles street and if, as you stepped out of your car with fear and trembling, you were suddenly to hear the weight of pounding footsteps behind you, and you saw ten burly young men who had just stepped out of a dwelling coming toward you, would it or would it not make a difference to you to know that they were coming from a Bible study?”
Amidst hilarious laughter in the auditorium, Glover conceded that it would make a difference.
