Wielding your sword by the blade

For this week’s installment of Pastor Feinstein’s presuppositional apologetics, I actually find a point the Pastor got right. Only one, though—the rest of the time his reasoning is more like a man trying to do battle using a sword with no hilt.

    Wow. These aren’t philosophical arguments at all, but the same old “there has to be a god” with philosophical jargon sprinkled on top. And none of it is logical or consistent. That’s the wrong way to hold a sword!

    Not to make too much of the term, but ‘using a sword by the blade’ is an legit method to fight.


    Example of historical method. Disarming tool and sometimes a blade isn’t what you need but instead an Axe or improvised mace. The hilt does good work there.

    Just sayin….

      It works well enough as a metaphor, though, don’t you think?

      You missed the part where Duncan wrote: using a sword with no hilt.

      It’s hard to bludgeon someone with the hilt of a hiltless sword, whether you’re holding it by the blade or just the bare tang.
