On Spelling out the Ramifications of a Defeater Belief
The Great Transition
Even those most convinced of their alienation from God are not able to present their condition in the way Paul does at the beginning of Ephesians 2. We ought to work on reflecting back people's defeater beliefs with a clarity that they can seldom if ever match. The truth in any argument or mode of argument cannot ultimately lead to a denial of the truth. It is not against truth that man in sin should be convinced that he is dead to God and it is helpful to those who know that they are alive to God to remember that once they were dead.
