Conclusion as Presuppositional Standard

“the apologist must presuppose the truth of God’s word from start to finish in his apologetic witness. It is only to be expected that, in matters of ultimate commitment, the intended conclusion of one’s line of argumentation will also be the presuppositional standard that governs one’s manner of argumentation for that conclusion – or else the intended conclusion is not his ultimate standard after all.”

(Bahnsen, Van Til’s Apologetic, 2-3)
