Jason Pratt: July 11, 2017

Join us on Mission 17-19 as we expand our understanding of logical fallacies by observing some recent interactions on social media among Christians over interfaith dialogues with Muslims in a Christian church. It is instructive to note when one side of a discussion resorts to logical fallacy their position is weakened. We look at which fallacies are employed. All this following our launch from Genesis 16:7-13 and our Scriptural Scientist Spotlight coverage of John Wallis, English mathematician, theologian, grammarian, cryptographer, and philosopher!


We delve into James White's interfaith dialogue with a Muslim Imam and Phil Johnson's defense of this behavior. What happens when the defense of both the man and his actions rests on logical fallacy? What if the defense Phil Johnson relies on are the same kinds of arguments that have been used against Phil's own behavior and then dismissed by Phil as attacks? We'll briefly look at some of these as we look inside the church before looking outside as instructed in 1 Corinthians 5:12.

The following links are referenced in this episode and provide additional context to demonstrate a lack of consistency  and reason in regard to Phil Johnson's own criticisms of other Christians and his response to criticism in light of his current behavior regarding criticism of Brannon Howse in defense of James White:

Jason Pratt

Jason is an active duty officer in the U.S. Navy as an Aerospace 

Engineering Duty Officer who holds a Master of Aerospace 

Engineering degree from Georgia Tech University, is a member of 

the Navy’s Space Cadre and was a Navy selectee for astronaut 


It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand the simplicity of the 

gospel of saving grace in Jesus Christ, but Jason’s experience 

and knowledge does make him uniquely qualified to speak on 

both biblical and scientific matters.

As a Naval Flight Officer and a graduate of the United States Naval 

Test Pilot School, Jason has flown over twenty types of fixed wing, 

rotary wing and glider aircraft including: F-14 Tomcat, F/A-18F 

Super Hornet, F-15E Strike Eagle, and F-16D Fighting Falcon.

As an atheist Jason placed his hope in his knowledge and 

achievements, but when Christ saved him he found the freedom 

of new life that surpasses the thrill and excitement of any fighter 

jet he’s ever flown. His testimony is one of turning from his own 

abilities and confidence in himself, and putting his trust and faith 

in Jesus Christ alone.

Jason received his undergraduate degree at Penn State 

University, where he met his wife Sherri. The Pratts have three 

children, and are currently stationed in southern California.

Jason was a self proclaimed and devout atheist until the age of 26. 

He now devotes as much time as possible to the Lord’s service, by 

assisting the chaplains in his commands, volunteering at his church 

and speaking at churches and Christian conferences, encouraging 

believers to be informed by Scripture, bold in their faith and 

courageous in witnessing.
