Mr. Phillips defines the term "epistemologically self-conscious": "To be 'epistemologically self-conscious' is to be aware of your worldview and its implications on life. It is to know how you get from A to Z." In other words, it is to think and act in a way consistent with our Christian faith.

Now we turn to address the problem of the one and the many. Speaking of the ancient Greek philosophers, Mr. Phillips asks the audience to name the "point of interpretation" that gives meaning to the many "things" and "facts" we see and experience around us. The answer for us, as Christians is, as Mr. Phillips says: "Christ is that point of interpretation."

A lot of definitions coming here. Mr. Phillips defines "presupposition" as: "An elementary assumption. A basic commitment. A foundational perspective in which experiences and facts are interpreted."

Several of these presuppositions, which are vital to an epistemologically self-conscious film, include the sovereignty of God, the Lordship of Christ, the depravity of man, the Creation account in Genesis, the fallen nature of this world, etc... To insert my own thought here, which I'm sure Mr. Phillips means to imply: Nearly every single film that comes out of Hollywood blatantly denies each and every one of these Christian presuppositions.
