Is neutrality possible?

Richard Pratt writes in Every Though Captive (1979) that sometimes sense experience is suggested as a sphere of neutrality . “It is supposed,” he says, ” that the non-Christian sees and hears the same things the Christian does and that there is therefore a neutral ground on which to operate.  Even so, we must remember that both may be exposed to the same information, Christians are committed to understanding that information as it is in light of God’s revelation, and non-Christians are committed to misconstruing the world in terms of their allegiance to independence (59).”
