David Bowman wrote (as information, not espousing the argument): "I suspect
that if the speaker had a biblical basis for avoiding philosophy, it may
have been regarding Col. 2:8 and maybe I Cor. 1:20,21."

Those couple verses, torn from their context, might be a "proof text." If
someone were to tell me they were a "biblical basis," I would have
difficulty with that. If I were a non-Christian, I'd take it to mean "turn
off my brain at the church door."

Thanks for pointing out the specific references.
