When bad things happen

Let’s continue this series on suffering on the philosophical level.  It’s necessary on an intellectual level, but these words are not for grieving people at a funeral.  Ministering with those who are hurting will be addressed later. When philosophically addressing the issue of theodicy–the issue of God’s justice amid evil and suffering–another question often comes up: “Why [&hellip

Evil and God’s existence

Let’s start this series on suffering by addressing it on the philosophical level, and then approach it from the personal level.  Obviously, in the face of someone who just lost a loved one, these intellectual arguments for God’s existence would seem uncaring and cold.  That is not the time for them.  This defense of the [&hellip

The truth: We sinned, He saved us

In 1 Corinthians 9:22-23, the Apostle Paul said, “I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some.”  Paul knew the truth–the eternal stakes that were on the line. And Paul also knew the heart of God; he said it best in 1 Timothy 2:3-4–“This is good, and [&hellip

Evangelism in this Post-Modern age (Part 5)

The best witnessing comes when you allow a person to examine their worldview’s starting assumption, then look at their philosophy of what’s real, and their ethics on how to live, and then ask them to check their worldview with the real world around them. Do they believe that there’s no God? How do they know [&hellip

Evangelism in this Post-Modern age (Part 4)

Beliefs can be useful yet false; for instance, take the belief in Santa Claus. Telling children to be good so Santa will bring presents on Christmas has a certain usefulness to it, but there is no one actually coming down the chimney.
