Why Do We Suffer?

  Another title for this piece could be ‘How not to respond to the problem of Evil’. I recently heard someone briefly share the story of Joe Bayly who lost three of his children, (all young), and from this series of tragedies he wrote the book The View from a Hearse. Joe was in the hospital room with his young boy who was dying from leukemia. One friend came in and prayed with Joe, prayed for healing, for strength, understanding and then left. Joe felt nothing from those prayers, they seemed hollow and empty. Not faulting his friend or questioning his sincerity, it just was not...

He could clean things up

Matt Dominick and I were heading back to his house after we had driven up to Twain Harte to help my daughter get out of some snow where she was stuck.

This time I took notes, as well as anyone can take notes in a dark theater. If you have watched this movie, or you are planning on watching it, then take a moment and read this. It will help explain some of the arguments used by both the atheist, Professor Radisson, and the Christian student, Josh Wheaton. This review, (if you can call it that), is far from exhaustive in covering the logical...

Doubt

Doubt. If Christian is honest, that is something we all have had in our Christian walk. Despite my readings in the past couple years on apologetics, which does not mean apologizing for our faith, but defending our faith, doubt still creeps in. William Lane Craig shares a story in his book, Hard Questions, Real Answers about a student who came up to him after class one day and said, “How come everything you say confirms what my pastor taught?” Somewhat taken aback by this comment Dr. Craig replied, “Why shouldn’t it?” The questioning student replied, “Well, all the other professors in my...
