Natural-ly There Is A Problem With Evil

By Alex McElroy One of the most difficult issues to reconcile in life is the presence of evil. This is the case whether one has a theistic, agnostic or atheistic worldview. The existence of evil is undeniable both in our witness and experience but is evil objective in nature or merely an apparition. Even atheist J.L. Mackie recognized a dilemma. In one book, he writes, “There are no objective values.”[1] Elsewhere, he writes, “We might well argue…that objective, intrinsically prescriptive...

Putting God on Trial

Putting God on Trial

By Al Serrato “I can’t believe in a God who would allow so much evil and suffering in the world.” Have you encountered this challenge?

Outside of Abraham, Moses is probably...

How Jeremiah 29:11 is Far Better When You Properly Interpret It

By Brian Chilton Certain verses in the Bible have become so popularized that they are often removed from their context. In so doing, the biblical passage loses the impact that it holds. Worse yet, the text may be given a message that it never intended to carry. Jeremiah 29:11 is one such example. The verse is a promise of God which states, “For I know the plans I have for you’—this is the Lord’s declaration—‘plans for your well-being, not for...
