  • WHY FREE WILL?

    God grants us free will so that we can choose to love, or… not. For some, the high price of evil outweighs the benefits of free will.

  • WHY SUFFER?

    If heaven is nothing but fun, easy, breazy livin’ what purpose can there be in any suffering we experience here on earth?

  • ETERNAL PUNISHMENT?

    Hell. It’s an ugly place but most people, Christians included, have a pop-culture view of Hell, not a biblical one.

  • WHY ADAM'S SIN?

    If you’re a good person, nothing bad should happen to you, right?

  • THE UNEVANGELIZED?

    Those who have never heard the good news of the gospel. Will they go to hell simply for not knowing?

  • ETERNAL WHAT?

    Eternity, a scary word for humans who are bound within the safe confines of time where everything is marked by small manageable chapters.

“I did not expect what Dr Jones pointed out about why God has allowed evil to exist in our world. I think I learned that there is a principle God is operating by. A principle that we can do well to learn and one that applies to much in life. The principle being, God does not judge Satan, fallen angels, or sinful man immediately. He exercises mercy, grace, and in man's case, forgiveness for whom he chooses. God did not wipe out the rebellious angels or man immediately, so He could demonstrate His amazing grace and forgiveness accomplished at the crorss. Likewise, we do not have to judge and condemn others for wronging us immediately. We can demonstrate mercy, grace, and forgiveness toward them and win them for the Gospel with kindness. ”
