God and the Problem of Good

Posted on 21 May, 2015 at 0:50 Comments comments (0)

 

Throughout Christian history, the problem of evil has always been used as an argument against the existence of God.

How do we read the gospels?

Posted on 14 January, 2015 at 10:00 Comments comments (2)

Why do we have four gospels in our Bible? It seems like if the goal is to have the most complete account of Jesus' life and ministry, four separate books would not be the way to go. First of all, the four writers include some of the same stories but each contains stories that are not found in the others.
