How Suffering Serves to Advance the Gospel

Philippians 1:12-14 - I want you to know, brothers, that what has happened to me has really served to advance the gospel, so that it has become known throughout the whole imperial guard and to all the rest that my imprisonment is for Christ. And most of the brothers, having become confident in the Lord by my imprisonment, … Continue reading How Suffering Serves to Advance the Gospel

Evil is Not a Problem for the Christian

Many believers try to respond to the "problem of evil" argument against God by immediately trying to argue the facts. Facts do exist, which I will show later, but that is not the first step that should be taken. Rather, the issue can best be settled by trying to define our terms. When someone speaks … Continue reading Evil is Not a Problem for the Christian

When Faith is Hard to Find

I called my grandmother on Mother’s Day and enjoyed a wonderful conversation with her.  She has such a bright spirit and an incredible zeal for God. I love listening to her many stories about us growing up, but my favorite stories are those of my mother. You see, my mother passed away from brain cancer … Continue reading When Faith is Hard to Find
