2011 Spring Conference: "God, Horrendous Evil, and the Christian Faith"

 

"Nonbelievers insist that the reality of horrendous evils in the world cannot be squared with the Church's confession of a God who is both good and powerful.  The Church also confesses, in the Apostles' Creed, that Jesus "descended into Hell."  But what does the suffering and death of Jesus have to do with natural disasters, genocide, severe disorders and depression, and other horrors of human experience?  What do these things have to do with Jesus, and with the Christian lives of even those who do not suffer in these ways?  And how does the Church respond in the face of horrendous evil?  What is there to say?"


This year's Spring Conference at Reformed Presbyterian Church of Lookout Mountain will be dealing with these questions.

More information forthcoming!
