Building a community of love and commitment
in a world of selfishness and pride
These days you’re more likely to see a selfie than a selfless act of service. We live in a culture that deals in the currency of give and take. Unconditional commitment and sacrificial love seem to have disappeared.
The solution isn’t good advice, the solution is the good news of Jesus Christ which saves us from sin’s tyranny in our lives.
St. Stephen Lutheran preaches the historic Christian faith—a faith that has consistently brought love, commitment, and life.
“If God is perfectly loving and all powerful, then why do bad things happen?” This is the so-called “problem of evil” which has troubled Christians of all ages. The problem seems impossible to reconcile, which leads many inside and outside of the church to conclude that God doesn’t not exist, or if he does, that he is some sort of monster.
What can Christians say about the problem of evil? Why do bad things happen? And who is to blame? The only reasonable answer is the one that nobody really wants to hear: bad things happen because we make them happen.
In this session of Sanctuary Studies, Rev. Caleb Bassett will teach about the problematic consequences of human free will and its relationship to the problem of evil. Participants will leave with a deeper understanding of the problem facing mankind and—more importantly—the solution offered in Jesus Christ.
