Is Forgiveness Really Necessary?

We all know that Jesus taught us to forgive. If your brother trespasses against you seven times in a day, Jesus says to forgive. Okay, while this may be difficult, we can see its value and strive to live up to that standard. But, but what about when someone commits a horrible crime – what about when someone guns down in cold blood, innocent God fearing people in church – at a Bible study? Is the same lesson of forgiveness relevant? Do the teachings of Jesus include forgiving those who are simply and purely evil in their actions?

Does God Even Care?

Just a few short days ago, the unthinkable happened – again.  For no sane reason, a 23-year-old young man went on a shooting spree at Virginia Tech University.  The results were horrific, as 32 people were gunned down.  Words cannot express the sorrow and pain that is a result of this senseless act.  Sadly, this is not the first time and likely will not be the last time  such an event occurs. Some of the never-ending questions at such times are – where was God?  Why did He allow such senseless evil?  Couldn’t He have stopped it? Does God even care?  Does God even care – this is the question that, if answered, puts the others in perspective.  On this podcast we search to see just how much the Almighty does care.
