How Should a Christian Relate to War?

War. It is a fact of life. According to Dr. Terry Fields, in the last 3,421 years of recorded history, there have been only 268 years without war. This should tell us something significant about the fallen nature of man. What it doesn’t tell us is how we as Christians should view war. Should we support it? Should we participate in it? Should we oppose it? Just as there are many denominations of Christians, there are many differing answers to this particular question of Christian Conscience.

Should We Forgive God? (Part II)

There are many views of the character of God. Some see Him as angry, wrathful and impatient, while others see Him as just, loving and merciful. Whatever your view of His character, it is certain that we live in a world where things are NOT fair and people by the MILLIONS suffer for things they did not do. So, what does that do to our understanding of God? If He is all powerful and all wise, why does He allow such injustice, suffering and chaos? Has God abandoned us? Has He forgotten us? Does He even care about us? Did God make mistakes with His creation – did He create a world that “got away from Him” and now it’s too late to change things? Stay with us as we look into the myriads of difficulties in our world and try to understand where God is in all all of this. Should we forgive God? Is it even our place to forgive God?

Did God EVER Advocate Slavery?

It seems that for all of the recorded history of man, there has been slavery in one form or another.  Today when we look upon this subject, it is often with sadness and disgust that at one time, not so very long ago in our own country, we as a people allowed such a practice to flourish.  Not only did we let it flourish, but there were those who insisted it was a God-sanctioned practice, therefore justifiable!  What is the truth on this matter?  Does God or did God ever advocate such a practice?  On this podcast we look into the biblical history of slavery and servitude.
