- Jesus' Resurrection: Hope or Hoax
- Andy Emmert
He is risen; He is risen indeed is the usual response but to a non-Christian, this is a hard concept to grasp. On a number of occasions Jesus stated that when He is killed He will rise again in 3 days, which drove the Hebrew officials crazy. That is impossible. Unfortunately for them, they believed that Jesus was a fraud and that He was just an ordinary man and once dead He would remain that way, they did not believe that He was the Son of God. And to this day still don’t believe.

- Can I trust The Bible
- Dan Schoepf
Some segments of the population do not believe in the authority of the Bible, choosing to believe rather, that all authority rests in them or some other person or group. In truth, the Bible is accurate in every subject it addresses, and when it states that Jesus is God, that’s what it means. In 2 Peter 1:16 Peter said “…..we were eyewitnesses of His Majesty” 18 “We ourselves heard this voice that came from heaven when we were with him on the sacred mountain when God said “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.” The first 4 words in Genesis “In the beginning God…” should be enough evidence for anyone.

- Is Truth Relative
- Ty Thomas
Webster’s Dictionary has a confusing list of words describing truth. The world sees it in a number of ways and mostly, these days, it sees truth as whatever you believe it to be. To really test the truth you need a standard by which to measure or test it against. The yard is a unit of linear measurement, The truth is, it will always consist of 36 inches. That’s a standard. For Christians, the Bible is the standard of truth and all truth must be measured against it.

- If God is good, why does he allow suffering?
- Yenner Wuanti
We believe that all things God works for the good of those who love Him, so why does God allow Christians suffer? Sin entered into the world through Adam, and we have inherited his sin nature. As we are told in Paul’s letter to the Romans, we should rejoice in our sufferings as they produce perseverance, character and hope. Just as sin entered the world through Adam, our salvation and eternal life was secured by Jesus, God’s only Son, dying on the cross

- How can a loving God send people to hell?
- Ty Thomas
How can a loving God send people to hell? The simple answer is, He doesn’t. People send themselves there. We are not machines, we have free choice and He has made it clear, we can choose to reject His son that He sacrificed for OUR sins and suffer the consequences. People that go to hell choose to, maybe not consciously, but by rejecting God they have sealed their fate. Once you are in God’s family, having accepted His Son Jesus as savior, you are assured of not going to hell. Some commentators have referred to salvation as “Fire Insurance”.

- Has the church lost its credibility?
- Ty Thomas
A number of people think that the church has lost its credibility, claiming that Christians are hypocrites, and while there are some who are, the majority of Christians are not. Slavery in Britain and the rest of the British Empire was abolished because it was against Christian principles, and it was done at a great cost to the nation. Contrast that with the mass murders committed by the godless governments of Russia under Stalin and Germany under Hitler where tens of millions of people were killed because they ”.. did not fit the mold” of the grand design of the governments. We are all human, and are born sinners with a free will, so it should be no surprise that some Christians commit horrendous crimes against humanity. In the final analysis though, it will be shown that this inhumanity to man is not the Christians domain, but rather that of those who hang out in Satan’s realm
