In this Bible Study episode, Pastors Nathanael Mayhew and Mark Tiefel take us into the very first book of the Bible, the Old Testament book of Genesis. This book is foundational for the rest of the Old and New Testaments and gives an answer for many of the big questions of life. How did life begin? Why is there sin in the world? Why are there so many languages? and many more. They talk about the reliability of this important book and the main purpose, which is to show that God worked through and in History to fulfill His plan of salvation for the human race in the person of Jesus Christ. We pray that this study is insightful and rewarding for you, and we encourage you to pick up your Bible and study it again for yourself.The Holy Spirit will bless your study!
In this special episode of Conservative Pastor Response Pastors Mark Tiefel and Nathanael Mayhew discuss the topic of God and suffering from a skeptic’s perspective. They deal with the following questions: “Why is their evil in the world?” – Because of sin and the fall recorded in Genesis 3; “How can a God who is loving allow bad things to happen?” – Because God is also just and our sin brings God’s judgment against our sin. God justice was served in Christ at the cross; “Why would God even allow for the possibility of sin?” – Because God wanted us to love Him freely because of all that He has done for us; “Why doesn’t God just eliminate all evil?” – Because God desires the salvation of all people, and He wants us to repent and to trust in Him for salvation. We pray that this discussion is beneficial for you and in your witnessing to others.
