Articles and Sermons
We invite you to consider these articles and sermons in light of God's word, that you be considered "noble-minded" by Him.
Today we present another sermon from our April 2015 gospel meeting, which was held by Clint De France. Brother Clint teaches on the presence of God and how affects us in the Christian age.
One of the questions often asked, sometimes as part of an attempt to disprove the existence of God is, "Why does God allow suffering?" The argument usually runs along this line: "If God is all loving and all powerful, how could he allow suffering to occur? If He really did exist, then He would do away with suffering, but since there is suffering, He does not exist."
The problem with this argument is that is makes several assumptions that are faulty: firstly that suffering is necessarily a bad thing; secondly that suffering serves no purpose and thirdly that there is no higher purpose than life on the Earth.
There are few, if any, questions more important than 'who is Jesus?' The world has a range of views of this important question, but they cannot all be true. The answer to the question will determine how we live our lives.
Some people claim Jesus to be a myth and not a historical character. Others believe him to be a great teacher or prophet, one of many who have walked the earth. Still others believe him to be a man and nothing else, in contrast to those who believe he is the Son of God. Even among those who claim him to be the Son of God there is disagreement about what that actually means.
