Apologetics - Legit Questions Deserve Legit Answers

For those who still ask questions, we tackle some of the more common objections to the existence of God. There are legitimate questions that many good people ask. If that is you, or your friends, you’ve come to the right place. Oh - and we throw in a little humor along the way!

#56: Why Does God Allow Pain and Suffering?

First in our apologetics series, we tackle a question that has made believers queasy for thousands of years. Why does a loving, all-powerful, all-knowing, God allow pain and suffering in this world? While some choose to ignore the question, others bank on it as justification for not believing in God. Either way, it is a legitimate question that has a powerful answer. Once you know it, you’ll be able to share with your friends who may be wondering the same thing.

#57: The Problem with Evil

Can there be an all-knowing, all-powerful, all-loving God at the same time evil exists? Or asked another way, “If there is a God, why does He allow evil to exist?”

In this second episode of our apologetics series, we tackle this question. If you haven’t asked it, your friends certainly have. Ready for an answer?

Romans 8:19-23
Hebrews 5:14
Matthew 13:24-30

Also, in this episode we touch briefly on the issue of whether or not people have the ability to choose between doing good or evil. Do we have choice? Or are our decisions the result of naturalistic inputs such as our DNA or environmental surroundings (Determinism)?

While we don’t intend to fully dissect that topic, it is pertinent when it comes to the question of evil.

#58: Can A Rational (not boring) Case Be Made for God?

Does science allow for the existence of George Washington? And, are those who believe faith is irrational right? Many Christians CELEBRATE the notion that their faith is irrational. To reason through the existence of God would mean we don’t have true faith, they claim. Feelings and emotional worship experiences have replaced reasoned questions and a quest for truth in most assemblies. No wonder skeptics think Christians are harmlessly ignorant at best and dangerously so at worst.

And we at Inner Man Radio completely agree with the skeptics on this one.

But the question stands - CAN a person come to a rational, well-reasoned faith in God? The same way they come to believe George Washington existed.

We believe so. And furthermore, we believe the burden of proof actually lies with the Atheist, when reason is applied.
