Isnít the Bible a Myth?
Chris Swanson
This discussion will look at the common questions surrounding the reliability of the Bible.
Mon Jan 17, 05:30-07:15pm, Baker Hall, TV room

How Can You Say There Is Only One Way to God?
Chris Swanson
How do we respond to the "exclusive" truth claims of various worldviews, including Christianity. Is it okay to hold an exclusive worldview? Do we all have exclusive worldviews? How can we live peacefully together?
Tue Jan 18, 05:30-07:15pm, Baker Hall - TV room

What Gives You the Right to Tell Me How to Live My Life?
Chris Swanson
Doesn't Christianity inhibit my personal freedom? It seems like there are lots of rules to follow.
Wed Jan 19, 05:30-07:15pm, Baker Hall - TV room

Why Does God Allow Suffering?
Chris Swanson
One of the hardest human questions - why is there suffering in the world. If God exists, why doesn't he do something?
Mon Jan 24, 05:30-07:15pm, email for location

Why Is the Church Responsible for So Much Injustice?
Chris Swanson
Hasn't the church caused a lot of problems in the past? Why are Christians such hypocrites?
Tue Jan 25, 05:30-07:15pm, email for location

How Can God Be Full of Love and Wrath at the Same Time?
Chris Swanson
Isnt' the idea of a loving God contradictory to a God who is wrathful? Is it possible to be both loving and wrathful and be consistent?
