Why Have You Forsaken Me?: did Jesus doubt his Father?
"Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, 'Eli, Eli, Lema sabachthani?' that is, 'My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?'"

The Problem of Evil

If God’s Sooo Sovereign, Why Do You Pray?

Romans 8:18 "For i consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us" (ESV) How many of us have read Romans 8:17 and have wished Paul would have just left off the second half of the verse? " and if Children,... Continue Reading →
