Talk of travel, a bucket list and golf often accompany plans for kicking back to enjoy one’s later years, if good health allows. Don Finto, near the end of nine decades of life, will challenge lecture attendees to consider far more. Here are seven issues he hopes to address in this lecture: The age factor as it relates to life How living today affects tomorrow Always experiencing more of Jesus, more of the Holy Spirit Becoming disciples of Jesus, not just converts Receiving and walking in God’s vision of who we are Learning to enjoy life inter-generationally Becoming one of God’s eternal optimists Don Finto is Mark Lanier's former pastor (Belmont Church, Nashville, TN) and the founder of Caleb Company.

Ayer once remarked that Christianity is arguably the worst of the world’s religions because it rests, in Ayer’s words, on “the allied doctrines of original sin and vicarious atonement, which are intellectually contemptible and morally outrageous.” Three sorts of objections have been lodged against the doctrine of vicarious atonement: (1) Substitutionary punishment is incoherent; (2) Substitutionary punishment is unjust; and (3) Substitutionary punishment is unsatisfactory. In this talk I shall examine these three objections and defend the coherence, justice, and satisfactoriness of Christ’s substitutionary atonement for our sins. William Lane Craig is Professor of Philosophy at Houston Baptist University and a Visiting Scholar at Talbot School of Theology in La Mirada, California.

Registration is not yet open for this event. Did the Demons Do it? Jesus, Satan and the Problem of Suffering Why suffering occurs in a world created by a loving God remains one of the most wrestled-with questions in human thought. Does God send suffering to educate, correct or deepen us? Does suffering bring out human qualities that would never emerge without it? Or, is suffering a negative, destructive force we would be better without? If so, why does God allow it? Michael Lloyd takes a dim view of suffering. He will look primarily at the Gospels for answers to some of these questions, and he will argue that taking the New Testament's demonic language seriously helps us to think more humanely about these difficult questions. Michael Lloyd is the Principal of Wycliffe Hall at the University of Oxford in England. To learn more about Michael Lloyd, click HERE.
