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.

Registration is not yet open for this event. "For So You Love to Do": What Is Acceptable Worship? - Lessons from Amos What kind of worship is acceptable to God? The prophet Amos tells us that God hated and despised Israel's sacrifices and songs. God told them not to even go to their sanctuaries! What was so wrong with the worship of God's people? At the heart of Amos's message was that the people had a twisted theology of God. How? Why? Is God pleased with our worship today? Are there lessons from the prophet which might help us evaluate our own worship so that he might receive it gladly? Are there areas of our theology that we need to examine? Daniel Carroll Rodas is the Blanchard Professor of Old Testament at Wheaton College in Wheaton, IL.

El profeta Amós nos dice que Dios aborrecía y abominaba los sacrificios y cantos de Israel. ¡Dios aún les dijo que ni fueran a los santuarios! ¿Qué tenía de malo el culto del pueblo de Dios? El meollo del mensaje de Amós era que su pueblo tenía una teología distorsionada de Dios. ¿Cómo? ¿Por qué? – ¿Está Dios complacido con nuestra adoración hoy en día? ¿Qué nos puede enseñar el profeta para poder evaluar nuestra adoración a fin de que Él esté satisfecho con nosotros? ¿Habrán áreas de nuestra teología que tenemos que examinar? Daniel Carroll Rodas es el Profesor Blanchard del Antiguo Testamento en Wheaton College en Wheaton, IL. Para obtener más información sobre Daniel Carroll Rodas, haga clic AQUÍ.

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, William Lane Craig will 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.
