October 24, 2020 Lecture by William Lane Craig – POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

October 24 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Lanier Theological Library, 14130 Hargrave Rd.
Houston, 77070 United States
Free

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. “Philosophical Issues in the Atonement" The British philosopher A. J. 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.

January 23, 2021 Lecture by Michael Lloyd

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.
