This was a fascinating debate between, as the moderator put it, “two men who are deeply convicted in their hearts of their respective positions”.

It has often been said that of all the objections to theism in general and Christianity in particular, the question of evil is far and away the hardest one to answer. However this debate shows how Christianity not only offers an adequate answer, but also offers something that no other system, particularly atheism/agnosticism, can.

Hope.

  1. Hope?
    Yeah, the beliefs of an ancient, primitive, superstitious culture who spent their lives burning the carcases of dead animals to please their god. Quite the definition of hope, there.
