Answering Two Atheist Objections

In this blast from the past, Jim answers listener email and responds to two atheist objections. Most skeptics cite either the problem of evil or the unlikely occurrence of the resurrection in an effort to invalidate theism and the Christian Worldview. Why would God create our world in the first place if he could simply have ushered us directly into heaven and avoided all the pain and suffering? How do we account for those episodes in the scripture in which Jesus' followers seem to have trouble identifying him after the resurrection? Is this evidence that the resurrection was a fraud?

How Were People Saved Before Jesus?

In this blast from the past, Jim begins to respond to listener email by addressing two difficult issues. How were people saved prior to the life of Jesus? If faith alone in Christ alone is required to be saved, how were Old Testament saints saved prior to the arrival of Christ? Jim also addresses the ‘hot topic’ issue of abortionist murders. Does the Old Testament require us to stop the murdering of the unborn by murdering the doctors who are performing abortions? Are abortionist murders permissible in light of the Old Testament Law? How are we to reconcile the tension between what we believe and what the law of the land permits?
