Why Would a Loving God Allow Evil, Pain, and Suffering?

This online webinar was on Sunday, April 26, 2020 at 8:00 p.m. EDT. It looked at how the greatest Christian thinkers of all time have dealt with the problem of evil and the mystery of suffering in a world which God made and pronounced as "good." In other words, why does God allow natural disasters and disease, such as coronavirus, as well as terrorism and other atrocities? This multimedia presentation included several powerful and inspiring video testimonies. Understanding the purpose of suffering will help us and those we love become better, not bitter, when facing the inevitable hardships of life.

God and Science: Where Does the Evidence Lead?

Contrary to the prevailing myth of a conflict between science and faith, attendees at this online webinar on Sunday, May 3, 2020 at 8:00 p.m. EDT will be excited to learn “the rest of the story” regarding the amazing scientific evidence of God's existence, mostly presented on video by scientists themselves. This apologetics presentation will dispel doubts and strengthen faith. It is also an excellent opportunity to develop persuasive reasons for belief, valuable for sharing with family and friends who may have doubts about the existence of God.


Which is True: Creation, Evolution, or Both?

This online webinar on Sunday, May 10, 2020 at 8:00 p.m. EDT explores key Church teachings on the biggest challenge to faith experienced by many people today, especially in college: Is evolution compatible with faith in God? Or, does evolution make it possible to be an "intellectually fulfilled atheist" (to quote Oxford Professor Richard Dawkins)? This apologetics presentation will provide valuable information for discussion with those who have questions about God's role in the development of life on earth, including how an intelligent cause is a valid explanation for the genetic information in DNA.
