“The Truth That Changes Everything”
“You will want your groups to know that Jesus is risen. But to what extent is this a credal belief – Christianity 101 – and to what extent is it a historical fact that truly changes everything for you and your groups? Sarah Yardley reminds us why we can trust this with our very lives.”

“Is God Allowing Suffering?”The GoodLion Podcast
When God made the world, he called it good… and yet when we look at the world today, a lot of times it doesn’t really seem very good. It’s filled with pandemics and violence and racism and division. And that’s just this year, when we look back at human history, it is filled with all kinds of terrible things. We’ve talked to on this podcast about whether or not God causes evil, and while we recommend you go back and listen to those past episodes, our short answer was no, God doesn’t cause evil, but he does allow it. Like with most areas of theology, when one question gets answered a thousand more troubling questions seem to rise up behind it. So if God doesn’t allow evil, Isn’t that really just as bad as him causing it? How can a good God allow evil to happen? If He allows it, is that really any better than him causing the evil in the first place?”
