Proper 8 – Series B
One of the great cultural divides between Christians and those who are outside the faith, especially those who frequently exhibit some antipathy to the Christian Church, is the question of God’s love or sometimes couched as the Problem of Evil. For the person outside the faith, they question the reality of God and his love. They look at the death and destruction which surrounds them, and they wonder if there is a God and if there is a God, he surely must be a cruel and terrible God. How we talk about God’s love to us will profoundly impact the way we interact missionally with these folks.
