What is Evil?

        Trying to redeem the humble 'tract'. Saying something important in just 400 words.

 

How do you Make Sense of Evil and Suffering?

 

I’m sure you’ve noticed all the evil and suffering in the world.

Ponder the wars, rapes and murders that we hear about on a daily basis.

It’s probably over the top to mention Hitler but you get my point.

Former England football manager Glenn Hoddle was sacked because of his take on evil.

In 1999 he said that disabled people deserve to suffer because of their bad karma.

Is Prince Philip the Chosen One?

Is the Duke of Edinburgh God’s Chosen One?

There are people on the island of Tanna in the South Pacific Ocean who worship the Duke of Edinburgh as a god.

The islanders used to be committed cannibals and they ate the first two missionaries who came to Tanna.

More missionaries arrived, told them about Jesus and many of the locals became Christians.

They stopped eating each other and began to eat Jesus instead (John 6:54).

In the 1960s many of the islanders noticed Prince Philip in his wonderful, shiny, white uniform.

Baptist Times on RealityBites

Delighted that the Baptist Times has published my article on Serving God in schools and on the streets. I am trying hard to get people thinking about a worldview-infused way of doing mission and discipleship. Please write to the BT and join the discussion.

Student Ministry in Leeds

​RealityBites is a ministry that is part of ThinkingFaithNetwork.

What do we do? Here is one of our projects.

My good friend Mark Yeadon and I reach out to students by telling stories and sharing the good news of Jesus. We are inspired by the Great Commission (Matthew 28:16-20). We follow Jesus by telling fascinating stories and asking provocative questions. We make ourselves vulnerable by serving hot drinks to students and homeless people outside the Library pub on Woodhouse Lane in Leeds.

Young People Serving the Technology god

Above is a photo of young people learning how to serve a very powerful and hypnotic god. Technology is a good gift from God but can easily become an idol! A bit of background to this.

The famous Russian revolutionary Trotsky (1879-1940) wrote that “Such is the power of science, that the average human-being will become an Aristotle, a Goethe, a Marx.  And beyond this new peaks will rise.” Trotsky believed in the power of science and technology to create a perfect world. He was tragically misled.
