Many scientists and philosophers believe that the laws of nature preclude even the slightest amount of self-determinism. And many Christians agree; they may think that choice – as I’ve described it in my previous post – would violate the sovereignty of God. I agree with these Christians that God is Sovereign, which means he is the supreme authority and has ultimate control over all creation. However this d...Read Full Post »

The Bible tells us that humans bear the image of God. Genesis 1:26-27 states: “Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness . . . . So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” There are many different ideas about what this means – what is the image of God?

I've been exposed to an idea in the Church, and I must admit I've believed it - at least subconsciously. We get told that God makes bad things happen to us in order to get our attention.
