YOU ARE INVITED TO THIS ONE-NIGHT EVENT

WHY DOES GOD ALLOW EVIL?

If God is good and all-powerful, why doesn’t He put a stop to the evil in this world? Non-Christians and Christians alike struggle with the concept of a loving God who allows widespread suffering in this life and never-ending punishment in hell. We wrestle with questions such as…

  • Why do bad things happen to good people?

  • Why should we have to suffer for Adam’s sin?

  • How could people go to hell because they never heard the Gospel?

  • How could eternal punishment be fair?

  • What is free will?

Don't miss out on this great opportunity as Dr. Clay Jones examines what Scripture truly says about the nature of evil and why God allows it.

At the end of the lecture, there will be extra time for Q&A.  We are hoping that this night will help you discover the contrasting abundance of God’s grace, the overwhelming joy of Heaven, and the extraordinary destiny of believers.
