Attached is a slidepack on Theodicy for Senior Apologetics. The heart of the discussion is near the end between the videos from Zacharias and Piper. The answer to the problem of God and evil/suffering: The Cross.
I was privileged to be a part of a ministry to Middle and High-Schoolers this past weekend at River Valley Ranch in upstate Maryland, near the border of Pennsylvania. It was a pretty intense weekend called “Winter Meltdown.” It is a GGRREEAATTT weekend retreat for both the students AND the leaders and volunteers. The RVR staff takes care of everything so they can achieve their goal, which is
to provide a place free from the distractions of everyday life, where students and leaders can focus on God and build meaningful relationships with each other.
From my perspective, they did just that. I am posting my slide packs here, so if any of the youth leaders want to refer back to these, they can. Use everything at will!
If anyone needs a great camp to go to for any of several reasons, RVR is the place to be!
Attached are the slides for Prolegomenon and an Intro to Hermeneutics for the SysTheo classes at CCS. If you have never thought deeply about hermeneutics (The Science and Art of Biblical Interpretation), then check out the slides. They are based on Howard Hendricks’ book, Living by the Book. For a Christian, not having a good foundation in Hermeneutics is like a Doctor not having a good foundation in Anatomy and Physiology. Think about it . . .
