The Problem of Evil: Sin or Injustice?

Sin moves the responsibility of evil away from us to the devil, thereby making it a spiritual problem, as such, the anecdote becomes prayers. 

However, the term injustice makes the case for a moral and ethical problem, leaving us with opportunities for reflection, with a view to change our perspective (repent if you like), thereby being at peace with God and humanity. 

The latter makes us agents and instruments of change, bringing God’s decrees into every facet of society. It makes us Good Samaritans, not priests or Levites.

This Sunday @ Healingsprings fellowship! 

Prisoner of Conscience. 

Last week we opened up with Yusuf Mohamed Ismail, a Somali politician, and Ambassador to the UN Human Rights Office in Geneva.

A Muslim who used his office to fight tirelessly for justice for ‘prisoners of conscience’; some of them Christians suffering persecution in Africa. 

In this lecture I examined his life using Paul’s writing as recorded in (Romans 2:14-16), explaining the importance of doing Christianity, as to talking Christianity.
This Sunday, we take another case study of a doer. This time a Roman officer by the name Cornelius.

So, join us tomorrow for: Prisoner of Conscience. 

This lecture takes us into the heart of God for humanity, through the effective working of His outpost on earth, the Church.

This Sunday’s lecture | The parable of the talents: a lesson in praxis

Last Sunday we looked at aspects of Jesus’ life through Gramsci’s concept of the Organic Intellectual. Tomorrow we build upon that foundation, bringing it home, and reflecting on our lives as believers in the 21st century.

In 1944, while Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s was in prison by the Nazi regime, he wrote a letter a friend. In this letter he asked some profound questions with regards to the trajectory of Christianity. He presciently said:

We are moving towards a completely religionless time; people as they are now simply cannot be religious anymore. Even those who honestly describe themselves as ‘religious’ do not in the least act up to it, and so they presumably mean something quite different by ‘religious’

To this end, the following questions come to mind:
– How can we live out our faith effectively within our communities?

  • How can the church remain relevant now and in the next generation?
  • What does the parable of the talents mean to us today?

So join us tomorrow as we explore themes around these questions.
