If God is so good...
why are Christians so bad?
why does he condemn people to hell?
why is he so against our sexual freedom?
Is God good for you?
God calls us to live as ambassadors in the world. It can be tough when we are surrounded by objections to our faith.
Join us as at Onward 19 this June as our panel of internationally renowned apologists Dan Paterson, Mary Jo Sharp and Wassim Sabry equip us to answer these difficult questions with love and truth.
Meet Onward Speakers
There are many along the way who have inspired me at different times in different ways by their godly example or a word in season. "The wise in heart are called discerning, and gracious words promote instruction." Proverbs 16: 21
Most recently, my dear friend Sam died of a thyroid cancer she had been fighting for 11 years. The cancer finally out ran the drugs. She loved the Lord Jesus and longed to die well. And she did.
"For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain" completely summed up her last years. Her desire to share the gospel with her family and friends right till her last breath really challenged my apathy and reticence in my own personal evangelism. She was a Head teacher who was loud, funny and confident but eventually she lost her voice through invasive surgery so she learnt to sign so that she could continue to sing the Lord's praises.
As you get older...it's easier to become jaded and depressed about the future and indeed of Christianity...But the more starkly and realistically you come to appreciate the nature of sin and its consequences, the more brightly shines the hope of the resurrection.
