"If God is so powerful and so good, why do bad things happen?"
Voddie Baucham answers the age old question: If God is so powerful and good, why do bad things happen?
This is a 5 min. clip of Voddie Baucham's message "The Supremacy of Christ and Truth in a Postmodern World" given at the 2006 Desiring God National Conference.
Resource Mentioned:
In part 2 Dan reads from a sermon titled: "Satan Considering the Saints" by C.H. Spurgeon with comments. (Special thanks to Gloria Fulford for sending me this article ~ You will need a dictionary for some of Spurgeon's vocabulary!)  Doug
After over a decade the Lord directed me to reconnect with brother Al Whittinghill. As a result of this providential re-connecting with Al I am including his timely email which I received on March 25th. It is urgent that we take seriously the exhortation and instruction that our brother has presented to us KNOWING that the time is VERY short before God's final eschatological shaking engulfs the Body of Christ world-wide! (Rom. 13:11-14 w/ Heb. 12:25-29 w/ 1 Pet. 4:17 w/ Rev. 3:14-22 w/ 19:7 w/ Eph. 5:25-27)
 
Maranatha,
Doug Riggs

Reckoning With Truth - Eric Ludy Sunday, October 31, 2010 It was an extraordinary week on the Ellerslie campus. God's presence was sweet and intimately near, but also deeply soul-searching and convicting. It was an entire week on our faces, beholding the holiness and yet also the amazing grace of our Beloved. Amidst this campus-wide revival, the enemy attempted, with great energy and ammunition, to counter the forward steps of the saints. This led to a showdown, a classic gunslinging shootout between the best lies of Hell and the best Truths of Heaven. This message is an introduction to the facts that never fail, the Word that never returns void, and the Truth that truly does make the Christian free. Because, in such a showdown - the Cross of Christ always proves victorious.

Upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.  Matthew 16.18 

Gates serve as entrance and exit. Neither Hades nor death can hold on to believers or the church, because the incorruptible life has already been manifested in them (see 2 Tim. 1.10). This incorruptible life has come out of Hades. For the Lord has the authority to have His life enter in and exit out of Hades at will. Hades has no power to hold back this life. And what has been deposited in the believer is the very same life. For this reason, Hades cannot withhold us either. However vicious the environment—trial, persecution, malice, murder, and so forth—and though we may be walled in on all sides, we shall have a life which can neither be withheld nor overcome by any environment.                                                                                                                   by Watchman Nee
