Theodicy: The Triumph of Good Over Evil
Good is eternal but Evil has an end. In fact, God has already conquered it and we must join Him in His Kingdom as overcomers.
But why do we still see so much evil?
What purpose does creation really serve? What is our role in the here
During this Theodicy conference David J. Jones will be answering those questions and more. From the origin of evil to God’s intent for Creation, and the history of salvation this conference will help us understand the outworking of God’s greater purposes.
Come and learn with us how we share in God’s victory.
