The following is a talk I recently gave at a Christian conference here in Canada. It was my last year as coordinator, and I wanted to share both encouragement and, of course, thinky things.
Christianity predicts that most will not be Christians. Yet the Bible says that only believers will go to heaven. Does this mean Christianity preaches a God who wants to commit genocide against most of the world by denying most souls eternal life?
This is something I’ve struggled with in very personal and painful ways. The talk explores the balance between a God who calls to His created ones, and a human heart which chooses.
The conference was themed around the question, “What’s your philosophy of life?” Our keynote speaker was Dr. Stewart Kelly of Minot State University, a former student of Dr. Alvin Plantinga. You can click here to go to the full day’s audio at the conference site.
