William Lane Craig comes to Denmark!

Does God Exist?Yesterday we had a wonderful opportunity to witness the long-awaited debate between Prof. Klemens Kappel and Prof. William Lane Craig trying to answer the question: Does God exist? Over 600 people gathered in Bethseda building in Copenhagen. Both theists (Christians, Muslims…) and atheists under one roof in expectance to find some answers for their questions that would support their worldview as more rational. The debate had its traditional form:

2 x 20 min presentation (positive case goes first)
2 x 12 min rebuttal
2 x 8 min rebuttal
2 x 5 min closing statement
Break
Q&A

First one to present his positive case was Prof. Craig, who guided us through 3 reasonable ways of inferring that something might be one way rather than the other.

  1. Logical argument
    1. Cosmological argument
  2. Argument from the Best explanation
    1. Fine-Tuning of the universe
    2. The origin of the universe
  3. Historic explanation
    1. Resurrection of Jesus Christ (and the 3 indisputable facts rooted in historic sources)
      1. The empty tomb
      2. Post-mortem appearances of Jesus
      3. Strong faith of disciples that even lead them to die for their cause

After this Prof. Kappel compared God to other mythical beings like Thor or Aphrodite in effort to show the absurdity of such reasoning. Afterwards he explained that we ought to give space to science and common sense that tells us that such creatures do not exist and even though there are areas that science cannot yet give account for, we ought to stay careful in filling them with God. He stated that he will not respond to the arguments given by Prof. Craig for we should not give them so much credit, rather he will only give reasons to show why atheism is a better option. For it is most likely impossible to show somehow with arguments that God does not exist. Quote: “Not to persuade you, but to illustrate“. Then he presented some kind of dialectical issue in which we deal with two people who come to different conclusions based on the same evidence. However they are so convinced that their explanation is the right one that they are beyond the reach of reasoning and no debate will persuade them otherwise, thus only some sort illustrations can bear meaning. At last he elaborated on the origin of belief stating, that the reason why people believe in various religions is to large degree the background in which they were born to and raised in.

Francis Chan Gratis

For all you who are using Logos Bible Software or have downloaded Vyrso free application to your iPad, iPhone or Android, read carefully about the special offer in the Vyrso Frebies section!

!!! ONLY TODAY !!!

 
€0.00 EUR (save: €11.44 EUR)

Have you ever wondered if we’re missing it?

It’s crazy, if you think about it. The God of the universe—the Creator of nitrogen and pine needles, galaxies and E-minor—loves us with a radical, unconditional, self-sacrificing love. And what is our typical response? We go to church, sing songs, and try not to cuss.

Whether you’ve verbalized it yet or not.we all know something’s wrong.

Does something deep inside your heart long to break free from the status quo? Are you hungry for an authentic faith that addresses the problems of our world with tangible, even radical, solutions? God is calling you to a passionate love relationship with Himself. Because the answer to religious complacency isn’t working harder at a list of do’s and don’ts—it’s falling in love with God. And once you encounter His love, as Francis describes it, you will never be the same. Read the rest of this entry »

John Piper & D.A. Carson in Germany

We are glad that in such a short time we can offer you information about another significant event that will take place in ARCHE, Hamburg, Germany (see the map below) on 13 – 15 of May, 2012 called “GOD SPEAKS” (The word of the Lord remains forever). In here you will have a special opportunity to be a part of a conference, where you can connect with hundreds of like-minded people, pick up something useful at one of the different workshops and listen to some of the top speakers and preachers of the 21st century. And all of this without any entrance fee!

John Piper in GermanyJohn Piper is pastor for preaching and vision at Bethlehem Baptist Church in the Twin Cities of Minnesota. He grew up in Greenville, South Carolina, and studied at Wheaton College, Fuller Theological Seminary (B.D.), and the University of Munich (D.theol.). For six years he taught Biblical Studies at Bethel College in St. Paul, Minnesota, and in 1980 accepted the call to serve as pastor at Bethlehem. John is the author of more than 40 books and more than 30 years of his preaching and teaching is available free at desiringGod.org. John and his wife, Noel, have four sons, one daughter, and twelve grandchildren.

“God si most glorified in me, when I am most satisfied in him. This is the motor that drives my ministry as a pastor. It affects everything I do.”

http://www.desiringgod.org/about/who-is-john-piper

Don (D. A.) Carson (b. 1946) – Reformed evangelical at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. His theology is similar to that of Wayne Grudem except on charismatic issues, where his view may be described as “open but cautious.” Carson’s tendency is to strive for balance and amicability in disputes but is uncompromising on the essentials of the faith. He is a complementarian but supports gender-neutral Bible translations. Carson’s areas of expertise include biblical theology, the historical Jesus, postmodernism, pluralism, Greek grammar, Johannine theology, Pauline theology, and questions of suffering and evil. He has written books on free will and predestination from a generally compatibilist and Calvinist persepective. He is a member of the Tyndale Fellowship for Biblical Research, the Society of Biblical Literature, the Evangelical Theological Society, the Canadian Society of Biblical Studies, and the Institute for Biblical Research. Dr. Carson and his wife, Joy, reside in Libertyville, Illinois. They have two children. In his spare time, Dr. Carson enjoys reading, hiking, and woodworking.

Many reffer to him as to the one who wrote the commentaries about Biblical commentaries.

http://www.monergism.com/thethreshold/articles/bio/dacarson.html

Besides these there will be Kai Soltau, Christian Wegert and M. Lohmann that will also offer us their insight and knowledge into a variety of Biblical truths.

While there are 5 simultaneous workshops on Monday between 14:30 and 15:30 only M. Reakes-Williams’: „Correctly handling the word of truth – the Christian and the Old Testament“ will be in English. All the other workshop will unfortunately makes sense only to the German speaking population. Yet it seems that besides this little trouble there needs to be no other worry for we can read in their flyer that “In addition, simultaneous translation will be offered into English and Russian for those main sessions which are held in German. Depending on demand and availability there will also be translation into other languages.”

At last, a small but obvious need is to find a hotel for yourself. While the entrance is for free, a 3 day stay in Hamburg will require a place to stay. If you have troubles finding one you can cross a square in the registration form of the flyer to ask for some possibly helpful information regarding the lodging.

For more information download the flyer (english) or visit the website Evangelium21. (only in German)

William Lane Craig comes to Denmark!

17.april (Tuesday)

William will give a lecture at Aalborg University on the topic – The Problem of Evil. There are only 150 places, so be quick to come!

Address: Kroghstræde 3, 9220 Aalborg Øst, in a big auditorium (room 1.104) from 10:00 to aprx.16.

The Problem of Evil

The problem of innocent suffering–usually called ‘the problem of evil’ by philosophers–is the most important argument against the existence of God. Dr. Craig differentiates between the emotional and intellectual problems of evil in order to help keep our thinking about this controverted subject clear. He further differentiates between internal and external versions of the intellectual problem of evil, arguing that while the former is generally thought to have been resolved, the latter remains a subject of debate. During his morning lecture Dr. Craig will set up the problem and discuss the internal version; during the afternoon lecture he shall address the external version.

18.april (Wednesday) 

Following day he will come to Copenhagen to engage in a debate with Mr. Klemens Kappel. (click to see the previous article, that shortly covered Kappel’ professional background) on the question: Does God exist? You can enjoy a Free Entry, so come and see this leading craftsman of contemporary apologetics in action for yourself!

Klemens Kappel & William Lane Craig
