Is Hell for Real? Common Misconceptions.

This article from the GOOD BOOK COMPANY

THREE FUNERALS AND A WEDDING: Common Misconceptions About Hell

by Erik Raymond | July 31st 2017

One of the reasons why Christians find it so difficult to talk about God’s judgement is the level of misunderstanding that already exists about what Hell is. The word and the idea is routinely used in conversation, and in advertising to represent something that it is not. Here are three common ones. Continue reading “Is Hell for Real?

What is Christianity?

Is Christianity bad news for women?

Amy Orr-Ewing delivers the 2017 Richard Johnson Lecture, “Is Christianity Bad News for Women?”

The 2nd-century Greek philosopher Celsus famously dismissed Christianity as a religion of women, children, and slaves – that is to say, not to be taken seriously. But Christianity is much more likely to be condemned today, not for being a religion of  women, but a religion  against  women. If gender equality mattered to the early church, what happened to it? What does Christianity’s chequered treatment of women mean for its credibility today? And is the Christian faith a force for the oppression of women, or for their flourishing?

Amy Orr-Ewing is Director of the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics (OCCA). Her doctoral studies at the University of Oxford focused on the British novelist, essayist, and “Christian humanist” Dorothy L. Sayers. The author of several books, Amy is also a widely sought-after international speaker addressing audiences at the White House and on Capitol Hill, as well as in the UK Parliament. She regularly appears on TV and radio, including on BBC Television and Radio 4, to comment on a variety of topics relating to the Christian faith.

Jesus: God’s Redemption and Hope (Reading Luke series – part 4)

This last section of Luke’s Gospel looks at the pinnacle of Jesus’ earthly ministry: his death and resurrection. While some might see the story end at Jesus’ death, Luke gives the whole account of God’s plan of redemption, which includes the defeat of death itself. The impact of these events echo throughout history. God’s plan for salvation through Jesus has forever changed how humanity relates to himself, and gives us a hope beyond just this life.
