Hard Questions—Part 4
What is the purpose of life? Why does God allow suffering? Should Christians be involved in politics? How can we find truth in this world? When we face important questions in life, where can we turn? Regardless of our perspective on tough subjects, the Bible can provide us with the insight and guidance we all need. Tune in for the series, Hard Questions, as we explore some of the difficult and uncomfortable topics that arise in today’s world. We’ll discover how a book that was written almost 2,000 years ago can still provide relevant and topical answers.
