Theodicy: The Problem of Evil - Habakkuk (God & Evil 1) ()

Phillip HopwoodPhillip Hopwood, April 10, 2011
Part of the God and Evil series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

From the expulsion from the Garden of Eden, to captivity in Egypt, to the expulsion from the Promised Land
In the midst of suffering,
(1) from their own sins
(2) and the evils suffered at the hands of others
God gave his servants the hope of being rescued from evil
(1) forgiven from their own sins
(2) rescued from the evil of others, freed from suffering and injustice
This is what we can put our faith in, especially when it seems evil is triumphing over good, and all seems lost

  2. Paul has been undermined by other teachers of the gospel who contend he is not a very impressive speaker when he is with the Church in Corinth. This sermon addresses what our defense is when an attack comes against us that is rooted in the flesh.
