Steven Fry and the question of suffering part 3

Concluding our three-part series in which we take a closer look at a short viral video in which British actor Steven Fry "annihilates God," we further tackle the concept of living inside of a cursed world.

Stephen Fry and the question of suffering, part 2

Starting from where we left off last time, British actor Stephen Fry deliveres a lengthy diatribe against God for causing unspeakable suffering in the world.

How we should look at the Bible

Last week, I presented on what I believe. Now, I'd like to take some time to briefly discuss the Bible, and how we should examine it. It isn't enough to go to church, listen to preachers, read Christian ‘self help’ books and sing songs to and about God. In a world where the tenets of Christianity can be …
