In the early morning hours of December 31, 2010, Dr. Cornelius H. Evans and his wife received a terrible phone call: their son, Bryant, had been shot and killed. The agonizing days that followed brought Evans face-to-face with the realization that evil had touched his family’s life, sending him on a quest to try to understand the role evil plays in our world. Deeply emotional and heartfelt, Surviving Evil in a Depraved Society offers insight into how Evans dealt with the loss of his son by analyzing the root of violence in America—evil. He examines various theories on evil and its origin, its effects on mankind, and how, according to the Christian belief, evil will remain a part of our society until Christ returns. Evans also challenges ideologies, philosophical beliefs, and theologies on whether one can avoid evil elements. He demonstrates that we can be on our guard against inviting evil into our lives by spiritually guarding ourselves and raising our children with a strong moral foundation. An eye-opening look at the face of evil, Surviving Evil in a Depraved Society offers hope for living in today’s world.

Free Will and God s Universal Causality

Mercy, repentance, forgiveness, atonement, conversion from evil, even just punishment: All of these goods presuppose moral evil and cannot be instantiated without it.13 I do not deny that there are good worlds, which a good God might ...

The traditional doctrine of God's universal causality holds that God directly causes all entities distinct from himself, including all creaturely actions. But can our actions be free in the strong, libertarian sense if they are directly caused by God? W. Matthews Grant argues that free creaturely acts have dual sources, God and the free creaturely agent, and are ultimately up to both in a way that leaves all the standard conditions for libertarian freedom satisfied. Offering a comprehensive alternative to existing approaches for combining theism and libertarian freedom, he proposes new solutions for reconciling libertarian freedom with robust accounts of God's providence, grace, and predestination. He also addresses the problem of moral evil without the commonly employed Free Will Defense. Written for analytic philosophers and theologians, Grant's approach can be characterized as “neo-scholastic” as well as “analytic,” since many of the positions defended are inspired by, consonant with, and develop resources drawn from the scholastic tradition, especially Aquinas.

How to Overcome Death

In the area of appearances, when we overcome evil with good, we still must overcome good itself. When good overcomes evil ... Good and evil are the same thing, and they both are illusions to be overcome before one will know what God is.

The overcoming of death is a serious undertaking because death is a part of the nature one one's being; and therefore, not what it appears to be. When Death is reconciled with life, it becomes a means of interdimensional travel. We realize that it wasnt there in the first place. Therefore, the overcoming of death is to take place within one's present consciousness, for death is the counterpart of life in the first place. Therefore, the resurrection unto life is from the death that is hidden in life. It is the dead that appear to be living that are resurrected unto life. Death is something that is a part of ones present consciousness, not something off somewhere in the so-called afterlife The resurrection of the dead is unto conscious life or immortality, or back into the realm of unconscious death; for life and death occupy the same space. It is a matter of seeing death as it is, not just as it appears to be. In that death is not what it appears to be, the overcoming of death is not what it appears to be. Therefore, it is a real possibility. It can be realized within ones lifetime. The Overcoming of Death is the means of bringing the realization of conscious immortality to the awareness of ones present consciousness in this lifetime. It reveals why it is that losing life is finding it, and how it is that it is the dead that are living that hear the voice of the Son of God and are resurrected from the dead.

To overcome a deficit of art portraying the biblical narratives in churches rooted in the Reformation, Gaven M. Mize and Robert E. Rojas Jr., both active Lutheran pastors, have produced Beauty and the Augsburg Confession: Art Devotion. They provide a theological discourse written in homiletical study for each of the articles of the Augsburg Confession, that document that like no other encapsulates what Lutherans believe. For each of these small chapter an appropriate corresponding work of arts is placed. This is not the first time Pastor Mize has done and with Pastor Rojas continues to demonstrate a mastery of Christian art from the Middle Ages up to the present. Mize and Rojas open for us a another dimension in showing us how art along with the word can open to us the mind of God. In fact this is what the incarnation is all about: Jesus is the exact image of God.
