March 2nd -- God and Evil (CANCELLED)

"God is..."

Just noticed a quirky coincidence...
We began February with a study on the Day of Atonement
and ended with a study on the book of Hosea.
Hosea spent a lot of time and money trying to win back his adulteress wife from the world and show her the way to salvation. 
Theirs was a tumultuous love story that parallels the lengths that God will go to save (through Jesus/Hosea= salvation) all who are willing. 

Atonement and Reconciliation through Jesus, our Savior.   

“Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior.
 But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight,
without blemish and free from accusation—if you continue in your faith, established and firm,
and do not move from the hope held out in the gospel...” Col 1:21-23

Having studied the high cost of reconciliation, we will now look at why evil is so... evil. 
If God is good/love/a provider/creator/a faithful Father/friend, etc...
Why does sin even exist?  

Please join us this Friday as Pastor Zeke leads a study on 
“the problem of evil”.
We will meet at Adey’s place in Trussville at 6:30pm.

She asks that we help by providing a salad and dessert.

Hope you have a wonderful rest of the week & see you on Friday!

 P.S.  The study starts at 7:30pm.
P.P.S. Bring a friend!
P.P.S.S. Need an inspirational scripture to read? 
 Try Hebrews 10 for more on atonement, reconciliation, victory over sin and faith to endure.
