Covid-19 and the Problem of Evil

As Covid-19 spreads around the planet, religious people everywhere will be asking themselves the same question. If the universe is supervised by a loving God, why are such horrible things allowed to happen? After all, if God is all-powerful, he could stop a pandemic; and if he is all-good, he would surely want to. Our unease is only intensified as places of worship worldwide are shut down. The religious suddenly find themselves unable to seek God in the way they believe He has commanded them to—and at precisely the time they need Him the most.

Seven Questions that Define your World

The content we watch and consume has a power to shape ourselves and our imaginations. To resist being molded by the world, one should know the truth and be able to identify worldly wisdom and deceptive philosophies in the day-to-day. So how does one go about this? In this article we look into the topic of worldviews, and how to recognise ideas that are seeping in and slowly fermenting and molding us into a direction we don't want to go.

A Spiritual View of Wealth and Poverty

There is a widespread assumption that material goods are always good and the lack of them is always bad. Surveying the distribution of wealth in our world, for instance, we observe what appears to be a notorious injustice. There are good people who are poor and bad people who are rich. And what is more: The bad people are often rich because they are bad—having gained wealth through greed, dishonesty and exploitation. For theists this seems to pose a riddle. If an all-powerful and all-good God superintends the universe, why does he permit this obvious injustice?
