Atheists, How is the Existence of God and Evil Incompatible?

Many people mistakenly think that if evil exists, then therefore God cannot exist. But the question must be asked, "How are the two incompatible with each other?" Dr. William Lane Craig in this short two-minute video shows that the atheist is actually the one who has the burden of proof to shoulder, showing that the two cannot co-exist.

Evil, a Proof of God's Existence

For sure one of the most common arguments used against the existence of God is the fact that there is evil in the world. But in actuality, evil much less than being an argument against God's existence, actually proves His existence. Dr. William Lane Craig and Dr. Greg Koukl in this close to 3 minute video explain how this is the case.

The Ontological Argument & Refuting Dawkins

The Ontological Argument for God's existence is one that has been greatly discussed as to its validity ever since its first formation by Anselm in the 11th century AD. Since then, the argument has been developed further by various philosophers in response to some of the criticism the argument has received. Dr. William Lane Craig in the following 5 minute video lays out the Modal Ontological Argument, and then addresses some of the criticism that Richard Dawkins has made against the argument.

A Brief Overview of Islam


With the sheer amount of Muslims migrating to Western countries these days, undoubtedly you have seen many in your day to day life. But would you know how to witness to a Muslim? Are there any points of commonality? Do they have different concept of God and salvation? Dr. R.C. Sproul, from Ligonier Ministries, with special guest Abdul Saleeb have recently given an 8-part lecture series (20 some minutes each) answering these sorts of questions. This dialogue was recently broadcast on Dr. Sproul's Renewing Your Mind Podcast.

How to respond to "But who Created God?"

If you have talked with an atheist before about the existence of God, undoubtedly you have heard them respond with, "But who created God?" This is usually in the context of presenting the cosmological argument, explaining that all things that have beginnings have causes, the universe had a beginning and therefore must have had a cause. Atheists strangely think by saying, "What caused God?" they have found a defeater for this cosmological argument. But as Dr. William Lane Craig explains in the following one minute video, the question the atheist is asking there is completely irrelevant, and therefore not a defeater to the cosmological argument.
