People of deep faith and people very skeptical of faith often ask the same three questions: 1. How can you believe in Religion in an age of science ? 2. Isn't Religion the source of wars and hatred and intolerance in the world ? Wouldn't we be better without it ? 3. If God exists, why does he let bad things happen ? If God is all powerful and all loving, how can you explain the terrible suffering in this world ? Join us as we wrestle with the big three.

Is Religion what we need, or what we need to get rid of ? When people say “Religion is the reason we have wars and hatred and intolerance…” – are they right ? Does Religion set people free or does it oppress them ? Does religion cause human flourishing or stunt it ? As a Christian was does it mean to work for the common good and the flourishing of the city ? Today we look at these questions, a definition of Wisdom, and world history to come to an understanding of the relationship between Christianity and Culture.
