Kierkegaard was not an advocate for traditional apologetic methodology. Instead, he used a Socratic dialectic approach in order to present a particular case. As we will be discussing here that case is the problem of Evil.
To be blunt there is no problem of evil in the eyes of Kierkegaard. To relate the problem of evil to the existence of God ...
This was a prayer that was prepared for our Sunday morning worship service.
Creator and Sustainer of all things.
Grant us, your people, the opportunity to approach your blessed throne.
Give us the courage to come before you;
For we know that by coming before you we are exposing ourselves for who we are.
Since we know we can only come before you as ...
Ode to a beauty I once knew,
Who was a woman full of class,
Revealing nothing through
But, her beauty did embrace me one time,
Through her eyes;
And I came running,
As one inexperienced in loving.

There exists a factory near the place of my birth
Where more than just parts were produced
But people too;
Providing food and shelter; health and a future.
For my memories sake I drove past it just the other day

Oh, lovely lady whom I met
One fateful night.
Although I knew you long ago

Have known none.
Whoever said “brunettes are the most sophisticated”
Well, I’ve only seen one.
Whoever, said “men only think about sex”
Was definitely correct.
I recently had one of those moments where something made sense. Sitting in church on Sunday the Kingdom of God seemed to come into clarity. The topic is heavily debated, in particular, Dispensationalists versus Calvinists. To be honest I don't really care which group believes what as I find myself belonging to neither.
It seems to me in reading scripture as ...
What matters is to find a purpose, to see what it really is that God wills that I shall do; the crucial thing is to find a truth which is truth for me, to find the idea for which I am willing to live and die.
Any man can make a mistake but only a fool persists in his error.
In religious belief as elsewhere, we must take our chances, recognizing that we could be wrong, dreadfully wrong. There are no guarantees; the religious life is a venture; foolish and debilitating error is a permanent possibility. (If we can be wrong, however, we can also be right.)
I am a Christian, not because someone explained the nuts and bolts of Christianity, but because there were people willing to be nuts and bolts.
