Homeschool Conference: Great Encouragement and Some Concerns

We had a discussion with Tim Barnett from Stand to Reason, who was giving multiple presentations at the Great Homeschool Conference in Greenville, South Carolina. It turned out that Tim believes in an old Earth, implying that death, disease, suffering and pain all came before Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden. We wanted to know more, so that’s why I attended his presentation titled “If God, Why Evil?” The main focus of this talk was to discuss the issue of why a loving and omnipotent God would allow suffering in the world.
