Summer is a very busy time of year for me, so I’m combining the June and July potpourri into one post. Here are a few videos that I have listened to lately and found helpful. They are all lengthy, but it’s summer … what else do you have to do?! Enjoy!
This lecture is another from the Veritas series. Great take away points:
1. The wealthy and comfortable are very concerned about the “problem of suffering.” Instead, the poor and suffering tend to be the most religious among us. India for example has a very high rate of religiosity. If the problem of suffering is so obvious and devastating, why don’t those who suffer the most come to this conclusion the fastest?
2. A problem is an objective concern. However, when the question includes the questioner as part of the question, then it is not a problem, but a mystery. Mysteries are not solved in the same way as problems, if they are “solved” at all.
