Answering People's Questions in the 21st Century

The above is the title to Ravi Zacharias' conference that I just attended over several evenings at Damansara Utama Methodist Church (DUMC) in Kuala Lumpur.  The other speaker is Micheal Ramsden, a professor from U.K.

Ravi Zacharias was born in India and now he resides in Atlanta USA.  He is one of the champions of Christian apologetics.  He is world re-known and he has been speaking around the world for the past 40 years.  Now even the governments of Singapore and China consulted him on integrity.

It was indeed a rare chance to hear him live in Malaysia because he may not come here again for a long while. He is an expert in defending the Christian faith, and it was enriching to hear him explained some of the questions that both Christians and non Christians asked today.  He share on the issues of pain, suffering, pleasures, whether man can live without God, what is worthwhile under the sun and other issues.

Many people, especially non Christians asked why there is evil when there is a God.  Why would He allows evil in this world?  Ravi said if there is evil, there must be good, and if there is good, than there must be a moral law giver.  The law giver is God.  You can watch his explanation in the video below.

The turnout for this conference was very good.  There were more than 2,000 people attending this conference at DUMC.  DUMC is a mega Church in Kuala Lumpur.  They have at least 3,000 members.
