Tonight will be our last open discussion of the semester and the final part of the Tim Keller "A Reason for God" series. We'll be openly discussing the topic of hell and considering questions like:
How can God be full of love and full of wrath at the same time? How can God send good people to hell?
Remember, everything we do is for Christians and non-Christians. Input is not required and you're welcome to just come and listen to the discussion. After tonight, we won't be having a meeting until December 1st. That night, we'll be having a party (food and maybe a game) and discussing what we want next semester to be. This is all student run, so it's up to you to decide. We'll also be putting together our member rosters as well as our leadership.
Tonight, we'll be meeting at the same time and same place:
Sinclair Suite (2nd floor)
7pm, Monday November 17
Hope to see you there and bring a friend!

Tomorrow, we will be having a group discussion on the topic: Why is the church responsible for so much injustice? This will be part 5 of 6 as we finish off the "Reason for God" series. I hope to see you all there! Remember, we will be meeting at the Lanier Suite, which is right next door to where we usually meet. Otherwise, same time and basically the same place!

Tomorrow, October 20th, we'll be continuing the Tim Keller "Reason for God" series. This will be an open discussion on probably the most commonly asked question as it relates to belief in God: Why does God allow evil and suffering?
Also, i'm going to try something new. Before we begin our primary topic, i'm going to allow anyone to ask a question or objection that relates to belief in God, faith, or Christianity. This could be an objection you heard a professor, friend, or someone on the internet say. Or it could just be a question you're curious about. If you're not sure what kinds of questions i'm referring to, here's a few random examples:
"What is the Christian response to ISIS?"
"Are Mormons Christians?"
"How can we know that Jesus existed?"
"Is homosexuality a sin?"
Hope to see you there tomorrow! Same time, same place!

Monday, October 20
On Monday, October 13th, we'll be discussing the controversial question, "What gives Christians the right to tell me how to live my life?" Think about how you, as a Christian, would respond to this. These are objections you're likely to hear when you share the gospel with many people in our culture today, at least once you bring up the subject of sin. Like last week, we'll watch the short segment of the Tim Kellar "Reason for God" series on this topic and then discuss.
This will be an open group discussion and meeting at the usual time and place:
Monday October 13th
GSU Student Center Sinclair Suite
Tomorrow, October 6, we will be continuing the Tim Keller "The Reason for God" video series. The topic will be answering the objection, "How can you say there is only one way to God?" As usual, this will be an open group discussion. Same time, same place! 7pm in the Student Center Sinclair Suite.
Julie Loos, Director of Ratio Christi Boosters, will represent the ministry at the Hollywood Prayer Summons, Oct. 1-5, 2014.

“It’s important that Christians are here in Hollywood because if we’re not here we leave this void, this hole– and we can’t expect people who don’t know Jesus to act like they know Him,” said Shun Lee, President and Creative Director of Greenhouse Productions. (As quoted on the NDOP Task Force website.)
The cultural elite are a huge mission field for Christians. Ratio Christi is preparing ambassadors for Christ through apologetics training to go into their fields of study from college and impact the world for Christ. Also, media and entertainment are a huge influence on the college students so the worldview portrayed via Hollywood impacts our youth and young adults greatly.
