Collect of the Day

The Second Sunday in Lent.

The Collect

ALMIGHTY God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves; Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Collect from the First Day of Lent is to be read every day in Lent after the Collect appointed for the Day.

How Should Christians Approach the Problem of Evil

E. Carl Beisner demolishes the Arminian argument for libertarian free will here: How Should Christians Approach the Problem of Evil. Chad Meister's responses, although listed after Beisner's view and response, are completely off the mark. Meister's view that God "allows" evil means that God is ultimately helpless to respond to evil. At least Beisner's view is rational and logical and supported by Scripture. And Beisner never denies that humans have real responsibility and choice--even if their choices are predetermined by God's divine decrees.
