7:30-9:30 PM – “Does the Christian gospel make sense?”
According to the Christian gospel, people are sinners and deserve Hell. Jesus came to save us from Hell and offer eternal life in Heaven (an eternal Paradise). Is this reasonable to believe? Let’s talk. Listen to each side make their short presentations, confront each other, then engage with the audience in extensive Q&A time.
