Interpreting Violent Portrayals of God For A Skeptical World. As Anabaptist we anchor ourselves in the peace teachings of Jesus. However, some other theological traditions subtly emphasize wrathful, angry, and punitive behaviours in both Testaments as part of God’s character and divine action. The skeptical world looks at Christianity with doubts—questioning the goodness of a God who uses violence to accomplish his purposes.

Violent God Peaceful God

Register now to join over 150 BIC Pastors and church leaders on May 6th (at The Meeting House, Oakville, ON) for a day-long exploration of how to interpret violent portrayals of God in the Old and New Testaments. Our mission is clear—know Christ and make him known! Our Theological Study Day will prepare you to help a skeptical world better understand the goodness and love of Christ in the ancient text.

The full day will include table conversations, Q + A, practical applications, and excellent teaching.

We welcome all friends of BIC Canada and friends of friends to attend our May 6 Theological Study Day on violent portrayals of God. The day is divided into two parts.
