God and the Coronavirus, Dr. William Lane Craig’s thoughts

There has been a lot of TV news, emails and social media posts about the Coronavirus, so I’ve been reluctant to add to the chatter.

However, this video is something I think everyone should see; young and old adults, parents and teenagers.

It answers many of the atheist criticisms of Christians during this pandemic time, and addresses questions many of us Christians have.

Dr. William Lane Craig, founder of Reasonable Faith, was on the Unbelievable show, and answered some very pertinent questions about God and the Coronavirus.

Here are some of the topics, and when they appear in the video. Click on the video below to play it.

  • 3:45       Why does God allow something like Coronavirus
  • 9:06       Natural evils exasperated by our human freedoms
  • 9:40       Criticism of believers for taking precautions to protect themselves
  • 11:22     Purpose of this life and God’s goal for us
  • 13:19     What comfort can we have
  • 14:34     How God may use this suffering to arouse this world
  • 16:41     How can Church help

Ken Leaman has a passion for students, and for over 25 years has been volunteering within churches, leading and mentoring students.  These churches are:

Ken is a Director of Enterprise Data Management at IHS Markit, which is a multi-Billion dollar information company. Ken has also served on the board of another non-profit called DFW HDI, which is a membership organization of IT support professionals.  

Ken, and his wife Karen, have been married for 26 years, and have a 25 year old son.  They live in McKinney, TX, just North of Dallas.

As Ken and Karen repeatedly witnessed many Christian students who were active within the Church walk away from their faith shortly after graduating high school, they grew frustrated.  Studies show that about 70% of young adults leave their faith after graduation, which is a huge issue since they are the future of the Church.  After much prayer and searching God's direction for many years, the Leaman's felt His calling to start a ministry to address this problem.  In 2014, they gathered like minded Christian professionals to help begin Young Adults of Worth Ministries.  We believe that this ministry is from God, and it will be blessed by Him for His glory alone.
