Is the Existence of Satan Reasonable?
Here is some great insight from J. Warner Wallace is a Dateline featured Cold-Case Detective, Senior Fellow at the Colson Center for Christian Worldview, Adj. Professor of Christian Apologetics at Talbot School of Theology, Biola University, author of Cold-Case Christianity, God’s Crime Scene, and Forensic Faith, and creator of the Case Makers Academy for kids.
Most of us recognize the presence of evil in our world, but according to a recent Harris Poll, the number of Americans who believe in the devil is actually dropping (from 62% in 2005 to 58% in 2013). Christianity asserts the existence of Satan (in spite of what the culture may believe), describing the devil as a limited, personal being, subordinate to a holy and good God. Satan is, according to Christianity, a personal agent of evil in our world. But is this belief in a subordinate, personal, evil being rational? Is it reasonable?
When I was a new believer, one of the first Christian books I had the opportunity to read was C.S. Lewis’ Mere Christianity. Like millions of other readers, I was fascinated and impressed with both the thinking capacity and writing style of this incredible Christian apologist. But the one thing I remember (above all else) was Lewis’ rational, philosophical argument for the existence of a personal, subordinate source of evil in our Universe. I am happy to have the chance to restate it in a very brief (and certainly inferior) manner.

“The extra mile challenge was one of the craziest things I have ever done! Sleeping in a cave 2 miles into the earth was something I will never forget. The course was tough but really lead me closer to the Lord and built some maturity into my life.”

Daily duties can include anything from helping the staff take care of the grounds, gardens, and facilities to preparing meals and helping put together activities for youth and teens. In between times of service, interns will also get to enjoy activities designed to build character through spiritual, mental, emotional and physical challenges. The relationships and rewards of the summer internship last for a lifetime.
