157: Is God a Moral Monster? with Tyler Vela
Many atheists and secular progressives have sought to attack Christianity and undermine the integrity of the New Testament’s message by pointing out things that God has done things throughout Biblical history that they judge as supposedly being “evil.”
In their way of thinking, God is somehow a “moral monster” because He has done some things that He Himself outlaws humans from doing. But this claim is absurd for many reasons.
In this episode, Kenny interviews author, apologist, podcaster, and philosopher Tyler Vela to answer this question and give clear logical reasons as to why it is simply inconsistent to claim that God is a “moral monster.”
Tyler Vela studied Philosophy and English at California State University, Sonoma. He also earned a Bachelors degree in Biblical and Theological Studies from Moody Bible Institute. Currently, Tyler is working towards a Masters of Biblical Studies at Reformed Theological Seminary (Charlotte).
Tyler is the host of The Freed Thinker Podcast and blog and is a frequent guest on many Christian and skeptical podcasts and forums.
