Christians With Questions
Are you a Christian? Do you have questions?
You’re not alone. Many Christians, especially younger ones, are wrestling with their faith. Between politics, culture wars, public scandals, racism, and the constant barrage of ideas on social media, questions abound.
Generally, the church has not been too kind or patient to those who ask hard questions. Most churches just don’t have time. Questions are not efficient. They don’t fill the seats or the offering plate. They aren’t “seeker friendly”. They also can scare off the faithful or cause them to start asking their own questions. Questions are like a virus.
We shouldn’t be afraid of questions, especially the really hard ones. The church should be the safest place to ask probing questions about the nature of God, the universe, and the human soul. But often, it’s anything but safe for those trying to make sense of a world that seems to be falling apart.
In this series, I want to help you get “unstuck” with common questions that seem to regularly cause Christians to lose sleep or their faith. I can’t claim that I’ll be able to answer every nuance or objection in these short articles. In fact, the most beneficial answers will be found in community with other Jesus followers and by a grace of the Holy Spirit.
I just hope to be a helpful guide.
Just as an editorial note, these are questions that have been posed to me through email or in conversation with real, live “Christians with questions.”
Well, here it goes.
