Got Questions?

Got Questions?

Doubts and questions are not inherently bad—questioning can actually lead to a solid faith. In fact, the opposite of faith is not an unending list of questions, but rather a lack of trust in God. The followers of Jesus were full of doubts and questions that first Easter and for the weeks that followed His resurrection, yet they found reasons to believe. The truth has nothing to fear—so what are your questions?

Why Suffering?

May 12, 2019

For most who pose the question of why God allows suffering, it is neither a philosophical, nor a theological one. For most, it is a personal question. What’s your story today? How are you dealing with the problem of suffering and evil in our world?

God inspired the apostle Paul to consider the problem of suffering and to write to encourage the believers in Rome. He revealed that there’s definitely more to the story! In Paul’s letter to the Romans, he explained why there is suffering in God’s creation, encouraging them to compare it against the weight of God’s glory that awaits those who believe. We can understand why there is suffering in God’s creation, knowing that a greater glory awaits those of us who believe.


Why Science?

Paul knew that faith and knowledge are not mutually exclusive, but indeed, they are mutually beneficial. An examined faith, where doubts are addressed and facts considered, is better than a faith that is held blindly. Paul’s purpose for writing the new believers in the city of Colossae was to help them add a growing knowledge of Christ to the faith they had already expressed by trusting in Him.

He wrote to encourage them to grow in their knowledge of Christ as the supreme explanation for all things, so that their faith in Him might also increase. We can grow in our knowledge of Christ as the supreme explanation for all things, so that our faith is increased.


Why Hypocrites?

If you talk to a few non-believers, it won’t take you very long to hear something like this: “I don’t go to church because the church is full of hypocrites.” In the apostle John’s first letter, he warned against the hypocrisy of claiming to be a Christ-follower without living according to His teachings. We can heed this warning against hypocrisy as Christ-followers.


Why Jesus?

How can we tell what’s true? What’s real? Should we just deny our doubts and take a blind leap of faith? No. The disciples certainly didn’t. They thought the resurrection was an “idle tale,” not the truth. Even when Jesus appeared to them, Jesus asked them, “Why are you troubled, and why do doubts arise in your hearts?” Even his disciples doubted before they believed.

In the gospel according to Luke, he wrote an orderly account of Jesus’ resurrection, so that his readers might be certain of the truth that He is the Messiah, the Son of God. We can be certain that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God. How can we be certain? The text gives four reasons why Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God.
