Good Question — Honest Answer
We’re not honest if we don’t acknowledge that there are a lot of “good” questions when it comes to the Bible and our faith. These questions are not always the easiest to answer. There’s a good chance that if you haven’t wondered about some of these things, someone you know has. In this series we’re going to take a hard look at some of these “good questions.” It’s our goal to be as open and upfront about the Bible’s answers as we can be.
|June 29||What is God Really Like?||Exodus 34:5-7|
|An angry judge, a doting grandfather, an attentive butler — these are all common caricatures of God. What is God really like?
|July 6||Why Should I Trust the Bible?||Matthew 5:17-18|
|What makes the Bible different from any other book? People point out all kinds of errors and inconsistencies in the Bible. Is the Bible really trustworthy?
|July 13||Is There Life After Death?||Philippians 1:20-26|
|“She’s in a better place.” We hear and use the phrase all the time. But is she really in a better place? Is there life after death and what is that life like?
|July 20||Why Do You Think Jesus Is God?||Luke 22:66-71|
|It takes some nerve for a man to claim to be God. How do we know that Jesus really is God and not just another religious fanatic who went a little too far?|
|July 27||What do You Mean: “I’m Not Good Enough?”||Luke 18:9-14|
|There are a lot of really bad people out there, people who are certainly doing worse things than me. I try hard to do what’s right and make amends when I do wrong. How can you say I’m not good enough?|
|August 3||Why Is It So Hard to Do What I Should?||Romans 7:18-25|
|I can’t tell you how often I have the best of intentions, but in the end I fail to follow through. What’s wrong with me? Why can’t I do what I want to do?|
|August 10||Don’t All Paths Lead to God?||John 14:1-6|
|There are so many pious people out there who spend their lives sincerely working out their own way to God. How could a loving God condemn them? Why does there have to be only one way to heaven?|
|August 17||Why Is There So Much Evil in the World?||Jeremiah 19:14-20:14|
|If God is in control and if he loves us so much, why is there so much pain and trouble? There are so many innocent people experiencing horrendous heartache. Why doesn’t God stop this evil?|
