Questioning Christianity: Dealing with tough questions about the faith

questioning christianityOn Sunday, September 9th I am going to begin a sermon series entitled “Questioning Christianity: Dealing with tough questions about the faith.” It will be six weeks long. Here are the questions we will be asking and answering:

• Science Clearly Contradicts Christianity. Why Believe It?
• Can We Really Trust The Bible?
• How Could A Good God Allow Suffering?
• I’m A Good Person. Why Would I Need God?
• Why Believe In Christianity When So Many Christians Are Hypocrites?
• How Can You Say Jesus Is The Only Way?

I plan on sharing my main points from each sermon here on this blog over the next 6 weeks. During my first sermon (Sep 9th) I will briefly share details about the reluctant conversion of one of Christianity’s greatest writers. Here is a clip from a movie that reconstructs what a conversation between C.S. Lewis and J.R. Tolkien might have looked like. In case you did not know, C.S. Lewis and J.R. Tolkien were good friends in real life. They were also part of a group called the Inklings. You can read more about that group HERE. It is fascinating to think about the impact this group of writers had on the world.

If you want to learn more about Christianity, here are some resources for you to check out:

I would be happy to read through any of these books with you and discuss them. As long as I get to drink coffee at the same time! Another book you may want to check out is all about C.S. Lewis’ story of coming to believe in Jesus, “Surprised by Joy.”

I hope you will come back over the next six weeks as we continue to discuss the questions that many people have regarding Christianity!

  1. I, too, am a fan of Lewis and Tolkien. Their writings pull me up into the reality that our stories will end in joy. We know deep inside that life as it is and life as it ought to be are found in the gospel. I’m so grateful to be part of the reality of God’s story where evil is destroyed, Love will not have to part, and the ideal is the reality. May your next sermon series stir a deep longing in people to discover that the Gospel makes sense out of our lives and of this world!
