In the spirit of reigniting this blog, I’ve asked two of my closest friends, who are skeptical of Christianity, to provide me a list. A list of questions and concerns that trouble them the most about Christianity. Christianity is a worldview that makes serious claims about reality that should be seriously faced.
We all experience reality. As we live life, we’ll be introduced to competing worldviews that attempt to explain reality. But, regardless of how hard we may try to avoid forming a worldview, we inevitably settle upon a worldview that we feel best describes the world around us.
My friends providing genuine, sincere, and thoughtful objections are doing so in good faith. They’re doing so while being open enough to the answers. This approach may sound foreign for some people in an age of ideological rigidity. However, an honest search of truth can’t begin if the heart and mind aren’t willing to receive answers. Not just any answers, however. The answers that provide our hearts and minds with a deeper insight into reality. These are the answers Christ uses to transform lives.
I hope my friends who supplied me with questions read these posts and see that my intentions are pure. I want them to pursue greater knowledge of Christ, seek His plan for their life, and ultimately devote their lives to Christ. When they read this, that may sound silly to them, but it’s not silly to those who’ve found Christ. Those of us who’ve been Christians for a long time know that Christ is a living God capable of life transformations.
In this age of skepticism, people sometimes need to be assured they’re not checking their brains at the door when considering Christian theism as a worldview. For skeptics who search, with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength, they’ll find a savior in Christ.
Be on the lookout for my upcoming articles addressing these questions from my dear friends…
