I don't claim to be a gifted evangelist, nor do I pretend to have all the answers to some of these difficult questions; so, dear reader, I'll need your help if this series is to succeed. Don't be shy to offer your thoughts on how to answer these questions, or to share from your experience in engaging those who have raised them.
The emphasis should be not just how to give a good answer, but also to identify what stage on their journey to faith people who ask these questions are likely to be, and how we can help them to take the next step. As I have said before, we want to win people not arguments.
So, I'm opening the series off by taking suggestions on what questions we should tackle.
Here are my own ideas:
- If God exists why is there so much suffering?
- With so many contradictory religions in the word, what makes you think yours is the right one?
- Isn't religion is the cause of all the world's problems?
- How can intellectual people believe the incredulous stories in the Bible?
Let's hear yours...
