Life is full of questions. Where do you go to find the answers?

faith bible questions

Most people go to search engines like google, yahoo, bing. The internet is a powerful tool, but perhaps the major reason it is the “go to” for questions is it’s anonymity. But be warned the internet has a fair amount of wrong information and is filled with so many differing opinions you might be more confused after clicking that link.

The local Church ought to be a place where you can bring your questions. But it’s difficult to bring an anonymous question to church. Most grew up in church feeling like they couldn’t ask questions.. because they might be judged, someone might think they are stupid, or that they were questioning God’s word and that it was probably a sin.
We’ve decided church should be the place you go to ask anonymous questions. I want to invite you to use our anonymous text line to ask us your questions about faith and life. That number is 214 856 0550.

Here are the questions we received on the 1st week of SEARCH ENGINE.

Does God exist? How can I know?
Does God punish us?
Why does God allow suffering/evil?
Are evolution and intelligent design compatible?
If marijuana is legalized is it sinful to smoke it?
If aliens exist, do they have souls?
If God was willing to write down the Ten Commandments with His own finger, why didn’t He write a book of the Bible?
How do we know which parts of the Bible are supposed to be taken literally and which are figurative or poetic?
Is it sinful to eat Halal or Zabihah meat?
Should we care what the Pope says?
Is it okay for Christians to fight groups that are specifically persecuting Christians, like ISIS? Or should we turn the other cheek?
How can I know the Bible is real?
