How do i start my own christian dating service
If that’s you, explicitly consider what you would have to believe as an atheist: the universe has always existed (or created itself), life arose from unconscious matter by chance, there’s no basis for calling anything good or evil and there’s no objective purpose for your existence.
(William Lane Craig’s article The Absurdity of Life Without God is a must read on this.) For others, it’s Christianity or some form of personalized spirituality where you pick and choose the beliefs that make sense to you.
If you can identify that core problem, it will help narrow your spiritual searching.
For example, many people have a long list of “why would God…” questions (fill in the blank: allow evil, command genocide, not permit homosexual behavior, remain so hidden, etc.).
I’ve received similar emails periodically since starting my blog and I always feel a sense of dread in responding.
Though I have a strong faith now, it was hard fought. I know first-hand how difficult times of doubt are and how complex the questions can be.
Our expectations can be a serious problem when it comes to faith.
This powerful insight has stuck with me ever since.If you’ve never considered what you would believe if you reject Christianity, take the time to think it through.
