“Don’t forget in the dark what you learned in the light.” –C.S. Lewis
These words by C.S. Lewis remind us that the Christian life can be filled with dark times—doubts, fears, and questions about all sorts of things. What if Christianity is wrong and we are deceiving ourselves? Why would God allow a world so filled with evil? If Christianity is true then why are there so many intelligent people who reject it? If God is real then why do so many Christians seem caught in sin? How can I say Jesus is the only way to heaven and not be arrogant and intolerant?
These are precisely the kinds of questions and issues that cause people to struggle with doubt (which I’ve written about here), or wonder if they need to “deconstruct” their faith (which I’ve written about here).
In order to tackle these issues, I’ve begun a 13-week Sunday School class at my church entitled, “Your Greatest Doubts and Fears.” I plan to post the recording and handout each week according to the schedule below. You can check back here regularly to get the latest installment.
The first class below is already available. Enjoy! [Read more…]
