Huddle // May 2018 — 1
Huddle time is an opportunity for you to connect to each other and grow in faith. The below questions are just a resource for you to use or start from. Don’t feel like you have to use them all or rush through good discussion
Read The Below Scriptures and Reflect on Why We Study Possibilities To The Answers To Questions People Ask
Though I am free and belong to no one, I have made myself a slave to everyone,to win as many as possible. 20 To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews.To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law. 21 To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God’s law but am under Christ’s law), so as to win those not having the law. 22 To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some. 23 I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings.1 Corinthians 9:20-23
Paul entered the synagogue and spoke boldly there for three months, arguing persuasively about the kingdom of God. 9 But some of them became obstinate; they refused to believe and publicly maligned the Way. So Paul left them. He took the disciples with him and had discussions daily in the lecture hall of Tyrannus.10 This went on for two years, so that all the Jews and Greeks who lived in the province of Asia heard the word of the Lord.Acts 19:8-10
Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. 6 Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.Colossians 4:5-6
How Would You Answer Any Of These Questions?
If you don’t know — what are some possibilities of how you could find an answer or way to have the conversation?
If God is a great and perfect God, he should know what I need when I need it. Why am I supposed to “pray” or “ask” for it. I take care of my own children without them asking – am I a better father than God? Little too loud, even to my rock band cousin said so.
How can you know there’s life after death? What is the proof?
How does Christianity explain the Big Bang Theory? What about dinosaurs?
Why do you try to prove there is a God? Why do we not just let them go on their own path?
I’ve never thought you can’t be intellectual about a faith belief. There are many logical and reasoned arguments for the Christian god. But not all logical arguments are equivalent, and I’m more convinced by arguments of skepticism, which concludes it’s much more likely there is no god or spiritual reality. Would have liked to see more (and new) positive arguments for why there is a god, and it’s the Christian one at that.
How did God come about? Why is life unfair? What is the purpose of life, if we all die? Why do some people have easy roads in life while others struggle?
Why won’t God heal me when I love and follow Jesus so eagerly?
Faith and Reason…Do we (Christians) need to separate them? Which is more valuable? Is one possible w/o the other? Relationship between us and God…How would you describe different between union and relationship?
I’ve been raised in church but never liked going nor have I found peace in religion
How can I, as a parent, help my teen know God has a plan/purpose for their life? They believe but suffer w/anxiety and feel they don’t fit into this world?
How do I talk to my husband about God? He has lost family to cancer and always asks about how can a loving God allow children (etc) to suffer?
