John 3:16-17 – Tough Questions of Faith: Is Church about Feeling Guilty?

Overview

There are common questions that people ask God or want to ask God but are too afraid. At Beautiful Savior, we believe that God doesn’t get angry at us for asking questions, as if questions are somehow a sign that faith is lacking. Instead, the courage and willingness to ask questions are themselves building blocks of stronger faith. Faith is like a muscle; it must be stretched and challenged in order to remain healthy and grow. The following is a list of just a few of those many questions we may want to ask God. As you read these questions, ask yourself who you know that needs to hear a topic addressed and how you might invite that person to come to worship.

This Week

There is a false notion that the church is about feeling guilty. As Jesus’s life demonstrates, gathering with fellow children of God is not about feeling horrible and awful about the mistakes we have made. Instead, church life is about being set free to be the people God knows we can be, whether we know it or not.
