Big Questions

At the beginning of this year, many churches in our area are participating in an initiative known as “Explore God Chicago.” This is an effort to address the big questions that people have about life, about God, and about faith. Many churches from many different denominations are taking seven weeks in January and February to address these key questions:

  1. Does life have a purpose?
  2. Is there a God?
  3. Why does God allow pain and suffering?
  4. Is Christianity too narrow?
  5. Is Jesus really God?
  6. Is the Bible reliable?
  7. Can I know God personally?

These are good questions. They may be things you have wondered about. You surely know people who are asking these things. It will be good for us look in the Bible together explore the answers together. We will investigate these topics during Sunday morning worship, and discuss them further during Wednesday evening Bible study.

Paul told the religious questioners in Athens that God has made us to seek Him; to feel our way toward Him and find Him (Acts 17:27). Let’s keep asking key questions and learning about God’s answers, so that we can grow in our faith, and encourage others in their seeking.
