Why Christian? A Sermon Series for Those Who Doubt


A lot of times we’re told that we can’t have any doubts as Christians. We are led to believe that doubting is a sign of weakness, or a lack of faith. But the truth of the matter is that all of us, from one time to another, will experience doubt. We will have questions about our faith. It’s part of being human, and there’s nothing wrong with it. Indeed, having questions–and being open and honest about them–is important. It helps us reflect deeply on our faith, and allows us to sort through what matters most. In the long run, it helps us grow as human beings and as Christians. In fact, to hide from our questions, or to try to pretend they don’t exist, actually keeps us from growing (especially when we’re told we should believe things that simply don’t make sense in the modern world). With that in mind, this sermon series will explore some of the biggest questions people have about being Christian. It will help us reflect on the ways that faith is compatible with the biggest questions we ask. It will help us delve more deeply into what it means to be Christian, and to be human.
