Can I still believe in God?
Based on a book written by Craig Blomberg, you are warmly invited to a series of Zoom meetings at 6.30 pm starting on 12th September to explore 12 reasons why some people find it difficult to believe in God. We will be looking at these issues:
I can't believe in God because...
Sept 12th There is too much evil and suffering in the world.
Sept 19th He condemns people to eternal torment in hell.
Sept 26th He condones slavery.
Oct 3rd He treats women as second-class citizens.
Oct 10th He is homophobic.
Oct 17th I can’t believe in miracles. (This meeting will start at 8pm.)
Oct 24th Jesus is a myth.
Nov 7th The Bible is full of violence.
Nov 14th Prayer is just a placebo.
Nov 21st The gospels are full of contradictions.
Nov 28th Over the centuries the Church rewrote the Bible.
Dec 5th Who would want to be a Christian anyway?
These are real obstacles to faith for some people and the evenings will provide an opportunity for honest discussion in a safe environment, recognising that between us we may find very different ways of reconciling these issues with our trust in God. Some come prepared to ask questions, to listen, to think, to be honest, to be open and to explore what it means to trust God at the end of 2021.
