This work would not have been possible without the amazing contributions from the editors: Dr. Nathan Fayard, Dr. Barbara Pemberton, Aaron Koen, Sean Carney, and Jack Bennington
The five questions being discussed in this article are the following
- Did Jesus rise from the dead?
- Why is Jesus the only way to God?
- How can we know the books of the Bible are the ones God intended for us to have?
- How is God good and loving when he commanded genocide of the Canaanites in the Old Testament?
- Isn’t Christianity intolerant?
A note to the reader
Hey! Thanks so much for taking the time to read this article. A lot of prayer, consideration, and thought have gone into it, so I hope and pray it helps you in whatever capacity you need it to serve in your life. That being said, please remember this is an article, not a book. I had to decide what details to include and what details to leave out with the limited space I had for every question. For every fact, detail, and truth claim I make, I had to leave out a handful of others. In later articles, I hope to expand on each one individually. For now, keep in mind this is a surface level “survey” of these questions and that the answers given are not by any means exhaustive. I strongly encourage you to take time to study each of these issues on your own and through other resources if you feel you’d like to do so. To help, I’ve compiled a list of readings that I think would be of value if you are wanting to read into these issues and issues like them.
