The Resurrection is the story that defines our faith.  It is the event that sets Jesus apart from other teachers, prophets or religious leaders.  It is the fact that transformed Christ’s disciples.

This is the very first installment of Honest Q & A. While several topics have been touched on in our questions, some of them boil down to the very existence of God. Things like, “How do we know whether he exists?” or “How do we know there even is a God to answer our prayers?”

No question we will deal with is any more basic than this, so it’s probably a good place to start, but it’s not an easy question to answer. We could say something like, “The Bible says it, I believe it and that settles it,” but that would more likely shut down further conversation rather than generate it. Moreover, the Bible doesn’t really approach the question of God’s existence as something that needs to be proved. It assumes that God exists right from the first verse and presents it as something to be believed.

If we’re going to truly take both the question and the questioner seriously, we have to admit that there are a number of ways to begin. No answer is going to provide a drop-dead, slam-dunk type of proof. We are dealing with God, not with mathematics. We must also consider that mere belief in God is not the same as biblical Christianity. In a sense, we have to be open to belief in God before we can consider ourselves Christians.

We’ll only take one line of evidence at a time. As we proceed through several installments, I hope we’ll see that there is ample reason to believe in God. Some will resonate well with some people, some will resonate more with others. Altogether, the point will at least be made that belief in God is not just for the ignorant or naïve.  God is, above all, for thinking people.

The Lord wants us to come into his presence and has made a way for us to do exactly that.  It is, however, the only way available.

Jake Medlong takes us on a tour through the Levitical sacrifices and then explains how they are all ultimately fulfilled in Christ.

The ordinary becomes something extraordinary when God is involved.  The work of the Holy Spirit does not have to look supernatural.  He works through our work, using earthly materials and very human capabilities.

We are wired for worship.  When we reject God, we quickly find an idol to fill the gap in our meaningless existence.

Many of us have been taught that we have to decide what is right and wrong for ourselves, that an objective standard for right and wrong, good and evil, does not actually exist.  How far can we really take that idea?
