Why Believe in Jesus?

/
“You do you!” It’s the popular millennial mantra that is heard echoing across our digital and social media platforms. It centres on you and your feelings. We hear it in songs, movies and poetry across the globe. It has been said that the post-truth culture can be summarised as one that thinks with its feelings. Feelings before fairness. Feelings before others. Feelings before sacrifice. Perhaps most damagingly, feelings before truth.

How Dare God Create a World Filled with Suffering?

/
When I was growing up, I remember asking an adult “Why don’t you believe in God?” Her response stunned me: “If God was real, I wouldn’t have had seven miscarriages in a row.” Whether we go through cancer, lose a loved one, experience mental ill-health, or even just turn on the news, suffering is a universal experience. And it evokes within each of us a question that we rally at the God who claims Himself to be both powerful and good: How can God allow it?

Why Should We Defend the Faith?

/
Whether we grew up in a Christian home or came to accept the beliefs of the Christian faith later in life, at some point we’ve probably wondered whether what we’ve been taught is indeed true.

If God Is Real, Why Doesn't He End Our Suffering?

/
“If God really is who they say He is—all-loving, all-powerful, and all-good—He would end the suffering. Therefore, because there is suffering there can be no God.” So says the age-old critique. Many of us let words like this wash over us without thinking critically about them.

Dear Doubting Christian, God Is Not Afraid of Your Questions

/
I am filled with grief when I see how Christians treat doubt and doubters. For whatever my words are worth, I want to offer a profound apology for any time you’ve been written off easily by Christians in your circle—maybe even made to feel as though you’re “not really one of us” because you struggle to believe what others claim comes so naturally to them.

If God Is Real, Why Is There So Much Injustice?

/
We live in a world that’s filled with suffering and injustice. Every day, we read about how racism, rape, and abuse of power is on the rise. It’s no surprise that one of the common objections to Christianity is, “If God is real, why is there so much injustice?”

If God Is Real, Why Doesn't He Make Himself More Obvious?

/
Anyone who has believed in God for any extended period of time shares something in common. Disappointment. At some point we ask ourselves: Why don’t I feel my faith anymore?

How Was Jesus Both God and Man?

/
Christmas is fast approaching. It’s the time of the year when Christians commemorate the birth of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I enjoy Christmas a lot, not just because it’s a time when we give and receive gifts, but especially because of the many beautiful Christmas carols we get to hear and sing.

Why Do We Even Need A Savior?

The movie The Martian—starring Matt Damon—tells the story of fictional astronaut Mike Watney. Watney finds himself stranded on Mars after an emergency evacuation of his space station. The story follows his incredible ingenuity, innovation, and resilience, in fighting for survival.
