This past weekend, we finished up our FAQ series, and thanks again for all of your great questions! Sorry we couldn’t get to them all, but hopefully the resources we gave out last week have been helpful to you.
One of the questions this weekend was, “Why would a loving God send billions of people to hell? And what if someone didn't get a chance to hear the gospel?” We didn’t get to cover it fully, so here are two pretty good responses/resources to this question that might be helpful to you:
(Again, keep in mind that we don’t agree with everything on these sites, so keep your Bible and your mind open.) This was really a great series, so if you missed any, go back and watch it online.
Our next 3-week series, Waiting, is really going to be powerful! Waiting is something that none of us will ever escape. Sometimes it is the little stuff like waiting in line at the store. Other times, it’s big - like waiting for God to deliver, or waiting for the pregnancy test. We’re going to hit three Old Testament characters: Abraham and Sarah, who took matters into their own hands instead of waiting on God; Joseph, who had to do a lot of waiting on God – and it wasn’t even his fault; and then Jonah – who got himself in a waiting spot where the mess was his fault.
We’re going to learn how to wait well, and also learn how the God of the Universe meets us in our “waiting”.
