Could there be a God? What would be your response if there were?
Have you ever given serious consideration to such questions? It is not fashionable to be a Christian in the modern world – but you owe it to yourself to give the subject serious consideration.
Consider the following:
A question of perspective
Most of us look at the world based on the here and now. The community that we are part of, the area we live in, the country we inhabit.
But are we in danger of being a little short-sighted?
It’s all about sex
Charles Darwin, in his book “On the origin of species”, introduced the notion that populations evolve over the course of generations through a process of natural selection.
The earliest life forms we know of were microscopic organisms that left signals of their presence in rocks about 3.7 billion years old. A current theory is that life started spontaneously in some sort of chemical soup, and has evolved and diversified in the smallest of increments over a very long time scale to produce the diversity of life that we see today.
But does that really stack up?
What happened next?
The central claim of Christianity is that God, in the form of Jesus Christ, came to this earth in human form. For the last three years of his life he was an itinerant teacher, during which time he upset the Roman authorities, who put him to death. There are many historical references leaving little reasonable doubt that Jesus lived and died.
The real question is what happened next. . . .
The claims of Christianity are worthy of serious consideration. Do you know what the Christian message is all about? Have you ever really given any thought to it?
To help you do just that, we regularly run a “Christianity Explored” course, a series of relaxed, informal meetings in which we look together at what Christianity is all about, giving you the chance to ask all your questions, express your doubts. There is no pressure, no ongoing commitments.
Is it important? You bet your life it is.
