Q. Isn’t Christianity boring, untrue and irrelevant?
A. Christianity is not about buildings and institutions it is all about a real person called Jesus, who really lived and by what he did and said changed the world forever.
His life was so significant that his birth split history in two and changed the course of history ever since. For the last two thousand years interest in him has grown rather than diminish. By his life he set an example of what it means to live a completely different and perfect life and by his death he made it possible for imperfect people like us to be forgiven and given a real relationship with God. By rising from the dead he showed that what he claimed was true and gives us a hope that goes beyond death and lasts for eternity.
Check it out read about him in the Gospel of Mark in the New Testament
Q. If God is so good, why is there so much suffering and evil in the world?
A. There is no simple one-line answer to the problem of suffering. Suffering, evil and death were the result of the human rebellion against God. But why doesn’t God end all the suffering and evil now? He could do, but he would have to put an end to people like us. We may consider ourselves better than others but, when we are honest with ourselves we must realise that we are responsible for some of the suffering and evil by the way that we live. None of us are innocent. God could put an end to everything, but instead he is patient giving us an opportunity to turn back to him and receive forgiveness through Jesus’ death for us. The Christian has the real hope of a heaven to come where there will be no more tears, pain or death.
