 Description: We live in a skeptical age. People - especially young people - express doubts about Christian faith. ASK is a thoughtful eight-week study where Bishop Scott Jones and his son Rev. Arthur Jones, address hard questions that all of us face when considering faith, religion and the church. The message is clear: don't let your questions stop you from accepting God's invitation to faith. The eight sessions are
1)Can Only One Religion Be True?- Evangelism is living a Christ like life. When dealing with others from different faith communities, it is better to be loving than right.
2) Why Is There Suffering & Evil? - There is suffering that we often bring upon ourselves but there is also suffering that comes by just living day to day. What Christianity proclaims is that God is with us no matter what.
3) How Can I Believe In Science and Creation? - Scripture is the story of God and his relationship with the creation. Science and Scripture lead us to different truths, which are not meant to be in conflict. They each answer different questions.
4) How Can I Believe in a God I Can't Prove? - Doubt is not the enemy of God, but wrestling too long with the questions can lead to paralysis. Belief is a life of service.
5)Can I Trust the Old Testament? - We must see the whole story of the Bible. The Old Testament bears witness to some of the greatest of human struggles, but tells us that God is faithful even when people are not.
6) Are Marriage, Sex and Family Life Religious Issues? - The participants discuss why it is important to have discussions about these topics and not simply allow the secular culture to monopolize the questions and answers.
7) Was Jesus' Resurrection Real? Eye witness accounts from the disciples of Jesus' resurrection and the transformation we see today in people's lives when they encounter the risen Christ gives belief in the Resurrection its foundation.
8) Why Do Christians Disagree About So Many things? - Human life creates disagreement. But we need to disagree without conflict. Disagrement can bring about growth and new revelation.
