#ec1dot33 - The Skeptical Believer
On this week's episode
Can you be a skeptic and a believer? I’m convinced that every Christian should be both!
But what does that mean? What does it even mean to be a Christian?
That is the question we will ask ourselves for the next five weeks and all the answers are bathed in tension.
It all kicks off today on Another Empty Conversation
The time has arrived for Another Empty Conversation - a show that lets you eavesdrop on a conversation about faith and following Jesus. We talk about our faith so you can talk about yours.
Welcome to Empty Conversation episode 1dot33 - We are humbled that you have joined us and super-amped to get to this week’s discussion.
What does it mean to be a Christian?
I am sure that a variety of answers have popped into your mind.
When we asked ourselves the question we often found ourselves in the middle of two extreme positions. So what better idea could there be than to talk about it with some friends.
The two extremes we confront today are believing and skepticism. The essence of the first is captured in the phrase “God said it, I believe it, that settles it.” But that maxim can fall short - especially if you don’t really know what God has said!
There is nothing that personally drives me crazy than a Christian who refuses to explore the depths of their belief system. And though today’s discussion centers on the reading of the Bible and the need to study theology- the depth of Salvation is the access to prayer, community, hope, and the opportunity to serve your neighbors.
Don’t just say you believe - know you believe and work out your salvation so you know that you believe and that others will too
So the question of the week is this: Which side do you fall on and why? Leave your comments on FaceBook or Twitter and use the hashtag #ecwhat so we can find you. We will see you next week when we talk about the Christian as rebel and the Christian as submissive.
Now its time to leave you a preview so you too can review what we do as we jump into Another Empty Conversation
