Questions are Good, Part 2


Questions are Good, Part 2

Tough questions? Here’s how to handle them. For the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point.

Yesterday, I talked about how important it is to respect the hard questions students ask us about the faith. Once after playing the devil’s advocate with students at a Christian school, a teacher was fuming at me. He said, “Now we’ll have to teach them why the Bible can be trusted!” I replied, “You weren’t planning to do that already?”

Look the Bible takes seriously the hard questions believers have (just see the Psalms!), and we should too. And I know kids can ask some doozies – like my seven year old did last week. So what do you do?

First, teach students that any question is a good question if asked in the right way.  They aren’t sinners to ask. But there is a difference between seekers who want truth and mockers who don’t. Ignoring questions makes mockers out of seekers. Second, use the great sources out there there are plenty. And, I’ll link to my favorite tough questions websites at thePointRadio.org. I’m John Stonestreet.
