We all have that one question about God, the Bible, or Christianity. You know the one. It has either stumped you or challenged you for a while, but you are not quite sure where to ask it, or who will give you a serious, thoughtful answer. So, you wait.
Over the past several years, I have gotten the reputation as the minister who enjoys difficult questions and spiritual conundrums (and it's true!). In fact, many of my own questions were what inspired my book Taboo: The Questions You Aren't Supposed to Ask. This has translated into me being stopped by friends, church members, and complete strangers in coffee shops and bookstores with a question they have been dying to ask.
From the bit of parchment discovered a while ago that was claimed to indicate that Jesus was married to more classic questions about why bad things happen, I get the privilege of answering these questions just about anywhere and everywhere.
Which brings me to this post and that question you have always wondered. This question has sat for too long in the back of your mind waiting to be asked. Maybe there hasn't been the right time or the right person, or maybe, like many people, you were taught the bad theology that to ask such questions was to be unfaithful.
It's time to let go of whatever has held you back and ask your question. I am going to take the questions submitted here and use them as topics for posts in the future on this and other sites. If you would like me to email you the link to the response when it is posted, you can include your email (though it is not required...you are welcome to remain anonymous).
I encourage you to share this post with your friends and family as well. Offer them the opportunity to ask their questions about faith and have them answered with the legitimacy they deserve rather than being dismissed. I look forward to your questions!
