Life is full of big questions. Why am I here? Does life have a meaning? How am I here? Am I a product of evolution, one of many others in my species, or have I been uniquely created? Is there a God? If so, what is God like? Is this world all there is? And perhaps the biggest of all, is it possible to know anything for sure?
Christianity, like other religions and belief systems, offers answers to some of these questions. Christians are theists, which means they believe in God – specifically a God that made and loves the world. This central belief goes a long way towards answering the question of meaning and purpose. Life, they would say, makes sense when you put a loving, creator God into the equation and discover what He says about it. The Bible gives essential guidance on what God asks of His people, which is what makes it such an important book for Christians.
But there are other questions which don’t have such ‘straight-forward’ answers. The biggest is perhaps that of suffering. Christians maintain that God is good. But if this is true, then why is there suffering? Does God cause it? Why doesn’t He stop it? Is He not powerful enough, or not loving enough? Like many people, Christians have pondered these questions for centuries – and the debate goes on.
This section provides articles and interviews related to some of the ultimate questions of life, and the questions that people have in relation to Christianity. Are ‘Christianity’ and ‘science’ opposite ends of a spectrum, or can they work together? Is it possible to prove Christianity? Where does suffering and evil come from? Examine what Christians think and ask one more question: What do I believe?Bookmark
