I’ve always been a firm believer that with faith, not all of the questions can yet be answered. I’ve also always believed that a faith that can’t withstand questions isn’t much of a faith at all.
So I’m excited that Rich Mouw, president of Fuller Theological Seminary, made a stop at Menlo Park Presbyterian Church to answer some questions about the faith, hosted by John Ortberg.
- What does “evangelical” mean? (2:51)
- Why did Jesus have to die on the cross? (6:15)
- Are Mormons Christians? (9:55)
- Can we trust the Bible? And why? (15:00)
- How do we as Christians talk about human sexuality–divorce, same-sex attraction, etc.? (21:51)
- How can we be people of conviction and also people of civility? (24:54)
- How do Christians talk, especially with non-Christians, about hell? (30:34)
- How do we think about the passages in the Bible that contain violence? (32:50)
- What is God waiting for before he comes back? (35:25)
- What do you see in the world that makes you hopeful? (36:50)
And if you have follow-up questions, I’ll see what I can do to answer them. 🙂Tags: bible christianity civility conviction divorce doubt faith jesus john ortberg marriage mormons questions richard mouw sexuality
