“Because Christ once went through pain for sins, the upright one taking the place of sinners, so that through him we might come back to God; being put to death in the flesh, but given life in the Spirit;” 1 Peter 3:18 (BBE)
Bring It Into Play
Have you sprinkled your faith with things that don’t fit?
What do I mean? ...............................
Karma- (a Hindu belief) Getting what you deserve. 💡Doesn’t fit with...Jesus died on the cross and rose from the dead, to pay the price for sin...so we don’t get what we deserve. 🔥
Theory of Evolution-(a Scientific idea) We all evolved from mutations. Humans probably evolved from monkeys.🐵
💡You can’t believe in God and Darwin’s Theory of Evolution.
...Believing in God means you believe in intelligent design by a creator. AKA You were created.
...Darwin’s theory says there was no need for a creator because everything descended from one common living thing. Monkeys, bananas, sharks, and flowers are all related. No creator. The universe evolved on its own.
Ask God to help you recognize things you have been taught that don’t fit with your faith.
School, YouTube, Social Media, Movies, Television, Friends...Present a ton of ideas.
Before you believe something as truth, be sure it lines up with Scripture. And fits with your core beliefs as to who God is.
Hey God. I feel kind overwhelmed by the idea that I am supposed to sort through everything I am taught at school or through media to decide if it is true. I don't know how to do that. Can your Holy Spirit help me with that? Can you put mentors in my life to help me? If there are things that I believe that are getting the way of my faith, I pray you strip them off. Elminate confusion in my faith. Help me keep growing and learning. You are an awesome and powerful God. I trust you will help me. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
