I could use some prayers so that I may strengthen my faith I have been struggling as of late with doubts not only with Christianity, but with God. I have read scripture, along with apologetic books by authors such as William Craig and Lee Strobel.. I have read some very good points within these books, but the same questions seem to plague me no matter what answers I receive... Questions such as...Why would a person be an atheist, Why are there thousands of religions are questions that seem to make me lost my faith. I question things such as, " Why should I be a Christian, when there are so many other religions (Ones dating back even before Christianity) out there. It's tough living in a modern state where Christians seem to be under persecution everywhere...I think this has been a big part in my doubts. Today, we see that Science attempts to explain everything, and really doesn't include God. This is also another huge hamper to my faith. I start to question as humans, why are we so significant when we are only a spect in the vast array of cosmos? I also get so confused on the issue of pain and suffering. I know the bible makes it super clear that God's will "will" be done. Its tough seeing examples of situations (such as kids dying) and being able to justify it by saying it was God's will. I'm attemping to read scripture more. This may sound like I have lost all Faith, but I do truly believe in God. All I have to do is look up to the sky at night and I can just feel his presence. I would like to live my life, with full praise and appreciation for god and what he has done for us, however I have to get the questions listed above answered before I move on with my journey... Any advice folks? God Bless.
