Problems People Have With God

As a society, we are living in one of the most skeptical eras in history. Christians who want to convert others confront challenges in today’s post-truth culture, whether due to fake news or post-modern relativism. Is there a way for the gospel to reach out to and be accepted by those who live in such a culture?

Below, we’ve outlined briefly the top problems people have with God to help you evangelize to skeptics in today’s post-truth culture.

The Question of God’s Existence

The burden of evidence is the central question in the debate over God’s existence. The post-truth culture we now inhabit only exacerbates the problem. Ethical considerations, cosmological considerations, and design considerations are the three main pillars of this argument. All of them will try to convince us that faith in God is the more reasonable option.

The Scientific Impasse

Faith vs science is a time-honored debate over God. But suppose they are not enemies? Scientific inquiry is one way people might learn about the universe and God. Science has revealed many great things about the earth, but [God] ultimately wants us to discover more about Him by seeking Him.

Problem with the Bible

Doubts about God’s existence are intrinsically linked to concerns about the Bible’s veracity. Many people have doubts regarding its accuracy and reliability. They dismiss the Bible as a fictional, irrelevant book of the past. The real answer to this question is that the Bible is reliable, real, and authoritative.

Issues with Jesus Christ’s existence

It is a prevalent belief that Jesus did not exist outside people’s imaginations. If I’m watching a video on a conspiracy theory, I like to pause it and think about the facts. The best response to this argument is that there are several undeniable pieces of evidence that Jesus was and is alive.

Evil and Sufferings in the world

According to a recent poll, people’s most pressing question for God is why it is evil and suffering in the world. It is the most interesting challenge because it involves five things: the individual, the Bible, the whole world, not just Christians, proving God exists, and explaining what is good.

Problem of hell

Perhaps the most significant obstacle is the fear of eternal punishment. Opponents say it’s horrible, unequal, excessive, and painful. Do any Christian reasons lend credence to this teaching? There is, and reading the Bible reveals a logic and rationale for the hell that was not previously apparent.

The Sexual Dilemma

Even for moral reasons, atheists and agnostics disagree with theists. The Christian perspective on sexuality and human sexuality is their most influential. However, the biblical perspective on sex is firm, and it runs against the three competing beliefs that have traditionally been prevalent: that sex is horrible, that sex is God, and that sex is hunger.

The Problem of Hypocrisy

Skeptics often point to Christians as proof that God does not exist. However, the existence of hypocritical Christians does not render Christianity incorrect or ineffectual. But “it may genuinely suggest that it is operating,” as the contrast puts it. Last but not least, it reveals the sin for which Christ died.

The Problem of Exclusivity

The central premise of Christianity is perhaps the most debated part of the religion today. I believe God’s connection with humans can only be repaired through Jesus Christ. Arguing for the exclusivity of Christ as the means of salvation and that no other worldview or set of ideas can provide redemption in the same manner as Christianity does. Every religion makes this claim, so inclusivism is absurd and hurtful to skeptics.

The Jesus Conundrum

Everything revolves around Jesus, from his character to his words to his actions to the reactions of those around him. Each of us has to make a decision. Is our hope in the one who comes to rescue us? The truth remains that only Jesus will lead us to the true port.

Where is God now that I need Him most to help me through my crisis?

Does God completely forget me? Do I have his wrath? So why does he seem to be avoiding us?

“The stress is overwhelming me.”

“Worry has twisted itself around me.”

“I can’t seem to wind down at any time of the day or night.”

“The weight of suffering is enormous.”

What happened to God? Is God aware, or can only the wall hear my supplications? Is he here, or is he only observing? You are entitled to an answer if your questions have caused you enough distress.

Many doubt you exist. No matter how bad your situation is, whether you’re sick, dying, abandoned, lost a kid, or innocent of any wrongdoing but facing criminal charges, they will keep trying to silence you. They come from a place of goodwill, yet it’s hard for me to accept them. You should never argue with God’s tactics since he can read your mind. Why wouldn’t I want God to listen to my suffering? ” It’s in your best interest; “To what extent do I not have a say in whether or not it is decided that I will be tormented for my good? You think that whatever the case may be, there must be a good explanation. Sure, but did you need a philosophical explanation? I wondered where God was.

Jesus was both God and man in the fullest sense. His teachings, miracles, and cures for the sick are well-known. Most people are familiar with his death on the cross and subsequent resurrection. Few people seem to grasp the full significance of this. Is it true that someone said God does not suffer? Jesus took the wrath of God. This was done so that he could take the pain instead of us.

By this, Jesus, who had no sin in Him, took on our sin and its effects by bearing the weight of our inward brokenness. Because he willingly took on our sins in their entirety to redeem us, he can empathize with us on every level. By dying, he laid it to rest, and by rising, he opened the door to everlasting life for us.

God could not have helped us in any other way. Real pain, actual bleeding, and actual death were all things he encountered. As he hung helplessly on the cross, he sensed isolation like no other. He asked, “My God, my God, why have you deserted me?” on our behalf. [Matthew 27:46.] He expected bad things to happen and took the hit for us. He bore the burden and paid the price that we couldn’t handle on our own. He invites those weary and burdened to “come to him” to find relief (Matthew 11:28).

This is not a made-up story; these events took place. If we trust Him to pay the price for our sin and bear the weight of it on His shoulders, we may lay down our shattered existence and embrace His own life in its place. Because all suffering is bound up with and redeemed by Christ, none of it is pointless.

“Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavily laden, and I will give you rest.

Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30

So, you didn’t bother to read the caveat, did you? So long as we have faith in him, that is. Can you make it happen? Do you have the confidence and ability to finish the task without interruptions? Is it possible for you to give God the keys to your life? Can you at least pray to Him to remove whatever is holding you back, whether it’s apprehension, suffering, or pride?
