After getting married or probably even before then you and your significant other will at some point discuss the topic of faith and where as a family you will stand. Even coming from a family that went to church every Sunday, I still have questions. It’s not that I question why I should have faith. I question what really is the truth and the only way to find that is to read it for myself. Everyone interprets the bible differently. Why do you think there are so many denominations? Recently I’ve decided to start reading the New Testament in a quest of finding answers to these hard questions that I’m really curious to find out for myself and where I stand on them. I will keep a series on this posted as I read through the books. I have listed my questions below and just a warning for everyone who thinks they want to give me all the answers and their opinions, “Please keep them to yourself, this is something I want to learn by reading it for myself.”
Here Are My Questions
- Can people really get filled with the holy spirit? (and by this I mean is it possible for someone to fall out on the floor while someone has their hands praying on them or are people just dropping on the floor because they see everyone else doing it?)
- Are demonic spirits something we should worry about in this day and age?
- What does God really expect from us as christians? (Are we really supposed to eat, breathe, and talk about Jesus all day, every day?)
- How should I pray?
- Is speaking in tongues in this day and age?
- What should I look for when trying to find a pastor?
- Does it say anywhere in the bible that you HAVE to go to church or is private worship, prayer, and reading your bible the same as keeping the sabbath day holy?
Remember I warned you that these were hard but honest questions that people are afraid to ask.
