Love and Justice
Anonymous asked: Thank you for serving the Lord this way ^_^ My roommate and I recently had a disagreement. While we both agree that Christians are called to rebuke, we disagree on the motivation to seek the Lord. For me, after a hard semester, it’s because we love him and as we learn to love his holiness, we see the sin that clings so deeply to us and we learn to hate it as well. For her,...

What Does It Mean to "Listen to God"?
Anonymous asked: What does it mean to listen to God? Do you pray and then just sit still and listen for His voice? Or does God just let you pray and then, when you’re off doing something else, answer you with a whisper or a person’s words or a sign? How does that work? I answered: I think this is a great question. It is important to take the Christian-isms we hear all the time,...

How Should I Treat People of Other Faiths?
unbwriting315 asked: This question has been on my mind for awhile. How as a Christian do I accept people from other faiths? I’ve never really had a problem with other religions, and I don’t think they’re wrong. I answered: It is certainly an important question, and one that there is a lot of noise around. Let’s start here: I do think that they are wrong. That does not mean...
Other Christians at School Are Driving Me Nuts
jeremyyap asked: I go to a Christian school in the Chicago area and this past month I’ve felt this distaste for some of the people on campus as far as the way that they let there faith be known. Posting things 24/7 about how God is changing their lives and how we need to convict non believers on campus. I feel like they’re vying for attention from other Christians and it bugs me. And...

Witnessing to Your Family
jkhayz asked: I’m the only Christian in my family and I really want to witness to them, but they make it really hard. My mom enjoys pulling me into drama that has nothing to do with me, and turns every conversation to be about her. I remain calm, but it’s like she’s trying to pull an argument out of me and reacts irrationally, making me feel like a bad kid, which I’m...

Peace versus Comfort
Anonymous asked: How do you know what God’s will is for your life? People tell me peace is a sign. But from experience I feel like God calls us to step out of our comfort zone. I answered: I think you make a very shrewd, and accurate, observation that peace and comfort are different things. So the question is, what’s the difference? Well I think comfort is tangible. In whatever arena,...

The power of "I don't know"
onelasttoday asked: So, I know, as Christians, we should be open minded and caring to others feelings and beliefs. What do we do when friends ask about existence of aliens and things like that? I answered: There is great power in the phrase “I don’t know”. You are not under any obligation to know everything about everything. The important thing is to know what you believe, and even within...
