Faith and Doubt

Jan 02 2011 • Greg Boyd

Faith is sometimes understood as the lack of doubt. Doubt can be seen as the enemy of faith; however, doubt is not always the enemy. God wants His people to wrestle with Him on the things that happen in their life. We must not be afraid of struggling with deep questions.

Sermons in this series:


Trusting a Killer God?

• Greg Boyd

The Genesis passage of God asking Abraham to sacrifice his beloved son, Isaac, raises questions about trusting in God. In this sermon, Greg honestly probes some of those questions about the passage. He also provides some thoughts on how we can replicate Abraham’s faith.

Topics: Faith, God's Will, Sacrifice


Growing Our Faith

• Seth McCoy

Sometimes in life, Faith is an intellectual issue. However, sometimes faith comes after following Jesus. In this sermon, Seth talks to us about examples of people following Jesus and then having faith. He also talks about what it looks like for our faith to grow.

Topics: Community, Faith, Fear


Trusting In God Knows What

• Greg Boyd

When we lock our doors or buy insurance, are we trusting in God? In this sermon, Greg talks about what it looks like to trust God in a broken world. He also talks about what protection looks like when following Jesus. Greg also tries telling a joke. We apologize for that.

Topics: Blessings, Faith, God's Will


Integrated Faith

• Greg Boyd

Our fallen world is full of dis-integration. This week, Greg takes the past topics of faith and applies them to this fallen world. In doing so, we are giving a way of integrating our faith in any situation.

Topics: Faith, Imagination, Prayer


Imagine

• Greg Boyd

How does a person keep their faith when facing an unfixable situation? In this sermon, Greg speaks to the question by examining his family’s own struggle with having an adult son with autism. Knowing that he can’t fix the problem, Greg describes how his vision of the solution provides a solid foundation for faith.

Topics: Faith, Hope, Pain & Suffering


Losing the Faith Game

• Greg Boyd

Faith is often understood in measurement terms. Some say people need amounts of faith to receive benefits from God. Faith, however, should be understood in relational terms and not “faithometer” terms. The illustration of a marriage best serves the idea of how faith in God works.

Topics: Covenant, Faith, Marriage


The Faith to Doubt

• Greg Boyd

Faith is sometimes understood as the lack of doubt. Doubt can be seen as the enemy of faith; however, doubt is not always the enemy. When wrestling with God, it is important not to doubt God’s character. We will always have doubt about questions on a broad range because we are human and finite, but God’s character need never be doubted.

Topics: Blessings, Faith, Prayer


The Wrestlers

• Greg Boyd

God wants His people to wrestle with Him on the things that happen in their life. He wants His people to ask “Who are you, God?” Following the story of Jacob, we are called as Christ followers to struggle, strive, and seek to know who God is. We must also not be afraid of struggling with deep questions.

Topics: Conflict, Faith, Prayer
