What you believe (or don’t believe) about God says a lot about the quality and direction of your life.
It also has some pretty outstanding eternal consequences.
My main preoccupation here as I interview Dr. Vance Gardner-Doctor of surgery, clinical studies and of course, Theology-is to get at the question of why people have left the church.
But I start from one major premise and that is this:
Every human being on this planet is born with a sense of the divine. This sense is instilled form within (our biological DNA) and without (the natural world around us).
So from this position, the question becomes really interesting: why don’t you believe in the God of the Bible or his local Church?
Here is the link to the show:
Are you suppressing the innate knowledge of God within and around you?
Why or why not?
Because you find the Bible offensive?
Because you find the example of so-called Christians detestable?
Or maybe because you have been personally hurt by the Church or someone who bears the name of Jesus…
As you can see this topic is transcendent as well as deeply personal!
