Quoting you, “The best defense is to know what you believe and why, and be able to articulate it when confronted with these attacks.” While I don’t believe I’m all that articulate, I do know what I believe but I don’t know the answer to “why” I believe – I just believe. What is the answer?
I was taught that God controls the orbit of our lives once we give our lives to Him. But I was also taught that we handed the world over to Satan in the garden. My question to you is this: I have been hit with a lot in my life, and all I can come up with is, I am still standing. If God is not doling out these trials, an accident here, a disease there, but it’s the devil is doing this, as you say, how does our faith impact God’s restraint of him?
I have a friend who believes that he has a calling from God to do Gospel music, and has received confirmation from different people and pastors that he will one day stand on a stage with his band and sing to huge crowds. He believes he’s being held back from this because he can’t stop sinning. Therefore he is waiting for God to make him stop sinning and after that he’ll be able to follow his dream. What do you think?
