About
Living Faith is a Christian blog that interacts with a variety of biblical, theological and practical topics written by Grand Canyon University's College of Theology faculty and specially invited guests of the college. Our content provides practical and biblical advice from a Christian worldview for living our faith in the midst of an increasingly secularized world. In addition, our content wrestles with cultural topics and issues that challenge how we live out our faith as believers. For this reason, contributors to our Christian blog strive to write with compassion and apologetic concern to honor Christ and edify the church in every way possible.

It’s happened again. I’ve lost my temper, made a selfish choice that hurt someone else and let my eyes linger over something that brings corruption to the mind and the heart. When these things take place, does God give second chances?

Sincerely,

Theophilus

Does God continue to love and forgive us when we constantly let Him down and always say that we are going to do better?

Sincerely,
Theophilus     

Concerning these things my dear Theophilus,

To answer this important question, we need to step back and ask why God loves at all. In these modern times, the concept of love has taken on definitions and meanings that greatly disguise what true love is.

In this episode of Trending Faith, University Pastor Dr. Tim Griffin and College of Theology Dean Dr. Jason Hiles take on the question, “How can I apply the Bible to my life?”

As Dr. Hiles begins this discussion, he says that before you can apply the Bible to your life, you first need to truly make sense of what it is saying. This leads into another question that many of us face: Can we really be sure of what the Bible is saying or what any of it means?

In Christianity, many people appear to be very certain in their beliefs. They are assured or certain their beliefs are true. How is it that I believe, but still manage to have doubts? 

Sincerely,
Theophilus

Imagine a world in which everyone lives and loves as Jesus did. It would be absolutely incredible to inhabit a world in which people truly loved and cared for one another.

Unfortunately, that is simply not true of the world we live in. Much like people in our day, the crowds Jesus taught were fascinated by his ideas but few were moved to action by his teaching. Fewer still were willing to commit to his way of life. This came as no surprise to Christ because he knows what is in the human heart (John 2:25). Indeed, Jesus often concluded his teaching with an intriguing phrase that bears close examination: “He who has ears to hear, let him hear.”

As pastors, leaders and teachers, one of our main day-to-day activities within the church involves responding to questions from new and recent believers. After all, it’s quite natural for someone who recently converted to Christianity to have questions about their newfound faith. Often the questions relate to how one should live out his or her faith in light of how the Christian worldview informs and directs our actions and decisions within society. In New Testament times, church leaders wrote letters and books to help answer questions believers had about their faith.

For many of us, especially if committed to serving well in God’s kingdom work, potential or actual obsession with our station (i.e. occupational position) is a constant temptation. Cornelius Plantinga encourages controlling our work parameters wisely: “No matter what our primary occupation, we can’t let it become a preoccupation” (2002, 139). Our personal and communal lives ought to substantially exceed workplace limitations. Vocation is much broader than work, although the former includes the latter.

I was recently asked a question about the possibility of a second chance after one has died. The question was along these lines: What happens to souls that pass before they can attempt to make it right with Jesus? Do they have an opportunity to respond to Jesus Christ after they die but before the day of judgement?
