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 with a heavy heart that I write this article reflecting on the kingdom of God. What should have been a family night of celebrating love and friendship turned out to be a night of mourning for the victims of the horrific Florida school shooting last week.

I was under the impression, from archeological evidence, that it was at least a century later when the Gospels were written. I’d be interested in the evidence which points to their writing within 20-30 years after the events.

Sincerely,

Theophilus

Proverbs 27:19 states that as in the water the face reflects the face, so the heart of man reflects the man. James 4:1 asks what causes the quarrels and fights among you? Is it not this that your passions are at war within you? At a recent National Pickle ball Tournament God revealed my true character and inner heart.

In a recent conversation with a friend, I was given a car wash coupon. The coupon stated, “good for the redemption of one super deluxe wash at —“. Being a hose and bucket guy in my driveway, I was anxious to use this. This was the hand wash and dry with wax, sun screen and other stuff I did not know my car needed. This simple piece of paper was going to transform my car inside and out. At the bottom of my coupon was a small signature of the owner. It was not the coupon, but the signature of the man that would be paying for my carwash that made all the difference.

Worldviews come to us through stories. We do not form our most basic beliefs and assumptions about the nature of the world through a set of propositions. Neither do we come to these most basic convictions through a comprehensive analysis of all the evidence. Our lives are storied. From our earliest days, we are told stories and these shape our view of the world. Our parents may have read us the “The Little Engine that Could” to reinforce the principle that we can do anything if we believe it but our exploits on the Little League field may have more persuasively confirmed or denied that principle in our minds.

In the midst of my busy life, I sometimes wonder whether I need to be a member at a church in order to be spiritually healthy.  I have Christian friends and am part of a Christian university.  I can listen to sermons online and get worship songs to sing on the way to work.  Why would I need to worry about being a member of a local church in order to serve God and grow spiritually? 

Sincerely, Theophilus

Can you be a missionary in a place that has no apparent physical needs? In 1998, I was on a seminary mission trip to a Central American nation and worked with a translator. He told me that he wanted to be a missionary and that he was going to an island nation in the Caribbean. He said that the island was the only place open to him because it was the only place in the world poorer than his own country. When I asked if he had ever considered Uruguay or Costa Rica, he said that it would be impossible to be a missionary in either of those countries because they had the best economies in Latin America.

If God created us, then who created God?

Sincerely,

Theophilus

Dear Theophilus,

The question of who created God is usually brought up in philosophical discussions. It is a major objection that atheists place to justify their disbelief. It is also usually brought up in the question of the origins of the universe.
