Message: “On Deconstructing Faith” from JR. Forasteros2021-04-202021-04-27https://jrforasteros.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/jrcc.jpgJR. Forasteroshttps://jrforasteros.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/jrcc.jpg200px200px
When we start to question foundational aspects of our faith, it feels scary. When others begin to question, we feel threatened. But "deconstruction," as this process has become known, is a vital part of a healthy, vibrant faith. It's a process that's not predictable and not quick. But Paul's nearly two decades between conversion and mission work offer a window into the good that comes when we trust that God is not only not threatened by questions, but working with us to have a deeper and stronger faith than ever.
Kanye and Jay-Z say there's no church in the wild. It's easy to see why: how often look to church as a place of safety and security - a place to find protection from the world? But the Holy Spirit drove the earliest Christians to live a bold, powerful faith. They knew that Jesus isn't behind safe walls. Jesus is at work, bring justice and peace everywhere. The question is: will we join him... in the wild?
