In Habakkuk 1:1-17, the writer asks questions about unanswered prayer and the problem of evil that plague many of us today. Join the Groundwork discussion as we study how his ancient questions help us navigate today’s world.
Have you ever wanted to ask God questions like: are You listening to me? God, why don’t You answer me? God, why did You do that? Why don’t You fix this? In the biblical book of Habakkuk, the prophet asks God these questions and in his discourse we find answers to our questions about how evil can exist if we have a just God, how we should respond to unanswered prayers, and where we can find continued hope.
Christians refer to the Bible as the Word of God. It's the book that informs our faith. Yet many still wonder, is the Bible true? Is it a historical book? Is it accurate to say there are no errors in it or that it is 100% true? In this Groundwork series we discuss the trustworthiness of the Bible by studying what Jesus says about scripture, what the Bible says about itself, and the impact this has on our faith.
We all want, maybe even need, to believe in something. With a variety of religious teachings in existence today, it's natural to turn to a trusted teacher for confirmation on whether something you're hearing is solid, dependable, and trustworthy. That's the assurance the Apostle Paul gives to Timothy and Titus, two pastors in training, when he writes "This is a trustworthy saying..." This Groundwork series studies the five statements Paul deems "worthy of full acceptance" and their impact on our understanding of the gospel message in our lives.
