Today’s question is one directly from Jesus immediately after He rebuked the wind and calmed the sea. Before asking it, He removed the disciples’ anxiety. Then Jesus asked them,
“Why are ye so fearful? How is it that ye have not faith?”
What answer comes to your mind as to what stands in the way of someone having faith in God?
- Disappointment with God?
- Evil in the world?
- The philosophies of the world?
- The number of religions claiming truth?
- Lack of knowledge?
- Abundance of knowledge?
- Lack of understanding?
- A hard heart?
Which of the above would you rank highest in being a stumbling block to faith in God to the unbelieving and to the Christian? Maybe, you have another that is not listed. Thank you, for sharing your thoughts. For they will help me in some research for a book I’m currently working on.
May your faith be ever increasing.
