A Couple Tough Questions

A brief Q&A with a Christian minister. A special thanks to Andrew Pratt for passing along this information.

Q: Why do a lot of very smart people (PhD’s, etc) often reject God? Why does there have to be scientific evidence to every question? The answer for me is faith, which isn’t accepted by these folks that always want “tangible” evidence.

A: Just as Jesus said that people with great riches will have trouble getting into heaven, so also will people with great intellects. Jesus said,

“Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become
As little children, you will be no means enter the kingdom of
Heaven. Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child
is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.” Matt. 18:3-4

Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 1:22-23:

“…Jews request a sign and Greeks seek after wisdom; be we
Preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to
to Greeks foolishness.”

Note: Two books that would be helpful in answering some of these and related questions would be:

Case for Christ by Lee Stroebel and
Letters from A Skeptic by Greg Boyd

I haven't read either of these books, but plan to in the near future!
