As I stood in the shop queue one evening waiting to be served, I got talking to the woman behind me. She asked what my job was, and I told her I taught people about the Bible. At this point she looked at me as though I had just sprouted another head.
10 Questions about Christianity
When it comes to God and Christianity do you have questions? Nearly everyone does.
Here you will find ten questions asked about the Christian faith, and responses to each of them. There are three levels of answers: the return question (which helps get to the heart of the issue), a quick answer (which is about all the time usually spent discussing these questions) and more details (often with suggested sources if you want to go deeper on that issue).

God loves us (John 3:16) and created us to know Him personally (John 17:3). Our stubborn self will has caused each of us to have gone our own way and are separated from God. The Bible says that all of us are sinful (Rom. 3:23) and the penalty of sin is death – separation from God (Rom. 6:23). Left to our own, we are destined for an eternal existence apart from God, enduring His judgement for our sin (2 Thes. 1:9).

The big question is, “Are you ready to surrender to God, repent of your sin and trust Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour?
