Title: Why I Am A Christian
Series: Special Guest
Author: Alycia Wood
Rockpointe friend and guest speaker Alycia Wood offers a very personal explanation for why she is a Christian, chronicling her crisis of faith in college and how it resolved into a deeper and more nuanced faith in Christ. A significant turning point in that crisis came as a result of studying the book of Job in the Bible.
When Christianity talks about hope, it talks about it in a way that is much more certain than the way we throw the term around in casual conversation. The Bible teaches us through episodes like the account of Job’s life that even in the midst of pain, even in the midst of great anguish, there will always be hope. We can count on this even when all else seems ruined and without the slightest chance of redemption!
