Overcoming Barriers to Faith

"However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?" (Luke 18:8)



While resistance to following Christ in my experience is often more a matter of the heart and will than of the mind, reflection on some common questions may be helpful to some:

(Sometimes when discussing such questions with friends who seem to enjoy engaging in debate for it's own sake I ask: "If you had a satisfactory answer to the question we are discussing, would it make a difference in your decision of whether or not to follow Christ?" If the answer is "no" then the discussion could go a long ways with that person being no closer to encountering Christ. If the answer is "yes" then I will do all I can to remove the barrier.)
