Last week, I announced a new writing project I’m working on, and I solicited responses from you to three questions about life, faith, and church.
The responses were phenomenal. Just what I was looking for. You did not let me down.
I even got a couple of emails and Facebook chats from people who were disappointed that the questions didn’t apply to them! Sorry about that. But I have about a dozen questions stacked up, and we’ll do this today and probably a couple times more in the coming weeks, so hopefully at least one question will apply to you. If you missed the first three questions, you can take a look at them here.
Since you did so well, I’ll pose another three questions to you. Answer one or all of them if you wish, as honestly as you feel comfortable with.
Here we go:
Question 1: How much sex education did you recieve from school, your parents, or your church? Where did most of the information come from? Did your church or parents make an argument for abstinence, besides the risk of pregnancy and STDs, that was compelling enough to at least seriously attempt to keep your virginity? (You don’t have to answer if you were successful…unless you want to.)
Question 2: If you went to Sunday school or youth group, what made those leaders qualified for their jobs, if anything? Were they educated, trained, lay leaders, young, old, youthful personalities, or mature and wise? Were they more or less qualified to work with children than your schoolteachers? How much of the Bible did you learn from Sunday school or youth group?
Question 3: Do you think Christians are defensive or hostile toward opposing points of view? If so, why do you think this is?
