Well, what would you say? We have all been asked questions challenging the core of our Christianity and our spiritual leadership.
Do you believe you are the only ones going to heaven?
Why don’t you have a piano?
Why do I have to be immersed in water to be saved?
My grandmother was one of the best people I have ever known. Do you think she went to heaven?
Obviously, these are only a few of the questions people have and continue to ask. Not to complicate the list, but what would you say?
We can easily find ourselves seeking a way to avoid answering directly. We become ambiguous or elusive in our answers.
Leaders will face times when they must answer tough questions. What we often fail to remember is the importance of not only what we say, but how we say it.
Based on my limited experience, it is one thing to watch others face challenges and give advice. However, it is another to face those same challenges, personally.
Opinions are plentiful and quite common. Truth and the manner in which truth is spoken is needed. What would you say?
