man sitting in fence

It is not unusual for persons in their early twenties to defect from their early teaching. The reasons are many. Perhaps their exposure to unbelief “took” better than their exposure to belief. This is often the case, for the Bible says, “The heart of man is deceitful above all things.”

The human heart is as prepared by sin to accept unbelief as faith. Some person they regard highly has undoubtedly influenced their thinking; and for the time being they look on their early training as “bunk.” As someone has said, “A little learning may take a man away from God, but full understanding will bring him back.”

Some of the staunchest Christians I know are people who had periods in their life when they questioned the Bible, Christ, and God. But as they continued to examine the matter, there was overwhelming evidence that only “the fool hath said in his heart, There is no God.”

Share this answer with someone who may be questioning God.

Prayer for the day

I pray for all the questioning people today, Lord, remembering times in my own life when unbelief reigned.

    I am sixty four years old, and I believe that the Bible is the very word of God. Everything in the Bible has happen just like it said or is going to happen just like it says. Two week ago my Sunday school teacher said about the donkey of Balaam’s that it could not talk. If the word of God that is the Bible if it isn’t all true what do we base our gift of salvation on . Psalm 51:12 I am praying over my own life.

    Speaking of young adults…… if their foundation is solid and they encounter a season of doubt , they will return , to the great truth , that Jesus Christ is the sacrificial lamb of God.

    Praying this for my son, Noah, right now. I praise God that He will use all of Noah’s efforts to study science, search for falsehoods in many world religions, and time spent listening to atheists, to prepare him to be an excellent disciple and defender of Jesus. Thank you, Lord.
