“Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens…”
Have you ever heard a pastor tell a story found in the Bible that made you very uncomfortable?… where some part of the story made you question the moral character of the so-called “hero” of the story… or maybe even the character of God himself? You wanted to speak out and voice your questions/concerns, but you didn’t feel it was safe. You feared being judged by others as a “doubting Thomas” lacking faith. This month’s Life, God, and the Universe blog is the first of a number of blogs discussing taboo Bible topics. In this month’s blog entitled Taboo Bible Topics – The Story of Elijah, we explore the story of the hero Elijah and some of his controversial actions.
