Most Christians believe they are sinful at some level. How much so, and whether we really feel that, is a different matter. There are two main questions in today’s episode: Do you find it hard to believe you’re inherently sinful? Do you believe God has ever withdrawn himself from you in order to teach you who you are apart from him? These questions stem from the last few months of Ryan’s life, in which some of the best qualities he’s had (e.g., patience, gentleness, etc.) have sometimes disappeared completely—leaving him to wonder what God is up to. Have you ever gone through anything similar? How easy or hard is it to believe you’re sinful? Let us know.
