JOURNEY TO ENDURING FAITH:  JOURNEY TO ENDURING FAITH From Questions and Doubt to Enduring Faith Journey to enduring faith:  Journey to enduring faith A Concept of Christian Growth from Doubt and Questions to Enduring Faith. The result of 40 years of simplifying Christianity for searching young people. JOURNEY TO ENDURING FAITH:  JOURNEY TO ENDURING FAITH COMPLICATING FACTORS: “Christianese” Words we use but do not understand: “Nurture”, Sanctified, “Incarnation”, “In Christ”, “Omniscience”, “Salvation”, “Resurrection of the Body”, “Hell”, “Heaven”, “Satan”. “Puzzle Pieces” —Topical explanations of Christian principles without a “road map” to “connect the dots”: Sin, Suffering, Compassion, Worship, Works, Faith, Forgiveness, Witness, Stewardship. JOURNEY TO ENDURING FAITH:  JOURNEY TO ENDURING FAITH I believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth. And in Jesus Christ His only Son our Lord: who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried; the third day He rose from the dead, He ascended into Heaven and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.
