Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone. - Colossians 4.6.Last month I started a new series to explore how to participate in genuine conversations. My last question generated many thoughtful responses.
Situation: Here's an old chestnut - in an email exchange with a believing friend you've known for some time, she admits to doubts. "I struggle to believe that God would send many (most?) people to Hell for not believing in him. After all, apart from personal epiphanies, he chooses only to reveal himself in the form of a book which was written, collated and interpreted by fallible humans."
How might you respond with grace, seasoned with salt?
