Ever had a question about God that you were scared to ask?

Ever felt like your hard questions get squashed, silenced, or brushed aside?

We get that. We wrote this guide for people like you. And we have good news.

First, other teenagers and adults ask these kinds of questions all the time. Second, it’s not only okay to ask hard questions, but it’s actually important–some say essential–for your faith journey. And finally, God can handle it. God isn’t anxious about your questions, struggles, or doubt. We don’t think you should be either. Even if some adults around you aren’t sure what to do with those questions.

If you’re tired of vague, superficial, or nonexistent answers to your tough questions about God, the Bible, and Christianity, this series is for you. Designed for use in small groups alongside the Can I Ask That Volume 2 Leader Guide, these six sessions tackle the following tough questions:

·       Is it wrong to doubt God?
·       Is hell real? How could God send someone there?
·       Can I do something so bad God won’t forgive me?
·       Why do bad things happen to good people?
·       Is sex outside marriage wrong?
·       Why is it so awkward to talk about Jesus with my friends?

Whether you’ve never asked these questions before or you’ve been aching for the chance, this guide is meant to be a starting point for each conversation.
Ready? Go ahead. You can ask that.
