  • Second-Guessing God’s Love. What hardship or suffering have you been through since becoming a Christian? Or maybe a more relevant question for you would focus on the present – “God, why is this happening to me now?” This isn’t just a debate among skeptics; this is a question for Christians. In hurt and hardship, we are prone to doubt God’s love for us. Join us this Sunday as Pastor Nate opens the book of Malachi, which begins by addressing the struggle of Second-Guessing God’s Love.
