A Faith That Survives Deconstruction

A lot of people are talking about “deconversion” and “deconstruction” of Christian faith. As Christians wrestle with doubts, our changing world, the rise of spiritual “nones,” and watch other people sometimes walk away from the church of their youth, it can be a challenge for what Christians should think.

Gavin Ortlund shares his own “deconstruction,” how his faith faced various challenges. However, unlike a lot of people today, Gavin’s faith not only survived, it was strengthened.

Our prayer is that the following video is encouraging. Note: Gavin has perspectives that would not be exactly our way of teaching, and he shares some Biblical truths in ways we might not share them. Nevertheless, his testimony might be very useful for you!

Check out the rest of Gavin’s videos at Truth Unites. Have questions about these things? Ask Pastor Brian!
