Dig Deeper

For Christians: After working through all of the response questions, setup a chat with a friend who is not a believer asking them if you can attempt to explain some less popular concepts from the Christian faith and get some feedback from them. Then, do your best to explain why self-centered living is spiritual lostness, why it's good that God has wrath and what it means to fear the Lord. Pray in advance!

For not-currently-Christians: Write down your questions, concerns and even frustrations about these concepts and challenge your believing friend (probably the one who showed you this module) to respond to your feedback.

If you want to dig a bit more into some of this, take a look at these options.
