Questions You’re Afraid To Ask Out Loud

He’s a pastor, author, and apologist. And he still has doubts about the tough questions of faith. But he’s learned how to leverage doubt to propel him forward and not cause him to spiral backward.

JD Greear, pastor of The Summit Church in NC joins us to talk about his new book, 12 Truths and a Lie: Answers to Life’s Biggest Questions. JD takes on some of the toughest questions he’s fielded over the years and that he’s also wrestled with

In the podcast, JD shares how he wrestled with doubts about his salvation, how to unhinge politics from the gospel. We also take on other tough questions: If God’s really in control, why so much suffering? How could a loving God send people to hell?

And surely the biblical sexual ethic is bigoted. Or is it? Listen in to a conversation between Perry and JD that gives you permission to doubt and insight on how to grow through it. If this encourages you, please share!

Shawna Beyer

Shawna Beyer has a way of telling stories that create personal connection— to her, to one another, and to God. She has been a homeschool mom, church planter, project lead for a consulting company, and church staff member. Though she’s been involved in ministry with her husband (Dan) in Iowa, Arizona, and now Michigan, she was born and raised in Southern California and as they say, “You can take the girl out of California . . .” She is mom to four grown kids (Bryn, Drayson, Eden, and Haven) who no longer need her but humor her anyway. Shawna is passionate about the rhythms we weave into the fabric of our lives to fall more in love with God each day. Healthy foods are her go-to, but she will abandon that whole track in a heartbeat for a homemade cinnamon roll like Grandma used to make.
