The SIX questions we all ask
What is the Gospel?
What is the “Gospel” and what practical implications does the Gospel make in my everyday life? For many it’s heaven to gain and a hell to shun – only applying to our afterlife.
What is sin?
What is “sin” and what is so terrible about it? And what is my motivation to not sin?Especially since our favorite sins like sex, porn, gossiping, selfishness, drunkenness, etc. are things we actually really enjoy.
Why did God create me?
What is God’s end goal for this world, all humans of this world, and me personally? Where is He taking it and what does it look like for me to be a part of that goal?
How can I change?
How can I, as a Christian who fully believes the Gospel, be compelled to genuinely desire God and His kingdom enough to become a true disciple – willing to consider all things loss in comparison?
What are God's thoughts of me?
As a Christian, at the end of a long day (when I have done what I ought not to have done – and not done what I ought to have done) what are God’s thoughts of me when I lay down my head at at night and fall asleep?
What is my mission?
What is God’s mission given to us and how do I fulfill it without it becoming a
feeling of another thing I have to do for God? And based upon that, What is needed at the personal, and church level to shape culture and to be on strategic mission?
The Laymen’s Lounge is a resource for everyday Christians (those who make up the majority of the Church) to learn how to do everyday life with other everyday theologians. Theology is for laymen too: all people of faith need to seek understanding of how work and play, at home, the office, the garden, or anywhere else, relates to the God of the gospel and the gospel of God.
Theology is about paying attention to God’s presence and activity in all areas of life. Here in the Lounge you will find help in answering key questions, such as “What is the gospel?” and “Why did God create me?” We will bring scholars, professors, pastors, and missionaries into the lounge to help us wrestle with questions and issues that are part and parcel of daily living.
This site is for anyone who wants to think harder about the Christian faith and how to live as Christians. Please feel free to stay as long as you like, and encourage others – friends, family, and even grandma (if she knows how to log on to the internet) – to visit. If they do, they’ll find everyday theology for everyday Christians living everyday life.
