Sample Theology Reflections Paper on The Faith Club

 

I think we all go through this doubt and self-introspection moment in our lives; wondering if our existence is just out of a random event, the Big Bang, or is there a higher power. The thought of the former makes feel as if we lack purpose in life. As if we were just born to exist then eventually die only to be forgotten. On the other hand, having faith that a higher being is in control of our lives gives us hope, a sense of fulfillment and a sense of purpose. But at times certain events in life bring doubt in our lives; example the Priscilla’s sister condition. At times we just want to believe in a higher power but we wonder how a higher power could let all these things happen. Priscilla wondered why God would let her sister suffer this much.

Personally I have had such moment and wonder why would God let me suffer this much after believing in Him, obeying his word why? It takes spiritual growth to really understand why things are the way they are. As Suzanne told Priscilla bad things happen so that we can appreciate the good ones in our life. If things were always orderly in our lives and things went our way maybe we even consider God, we would not worship Him or marvel at His greatness. Priscilla says that she had never discussed or talked about God with her family or her husband but through chaos in her life, her panic attacks, her sister’s suffering she wished to believe in a higher power and in God’s own way Suzanne was there. Suzanne is an inspiration to her. Therefore, was it not for these chaotic moments in Priscilla life she would never had needed God in her life or sort after Him.
