This is a WordPress repost of an excellent article authored by Clay Jones D.Min. Associate Professor of Christian Apologetics at Biola University. Misconceptions about Christian expectations can and do cause some to reject Christianity and Clay’s post deals with these expectations in a honest and revealing manner. Highly recommended, especially for those new to the faith.
Although there are other reasons, the major reason Christians doubt God’s love or even the truth of Christianity is that they expect God to act in ways other than He promised to act. I write this now because recently I have conversed with Christians who are struggling with this. Obviously, if a Christian thinks the Lord should do this or that, but then the Lord doesn’t do this or that, then that Christian is going to lack confidence in God’s love or existence.
