What did you learn about people from the looking at the top 7? Why not 10 or 5?
7 just seemed like a particularly godly number 🙂 A few things stuck out to me: people have questions about the Bible for which there are clear answers, but those answers are not being given to them, so they turn to the internet. It’s important that good and correct answers be readily available and easily found in the internet.
The other thing is that many people are sad and yet long for hope. No one wants to see anyone give in to hopelessness and commit suicide, even if they don’t know them personally. That says something about out humanity and that we are hardwired for hope, and that we view death as something very unnatural (which the Bible says it is too).
Are we all hardwired for hope? If so, then why does someone like me feel mostly hopeless? Can people be Christians and feel so hopeless?
The fact that you are hardwired for hope is the reason why you WANT to have hope, even when you struggle with feeling hopeless.
