It’s easy to think that Christianity is about being certain. It’s easy to let a little piece of doubt keep us from taking the leap of faith. But doubt is a part of human life, uncertainty is a part of deep faith, and God is comfortable with our questions. We are free to cry out, “I believe; help my unbelief!”

If the Christian story begins with a premise and a problem, it ends with a promise that we are still living into: a story about how all of creation could be a beautiful and loving place. It is a story about how we can leave the inhumanity of a broken existence and really actually be human.

The story of God-as-one-of-us is a story about redemption, or salvation, or liberation; it’s a story about how we are freed from the brokenness of the world and empowered to live in the world as it should be. It is a story about how love becoming human helps humanity become more loving.

The thing that makes Christians unique is that we believe that God became one of us: a real, actual, historical human being, born among a dispossessed people in an occupied land, who was executed through the machinations of a powerful empire. We believe that person is the clearest image of the one who creates, sustains, and redeems the world because they love the world.

The Christian story starts with a premise and a problem. The premise is that the world is created and sustained by a God who is love. The problem is that the world does not reflect that love. The Christian word for that brokenness—that distance between the way that the world is and the way that the world ought to be—is sin.

It’s easy to imagine God as an angry man who lives in the sky, makes a bunch of arbitrary rules, and then punishes people like you and me for breaking them. And that is a God who a lot of people preach, and who a lot of people believe in, and who a lot of people fear, and who a lot of people reject. But it is not a God who I recognize; because the God who I know—who I find in scripture and tradition—is love.

We all tell stories. We tell stories about ourselves and about others. We tell stories about the way that the world is and the way that it could be; and—probably more than we’d like to admit—those stories make up our reality. In this series, I talk about the stories that we tell, the stories that other people tell for us, and how we might start telling a better story.
