If your parents are separated or divorced, you may have a lot of spiritual questions about God and faith and the church. Many times when parents get divorced, kids begin to wonder about why they even exist and sometimes that leads to tough questions about God and faith. Here at I Am A Child of Divorce, we want to help you as you search through and struggle with many of those questions. So, we have created a section for “Questions About Spiritual Stuff” that will address these question.
We recognize that discussions about God can be very polarizing and controversial, but the fact of the matter is that God can help you heal after your parents divorce and provide hope. To ignore that may avoid some controversy, but it would not be fair to you (as someone whose parents divorced) to ignore the issue all together.
Our goal in tackling spiritual issues is to be as honest and as forthright as we know how to be. If you don’t feel like these particular questions or issues apply to you, please just ignore them and continue to utilize the rest of I Am A Child of Divorce to help yourself in whatever way possible. However, if you do have questions about God and Faith, we hope that these answers will help you to sort through those issues.
Even if you do not believe in God, or feel like you don’t need faith, I would encourage you to at least read through these questions and answers. While the principal issues addressed are indeed about God and Faith, they also deal with the broader issues of meaning and existence. Regardless of what you believe, these are issues that we all have to face and divorce sometimes forces us to face them earlier than we would like.
So, stay tuned to this section as we intend to tackle questions like:
- Where was God when my parents got divorced?
- What does the Bible say about divorce?
- What good does it do to pray to God about divorce?
- How can the church help me to deal with my parents’ divorce?
- Why am I even here if my parents are divorced?
We will tackle these questions and many more in this section of “Questions About Spiritual Stuff.”
