“God Friended Me” viewing – Pastor’s Small Group

“God Friended Me” is a clever concept for a TV show. A Facebook profile entitled “God” friends a devout atheist and starts using him in people’s lives to help them. By the end of the first episode, this devout atheist admits that there might be a God…
 
God does come into our lives when we really aren’t looking for him. He uses us according to his good will, but it’s not through a Facebook page or even anything necessarily that obvious. Many times he uses the pain and failure of the world to remind us that there is something seriously wrong in our lives. We need to find a serious solution. The thing is he gives us that solution, and it comes to us in his Word. He tells us his purpose for us and how he will use us,. It’s an incredibly freeing thing to discover.
 
These are two discussions that came after watching the first episode
  1. How can you be “spiritual” but “not religious?”
  2. Is atheism a rational thing?
