Ken Wytsma :: Is skepticism good or bad?

  • “We do begin to treat skepticism as almost a moral flaw,” says Ken Wytsma, Founder of The Justice Conference and President of Kilns College. “Skeptical questions surface conversations that I think are more real, and because they’re more real and authentic, [they] have a greater chance at really hitting people where they’re at.” Though some Christians and churches – and even denominations – tend to view skepticism as a black mark or moral failing, it can actually drive us to healthy conversations and help illuminate truth.

    Answering questions in a healthy way can help people to see around a church’s message and find the truth that they need to move forward in their faith. “Redux is really designed to allow people to ask the question, so that the conversation is starting where the question is at, rather than starting where the message is at.”
