Dating and marrying someone of a different race, plus why doubting your faith can strengthen it, and a listener is having problems living with an unbeliever.

Cultures colliding might mean complicated dating. On our panel this week, a woman discusses the challenges and joys of her interracial marriage (one of the joys: beautiful kids); an Asian American talks about growing up in a mostly white neighborhood; and a redheaded half-Cuban weighs in about dating guys who don’t look like her.
Guests: Ben Young,
“Doubt is like porn,” says pastor Ben Young. “Lots of people struggle with it, but no one wants to talk about it.” Ben, who calls himself a recovering “doubt-aholic,” tells his story of experiencing intense doubt about God. He argues that doubt isn’t the opposite of faith, but instead is like ice: It can slide you closer to or further away from God. We ask Ben what determines which way Christians slide as we talk about his book “Room for Doubt.“
Guests: Christina Chismar,
What if your home is a spiritual battleground? A listener has a roommate who’s not a Christian and is doing things that make our listener uncomfortable. Should she stay and try to be a good witness? Should she leave and find a roommate who shares her values? One of our licensed counselors weighs in.
