  • Six Questions
    • Douglas J. Hayward has identified what he calls the the six most common fundamental questions asked by people everywhere:
    1. Can I find help in confronting the problems of living?
    2. Can I find healing in times of sickness?
    3. Can I find protection from malevolent beings?
    4. How can I discharge my obligations to supernatural beings who may interact with me and my world?
    5. How can I find meaning in life and in particular meaning to pain and suffering?
    6. What is the source or origin of evil?
