If not church then where?

The past few weeks at faithpoint have lead to some really great conversations. A number of people have come to me saying that it is great that we are able to have the conversation and ask any question.  I can’t help but think about how we are to work out our faith.  If church isn’t the place to ask any question without fear where can we? Are we just to assume that those who come after us will just ride the coattails of what we believe? How is that a solid faith.
If we can’t have conversations about living out a real in church then where do we expect the conversations to happen?
