Questioning God

Karen read several questions from a book during her sermon on Sunday that I found delightful. The book is titled Children’s Letters To God and here are a few of my favorites:

Dear God, I read the Bible. What does begat mean? Nobody will tell me.

Dear God, is it true my father won’t get into Heaven if he uses his bowling words in the house?

Did you mean for the giraffe to look like that or was it an accident?

Dear God, I went to this wedding and they kissed right in church. Is that OK?

God, it’s OK that you made different religions but don’t you get mixed up sometimes?

How come you did all those miracles in the old days and don’t do any now?

Instead of letting people die and having to make new ones, why don’t you just keep the ones you have now?

Her sermon was about how it’s acceptable to ask God difficult questions because He has nothing to defend, and gave several examples of such questions in the Bible by everyone from Abraham to Jesus.

  1. This makes perfect sense to me. If people think you should not question God then they must think he might not have the answer. And of course, that makes their faith questionable. Just ask and it is given (answered) is a phrase that comes to mind.

  2. Well, I think it is okay to “question God”. I do believe the Bible has MANY examples of this.
    I think we get into trouble when we BLAME God for whatever we have in our life that we don’t like.
    I rarely hear anyone BLAME the devil.
