Sometimes finding truth isn't about getting the right answers, but more of trying to figure out the right question.
Recently I asked a group of youth, along with their leaders, to share some of their questions. To get them started I suggested 3 categories - here's the first one:
Ask a question that you think cannot be answered:
- Where did God come from? (And many, many like it)
- When is God coming back? (and many like it)
- What is the mass of the universe?
- Do we need to pray with our eyes open? Or when did this begin?
- What is the exact date of Jesus' return?
- Why does God allow little children to die?What does God look like?
- Why did the Lord create Lucifer?
- How did God begin?
- What is love?
- When are you going to die?
- Are we the first world to be created?
- Why do prayers not get answered the way we would like?
- What does God look like?
- Will I get to see my pet in heaven?
- Why was their sin?
- How many angels are there?
- How many of us here today will be saved?
- Why did God make this world?
- If God has no beginning, what took him so long to start creating?
- Why do I have fear when I know God loves me?
Now, some of these I actually would have a crack at answering. But that is not the point. These are questions people shared when asked what could not be answered. And this is how they feel.
The question is part of the process of knowing, of learning, of growing.
Never be afraid to ask a question.
