ASKING THE WRONG QUESTION

Here are some fractured thoughts that I had while trying to reposition my thoughts to that of having in me the mind of Christ Jesus (Philippians 2:5).

Too many times, I find I ask questions that are either the opposite of what exists or that require wrong answers. Wrong questions only generate wrong answers. What follows are wrong questions.

This is one of my favorite clips for sayings. Wrong questions give wrong answers.

EXAMPLES

When someone says to me, “I don’t believe in God,” I sometimes respond by saying, “That is the wrong question to ask. What you should be asking is why a God with pure energy, pure knowledge, pure love, and pure service, would believe in you, being a puny and insignificant lifeform?”

Why does a good god allow Bambi in the forest to die at the hands of greedy hunters?

If god is so good why does He allow people to have cancer and suffer terribly?

Why does god allow people to rape, pillage, plunder, cut off heads, be priest pedophiles, and defraud the poor like some televangelists who preach a god that just lines their pockets?

A good god wouldn’t permit evil, or He wouldn’t be good, not so?

Why is the god of Scripture one who punishes those who don’t believe in him. Isn’t freedom supposed to be without constraints?

If god is so powerful, why can’t he stop those who hate him from doing so?

Why doesn’t god stop hurricanes or buildings from collapsing, or flash flooding, or other natural catastrophes?

What are some wrong questions in your life? Christ is the right answer but also the right question. I am the way, the truth, and the life. Either that is true or it is not. If it is true, do you act on it? If it is not, who cares?
