Tough Questions Are Fun

Even those who’ve attended church for decades are afraid of being asked questions they can’t answer. But no one expects you to have all the answers. You’re not a Pastor and you’re not a Bible Scholar. So all pressure on this point is self-imposed. Jesus said they’ll know you’re His disciple by your love — not your Bible knowledge.

Having said that, people are searching for answers to their questions and God has answers for every one of them. Your goal is to connect their questions to His Answers and that’s where the fun begins.

It’s so easy! When you don’t have an answer to a question, simply tell the person you don’t have the answer, but God does. And then ask their permission to pray for them over the next few days as you search the scriptures for the answer. They’ll never say no.

Set a time for your next meeting and then watch your Prayer Life and Bible Study explode over those next few days. With the pressure on you to connect the right scriptures with the question being asked, your Bible Study and Prayers will ignite with razor-sharp focus and purpose. It will change everything! And God will always provide the answer you’re looking for. Always!

When your cry is for knowledge and you seeketh her as silver and searchest for her as for hidden treasure, then shalt thou understand and find the knowledge of God…for the Lord giveth wisdom Proverbs 2:4-6. Here’s the best part: Sharing God’s inspired answers to questions being asked by seekers is guaranteed to put a bounce in your step. And through the process, your own understanding of God increases. It’s a Double Blessing!

It’s About Free Choice

The most prevalent questions like — Why would a Holy God send good people to Hell? or Why would a Good God allow bad things to happen? — all relate to the basic clash between good and evil which predates Adam and Eve. Having Free Choice to choose between good and evil has always been the defining element of God’s Master Plan!

In order for us to have Free Choice, both options have to be on the table. Both have to be readily available and equally attractive for vastly different reasons. In His Infinite Wisdom, God allows each of us to choose between living to satisfy our own desires, following Satan’s lead into depravity or Honoring Him in everything we do. It’s our Free Choice!

Without Free Choice, we’d be relegated to a robotic existence preprogrammed to say, I love you God, on command. There would be no “us” as individuals and no way for us to grow into a personal relationship with our Creator. A loving relationship is unattainable unless it’s optional for both parties.

He could have created an antiseptic world, free from everything bad and harmful…or painful or sad or stressful or anxious or horrifying. Or He could give us Free Choice — allowing us to choose between doing bad or good — depending on ourselves and suffering the consequences, or depending on Him and enjoying His Blessings. Even with all the misery man has brought on himself by making bad decisions, thank God for Free Choice! No one wants to be a robot!

God is Omnipresent with His Holy Spirit continually revealing and attempting to draw you closer to Jesus and empower you to tell others about Him. This is in stark contrast to the forces of evil that are forcefully at work in our world today. All of us are in the middle of this dynamic.

Who Rules Our World?

To accomplish His Goals, God made Satan the “ruler of this world” within specific guidelines. Fortunately he can only deceive unbelievers. In II Corinthians 4:4 we’re told that Satan, who is the God of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. With God’s Permission, Satan blinds the minds of unbelievers so they cannot discern false philosophies that become like fortresses in which they are imprisoned.

Looking through God’s eyes, this is America today. As a post-Christian society, most Americans are imprisoned by depraved, satanic-inspired philosophies that are beyond the comprehension of those of us who live in the light. Nothing else explains the laws being passed, the anger being expressed and the rationale being given for all things contrary to God…by otherwise good and well-educated people who are defenseless against Satan’s power to use them as pawns for his purposes.

Without exaggeration, and clearly described by Scripture, Satan has become the prevailing authority in America. He’s taken control of America and it’s time to take our country back! But make no mistake about it: The future of America will never be decided by man’s wisdom or politics, but by it’s choice for who is God. This is Epic Spiritual Warfare that can only be fought and won by the Sword of the Spirit (The Word of God) living and working through His Church (Every one of us) moving everyone, every day, closer to Jesus for His Glory… Igniting America with Revival.

Matthew 10:33 tells us whoever denies me before man, I will deny before my Father in Heaven. If you’re a follower of Jesus Christ, this is the time for you to stand up and be counted and recognize our enemy for who he is. By our silence, we’ve allowed him to wreak havoc on America. Ephesians 6:12 explains it well: We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. We’ve allowed Satan to have his way with America long enough!
