    If you could ask God one sincere question, what would you ask?

    That would be my question, too :D (More exactly questions raised in the song with the same title)

    Why me Lord? (Kris Kristofferson)

    What have I ever done
    That was worth even one
    of the pleasures I've known?
    What did I ever do
    that was worth loving you
    and the kindness you've shown?

    Another one might be how two sincere, praying, Bible-studying, Christians can both
    earnestly desire to know the truth on a given matter and yet come to opposite conclusions?

    If a tree falls in the forest, and nobody is around to hear it, does it still make a sound?

    Then again, I might just ask if I was normal.

    Oh, truly sincere? Let me pause for a moment.

    Why are we born innocent and pure, yet incapable of doing anything until we are capable of corruption? Then just when we gain the experience and knowledge to have learned how to best overcome corruption we become old and incapable again?

    I would ask Him to explain to me what a person with perfect doctrinal beliefs would believe putting an end to all arguments. :D

    I would ask why if all the "experts" and "respected theologians" and "leading scientists" are right, how can there be so many differing conclusions? Who really determines who are the real experts, respected theologians, and leading scientists? :confused:

    Definition of an "Expert": Let's examine the roots of that word. An "Ex" is a "has-been" and a "pert" (pronounced "spurt") is a dwip under pressure. :D

    The bottom line all boils down to the sobering conclusion that some people are educated beyond their intelligence. Consequently, it is more noble to decline a confrontation, then to enter into a battle of wits with a half-armed person.

    If I could just spend a day with Jesus and be his best friend, as He is mine. Get to really KNOW him as well as I know my best earthly friend. Just to touch Him and spend quiet time just sitting and looking at him and listening to Him, I would be satisfied, and wouldn't need to ask anything. I would be home.

    Why am I the only nonbiased theologian in the world? ;)

    Seriously, I would ask as to why the eternal God would set His love upon me, draw me to himself and save me, when I have nothing to offer? Kinda like Dr. Bob's question. Why me?

    I liked Dr. Bob's question.

    Mine is a little tongue in cheek.

    Before. When?

    After. How?

    I've just started reading the boards so I'm a little. Late. No question for me to the Good Lord.... Just simple adoration.

    Bro. Thomas, aren't you already spending time with Jesus on a daily basis, reading His words, meditating in your heart, and listening to His instructions? I think you do! [​IMG]

    I'd like to join you in the "no question" department Bro. Thomas, for when we will see Jesus we will not need to ask of Him any more questions. PTL! :D

    Well I had a question all set in my mind, but He answered it. So I'll go with no question just adoration.

    WILL THE RED SOX EVER WIN THE WORLD SERIES?!
    No really I don't know if I will be able to ask him anything. Once I see him I'll probally fall to my face in awe. The only thing I think I'll be able to say is "thank you for saving me!"
    Then once I get the courage I'll ask him the red sox question!
