When one is offered 3 wishes, the common wisdom (with a grin) is to ask for:
. – good health,
. – great wealth, and …
. – 3 more wishes!
It is an interesting “thought experiment” to ask someone …
“If you could get guaranteed truthful answers to 3 questions … what would you ask?
While some clever people might think to ask:
. “What will be the winning lotto numbers next week?
. “What stock will gain the most value in the next week?
Many will not think to ask such things, and instead, the questions that will come to mind are what often are called “The Big Questions of Life”. The questions include:
- Who am I?
- Does God Exist?
- Where do I come from?
- Why am I here?
- What happens after death?
- Why does God allow pain & suffering?
As a young teen, I encountered a church that asked those questions … & provided me answers (before I even thought to be distressed about seeking the answers to these mysteries!)
The Bible … is unafraid to tackle such questions & provides a reliable source of answers…
From Job’s question … “If a man dies, shall he live again?” (Job 14:14)
To David’s song to God, asking : “What is man? that You are mindful of him (Psa 8:4)
To Pilate’s musing (with Jesus) asking “What is Truth?” (John 18:38)
We “will be” and “have been” addressing these questions (& more) in these blog posts.
When Jesus built His Church, He sent out disciples to preach the good news of the Kingdom of God. The Church of God International seeks to provide answers to those seeking the truth. Perhaps you might want to explore this Church … Here are some tools:
