“This is what the LORD says–the Holy One of Israel, and its Maker: Concerning things to come, do you question me about my children, or give me orders about the work of my hands?”
Languages, words can play games with us and we play games with them.
Question, what is question and what it is to be questioned?
I think the answer is obvious.
- Question: An expression of inquiry that invites or calls for a reply.
- Questioned: An interrogative sentence, phrase, or gesture or To express doubt about; dispute.
Do you think that we can questioned God?
Do you think that we can ask questions God?
The difference is clear. The Lord wants us to ask the questions and get understanding, clarity, to search and find, to seek and knock. When we search for something, we need to ask questions, such as What, How, Why, When…
“…a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away,…”
On the other hand, there is no scripture that supports that we can question God, that we can doubt His existence, His power, His Holiness or to dispute. We can test Him – in one and only case (Malachi 3v10) but question Him? No!
We can ask Him as many questions so we get insight and come closer to Him. In fact, I believe that we need to ask questions upon questions, more we search more we deepen in our faith, stronger we become.
It is written… Beyond all question…
“Beyond all question, the mystery of godliness is great: He appeared in a body, was vindicated by the Spirit, was seen by angels, was preached among the nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in glory.”
