HARD TO ANSWER BIBLICAL QUESTIONS
When reading the Bible we often come across passages that cause us to question why, passages that just don’t make sense. This leaves us wondering why God would allow it and it opens a door for Satan to divide the church.
While watching an episode of Forensic Files one day, called “Up in smoke” season 4 episode 29, the show displayed a perfect example of hidden reasons for events that happened in the Bible and how I view Bible study. In this episode the family home caught on fire, the adult son stated his mother accidently set the couch on fire while lighting a cigarette. During the investigation they found gasoline on the wood floors and immediately believed the son had set the fire to kill his parents. After further investigation they found lead in the gasoline, which had not been sold in the USA for years. They eventually discovered in the 1970’s the contractors would sometimes cut corners while building a house, diluting the floor varnish with gasoline to make it go farther. Because of this hidden fact the man almost went to prison for life had it not been for those who did not give up on the investigation.
There are so many hidden facts behind the questions we have about the Bible and God’s character, that not only keeps us from God, but also causes division within the church, but the one who does not give up on Biblical investigation will find the hidden answers to their questions.
Jeremiah 33:3 says “Call to Me, and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know.”
