2 Questions That People Really Want God To Answer
There are many of our brothers and sisters out there who just can’t find some answers to the most puzzling questions in life. For the ones who have suffered from tragedy are unable to find satisfying answers to their questions about God. Some then become atheists, while others may not entirely deny God’s existence, but they become skeptical.
In some cases, some bad experiences with religion push them towards a more skeptical side. People like this often feel that organized religion, they may feel, has failed to answer life’s tough questions. These are the same questions that people who claim to have faith in God struggle with:
1 “WHY DO YOU ALLOW SUFFERING?”
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
“As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts. – Isaiah 55: 8,9
Many out there conclude: ‘A loving God would prevent life’s tragedies,’
Many believe that the presence of suffering proves that God does not exist. Others, though, who have come to understand why God has allowed suffering, are confident that he does exist.
One must understand that God’s thoughts and ways are different from ours. (Isaiah 55:8, 9) Because of that, his actions may at first seem strange to us.
2 “WHY ARE WE HERE?”
What is the purpose of every human’s brief existence?
But the meek will inherit the land
and enjoy peace and prosperity. – Psalm 37:11
Even those who do not believe in God still recognize the need to account for the complexity, intricacy, and order of the natural world. Our planet, other planets, and the moon are configured in just the right way to sustain life on earth.
The way people view our relatively brief life span as proof that there is no God is the same reason to why the natural world gives ample evidence that there is a Creator. (Romans 1:20) He had a purpose in making these things, and the reason for our existence is closely linked to his purpose. God created humans to live forever on the earth, and he has not abandoned his purpose.—Psalm 37:11, 29; Isaiah 55:11.
For us to truly get to know God’s purpose, we need to communicate with him! Prayer and study of his word the best ways of getting to know your creator.
