When it comes to faith, there are some questions about God that many of us have encountered one way or the other. These questions may have been fueled by doubts but they, in turn, have made our faith even stronger. Here are some of those questions:
What Are Your Questions About God?
- If God is the God of all, why did He allow sin to enter the world?
- Did God, being the Creator, create hell?
- If God is a powerful God, why can’t He eradicate every famine, oppression, sickness, poverty, crime, war, and all that is considered sin and evil in this world?
- Why must people continue to suffer and perish because of the sin that Adam & Eve committed if God is a loving God?
- Why must God allow Satan to test Job?
These are questions about God that have been answered and explained by a lot of biblical scholars. All the answers vary, and some can lead to even more questions. When I was still new in my faith, I also asked these questions. And when I celebrated my 5th year as a Christian this year, I still asked these questions. The only difference between the two scenarios is that I haven’t read much of the Bible before but now it’s the opposite.

If we are to assess these questions based on our human thinking and understanding and try to come up with only one good answer, it’s impossible. But if we are to ask these questions in light of the Scripture listed below, we will begin to understand they will remain as questions and it is only God who can answer them.
Here are the bible verses:
“For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.” – Isaiah 55:9
“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” – Hebrews 11:1
“He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.” – Revelation 21:4
“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace” – Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
“Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me.” – John 14:1
“I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” – John 16:33
In Christianity and faith, there is no room for doubt. It’s because the Scripture which is God-breathed, assured us already that our journey here on earth is never alone because He sent to us our partner and our guide and that is the Spirit who will lead us always.
