The Big Questions

Caution advised:  Mankind cannot and will not know everything (at least not in this life).  This Uth4Christ provision is not to get you questioning, but for you to gain greater understanding of everything spiritual-related from simple questions like, "Who is Jesus?" to the more complicated, "Why do bad things happen?"

WHO

...is Christ coming back?


We intentionally do not know. If we knew when He was coming, it would take the sincerity out of how we live our lives and our devotion to Christ. We are alwaus to expect it, so we aren't caught off guard when He does come. When He comes, He wants to find us doing well, so that we can go to be with Him.





WHERE

Is there only one God?


Yes, but there's two parts to this: First, there is only one and true living God. God, the Father of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The God that Christians worship and read of in the Bible. Second, don't be confused with the term "Trinity". Trinity only means that there is 3 parts to 1 God. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost is one God with three different roles.




Does God see everything I do?


He does. Not only that, He knows every hair upon your head. If some fall out, He still knows. We call it omnipresent and omniscient--He's everywhere and knows everything. We only have power to see the things directly around us. But being God, He's able to be right next to you and still be the one who keeps the earth spinning.




Can God forgive all my sins?


Not only can He, but it's a promise to all who ask for forgiveness. He chunks those sins as far as the east is from the west and into the Lake of Forgetfulness. And once that happens, you are totally free from that bondage and weight. Unlike people, He won't throw it back in your face on down the road.




Do we have to fold our hands to pray?


Absolutely not. Folding hands perhaps is more polite or helps to keeo your hands still...But Scripture tells us that we are always to pray. Can you imagine eating or writing out your history paper or playing basketball with your hands folded? Of course not. He simply desires us to pray within our heart in everything we do--keeping a constant line of communication between us. If at the dinner table or at night before your bed you wish to fold your hands, please do.




Can Christians hear God talking to Him?


There’s a few ways God can talk to us.

  1. Right out speak it, as He often did to His people in the Old Testament. There’s no rule that says He can’t now...if He wills it, He certainly will. However, this is rare now that we have His Spirit within us.
  2. Through His Word. It is His Word, is it not? You’ll be amazed at how personal scriptures can be to you at the very time you need it. He's speaking to you!
  3. Through His people--prophets, preachers, teachers, etc. They are His mouthpieces and He uses them to bring a message to us.
  4. Sometimes He even speaks to us in our dreams through visions.
Regardless of how He speaks to you (and He does), we should take just as much care to listen and obey.





WHAT

...does God look like?


Many people have an image of what God looks like in their minds, but the simple answer: we don’t know. God has not revealed what He looks like because it is too great (Exodus 33:20). How does someone that always was and always will be even look like?? The I AM? It’s just more than we can comprehend. What do we know? We do know we are made in the image of God (Genesis 1:27). We know He is God the Father, God the Son (Jesus/man), and God the Spirit (Holy Spirit/spirit). He has shown Himself as fire (Exodus 3:2; 19:18), as a cloud (Exodus 13:21), or even as a person (Genesis 32:22-30). Scripture also mentions the “eyes of the Lord” and His ears (Psalm 34:15); “spoke face to face” (Exodus 33:11); “face shall not be seen” (Exodus 33:23). This describes the actions of God (seeing us, hearing us, etc.) in ways that we can comprehend. Until we meet Him in eternity, we must be content and grateful with what He does reveal to us in this life.
