Questioning the bible is fun?
1) Pick a target scripture.
2) Pick an official question keeper
2) Pray for God to lead you in finding the best questions (not answers).
3) Build a list of as many questions as we can think of about the target scripture.
Come up with the mostest veryest bestest questions about the target scripture and take them to God in prayer.
Come back and share any additional questions God may have given you.
The one rule, no answers, only questions.
The one other rule, genuine questions from the heart.
It will sound like a chat room full of Three and a half year old spiritual kids.
Give the trusty random bible verse thingy a spin and we get..... Drum Roll Please
Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. - James 4:7
A tough one, the simpler and shorter they are the harder they are to question.
Don't be greedy one question to a customer, please.
I honestly think this was a fun idea. Maybe there was just more clarification needed as to how to participate.
I don't think you ever meant it to be questioning the validity of the Bible, or making fun of it. I wish there was a lighter hearted place on CC to talk about the Bible where one doesn't need to take blood pressure meds before hand. lol. I've always enjoyed discussing the Bible with fellow believers. This seems very different. I need to keep reading through the BDF to put my finger on why it seems so stressful.
Are the below questions, sort of what you meant? Sorry I was super greedy and asked too many.
Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
- James 4:7
Why do we need to submit ourselves to God?
What is submitting ourselves to God in response to as it says, Submit yourselves, THEN to God?
How do we submit ourselves to God?
How do we resist the devil?
What Bible characters do we know who resisted the devil?
Have you had occasion to resist the devil? What did that look like?
Will the devil only flee from us if we resist him?
How long will he flee for?
Is this what you meant? Only just one question at a time? And not answering them, just coming up with more and more questions about it? Wondering is a form of worship. We are giving the Lord our attention and open hearts for Him!! He can answer these questions better than any human can.
