But whoever has doubts is condemned if they eat, because their eating is not from faith; and everything that does not come from faith is sin. – Romans 14:23 NIV


Many questions, particularly “why” questions, have plagued Christians who have walked closely with God. However, it might have been taught to be cautious about raising too many theological issues. It is typical in some circles to minimize the significance of having questions and wanting to understand God better.

It is crucial to seek an understanding of God.  One must make a distinction between real knowledge and that which is “falsely labeled knowledge.” God declares categorically in Hosea 4:6 NIV: “my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children.

It is astonishing to note how frequently God welcomes questions in the Scriptures, even though many people are afraid to ask them of Him. One will not get an answer to their many concerns if they are afraid to ask God questions. Moses questioned God numerous times. For instance, after Moses pleaded for the Israelites’ release from Pharaoh and they protested against him because of the extra responsibility he has placed upon them. “Moses returned to the Lord and said, “Why, Lord, why have you brought trouble on this people? Is this why you sent me?” – Exodus 5:22 NIV. Moses received amazing miracles and rescue from God, which culminated in the Exodus.

The severe oppression by the Midianites is addressed by Gideon in a similar way when he asks God, “Pardon me, my lord,” Gideon replied, “but if the Lord is with us, why has all this happened to us? Where are all his wonders that our ancestors told us about when they said, ‘Did not the Lord bring us up out of Egypt?’ But now the Lord has abandoned us and given us into the hand of Midian.” – Judges 6:13. Once more, God unmistakably provides Gideon with the answer he sought, delivering His people.

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you”, says Jesus, encouraging us to do so while maintaining our faith in Matt. 7:7 NIV. When we are unsure about something, as Christians, we must learn to ask God questions because God speaks to us in many different ways. However, we may determine whether the act is prayerful or not based on how we ask. Therefore, let us be wise and humble in our questions to God.
