Forgive me now, because some will be offended, be in denial, and confused by many; if not all, the questions that I’m asking. I want truth to be in your present and future thoughts.
This is not a ploy to cause you to think what I think, to force you to turn from your ways of living, but to rouse you to think and search for the truth on your own. I can say anything and it sound so powerful and right, but I don’t come with graceful and wonderful speech, just hordes of questions that have been storing up more and more each day. This list of questions has been graciously shortened.
“I just want to be real”, “I just want to know the truth”, and “let the truth be known” are a few statements that we use with no thought to what we are really saying. Do we want to know the truth or are we babbling fools? I have so many questions about so many things that we have been taught in church. I don’t trust my life anymore with the lies. I search for the truth at all times. As a teen I was called or labeled rebellious because I didn’t believe or want to go along with many of the things that I was groomed to believe in. I knew deep inside of me there had to be more to this life than what government, society and church said there was.
How important is truth to you?
You search the corners of your heart and begin to write down some of the questions you may have, and then try to answer them with a true divine revelation of the word of God; which entails reading, research and studying for yourself. Things are not always what we think. “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge” says Hosea 4:6 (Please read the whole chapter).
1. Is living a traditional, ritualistic lie the rest of your life better for you than actually living according to the true revelation and understanding of the knowledge of God? 2. Why do we trust all that is told to us without researching it for ourselves? 3. Why is the church, the building and the body, going through so much turmoil and ridicule? 4. What’s the history of the True church? 5. Why and how did the Roman and Babylonian traditions and rituals wind up in our today churches? 6. How did we, the believers in Christ let this happen? 7. Do we continue to live by what we knew as truth or do we live by the divine revealed truth? 8. What is the true church? 9. Who is the true church? 10. How do we function as a true church? 11. Who is supposed to receive tithes and offerings according to scripture? 12. Is what we’ve been taught about tithes and offering the way God truly established it? 13. Is the church a part of the problem in our present day society? 14. Are we really dividing the word of God properly or are we preaching and teaching what we have learned from our elders and ancestors? 15. Who are the true worshipers? 16. Do we, the believers in Christ, want to know the truth and make some drastic changes in the way we live? 17. Would we really want to give up pagan holidays that we associate with the almighty God? 18. Have we let the enemy come in and set up camp right under our noses with lies that we celebrate as truths? 19. How many Scribes and Pharisees do we have in our pulpits today? 20. Is all that we do now in churches considered to be true or is it a form of whoredom? 21. What’s the history behind many of the holidays, days of celebrations, and traditions we observe as believers in Christ? 22. Are all of them scriptural? 23. Why do we go to church every Sunday? 24. Where in scripture does it say that we are to be in church every time the doors open? 25. How does politics and economics fit into the church?
I am forcing myself to stop here. The list of questions goes on and on… by the time, I am done or even came close to it, I would have written a novel.
Please don’t get angry with me for asking. I want to know the answers to these and many countless other who, what, when, where, why, and how questions. Do not think for a moment that I have all the answers, I do not, but I choose to find out as much as I can. I am presently doing research and study to at least answer a slight fraction of the questions that I have. I sincerely hope that you choose to do the same.
