Do I Really Want The Answers?

I was thinking the other day that I have heard a lot of people claim that they are going to get all the answers once they die. They surmise that God is going to answer ALL of thier questions once they are before Him and they will know everything that He knows. Really? 

So let me get this straight. A sinful human being who is saved ONLY by what God did, for His purpose, for His glory, by His grace, according to His will and by His sacrifice is going to know everything that God Himself knows? And I'm not supposed to think that this "logic" is flawed? Arrogant? Far-fetched? Sinful? Preposterous? 

Could it be that sinful man wants as the devil to be like God? Could a human being even absorb all of the knowledge that God has? If it were even possible, what would be the difference between God and man then? As Jesus said, "Are you willing to drink from the cup that I am going to drink from?" In other words are you willing to be imprisoned, beaten, spit upon, ridiculed and finally crucified for something you didn't do? Are you willing to sacrifice your life for others? Are you sinless? Perfect? Flawless? Apparently the Bible doesn't agree with your inflated view of yourself. The Bible reminds us that NOONE is righteous, not even one. The Bible reminds us that "ALL have sinned and fall short of the glory of God". Why then would a holy and righteous God give ALL knowledge to someone who is described as falling short and not righteous?

I cannot fathom what goes through the mind of the arrogant, haughty and proud that they would dream up such a ridiculous notion! Let me publicly say that I am quite happy knowing that I WON'T know everything, EVER. I am VERY happy knowing that God is God and I am not. I am completely content with trusting God that He knows and that is sufficient for me. If I had all knowledge, what would I need faith for? If I was like God, what would I need Him for? If I was able to save myself then I could do so without Him. If I could judge myself worthy of heaven, what would be the point of a Savior? If I could judge myself worthy of heaven then why couldn't everyone else also grant themselves eternal life also? The cross would have no meaning, no purpose and no salvation attached to it. The life and death of Jesus would be pointless. The scripture that tells mankind that "narrow is the way and few who find it", would be tantamount to hyperbole.

God's word tells us that He does not lie. God's word tells us that He is truth. God's word tells us that He is sinless, perfect and righteous. So when He says that narrow is the way and few who find it, I believe Him! When a human being tells me something, I reserve judgement until its been proven to be true. I know from experience that people do not always tell the truth. I know from experience that people can be mistaken. I know from experience that people will mislead another person for personal gain. I also know from experience that God always tells the truth. I know from experience that God has NEVER been mistaken. I know from experience that God has NEVER misled anyone for any reason.

      Whatever? That’s a teenage cop out. Isn’t it time you grow up?

            What does the scripture says? Why doesn’t Pig believe the Bible?

              She doesn’t believe the Bible for the same reason that you don’t believe.

    Jesus was quite pissed off with the supplicants and cripple of spirit. He told them straight out: “Stand up and walk!” These days, I would tell them to clean up and go get a job instead of waiting for handouts. Food or answer – it’s the same damn thing.

      Really? I’ve read LOTS of scripture from various translations, own a Strong’s Concordance and numerous biblical resources and I’ve never read nor heard that Jesus was “quite pissed off”. I have heard unbelievers make this claim considering that they are clueless about deity, sinlessness or God’s purpose I chalk it up to ignorance. The same could be said for your “interpretation”.

        You don’t think Jesus was pissed off when he kicked the shit out of those low-lives in the Temple of Jerusalem? Don’t be a dumbass liberal who celebrate weakness. Be all knowing and perfect as your Father in Heaven is perfect.

          I don’t get it from the Bible so no, I don’t “think” it. Funny, I’ve never heard any biblical scholars, commentaries nor any Concordance that says that Jesus “kicked the sh$#” out of anyone. Guess that must be just you reading YOUR “interpretation” into scripture and since I’m not interested in your views, it really doesn’t matter to me what you think. It DOES matter to me what God thinks and what He says so I guess your “interpretation” is simply that, YOUR “interpretation”.

        The Bible doesn’t say it in so many words, Will. Have you not seen the movies? Jesus tore into those money-changers and money-lenders and traders doing business in the Temple. It was a place of worship. It’s like our US Congress: a place for governing; and yet, that damn place is filled with critters of the swamp. Trump, like Jesus, has to drain it and kick the shit out of those crooks we elected to work for us. The world is corrupt. How do you tell your kids the truth about this stinking hell of a world?

          No, the Bible doesn’t say it. Men can claim all sorts of things and believe all sorts of things but God tells the truth. The movies are Hollywood’s idea of what would make a “good movie” but they are NOT truth, NOT scripture and NOT what God says. The world is corrupt because it contains unbelievers like you.

    In my opinion God will answer all our inquiries but not to know what he knows.
    We cannot and will not put ourselves on the same level or higher than God.
    Lucifer had this ego trip and look where it got him.
    Here’s a wingding notion…
    I wander what questions these atheists will asked once they face God ?
    Will God find their names inscribed in the Book ?

      God wants us to be like Him. Don’t you want your kids to be like you?

        God wants us to be righteous, we aren’t. God wants us to follow His commandments, we don’t. God wants us to be holy, we aren’t. God wants us to follow Christ, we crucified Him. Do I want my kids to be like me? Not exactly like me, no. Do I want my kids to be like Jesus, YES! Telling my kids the truth means that I tell them the TRUTH NOT MY OPINION of the truth. To give an opinion of the world is NOT truth, it is opinion. The Bible is truth, the ONLY truth. God does not lie.

          Double talk, Will. That’s the tongue of the Devil. Jesus did not hide behind the Holy Book be it the Bible or the Torah. He spoke directly to those who would listen what’s in His heart. If your kids would listen, what would you do? Shove the Bible in their face or tell them what’s in your heart?

            “Double talk”? No, it’s scripture of course you wouldn’t know

      You of course can have your opinion but, your opinion is NOT proven by scripture. You can believe whatever you wish but again, that is your opinion and it is not what scripture says. Personally I do not believe that we will be able to ask God ANY questions.

        Don’t be a coward, Will. Be an American: he who embodies the Truth. Only the Devil would be scared of embodying God. Jesus was the vessel of the Holy Spirit, the living God.

          “Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world.” “I can do all things through Christ who strengthened me.”
