Students ask awesome questions. Many times curiosity drives their exploration of faith and truth, and we want to reward their wonderings with some godly wisdom and timely truth. A few times a year we do this in our ASK [Almost] ANYTHING sessions with the middle schoolers at Willamette Christian Church. Today we tackled these questions students have been asking.
We’re received questions about relationships:
- How do you help a friend who is struggling?
- How do I get along with my siblings?
- I have a friend who likes someone who I think is rude. Should I tell her, or should I just leave the issue alone?
And on Christian living:
- Why does God want us always to forgive? Isn’t it sometimes too bad to always forgive?
- What did you make me for? What is my purpose?
- How can I hear God talking to me?
Questions about God:
- Who created God?
- [Asking God] Why did you make Satan if He knew that he would become the devil?
- [Asking God] How do You know all?
- Why don’t You do stuff like the burning bush anymore?
- What are some things that I can do as a home school student to serve God?
- What are more ways to serve God and others?
There are also questions on doctrine and theology:
- What age do babies automatically stop going to heaven?
- What is it like in heaven?
- When will the world end?
And many other questions showing the students’ curiosity:
- Was Solomon really the smartest man ever?
- Will you wash away my sins?
- I believe in God, but sometimes I am afraid that I will go to hell. How can I be sure that I won’t?
- When you pray for something, does it come true?
