Somehow….I’m not really sure how….I found a list of Questions Your Pastor Will Hate. Which is not only hilarious, but insightful. Remember all the questions about God you had as a kid? Like, "if God is really that big, how can he live in my heart?" and "If God is omnipotent, can he create a rock so big that even He couldn’t lift it?"
My favorites include:
"If Herod killed all the little children under two to get at Jesus, who escaped, can we not say the little children had to die for Jesus before he died for them?" Answer…No we can’t, sheesh.
"How come Herod couldn’t follow the Star of Bethlehem himself to find Jesus, but sent others to report back when they found him?" Answer…He was busy.
"How could Mary leave town after being warned of Herod’s intentions and never tell the women in the town, their kids were about to be butchered?" Answer…she was under oath not to tell the Angel story.
"Do you think Mary thought, ‘I know something you don’t know,’ as she left town?" Answer…you’re sick.
"If Jesus was asked ‘who sinned, this man or his parents that he was born blind?’, would that not imply the man had sinned before his birth, perhaps in a previous life, if his blindness at birth was some kind of punishment? I mean, the blindness was from birth, so the sin had to be before that." Answer…Ummm.., no. Whatever the answer, it’s definitely not that one.
