Sermon Illustrations

Two men were walking along discussing God, eternity, and judgment. One of them stops and says, “You know, there is a question I’d like to ask God.”

“What question?” his friend responds.

“How could you let all the evil and despair and injustice occur in this world?”

“Yeah, it doesn’t make sense!”

The first guy stops and with serious expression says, “But the question terrifies me!”

“Terrifies you? How could asking such a fundamental question terrify you?”

“Well, I’m afraid God might ask me the same question.”
