QUESTIONS? QUESTIONS? QUESTIONS?

QUESTION: to ask for information, to test one's knowledge, a problem that is being discussed,
to express doubt or have uncertainties...INTERROGATIVE, debate,investigation, ---
DO WE UNDERSTAND THE ROLE OF QUESTIONS?
GREAT TEACHERS ASK GREAT QUESTIONS!
Did Adam and Eve have a belly button? They were not born?
On the phone--- why is the 0 after 9, logic should be 0-1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9 not after nine?
What would you do with a Million dollars?
Would you rather be RICH or HEALTHY?
WHAT ARE YOUR PET PEEVES?
What ticks you off?
How can you drop an egg 10 feet on a concrete floor and it not break?
Sorry, concrete is hard and does not break easily?
Will a cannibal eat a clown?
They say clowns taste funny?
SEEMS I HAVE ALL THE ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS THAT NO ONE IS ASKING?
QUESTIONS ARE PART OF LIFE!
A question can show stupidity:
A woman marries a man... he dies. The second husband dies, as does the third
all the way down to the SEVENTH BROTHER?
MY QUESTION IS: HOW IS SHE LEGALLY KILLING HER HUSBANDS?
DID SHE HAVE INSURANCE?
THE DUMB QUESTION:
WHOSE WIFE WILL SHE BE...
Matthew 22:28 Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the seven? for they all had her.
29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.
STUPIDITY? The mother that keeps allowing her to marry her sons?
MY DAD WAS A PRETTY SMART MAN... HE HAS BEEN A PASTOR OVER 60 YEARS...
DAD TAUGHT ME A GREAT LESSON ABOUT QUESTIONS...
Often people come to you with a debate question? Or a question that can not be answered...?
They are wanting to start an argument...
My dad taught me a smart trick he learned from JESUS!
ANSWER THE QUESTION WITH A QUESTION...
THE CHIEF PRIEST, THE SCRIBES, AND THE ELDERS HAD PLOTTED AND REASONED TO
TRAP JESUS IN A QUESTION?
Mark 11:27 And they come again to Jerusalem: and as he was walking in the temple, there come to
him the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders, 28 And say unto him, By what authority doest
thou these things? and who gave thee this authority to do these things?
Mark 11:29 And Jesus answered and said unto them, I will also ask of you one question, and answer
me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things. 30 The baptism of John, was it from heaven,
or of men? answer me. 31 And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven;
he will say, Why then did ye not believe him? 32 But if we shall say, Of men; they feared the people:
for all men counted John, that he was a prophet indeed. 33 And they answered and said unto Jesus,
We cannot tell. And Jesus answering saith unto them, Neither do I tell you by what authority I do
WE MUST CONSIDER SEVERAL ISSUES THAN JUST THECONSIDER WHEN WE THINK ABOUT
WHO ASK THE QUESTION?
TO WHOM WAS THE QUESTION ADDRESSED?
WHAT WAS THE MOTIVE BEHIND THE QUESTION?
THE FIRST QUESTION OF THE BIBLE WAS ASKED BY GOD---
TO HIS HUMAN CREATION...
Genesis 3:9 And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?
WHY ARE ADAM AND EVE HIDING?
GOD KNEW WHERE ADAM WAS BEFORE HE ASK THE QUESTION...
WHY WERE THEY AFRAID? God walked and talked with them every day.
HOW DID THEY KNOW THEY WERE NAKED?
THE SECOND QUESTION ASKED WAS SERIOUS...
GOD ASKED THE SECOND QUESTION?
CAIN ASKED THE THIRD QUESTION... TO COVER THE ANSWER OF THE SECOND
WHERE IS YOUR BROTHER? GOD.
Genesis 4:9 And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said,
I know not: Am I my brother's keeper?
CAIN ANSWERS WITH A QUESTION:
AM I MY BROTHER'S KEEPER?
IT IS A GOOD THING TO KNOW WHERE YOU ARE...
BUT THERE IS ANOTHER ISSUE TO THAT ANSWER?
WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?
GOD KNEW WHERE ELIJAH WAS...
ELIJAH WAS HIDING IN A CAVE HAVE A DEPRESSION-PITY PARTY...
1 Kings 19:9 And he came thither unto a cave, and lodged there; and, behold, the word of the
LORD came to him, and he said unto him, What doest thou here, Elijah?
I AM THE ONLY ONE?
1 Kings 19:10 And he said, I have been very jealous for the LORD God of hosts: for the children
of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the
sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.
IT IS EASY TO LIE TO YOURSELF AND HIDE THE REAL ISSUES...
