No. Absolutely not! It is more than ok to question the Bible. I urge you to continue to ask questions about the Bible. You may be pleasantly surprised to learn how profoundly its teachings differ from those of most organized religions. Far from promoting wars and ethnic violence, the Bible teaches that God’s servants must repudiate war and even the hatred that leads to such violence. (Isaiah 2:2-4; Matthew 5:43, 44; 26:52) Far from advocating fanaticism and belief without evidence, the Bible teaches that evidence is essential to genuine faith and that the power of reason is an indispensable aid to serving God. (Romans 12:1; Hebrews 11:1) Far from squelching curiosity, the Bible encourages us to probe some of the most fascinating and challenging questions that humans have ever faced.
For example, have you ever wondered, ‘If there is a God, why does he allow wickedness?’ The Bible addresses that question, as well as many others, in a satisfying way. * We urge you to pursue your quest for truth. You can find answers that are fascinating, thrilling, reasonable—and based on convincing evidence. And that is no accident. Some may feel that it is disrespectful, but did you know that many good people questioned God in the Bible? Here are a few examples.
The faithful man Job: “Why is it that the wicked themselves keep living, have grown old, also have become superior in wealth?”—Job 21:7.
The loyal prophet Habakkuk: “Why is it that you look on those dealing treacherously, that you keep silent when someone wicked swallows up someone more righteous than he is?”—Habakkuk 1:13.
Jesus Christ: “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”—Matthew 27:46.
If you read the passages surrounding those quotations, you will see no indication that Jehovah * God was offended when asked such sincere questions. Really, his tolerance is not surprising. For instance, God is not insulted when we ask him to satisfy basic physical needs that keep our bodies healthy. He gladly fills those requests. (Matthew 6:11, 33) Likewise, he willingly supplies information that can keep us mentally and emotionally healthy. (Philippians 4:6, 7) In fact, Jesus told his disciples: “Keep on asking, and it will be given you.” (Matthew 7:7) The context of Jesus’ promise shows that he was talking about receiving not only material things but also answers to important questions.
If you had the opportunity, which of the following questions would you like to ask God?
Does my life have a purpose?
What will happen when I die?
Why do you allow me to suffer?
Since “all Scripture is inspired of God,” you will find the answers God gives in his Word, the Bible. (2 Timothy 3:16) Consider both what has prompted some to ask the questions listed above and the answers that the Bible provides.
