- Is God Indifferent?
- Does God Not Know?
- Is God Unloving?
- Is God Unwilling?
- Did God Prepare Hell for Man?
- Did God Prepare Heaven for Man?
These questions are asked and answered in the message.
Job 23:3-4 KJV
3 Oh that I knew where I might find him! that I might come even to his seat! 4 I would order my cause before him, and fill my mouth with arguments.
Job 23:8-10 KJV
8 Behold, I go forward, but he is not there; and backward, but I cannot perceive him: 9 On the left hand, where he doth work, but I cannot behold him: he hideth himself on the right hand, that I cannot see him: 10 But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.
Isaiah 55:8-9 KJV
8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. 9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
