You may not be questioning the existence of God, but you may have a spiritual inquiry nagging you from time to time. We know God personally but not perfectly, truly but not totally, experientially but not exhaustively. It is natural that finite creatures like us would have questions about an infinite Creator like God. He is neither surprised nor offended by our questions. In fact, the Bible is full of questions--3,294 to be exact. God wants us to bring our questions to Him and give Him a shot at providing an answer.
As a pastor of five churches over thirty-five years, Dr. Merritt has fielded hundreds of questions from skeptics, seekers, sinners, and saints. Many of those questions pop up again and again. As it turns out, certain questions claw at us all. This message series, which includes excerpts from Dr. Merritt's recent book, "God, I've Got a Question", answers four of the most common questions for God through study and exposition of His Word. As you explore these questions, you will discover answers from the Bible that will both comfort the heart and challenge the mind to go deeper with God than ever before.
"For the most frequent questions I have been asked, I have found certain answers that bring peace and satisfaction to questioning minds and breaking hearts. These answers are, like buried treasure, to be discovered and mined from the only One who can give us those answers. In fact, you will see that much of God’s Word was written in anticipation of the questions we all find ourselves asking." --Dr. Merritt
