Is the act of questioning wrong? Well, one could argue that point. Perhaps, it is based on what is being questioned. However, in general, no, asking questions isn’t wrong. Want proof? Jesus did it! That’s right, even Jesus asked questions, so that means it can’t be a sin. Of course, the motive for asking any question should be considered. When Jesus asked a question, He really didn’t need the answer. He’s God, after all. He instead was asking it to encourage others to search deeper, think more profoundly and perhaps even clarify their beliefs. To learn more below:
Profound Questions Jesus Asked: All in Verse Form
- Who Do People Say I Am? Matthew 16:13 “Who do people say the son of man is?” This question was directed at Jesus’ disciples and was used to get them to think deeper. Jesus followed this up with “Who do you say I am?” in verse 15. This is an even more insightful question. It goes deeper than who “others” think Jesus is and gets at the heart of the matter, that being who is Jesus to each of us.
- Why Do You Need a Sign? Mark 5:39 “Why does this generation seek a sign?” This could be a bit of aggravation showing through on Jesus’ part. He was tiring of the “need for signs.” After all, isn’t He the biggest best sign there could ever be?
- Do You Want to be Well? John 5:6 “When Jesus saw him lying there and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, He asked him, “Do you want to get well?” This question is deeply profound. Jesus wasn’t just talking about the man’s outward condition. He was asking him if he was ready for a healing of body, mind and spirit, a life change.
