I’m trying to work out a funny irony – maybe you all can help.
A number of Christians I have known seem to think that asking questions about the faith is okay: if God is Truth, and the questions stem from a genuine desire to know the Truth, then God will lead the questioner to Himself. Seek and ye shall find, knock and the door shall be opened unto you, etc.
Yet if one’s questions lead them away from the faith, the story seems to change. In that case, the same Christians seem to think that the questioner hasn’t found the Truth; they’ve been blinded by Satan or their own sin.
So…it seems that it’s only really okay to ask questions if they lead the questioner back to the original answers and back into the fold.
That doesn't make any sense to me. But what's weirder is that it made total sense to me when I was a devout believer.
