Man Asks, God Answers

Man Asks God Answers CoverBook Description

What Questions Would You Ask God?

Through the centuries, human beings have wrestled with many difficult questions. Some call these the “ultimate questions,” for they defy easy answers, even for those who search diligently. Some of these questions include: “Is there a God?” “Is God in Control?” “Where did evil come from?” and “Why do bad things happen to good people?” It is possible to find answers to these questions?

Craig R. Brown affirms that there are answers to the ultimate questions, but it is impossible for man to find them through his own reasoning. Instead, he must set aside his self-reliance and look to God with an openness to accept the answers He provides.

In Man Asks, God Answers, Brown presents God’s answers to seven of life’s toughest questions. In straightforward, direct language, he tells his readers what the Bible has to say regarding the above questions and others. These thought-provoking answers will set the open-minded reader on a path toward a new way of investigating truth – one that relies on the source of truth itself – and toward answers that bring satisfaction and joy.

The Book of Job and “The Problem of Evil” (Job 1:12)

20170101-acts-02_23-24-memeOn Sunday, January 1, 2017, Pastor Joe Troutman preached “The Book of Job and the Problem of Evil” from Job 1:12.

God is in sovereign control of all that happens, and all that happens brings glory to his name and good to his people.

1. The Problem of Pain—Pain is often the thing that brings us to the end of ourselves and drives us to Christ.

2. Not By A Bare Permission—Your present suffering God will use for his glory and your good if you trust in him, although you may never be freed from your suffering in this life.

3. God’s Solution to the Problem—Jesus Christ came to suffer so that you would not have to endure eternal suffering.
