Romans 1 describes lost people as "haters of God".
2 Timothy 3 describes people in the last days of the church as "lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God."
These people are always ready to try to embarrass Christians with questions like:
• If God is good, why do bad things happen?
• If God really cares, why doesn’t He stop all the misery?
• If God loves, why does He allow suffering?
Those that hate God and love pleasure more than God ask these types of questions with a motive to make the Christian feel awkward and embarrassed.
In Romans 9 Paul responds by saying:
"Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?"
Sinful men will try to put our Holy God on trial by asking insincere questions.
Their pride blinds them from being able to receive an answer based on biblical truth. So, instead of answering their question, consider flipping the table by putting them on trial.
Ask them: Who do YOU think YOU are, to question God?
