No! In fact, we should question everything we hear that pertains to God, doctrine, our walk with God and anything about life! Those who never question become blind followers that eventually become blind leaders.
Sadly, many that question the status quo become rebellious in their attitude, which always leads to destruction. Religion makes them believe they are rebellious for simply asking questions.
Questioning what we hear, what we’re taught, is a NT directive. “Test all things, hold fast to what is good.” Questioning is not synonymous with condemning those who are speaking, it is about guarding your own heart. We’re not questioning for the purpose of attacking, arguing or proving our position right. We question because, as disciples, we hunger for the truth.
A vain imagination is an argument that is based on subjective experiences, intellectual calculations, extrapolation, and personal preference. When we use anything but the life, teaching, death, burial and resurrection of Jesus to interpret God’s Word, discover the application of God’s Word and determine the identity of God, it is vain and imaginary!
For years I prayed to see God as He really was. Finally, I realized: God’s Word, interpreted through the life of Jesus, was the complete revelation of God. I opened my eyes from prayer, went back to my Bible and have spent the last 40 years looking at Jesus, making Him the center of my life, my faith and my understanding of God!
