It's OK to Ask Questions!!

It's considered intimidating, rude, maybe even rebellious and a "sign of pride" to ask questions in church today. If you don't tow the line and obey without question what the pastors and teachers are saying and teaching then you will be classed as a black sheep ... probably! Unless you are blessed enough to be in a grace church where faith and vision is welcomed, loved, honoured and developed.

I'll never forget Terry Virgo saying this at Stoneleigh Bible Week 2001. It shows why he is such a natural apostle and father - he is deliberately challenging the young people to ask questions and not be satisfied and not settle.

Two wise people have told me to never stop asking questions.

One was a woman who has raised the dead. She said...never stop asking questions. Never. You cannot learn if you don't ask.

The other, was Isi. I remember telling her about my visions, and telling her I ask God a lot of questions when I'm in heaven, in a trance, or a dream, or just a vision. Heck I asked them a lot of questions. She told me to never stop, no matter what. I question everything. Dan...don't you dare stop asking questions. Its advice that has stood me in good stead...even if it has caused problems for some!

Love you so so so much
