Jesus – The Only Saviour – A.S.K 16

BIBLE READING: Acts 4:1-12 TEXT: Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved (Acts 4:12). To some modern ears it appears a bit arrogant to claim that our way is the only way. I guess that is partly what lies behind this question. It does at first glance sound … Continue reading Jesus – The Only Saviour – A.S.K 16

The Death of Jesus – A.S.K 15

BIBLE READING: John 3:14-21 TEXT: For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16). God’s response to the big question of suffering – is to give us an even bigger answer! One that will blow your mind. One that even the angels are amazed at. One … Continue reading The Death of Jesus – A.S.K 15

God and Suffering – A.S.K 14

BIBLE READING: Psalm 119:65-72 TEXT: You are good and you do what is good; teach me your decrees (Psalm 119:68). In the previous chapter we talked about God’s thoughts and plans being good for us. That immediately raises the questions we now face in this chapter – which some people think are the most difficult questions of all. If God is good then why do … Continue reading God and Suffering – A.S.K 14

An Encouraging Report – “A Book in Action”

This report is in the new edition of The Record which I was delighted to see is maintaining and improving its standard with the new editor John MacDonald. It is a very encouraging report – not because it praises the book – but because it shows how it can be used.  I wrote A.S.K for the purpose that ‘Mowgli’ describes. It’s so encouraging to see that happening…. … Continue reading An Encouraging Report – “A Book in Action”

The Mind of God – A.S.K 13

  READING: 1 Corinthians 2:6-16 TEXT: … for, ‘Who has known the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?’ But we have the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2:16). Why does it matter what God thinks? This is the type of question that shows that the questioner is not really thinking, or does not really know what they are asking. It’s good that God is … Continue reading The Mind of God – A.S.K 13

The Trinity – A.S.K 12

It’s been encouraging to hear over the past week of more churches using A.S.K for their youth groups.   This week’s question concerns the Trinity.  I suspect this is a much neglected doctrine – and that there are a suprising number of people who consider themselves Christians who do not understand how important it is.   BIBLE READING: Matthew 28 TEXT: Then Jesus came to them … Continue reading The Trinity – A.S.K 12

A.S.K – The Gender of God

This weeks A.S.K question – but before we look at it some good news.  A.S.K is already being reprinted….there will be a couple of minor changes…so if you want the original edition you will need to get it now!     BIBLE READING: Numbers 23:1-26 TEXT: God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does … Continue reading A.S.K – The Gender of God

A.S.K 10 – The Uncreated God

BIBLE READING: Isaiah 40:21-31 TEXT: Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom (Isaiah 40:28). This is one of the most frequent and one of the most misunderstood questions I am ever asked. It is also very difficult … Continue reading A.S.K 10 – The Uncreated God

A.S.K 9 – Finding God

It’s so simple isn’t it? If only God made himself clear then of course we would believe in him! Why wouldn’t we? So it must be his fault in hiding away from us. It’s like he’s playing mind games with us – expecting us to figure it all out. The words in our text are spoken by a friend of Job called Zophar. You know … Continue reading A.S.K 9 – Finding God

A.S.K 8 – Science, Knowledge and God

This weeks A.S.K chapter….I was delighted to hear of a church where the minister used one of the chapters in his sermon and as a result adults are now reading and studying the book….or rather, using it to study.    Feel free to do the same…   BIBLE READING: Romans 1:18-23 TEXT: For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and … Continue reading A.S.K 8 – Science, Knowledge and God
