5 Biblical Rhetorical Questions You Can Use to Preach to Yourself

By Eric Geiger

There are questions that are not really questions, but statements masked as questions. For example, when Kaye has said to me, “Are you going to wear that?” it has not really been a question. When you are at lunch with an ultra-healthy friend and you order a double patty burger and they order a kale salad and ask, “Are you going to eat that?” it is not really a question. The apostle Paul used this tactic, as he wrote Romans 8, to build the case that believers in Christ are never going to be separated from God’s enduring love. The questions Paul asks, and the answers he provides, profoundly confront the doubts we can have about the nature of God’s love.

1. If God is for us, who is against us? [Romans 8:31]

If someone has 100 million dollars, it does not matter to them if the bottle of water at the grocery store is $1.69 or $1.39 because the 100 million is significantly greater than the cost of the water. If something could separate you from God, that thing would be God. But because no one or nothing is greater than God, if God is for you, what does it matter if other things are against you?

2. He did not even spare his own Son but offered him up for us all. How will he not also with him grant us everything? [Romans 8:32]

If we ever worry that we have exhausted God’s mercy, we should just remember that He has already given His best. Everything else is nothing compared to his Son, and He offered Him for us, so how will He withhold other things from us? The Father did not withhold the Son from you and He will not withhold His blessings from you.

3. Who can bring an accusation against God’s elect? God is the one who justifies. [Romans 8:33]

The Scripture teaches that Satan continually accuses those who belong to Christ (Revelation 12:10). You have heard the insults. “If you really loved God, you would not struggle with this.” “There is no way God can forgive you for what you have done.” “Do you really think God loves you?” But, the voice of our enemy is silenced by the loud and powerful voice of Jesus. God’s declaration over us silences Satan’s accusation against us. God is the One who justifies, and He has declared us holy and right.

New Study Suggests People Who Seek to Be Close With God View the Bible More Literally

Sociologists have long suggested that Christian women are more religious than men, but Blake Victor Kent wondered if this discrepancy has something to do with gender differences and intimacy.A former pastor who grew up in the evangelical church, Kent took interest in how gender roles were articulated abstractly but then lived out differently. He saw a disconnect. For example, he noticed that some evangelicals draw firm theological boundaries around formal leadership but then allow women to lead informally all the time.During graduate school, some prominent research on gender caught Kent’s eye and made him wonder if sociologists were missing part of the story. A study by John Hoffmann and John Bartkowski found that women are more likely than men to view the Bible as the literal Word of God. The authors viewed this result as a comment on female social standing in the church, a…See More
