By Joseph C. Ibekwe
We live in an age of flux with values neutralization. Therefore, in this time an age you must question whatever contradicts the written Word of God. Traditions and customs that do not conform to God’s word must be questioned.
Rules and practices that contradict the word of God must be challenged. Laws and policies that negate the Word of God and nature must be confronted.
In society, we must challenge the continued subjugation of women in private and public life including within religious organizations and in the political space.
In the Church, all unwritten rules, customs, and observances that engender discrimination and marginalization must be challenged.
The practice of repatriating all funds from local church branches to the headquarter church, but leaving welfare problems of members to the local branches to resolve, must be challenged.
The practice of ‘many serving at the table and few feeding from the table’ must be questioned.
You must question your salvation. Have you received Jesus as your Lord and savior? You must question your personal relationships with God.
In your community, question the practices and customs that contradict God’s word. Question the lifestyle and utterance of politicians. Don’t take everything on face value. Do some thinking. Demand answers.
Mark this: to question things does not mean to rebel against authority or authority figures. You don’t need to challenge what is right and that conforms to God’s word and to natural law.
You question what contradicts the Word of God and refuse to submit to such.
To question things is not about starting a fight, even though those that resent being questioned could start a fight against you. Maintain your calm poise, but insist that the right things be done.
You must question things. You must be bold about it. If in doubt, seek clarifications.
