I have lots of spiritual questions that I like to ponder. These are not salvation issues, merely musings of my mind.
In John 3:16, which reads in the King James Version, "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
Although I know this verse, it brings several questions to my mind, like what does "begotten" mean? I looked it up: the phrase "only begotten" is translated from the Greek word monogenes. This word is variously translated into English as "only”, "one and only”, and "only begotten”.
So what does monogenes mean? According to the Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament definition, it means “pertaining to being the only one of its kind or class, unique in kind."
Where did God come from? How can you even wrap your mind around the concept of a Being that always was and is and never goes away?
Did God look around heaven and think that it was missing something, like angels, and then he created legions of them? “Alright,” God said, “These angels need management.” God looked at Jesus, who said, “Not me!”
Was there an angel who is now in the witness protection program who turned State’s Evidence on Lucifer and the rest of the now "Enemies of the State" are on Death Row?
Does God control everything? If so, to what level of detail does He control it? The crease in my pants happened when I sat down. Does God control that? Be careful with the answer because you will be defining the limits of your God. Cool, eh?
This is the kind of entertainment that I create for myself.
