Should you be able to ask questions during bible study?


I ask this question because last Wednesday one of my church members asked the preacher a very interesting question during bible study. However, the preacher didn't answer the man's question. The only thing the preacher said, "Brother, let me finish my bible study." My church member got a upset and walk out of bible study. Not to mention, he wasn't at church on Sunday. So was the preacher wrong for cutting him off

    That, and ministers are imperfect people just like everyone else. He may have responded poorly in the moment, and then had no opportunity to correct the situation within the group setting because the other gentleman responded in anger and walked out.

    Serenity: How else can 1 learn unless "man" tell him? Acts 8:31! Our job: "plant seed (WORD), but ONLY GOD gives increase." I Cor 3:6! Jn6:44;65!

    Hopefully u guys teach "AFTER THE CROSS" or after The Day of Pentecost; otherwise, Galatians 1:6-9!

    personally I get offended if no one asks questions as that means they are either are not interested or are foolish enough to believe what anyone teaches without checking it out.

    yes the hireling cannot admit they do not have the answers. the corrct response is "i do not know but I will research it and get back to you" then there is no class confusion

    a real bible study HAS NO PREACHING. But I understand the hirelings in the churches have to show they are in control and make sure no one finds truths that they refuse to accept

    What did Jesus do? Say "Hold it (Scribes & Pharisees) until I finish." NO! He welcomed their questions to "prove" (w/HIS WORD) He was GOD!

    Shouldn't we "prove" (II Tim 3:16) w/WORD our beliefs? So says Scripture & we "claim Christianity?"

    Good answer! But I don't agree with you. Bible study is to ask questions and engaged in the coversation! To me the preacher was wrong

    "..there is a correct way to address the problem." HERE IT IS! Matt 18:15-17!

    EVERYTHING "that pertains to life" is IN SCRIPTURE (II Pet 1:3)!

    Give WORD & "YOU" will NEVER be wrong (Num 23:19)!

    Right Link! If blvr perceives "right" they don't STUDY (Search the Scriptures) "to see if these thgs are so." (Acts 17:11) rather "run" when Scripture says "STAND" on your belief & "PROVE" w/WORD;otherwise, He'll be "ashamed of u!" Unblvr told T
