The Unanswerable Question (8 of 13)
Bailey Smith
Hebrews 2:3

Let me ask you a question that you will not be able to answer. Not even all the demons of hell or the devil himself could answer this one. The cherubim, the seraphim of heaven or any other angel could not answer it either. It is a question to which not even God himself has given us an answer.

In actuality, the Bible poses many questions. In Genesis 3:9, "The Lord God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?" A little later the Bible records Cain asking, "Am I my brother's keeper?" (Gen. 4:9). Job asked, "If a man die, shall he live again?" (14:14). Mark 8:37 records yet another question that ought to be asked. "What shall a man give in exchange for his soul?" The previous verse says, "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul?" Simon Peter asks in 1 Peter 4:17, "What shall be the end of them that obey not the gospel of God?"

Let's examine Hebrews 2:3. Here we find a question for which there is no answer. However, it is a question that we must ask. "How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation?" This is an unanswerable question. In the next few pages we shall take this powerful Scripture, and consider it phrase by phrase to see what message God has for us.

Implication of Impossibility

First of all, please notice the phrase, "How shall," and its implication of impossibility. We see nothing but the utter futility, the hopelessness, and the frust ...
