Subject: Got Questions Critique– What I thought
Hello, my name is Joe and I hope you are doing well. I read through your website regarding criticism toward the ministry Got Questions. I love how you challenged the website very thoroughly, with much scriptural support and many details. I myself have even let the ministry know something is not right with how they answer questions. Their spin-off site, Compelling Truth, is much better, but for some reason, Got Questions seems to be out to push an impersonal agenda. I believe the organization purposely hoards very valuable theological information and spits it out in bits and pieces, presenting it intertwined with subjective ideas, rather than actually informing and educating the public on what the Bible says.
The website also contradicts itself many times. For example, the ministry is fixated on 4 point Calvinism, but a few of the articles say both Calvinism and Arminianism fail because they attempt to pinpoint the Will of an infinite being. They also put a heavy emphasis on having a strong, personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, yet severely fail to show even a slight example on how to speak to people like they’re people. Something is seriously wrong with the ministry of Got Questions. It’s an agenda, not a ministry. Their goal is to push their beliefs, not equip people with the tools and resources needed to go out and about bringing others into Christ’s church.
Keep up the good work and I hope to hear a response of some sort. Have a good day,

Either a spiritual work is from God or it isn’t. There is no in between. The Lord either prepares, equips, and sends chosen vessels to minister the truth, or men take it upon themselves to minister, walking in self-will and their own understanding. Such ministers may have impressive morals and show much knowledge, but they don’t have a ministry from the Lord Jesus Christ that liberates captives of sin and brings men into submission to God.
Got Questions is a ministry of men. You say: “Their goal is to push their beliefs, not equip people with the tools and resources needed to go out and about bringing others into Christ’s church.”
You’re right, Joe, and you put it well. Now going on in the perception and definition the Lord has given us, how can tares be expected to produce the fruit of wheat? Are those of the synagogue of Satan the Lord’s simply because they take upon themselves His Name, calling themselves Jews and presuming to do His work? How can they bring others into the Church of Jesus Christ when they aren’t part of His Body?
Shall we judge them after their appearance and not according to spiritual essence made known to us by the Spirit of the Lord and His grace?
“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light” (2 Corinthians 11:13-14 KJV).
Read The Church.
