Top Ten: Things Christians Say When They Mean “I Don’t Know”

10. We can’t know the mind of God.
9. God works in mysterious ways.
8. You need to trust in Him.
7. The Bible is supposed to be read poetically.
6. It must be part of God’s plan.
5. It is not for us to know.
4. Because the Bible says so.
3. I feel it because I let Jesus into my heart.
2. God is in control.
1. You just have to have faith.


  1. I believe those were ten ways of saying "I do know."

    1. "We can't know the mind of God".

      That's quite specifically an admition that not only do we not know, we can't know.

      "God works in mysterious ways"

      If the way is mysterious it obviously implies we are missing information.

      "You need to trust in Him."

      If you knew the facts you would not need to trust.

      "It is not for us to know."

      Clearly states once again that not only do we not know, we can't know.

      Really, do I need to break the rest down? Sorry John Myste, you're just wrong.

    2. Except they're all saying, "I know God is behind it all," when He clearly isn't.

  2. When I don't know, I say, "I don't know. Let's see what it says about that in the Bible."

  3. What does the Bible say about marrying a 12 year old?
