It has been said that “curiosity is the wick in the candle of learning.” Good News Wants to Know… If you could know the absolute and total truth to one question, what question would you ask?
A very interesting question indeed! I think I would ask: “How do I get the most amount of people SAVED in the shortest amount of time? I’m thinking that what lasts eternally is what is really important to focus on today.
Rabbi Joe Vitkus, Senior Rabbi, Temple Aron HaKodesh
Jesus spoke a lot about it; the apostles wrote about it; authors have speculated about it; pastors preach about it; and we who are believers sing about it and know we are going there; however, I would like to know what is heaven really like?

Would love to know with absolute certainty if sharks are actually more afraid of us than we are of them.

I would ask all leaders to tell the truth and be honest to the people they serve.
Chip LaMarca, State Representative, Florida House District 93
As someone who has spent a career attempting to connect messages with willing audiences… I’d love to know the most effective way to be a messenger. And specific to what’s most important, what’s the most effective way for a flawed messenger to reach those who aren’t opening themselves to the word of God? It’s our most important job in this life, and I’d like to know how to do it better.
If I could know the absolute and total truth to one question, I would ask, “What is the one thing that, if I were to know it, would lead to the discovery of the answers to all other important questions?” I don’t think I would want to know the answers automatically. That would remove all mystery and eliminate the joy and journey of learning and discovery. But on the other hand, knowing what leads to discovering the answers would provide an infinite number of paths and questions to pursue.

I’d like to know the truth of the agenda behind our current government’s policies, who is pulling the strings and why they seem to want to destroy the America we’ve been blessed to be part of?

Prime numbers – in their prime, Jordan or LeBron?
Desmond Cook, Multi-Area Director for the South Atlantic Region, Fellowship of Christian Athletes
A fascinating question to me is age-old and has spurred debate among theologians for centuries: where is the line between God’s sovereignty and man’s accountability? I believe in both on separate levels. However, the discussion provokes interesting conversation, especially among those of differing theological positions.
Dolores King-St. George, President, King Communications and GraceNet Radio
A common question I would ask – I have known several dynamic Christians accomplishing so much for the Lord, yet they have passed away by sickness or accidents at a young age. Why Lord?
Don Campion, President, Banyan Air Services, Inc.
What is my wife thinking? 🙂
Doug Sauder, Pastor, Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale
For me the question would be, “What do you want me to do?” I will be content to let God be God with the other unknowns!
The revelation of my purpose in life. That is the one Truth every young person should ask. So many graduates don’t strive to fulfill their goals and dreams until later in life. God answers us when we ask and seek Him first. Walking in Faith leads us to His perfect Will and purpose. Congratulations to all our precious students and may God bless them!!

Who shot JFK?
James ‘JT’ Taylor, Managing Director, Head of Automotive Retail, Truist Securities
What day is Jesus going to return? Ultimately, God knows what is best for us, and so I can say with confidence that it is better that I do not know. What I do know is that He will return and that I want to live every day as if it is the day he will return. Come quickly, Lord Jesus!
Jesse Carroccio, Station Manager, WRMB
The question I’d love the absolute truth about is, “Why is knowing never enough?” All absolute truth is written in the Bible, and yet we humans still question and rely on what we think we know.

What is it really like in heaven? I can only imagine…

Lord, how could you love humanity, knowing some would/will reject you?

I would want to know about the UFO’s.

I am a conspiracy theorist, so of course, the one question I would want to know the absolute truth about is “Who really killed JFK?”
Dr. Mary Drabik, President, South Florida Bible College & Theological Seminary
I have been around more than seven decades, and I still have the same question…what will I be when I grow up? Asked another way, what is God’s specific purpose for my life? I take some small comfort in knowing that Moses was 80 before his true purpose was revealed. I still have time, but I hope the answer comes soon!
Mike McDermott, P.A., Senior Real Estate Specialist, The Keyes Company
The only question I would want to know the absolute answer to would be centered around the Person of Jesus Christ. I believe in the Gospel with all my heart, but at the end of the day, it is my faith. if I could know, if we could know absolutely, then this world would be a completely different place.
Dr. Mike Rozenblum, Genesis Physical Medicine and Chiropractic
There are a lot of questions I would love to ask and know the absolute true answer. However, one question I always wonder when I read this part of scripture is in John 8:1-11. What was Jesus writing on the ground with His finger when He knew the teachers of the law and the Pharisees were using this question as a trap.
Milan Stefanovic, Chief Operations & Personal Lines Officer, Bass Underwriters – Plantation FL

Is earth the only planet in the entire universe that has life on it?
Oksana Horton, Creative Director, Torch & Trumpet Theater Co.
If I could have the absolute and total truth to one question asked, that question would be, on what date will the rapture of the church take place? This is a question that all Christians should want the answer to, so that they could know whether there is a possibility that they would be alive when the rapture of the church occurs and would not have to die a natural death.
O’Neal Dozier, Pastor, The Worldwide Christian Center
My one question would be, what is the one thing that could cure people from cancer without hurting the rest of their body?
Patricia Colangelo, EdS, Lecturer, Professor, Trinity International University – Florida
If I could get the total answer to one question, I would ask: “What is Heaven like?” Most of all because I am going there, because loved ones, friends, and family are going there, and many people I know are already there… And I want to continue to tell people that ‘Jesus is the way to get there’!!!
Coach Rick Andreassen, Founder and President, SAINTS Homeschool P.E. and SAINTS International Sports Ministry
I would like to know the truth of …what lurks in the heart of man/woman?
Romney C. Rogers, Managing Partner, Rogers Morris & Ziegler Llp
The question I would like to ask is this: Is professional wrestling real? OK, really, I would like to know the final answer to the question of why evil needs to exist.
Samuel Lamerson, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Biblical Studies, Knox Theological Seminary
Why do good and bad things happen to all of us throughout life? Is the answer destiny, God’s Will, randomness or… This is a question we all ask ourselves specially when facing challenging times and adversity.
Sandra Muvdi, MBA, President/CEO, Jessica June Children’s Cancer Foundation®
It doesn’t happen often, but I often question why the people that are (or in the past that were) close to me do hurtful things without explanations as to their motivation. I would like to know why and get a better understanding that helps in the forgiving process!
Steve Solomon, Area Director, South Florida CBMC
So many questions come to mind, but one would be, where is the ark of the covenant? There are some theories regarding its location and when it was last seen. However, no one really knows its current whereabouts.
Susie M. Cohen, PhD, Associate Dean, Assistant Professor of Education, Trinity International University – Florida.
The question that I would like absolute truth to is the age-old question of why do bad things happen to good people. We know that we live in a fallen world due to sin and that one day for those who believe in Jesus, we will have no more pain in Heaven. However, when I see people suffer and look around at some of the things that happen in our world today, I can’t help but want to know the answer to this. I look forward to Jesus making this all clear for us one day. For now, we live by faith and trust that God is in control of all things, even when we don’t understand it.
Steve Daigle, Campus Pastor, Calvary Chapel Parkland
