Right questions and right answers

"Am I my brother's keeper?" Gen. 4:9. Obviously it's an important question. But when Cain murdered his brother and asked the question, he was using it to evade the truth, not to find it.

Sometimes questions are asked for the wrong reasons. And sometimes questions are the wrong ones at a particular time. Learning to distinguish between right and wrong questions can be as important as learning the right answer.

For example, asking questions of spiritual healing— spiritual healing in Christian Science—as though it were simply an alternative to material remedies is really getting off to a wrong start. It is impossible to understand Christian Science healing—what it is, how it happens, where it leads, what it requires—if it is approached from a material basis or equated with conventional medicine.
