I think it's important to ask God questions, he is our Father & guide. If you need answers, who better to go to than God? Remember he gave us free will, that means our mind will question things, he knows this & expects us to ask when we don't understand :)

I think it depends on the attitude we have when we question and I doubt there was ever a person who never questioned God at one time or another. Remember that Abraham questioned God when He said He was going to destroy Sodom and it was a good thing. Moses questioned God when He said He would destroy the Israelites, and it was good. Both Moses and Abraham wanted to stop God's anger toward others and reminded God that He should protect His name. (This can get pretty deep, so I won't go into the rest of it.) But when the Israelites questioned God about the food they had to eat and when they complained about having no water at hand, it was wrong. They had a self centered attitude and questioned what God had promised to do.

I think that it's okay to question things that happen in life. But just because something happens that we don't necessarily like, doesn't mean that it won't come out good in the long run. And sometimes we don't understand things that happen but that's to be expected. We're not supposed to understand everything.

I think you should stop depending on that being, he is not there, and never was.All god is is yet another way to control people's actions, and even thoughts. There has never been any proof of any god's existance, nor any deeds done by said god. If there was a god, you'd think he/she would have done something, anything, by now that was proof it existed
