What questions should we be asking?

Here's an interesting bit of research. Ed Stetzer reflects on the kind of questions people are asking. The simple conclusion is that the majority of people (in North America) are asking about the meaning and purpose of their lives rather than their eternal destiny. The same is probably true here in the UK.

So, if we are still asking the question, "If you were to die tonight, are you sure you would go to heaven?", we might just be asking the wrong question, or at the very least asking a question that has little or no context for many people's lives.

So what would be a better question? What should we, or could we ask to start a spiritual question that would find a context in most people's lives?

Time to reach for the thinking cap I believe.
