Top 50 Questions Christians Can’t Answer... or Can They?

by Quinton Figueroa on March 20th, 2010

I'm right with the atheists in that most Christians are pretty stupid. But I'm not with them in all the other BS they like to pull with the Bible being 100% false, God not existing, there being no afterlife and on and on. There is so much to be said about all this so let's just jump right in. These questions were taken from another website.

  1. If God is omnipotent (all-powerful), why did he take six days to create everything? Why not speak everything into existence all at once?

    Let's start things off right. What word is used for God during this 6 day creation? Perhaps one should first learn the terms used and then re-think what is really going on here. There are multiple Hebrew words used for God throughout the Bible. Why?

  2. Why won’t God heal amputees?

    Who's to say healing them is the right thing? Do you know how they became that way? Do you know the lessons they need to struggle through to grow? Growth comes through adversity. You grow through challenges.

  3. If God is so perfect, then why did he create something so imperfect allowing pain, suffering and daily atrocities?

    Same as above

  4. Why did the little old lady that God healed one Sunday need her walker to get around again next Sunday? Was she only temporarily worthy of a healing?

    Same as above

  5. How did Noah fit the millions and millions of species on this planet into his ark?

    It's a metaphor. It's a story.

  6. If Noah did fit all of these species on the ark for forty days and forty nights, how did the penguins make it from Mt. Ararat to the Antarctic? How did the koala bears make it to Australia with no eucalyptus to eat along the way?

    It's a story. What is the message being told?

  7. Why do innocent children have to suffer with terminal diseases such as cancer? What part of ‘God’s plan’ is this exactly?

    Here we go again, this point has already been asked a few times. Changing the clothes of a question doesn't make it any different. Perhaps it would be a bit more "scientific" to simplify the list.

  8. How is it that the bible explains the earth to be 6,000 to 8,000 years old when we know that dinosaur bones are at least 65 million years old? The ‘missing link’ fossil ‘Ida’ found recently is estimated to be at least 47 million years old.

    The Bible doesn't say this - Welfare Christians do.

  9. Why can’t the all-powerful God not forgive someone of their sins after they die? Example: A christian man that is seemingly on God’s good list makes a stupid decision and decides to drink a little too much at the fish fry. On his way home he crashes into a mini-van killing a mother and her two children and himself. This man led a very faithful life and made one stupid, yet grave mistake. If this man did not ask for forgiveness of his sins before the electrical activity in his brain ceased, then God will judge him and send him to hell to burn for eternity.

    This is exactly right and this is what the Bible teaches. Most Christians have this concept wrong.

  10. God wants everyone to worship and follow him and if they don’t, they burn in hell for all eternity. What does this type of attitude say about his character? By definition, he would be described as a tyrant.

    Many of the Gods in the Bible (Jehovah, Elohim) are not THE universal God. Therefore, these are simply people, or LORDs, not God. Uh, oh...

  11. If Jesus died on the cross and spent three days in hell to pay for the sins of the world, then why would we have to go to hell ourselves and pay for them again? God is then, in essence, being paid for our sins twice. With that said, was Jesus’ sacrifice not worthy enough? If that is the case, why should we care that he died for our sins if his sacrifice means nothing at all?

    Perhaps one should first ask what hell is really talking about.

  12. If God wants us all to follow and worship him, why didn’t he create us as such? *Your expected answer will be addressed in the next question.

    This is all religious crap, it has nothing to do with God or the Bible.

  13. What good is it for us to have free will if the intention is for us to not use it? Sure, we can use our free will, but we will burn in hell for eternity if we do. Russian roulette, anybody? It sounds like a set-up to me.

    Um, no you won't. The Bible never says this either. Read the freaking book. And don't just surface-read it. Study it.

  14. In the story of Sodom and Gomorrah, why would God kill Lot’s wife, Sarah, by turning her into a pillar of salt for simply looking in the wrong direction? *Warning of impending sarcasm.* God is a merciful God, right.

    Again, which God is this really talking about? What Hebrew word is being used for "God" in this story? The Gods of the Bible are almost never the universal principle. It's usually a person or group of people.

  15. What purpose does hell serve? If it is punishment for sinful actions, shouldn’t it be used for correctional purposes? Seeing as though you burn forever, you will never get out of hell to show that you have learned your lesson. Would it make since to live a faithful Christian life glorifying the Lord and to accidentally sin by saying a curse word the instant you smash your car into the back of a tractor-trailer, thereby being condemned to burn in hell forever?

    I was unaware this is what Hell was. I don't see such a description in the Bible. Once again, fooled by the Welfare Christians. And of course Hell is to help you become better.

  16. We know that we feel physical feelings through electrical impulses that send information to our brains through our nervous system. Once we die, we no longer feel pain due to the lack of a physical nervous system and, oh yeah, a brain. How could we ‘feel’ the excruciating flames of hell for eternity? Does God make you feel this torment for all eternity out of pure malice because you wouldn’t worship him?

    I mean cmon. This is coming from a scientific person too. If your spirit was placed in a body that can experience electrical currents can it not be placed into another body? Does it need a physical body at all to experience such things? Read a book.

  17. If God is omnipotent, why does he not just show himself to all of us, all at once, thereby ending this game of free will and temptation?

    Why should he? Maybe he only shows himself to people who live by universal law.

  18. If God is perfect and his creations perfect, why did he fail several times? He had to impose suffering upon the human race because Adam and Eve defied him by eating of the fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Failed! He had to flood the planet 1,600 years later wiping out all but eight humans. Failure! He had to confuse human language after Nimrod and the Tower of Babel incident so that they could not effectively communicate with each other. Failure! How is this a track record of a perfect being?

    Once again, the God of the Bible is almost NEVER THE God.

  19. If, in the beginning, there was only God and he created everything, why would he create angels that had the propensity to defy him? This very fallacy led to Lucifer challenging his authority because he desired to share the same power as God. This led to the rise, or fall depending on how you look at it, of Satan, the most notorious enemy of God and his followers. Failed, again!

    I really can't even approach questions like this. The questions are totally re-iterations of what Welfare Christians say and have no foundation Biblically or even rationally.

  20. Why would you trust ‘God’s plan’ given his track record of many failures?

    Um, yeah. Once again, what is that Hebrew word used for God again? I'm familiar with Elohim and Jehovah, but not quite sure about what this God word means...

  21. A disciple of Christ, Thomas, was a skeptic. He walked with Jesus during his time on earth and physically witnessed with his own eyes certain miracles performed by him such as raising Lazarus from the dead and so forth. However, after the crucifixion, Jesus supposedly rose three days later. Thomas did not believe it was truly him despite being told, prior to the incident by Jesus, that he would rise again in three days. Thomas required physical proof. Jesus allowed him to touch him and feel the wounds in his body to offer proof. Why doesn’t god extend the same proof to humans alive today? Those that doubt his existence are no different than Thomas, requiring physical proof and he was a disciple of Jesus himself. If Thomas had been born one generation later, or even living today, he would have burned in hell for all eternity because he would not believe for the lack of physical proof. Paul was born after the death and ascension of Christ. Throughout his life, he did not believe that Jesus was the son of God and even went out of his way to persecute Christians thinking that their religion was a dangerous belief system to practice. Lo and behold a flash of light came out of the sky and Jesus Christ himself appeared to Paul explaining to him that he is actually the one true god. Jesus told him that he was persecuting the followers of the only true faith. From that point on, Paul was a converted Christian. Again, if God was willing to go out of his way to physically prove to Paul that he actually exists, why is this not done today? Why isn’t God willing to show those that doubt today the same degree of physical proof? Why should we be any different than Thomas and Paul?
  22. Christians argue evolution by asking why there aren’t any half-ape half-men walking around today, right? Why don’t we see giants, fiery talking serpents, talking donkeys and many other mythical creatures that are described in the Bible?

    Maybe there were, maybe there weren't. It's not really a big deal. What is a big deal is the story.

  23. If we are to only have sex for the purpose of pro-creation, and to do so outside of the scope of pro-creation is sinful, then why would God create us with an over abundance of nerve endings in our reproductive organs making sex extremely pleasurable? It sounds like yet another set-up.

    Perhaps some setups are to be overcome?

  24. Why do Christians share the same statistical rate of divorce as everyone else? “What God hath made, let no man put asunder.” How could Christian marriages fail if they are sanctified by God? Hmmmm…. interesting.

    Because most Christians are phony Christians. I call them Welfare Christians.

  25. In the book of Luke chapter 19 verse 27, Jesus says, “But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.” This seems pretty clear that Jesus would have Christians kill all non-believers. How do you explain this?

    I use my head for once and understand the message.

  26. If God created everything, why did he create AIDS, influenza, ebola, ecoli and so on and so on? These, as viruses, are living things. You definitely can not use the free will card for this one. Is this another part of ‘God’s plan’?

    Why do parent's children do evil things? Is this question some kind of a joke?

  27. 27 – How can God answer a prayer giving a working-class man in the United States a raise at his place of employment so that he can move his family into a larger house, but he does not answer the prayers to stop the starvation and disease of millions upon millions of children around the world? This must be another infinitely wise part of ‘God’s plan’.

    I'm not sure if you've realized it or not, but life is a class to learn lessons. It's not supposed to be fun or easy. You have to work to make it that way. There's nothing wrong with a little pain and strife. If you want easy leave the material world.

  28. If God’s word is supposed to be the accurate word of God himself, how are we supposed to trust it enough to model our lives after it 100% when hundreds of books were excluded from the original text throughout so many translations and revisions in history?

    Truth is truth, it doesn't matter where it comes from. If the Bible says something that is true why would you discard it simply because of the source?

  29. Why is there no evidence of any of the miracles performed by God? None whatsoever.

    What would evidence look like?

  30. If God and Jesus are the same, having the same mind, knowledge and power, then why would Jesus beg himself in the garden of Gethsemane, to spare himself from having to be crucified? Furthermore, why would Jesus ask himself why he has forsaken himself by allowing himself to be crucified?

    They're not the same.

  31. If you believe that your eternal life is more important than your physical life and you believe that all children are innocent in the eyes of God, why not kill your children so they are guaranteed to go to heaven? You can’t tell me that it is because killing is a sin. First of all, you could repent thereafter and be forgiven. Secondly, if you would sacrifice your life for your child who is about to be hit by a train, and you believe your eternal life is more important than this life, then it would stand to reason that you should kill your children to ensure their entrance into heaven before they are old enough to be held accountable for being a creature of sin, right?

    You don't learn your lessons by avoiding them. Most Christians obviously have this wrong.

  32. If you do believe that children are innocent in the eyes of God, wouldn’t it be reasonable to suggest that abortion doctors are winning more souls for Christ than Christian missionaries? Why not bomb a pre-school? That would surely win a lot of souls for Christ.

    The better question would be why are they entering the physical to being with?

  33. If you do not believe that children are innocent in the eyes of God, wouldn’t it be fair to suggest that God is a monster? Do you see the conundrum here?

    Who comes up with these questions?

  34. It is a common belief among Christians that the only unforgivable sin is consciously rejecting Christ as Lord and savior. With that said, it is also believed by Christians that those who have never heard of Jesus and the Christian faith, i.e. individuals within an isolated tribe, babies and so forth, have no concept of Christ and can not, therefore, be in the position to consciously reject him. This would allow them entrance into heaven by default. With that said, why would you tell anyone about Christ? Why would you spread the word if that would put them in the position to consciously reject him? If they are already going to heaven due to their ignorance of the word of God, why not just let that be? You would, in effect, be losing more souls to Satan by spreading the word. You might want to rethink that whole “fishers of men” thing.

    Hmmm, or you can just think it through and figure out that the phony Christians preaching this obviously have it wrong.

  35. Imagine that I had the power and ability to feed millions and end all suffering. Now, imagine that I simply chose not to do so because these millions of people that are suffering did not like me. You would probably like me even less then, right? Then why does God get a ‘get out of jail free card’? Wait a minute, ‘God’s plan,’ right?

    Well, if you fed all the starving people they would now live a life of luxury and vice, similar to that of the overweight, stubborn, "godless" Americans. Sounds like a great solution...

  36. Why are more atrocities committed in the name of God than anything else?

    Because most religious people do what they're told.

  37. The bible states that it is easier for a camel to fit through the eye of a needle than it is for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. If it is fairly impossible for the rich to go to heaven then why are there wealthy Christians? Why wouldn’t these rich Christians give up all of their wealth to make it easier for them to enter the kingdom of heaven?

    Maybe because it's a lesson and not a literal truth.

  38. Building upon the previous question, if it is almost impossible for the rich to enter the kingdom of heaven, then why would God create heaven as having pearly gates, streets of gold and many mansions? It sounds like he wants us to be poor in life so that we will want to be rich in the afterlife, maybe? Does this make any real sense?

    I was unaware Heaven had pearly gates.

  39. If God is perfect then his creations should be perfect, right? Then that would mean that the earth is a perfect creation. Then why would God have to create another perfect place, heaven, and use it to entice us to believe in him? What kind of assurance do we have that heaven would be any better than his other ‘perfect’ creation, earth?

    I'm going to stop answering these questions now.

  40. God allowed Jesus to be tempted as a human by Satan in the wilderness of the desert. Again, if God and Jesus are the same entity, then what kind of sense does it make for God to allow himself to be tempted by Satan in the wilderness to see if he would give in to the temptation? In addition to that, if he were all-knowing, he would have already known the outcome and, therefore, could have avoided the whole thing all together.
  41. If heaven is to be a place free of sadness, pain and suffering, then how can you be happy in heaven knowing that the vast majority of humankind is painfully burning for eternity, especially when some of them may be your loved ones?
  42. Seeing as though everything we, including Christians, enjoy in the modern world is a product of science, why do Christians so fervently deny factual scientific evidence that disproves so many aspects of the bible and their religion as a whole?
  43. If Christianity is the only true religion, then why do practitioners of all other religions feel fulfilled in their faith and achieve the same desired results as Christians?
  44. If God created everything, then why did he create the tree of knowledge of good and evil and put it right in the middle of the garden of Eden for Eve to eat of it’s fruit if he didn’t want her to? Furthermore, why did God create the serpent that tempted Eve? Uh-oh, it sounds like another possible set-up.
  45. In the beginning God created Adam and Eve, right? Then Adam and Eve had Cain and Abel. What happens next? How did the species propagate itself? Incest is genetically detrimental to offspring. It is also seen as being terribly immoral among the majority of people alive today, including Christians. There was either some incest going on or God created more people from scratch and we weren’t told about it. The same scenario applies to the flood incident. Sure, Noah’s three sons had wives, but that would still mean that, out of the eight remaining individuals on the planet, there is only a 50% variation of genetic code. Mathematically, inbreeding was sure to be necessary to replenish the earth.
  46. Why does God allow things to happen among his followers that he has already deemed to be sinful, i.e. incest example above, “thou shalt not kill” and so forth, and it is alright as long as it is done in his name? Remember, more deaths have occurred in history in God’s name.
  47. How did Adam live to 930, Seth 912 and Methuselah 969 years old when anthropological evidence show that we have progressively increased our longevity throughout history? If they did live that long back then, this concept would be reversed and our longevity should have been decreasing throughout history, right? That would mean that people 500 years ago should have lived to at least 200 years old. Why do we not find evidence of this throughout written historical birth and death records as well as archaeological and anthropological evidence?
  48. God has killed more people than Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Sadam Hussein, Milosavic and Jim Jones combined. Why would you not follow them instead of God? Based on this standard, these monsters are compassionate compared to God.
  49. Why is it that when a Christian is faced with questions that have huge negative implications towards the logic of their faith, they conveniently say that it is in God’s plan? Judging by the above mentioned failures, God’s plan does not seem to be a very good one.
    Last, but not least……..
  50. Why would God give us the capability of logic and reason and expect us not to use it when it comes to belief in him and his word?

It's almost scary that the supposed "smart" people in our society, atheists, are stumped by these types of questions. I thought they were supposed to be the innovators and thinkers of our time. So much for that.

REPuckett: Laughable and vain attempt.

You failed to answer ANY of these questions. I was expecting a challenge. Not only did I not receive a challenge, but I got someone with a serious lack of knowledge of the christian religion and the bible as a whole. Just remember, just because there is an answer, it doesn't mean that it is a correct one.

Candy Smith: No he did not fail to answer
@REPuckett (view comment)

No he did not fail to answer most of the questions! A Good portion of the questions are just flat out stupid.

Aaron: really?

Man, I am a Christian and I thought your answers were crazy. And as a seminary student, if you believe the different hebrew words for God signify different gods then you are not christian and do not understand monotheism. I appreciate the heart in it but there are some MAJOR theological issues with the way you answer here.

Quinton Figueroa: Wait a minute. By believing
@Aaron (view comment)

Wait a minute. By believing that the different Hebrew words for God signify different gods means you can't be a Christian? These words are very specific and clear that they are talking about different entities when they are used. The Genesis 1 creation is clearly different than the Genesis 2 creation and Elohim and Yahweh are both used appropriately. How could El, Elohim, Eloha, Yahweh and all the other unique Hebrew words later translated as God and LORD be even close to the same thing? These different words clearly mean different things when looked at from a contextual, Strongs Concordance and even logical point of view. Even the King James Bible translates Elohim as God and Yahweh as LORD God. Surely, there is a reason on why these words appear differently. LORD God is not the same as God. Yes, they could be synonyms, but in the context of the Bible the majority of cases are always for a specific reason. You might think it doesn't matter, but to the authors of the Bible it mattered greatly. Like I've said, it's a big topic and most people aren't even remotely close to being prepared to undertake such a study, hence their laughable attempts at answering the many questions presented by atheists and other religions.

So I kindly turn it around and say you're not a Christian but rather a Welfare Christian that likes freebies just like a Socialist or Communist likes their freebies. Why do any thinking when the Church can do that for you? Why save yourself when Jesus can do that for you? Sounds like quite a deal, except for the fact that Socialism has never worked in the past and it isn't working now. There's a reason it's called DOGma.

DonJ: Questions Christians can't answer

The author of this clearly can't answer them either. Dismissing the question or pretending that there is no issue is just a tactic, not an answer. Best I could figure is the guy took the attitude "if you have to ask you won't understand the answer."

YourNameHere: Can't You Do Any Better Than This?

Because your framing of the questions indicate a very limited understanding - but a great deal of misinformation - I'm only going to answer only 2 of your misguided points.

1)If God created everything, why did he create AIDS, influenza, ebola, ecoli and so on and so on? These, as viruses, are living things. You definitely can not use the free will card for this one. Is this another part of ‘God’s plan’?

RESPONSE: We live in a world that has been corrupted - beginning when Adam forfeited his dominion over earth to Satan. God had created a world free of contamination and disorder. Disease, mutations and death are all results of contaminations that came into play through man's disobedience to God. God created the air. Man comes along and pollutes it by adding chemicals that were not intended by God to be in the air. So, now the air is contaminated. Is that GOD'S fault?

2) What purpose does hell serve? If it is punishment for sinful actions, shouldn’t it be used for correctional purposes? Seeing as though you burn forever, you will never get out of hell to show that you have learned your lesson. Would it make since to live a faithful Christian life glorifying the Lord and to accidentally sin by saying a curse word the instant you smash your car into the back of a tractor-trailer, thereby being condemned to burn in hell forever?

RESPONSE: I'd like to know where you get your knowledge of Christianity from - because your premise is total nonsense. If a person surrenders himself to Jesus Christ's authority, and receives His free gift of salvation - he will NOT be condemned. But those who refuse to come to Jesus - the ONLY source for salvation - they have only themselves to blame for violating the Holy Laws of God. Jesus died in your place - but to in order to be saved, you must RECEIVE His gift of salvation. It won't apply to you, unless you trust Him. Example: Your apartment building is on fire. The fire department arrives. You yell, SAVE ME!". They tell you to jump into their waiting net - three stories below you . . . but you REFUSE! The fire department yells up to you, "Jump into our net - It's the ONLY way!". But you yell back - "What kind of loving Fire Department would make only ONE WAY for me to be saved? In fact - what kind of Fire Department would allow my building to be on fire in the FIRST place??? So, you stay inside your apartment - defiant to the end. You die in the fire. Did the Fire Department FORCE you to die? Did GOD? No, you did it to yourself. God's trying to warn you that unless you come to Jesus to be saved - you will die in your sins and spend eternity in Hell. Does that make God a "tyrant? God offered His own SON to be tortured and murdered in YOUR place - so YOU could receive God's ONLY safety net from the penalty of your own violations of His Law. After all Jesus has done for you - you will have no grounds to call God "unfair".

Quinton Figueroa: It's funny because I was
@YourNameHere (view comment)

It's funny because I was actually on your side in this article defending Christianity. However, since you have posted the typical weak Christian response I am now going to turn on you too...

1. First a lesson: Your answer has some truth to it, but it has a clear misunderstanding of the fall. Disease and all that crap doesn't come as a result of man's disobedience to God, it comes about as a result of the material realm and man's distance from God. It's not a bad thing, it's simply a prodigal journey through matter. This realm is built to have polarities and extremes to help us grow. These are the dynamics of third density. Disease, hardships, suffering, etc is all here to help us grow. These are basic parts of the material world that force us to try different things and overcome our earthly passions. They bring us to a higher level as we learn from each one and we become more capable beings which each lesson we learn. How can you attack disease, suffering and pain but yet turn a blind eye to peace, harmony and joy? Why not attack these "good" things also then?

Furthermore, contrary to Welfare Christianity and affirmed through real Biblical study, we don't have one life here. Being blind, having AIDs, being killed and what have you is quite inconsequential in the eternal realm of things. It's like playing a video game with a handicap for the sake of experiencing it that way. You pick up different information with the handicap. It's not bad or good. It is what it is. Once you die you get to play the game all over again with a new character. These "diseases" and "sufferings" are all just different characters for us to try out in the game of life.

2. And now a tip: See, you're doing what all the Christians do when it comes to hard questions. You force your view on people without ever trying to even understand their perspective. Using your religious and Biblical bias has absolutely no bearing on somebody who is coming at it from a non-religious and scientific standpoint. You just sound like a fanatic rambling off a program they heard from their master... not the way to convince somebody your viewpoint. The fear thing doesn't work either. You need to come at it with logic and rationality for these types of people. You took a perfectly legitimate question and sidestepped it with religious dogma. You failed to even come close to remotely answering the question and have furthered the disrespect these people have for Christians. You didn't even try to answer this question. You simply played the same tape most Christians play when faced with hard questions. F-

REPuckett: Why must you insist to continue plagiarizing my content?

I am the original author of this article and you are plagiarizing me. I have already attempted to rectify this issue amicable with you and you have, apparently, declined the amicable route. All I asked was that you provide the original source of the content which is here: http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/2691709/top_50_questions_christ... Please be expecting a cease and desist from my attorney.

Shelly Barclay: Hmmmm. . .

Are you going to post a link back to that man's original article and accredit him as the author of the above questions or are you just going to plagiarize it and give crappy answers? Just because you did not post the article in its entirety doesn't make this any less a case of plagiarism. Remove it or fix your blunder.

"It's almost scary that the supposed "smart" people in our society, atheists, are stumped by these types of questions."

Ah, but at least we are not stumped by copyright laws, as you are. Besides, why would I want to answer questions about BS? That would be like you expecting me to answer questions about fallacies in Harry Potter. It's a waste of time. God doesn't exist. Get over it and learn to respect people's intellectual property.

Quinton Figueroa: You know, I thought long and
@Shelly Barclay (view comment)

You know, I thought long and hard about giving the author credit but after the way he asked me and threatened with legality I decided he was not worth my time.

First of all I didn't even get the content from his site, I got it elsewhere. Sure, he's the author but how was I supposed to know to give him credit and not the site that I originally got these questions from?

Second, coming in and immediately threatening with legal means is elementary and silly. He didn't even mention which article was the one that was plagiarized. He just came in and started saying he was going to take legal means. So being that the original author has the legal means I am waiting to have your "attorney" send me an evil, mean letter to take the content down. I play with these types of threats on a daily basis. I'm not new to the Internet and I'm not new to law. People bluff. They're full of crap. You don't think I can see through this author's lies just like his weak questions?

I have no problem actually linking to the site and would have gladly done so had the original author asked nicely without the threat. But this is the perfect example of why this original post was so bad. The author was already attacking before even trying to understand. I mean cmon, I used to argue when I was in 3rd grade but then I grew up.

I'll let the author post the link in the comments. Fine, go ahead. But will I post the link at the top of the article? Naw, I would much rather get that nasty letter from this fake attorney to force me to do it first since we live in such a law abiding, sensor reality that is so quick to jump to conclusions and get emotional. I mean seriously, God is fake yet this attorney is real? People are so freaking stupid sometimes.

God: I demand that you give credit

You stole this article, and as the one and only God, I demand that you either give credit to the original author, RePuckett, or I shall smite yee!

Quinton Figueroa: Hi God. You obviously don't

Hi God. You obviously don't exist. I have all these cool little books I read in science class that told me Newtonian physics is where it's at so I'm sticking to my guns! I love authority :) Science obviously keeps correcting itself and erasing its mistakes as it progresses, but that's okay, I am fanatically religious in my scientific views. We finally know enough now to prove you don't exist. We are by far the smartest group of humans the world has ever seen. After all, we know so little about history to even know that there were smarter people than us. We're shallow, closed-minded, and highly set in our ways of obeying our universe-city professors. Yay for a life void of purpose and growth!

Damn: I hope your God sends you to

I hope your God sends you to Hell for stealing this article. That is exactly what plagiarism is, stealing.

I have an answer for 25!

I looked in the bible and clearly you need to read a few verses before verse 27 and Jesus was telling a story. So get your facts straight Byotch. And kiss my lovely ass.

Fucks & kisses,

G: Wow. I have my first headache

Wow. I have my first headache ever after reading all of your pathetic answers Quinton. Thanks bud.

Asha: This is pathetic

I love watching theists run around, trying to defend their God despite the lack of evidence. It's actually really funny. They are so dumb, believing in fairy tales, and are too arrogant to listen to evidence. The bible CONTRACTS itself so many times, it's not even funny. Also, all of your articles (and your plagiarized articles) are extremely biased (by that, I mean when they shouldn't be), and utter nonsense.

Scooter: God

OK - let's be clear here. When you say, "I'm right with the atheists in that most Christians are pretty stupid" - you have immediately shown your own stupidity.

- You don't know 'most' Christians-
- You've never spoken to 'most' Christians
- You haven't a clue about what 'most' Christians think on the issues you've listed.

. . . So why should I even bother to engage such a fool if you do not want to have an intelligent conversation about God?

Such stupidity on your part. Aghhhhhhh!

Sylvain Poirier: Other list of hard questions

As a former evangelical christian I am very familiar with the flaws of Christianity and many of the real questions that are never answered. So I just wrote a page listing many questions I know to be among the biggest challenges. At the bottom I included a comment on the 2 main "answers" of the present article, why I found them indefensible.

Candy Smith: 1.) Because speaking and

1.) Because speaking and making everything happen in a couple of seconds is lame, plus there wouldn't be a whole lot to write about in The Bible.

Candy Smith: Questions Christians can't answer or can they

Why can’t the all-powerful God not forgive someone of their sins after they die?
Example: A christian man that is seemingly on God’s good list makes a stupid decision and decides to drink a little too much at the fish fry. On his way home he crashes into a mini-van killing a mother and her two children and himself. This man led a very faithful life and made one stupid, yet grave mistake. If this man did not ask for forgiveness of his sins before the electrical activity in his brain ceased, then God will judge him and send him to hell to burn for eternity.

This is exactly right and this is what the Bible teaches. Most Christians have this concept wrong.

Raymond Petra: Answer for question No.1 :)

Because God love us. He prepared everything for us, so Humans can live a comfortable life in Earth. God's time and our time is different.

Raymond Petra: For question No.2

There is so many testimony about healing amputees from God through Priests, go check it.

Raymond Petra: Answer for quetion No.3

God never give that to us, the one who's giving that is Satan, all of that happened, is because of Sin, not God.

Raymond Petra: Answer for quetion No.3

God makes everythings perfect, everything that was Imperfect was happened when human disobey God's order, Ex. When Eve and Adam ate the fruit from the tree that was on the middle of Eden garden.

Raymond Petra: Question No.4

I didn't found that on the Bible.

Raymond Petra: Question No.5

It is God's desire. Well what do you think? It's God. God is Almighty and He's beyond our human thinking. He can do anything that was impossible to Human.

Raymond Petra: Question No.6

It did not said how many time it took on Bible. God is Almighty, He can do anything that was impossible to humans.

House of Cards: God exist whether you like it or not

The general population of the world today are either atheists or humanists which are both I feel quite the same with coined with different view points but the fact is God does exist he does not need me to prove he does because he does! but I feel the conviction to so I will.
The first I would like to clarify is forgiveness.
Forgiveness has been debased and messed up to the general public till it is a subject of puns and jokes.
The Bible says that forgiveness of God is acquired through personal conviction and the acceptance of the need of a saviour. The intentioned sin, sins that you intentional plan to do and undertake them are abominable before the Lord, but even then if the individual finds God and sincerely asks for forgiveness then he is a new creation, he is forgiven. An absurd question like why a parent can't kill a child on the bases that they are innocent and thus would got to heaven and the parent can then ask for forgiveness is an absurd twisted question.The Bible says plainly in Exodus that THOU SHALT NOT KILL. A true Christian would be abhorred by them. The taking of the human life is a sin that shows degraded mentality of an individual. Christ says that to even be angry against a person and to keep the anger inside is like to kill. It clearly shows God's abhorrence for the sin murder.

Secondly the question that why did God spend six days creating everything is fortuitous. When you buy a box of chocolate it is your ability to eat all of it in a day, but it doesn't necessarily mean you will. So why is that so different from God, he had the power to do it in a second but he chose to do it in a six day span! It is also an example to us, we are to take time in doing things not to rush into them taking time to contemplate and execute. It is not to say God needed time to think that is not at all what I am saying for He knows all things. What I am saying is it is an example for us, we of mortal flesh to exercise patience in all our endeavours.

God is a Failure?
No and through all eternity he is not a Failure, but man is the failure. In the beginning in Eden man was the failure. The Lord God always puts before man the way of Life and Death, of Good and Evil he forces not man but gives him the chance to make his own decisions he is a perfect God man is the creation which brought imperfection unto itself. Man when given the chance to obey God chose the devil. FAILURE. In Noah's time God gave man his freedom of will and yet again man chose to sin. Man had given dominion of the world into the Hands of the devil and the devil caused the rampage of sin yet still God gave the men of those times freedom of choice yet they continued to defile the world so God had to destroy the workings of his hands not due to his failure as a creator but man's failure as creature. At the the Tower of Babel God caused different languages as a means of causing man to populate the world as was his command in the Garden of Eden, to give birth and multiple to populate the WHOLE EARTH.

Now of Monotheism or Polytheism
In the beginning in Genesis the Bible says 'Let Us create man in our own image'
I am a protestant Christian, believing in God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. and as such I believe then that they Three yet are One. For in John the Bible says 'In the beginning was the word and the word was with God and the word was God' Here Jesus Christ the Living Word is with God from the beginning. In John 1:14 It says and the word became flesh and dwelt among us' Jesus Christ came to the Earth. To further prove that Jesus Does exist the bible says in John 1:3, 'All things through him was made and without him nothing was made that was made!' Jesus Christ is the Son of God not of maternal birth but of eternal existence. The Holy Spirit is also mentioned in the OLD and NEW TESTAMENT. In Genesis 1 it says 'In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth, and earth was without form and void and the spirit of God was upon the waters' furthermore in Matthew 28: 19 the Bible says 'Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations baptising them in the name of the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit'
So then you would ask if there are Three of the How are they One?
Well the word Elohim as rightly said by a friend in this discussion is of plural meaning firstly signifying more than one or two since the Hebrew Eloah is for two in context to God.
Now a rope is made of tiny other ropes but it doesn't stop the rope from being a rope.
Neither does an egg being made of a shell, a membrane and a yolk stop it from being an egg.
The Trinity work in unison their intention and desires synced. They are the perfect meaning of Unity.

Now to the Cause of Suffering and Pain.
The Lucifer the first archangel of the Lord now the Devil is the main cause of suffering. Now the most usual reaction of blaming the devil for the suffering of the world is usually met the with the sarcastic, blame-game, reception but is is truth.
The Bible says the devil comes to 'Steal, Kill and Destroy'
The Devil has no whatsoever good intention towards man no matter the covering he brings. Yet man turns to blame God for the suffering? we should be blaming ourselves. The bible clearly states that when man ate of the fruit of Good and Evil removed himself from the jurisdiction of God to under the Devil. We due to sinning put ourselves under the Reign of the Evil One. We pushed God out of the picture! Yet he still gives us hope he sent his Son to die for our sins, what manner of LOVE! We forsook him yet he sent Jesus to DIE for our sins. Yet the earth is still not completely removed of this Wicked Fallen Angel he continues to wreck havoc, but the Lord gives us hope. He says he will come again, to take his children home those who bear the Mark of God and the Testimony of Jesus, those who Love the Lord with all their hearts all their soul and all their strength.
So you would say where do there the diseases come from?
The Devil!
Where do the wars come from?
The Devil!

Now of Hell
I am a Protestant Christian, of the churches that came of the Martin Luther Revolution. The Methodist, the Pentecostal, The Presbyterian and all the others.
There is a church called the Seventh-Day Adventist Church and I am a member of this church. We do not believe in an eternal Hell.
The Word of God in Revelation 20 the Bible talks about it.
The wages of sin is death. But God, who alone is immortal, will grant eternal life to His redeemed. Until that day death is an unconscious state for all people. When Christ, who is our life, appears, the resurrected righteous and the living righteous will be glorified and caught up to meet their Lord. The second resurrection, the resurrection of the unrighteous, will take place a thousand years later. (Job 19:25-27; Ps. 146:3, 4; Eccl. 9:5, 6, 10; Dan. 12:2, 13; Isa. 25:8; John 5:28, 29; 11:11-14; Rom. 6:23; 6:16; 1 Cor. 15:51-54; Col. 3:4; 1 Thess. 4:13-17; 1 Tim. 6:15; Rev. 20:1-10.)
If you're really interested in finding out about the true Hell and punishment of the ungodly please read you'll be amazed at the difference between the of biblical Hell, and I dare say this on my own, conjured meaning of Hell

House of Cards: questions?

If you have questions on what I have said please speak I would like to be of service to clarify things to you.
'For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son that who ever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life' John 3:16

Kraaifontein: Thank you

hi guys, Just on a note, i feel that the questions should be answered with the word of God. That is the plumb line we have that we should follow. Heb 4v12. A lot more effort could have been done to answer the questions. They might seem "stupid" but some people actually have an issue with some of these questions and caused people to doubt.

As i said, Christianity has been so subbed divided that many people believe different things. For example i don't agree that there are different gods in Christianity but rather that it is adjectives describing God. Neither do i agree with the fact of no Hell at all. I'm not here to have an doctrinal debate about it. Neither am i here to change anyone point views or maybe change mine because you guys showed me in the word that i am wrong (because the word is truth, and our opinions and doctrine needs to be aligned to the word of God). (2 Tim 3:16)

@house of cards: thank you very much for what u wrote and adding scripture it. God bless you for your time. What the Protestants did was commendable and many of you died for what i believe today. i would like to "kick" you off with Heb 6 nkjv/kjv. Note baptismS. Flowing into Matth 3:11. Hope you enjoy the journey.

All i want to tell you guys is, don't simply believe what anyone tells you, but check in the word. We shouldn't just believe what the pastor, preacher, minister, friendly blogger whoever tells us just because of their position, but because it is accurate to what the Word says.

Thanx for reading.

Grace and peace

Ryan Stepp: I'm an atheist and I'm not

I'm an atheist and I'm not stumped. Because instead of answering the questions, you basically avoid them by saying "god works in mysterious ways". That's not a logical answer.... And if Noah's Ark is only "a story" then what do you think the rest of the bible is?! Thank you! Have a nice day!

Idk : I do know God exists but I don't trust him

I have grown up in a christian family...but I will not say I am christian, not because I don't believe God exists. No I do. I just don't want to put my complete faith in someone I can't understand. I want to be 110% commited rather than a blind follower just accepting a religion thats been shoved down my throat my whole life. Iv'e accepted him in my heart and still talk to him everyday about everything and anything, but I do not completely put my trust in him, and I know christians always say "You can never fully understand God so just put your trust in him" but many christians say that as if it's so easy and as if they themselves completely trust him, when in all honesty if God asked them to give everything they owned to the poor they would hesitate. If you completely trust someone, doubting them should be a foreign expression. Therefore I would like to ask questions in hopes that someone can explain them and help me more fully understand and trust God.

“Whenever our hearts condemn us. For God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything” John 3:20. I have been taught my whole life that God is all knowing. That he knows the future of all of us long before we are even born. So why did he create us?
I know it seems like a really dumb question to ask but, if he loved us then why did he create us to go through all this suffering? If he knew that Adam and Eve were going to fall (I understand that he gave us free will therefore what Adam and Eve did was completely their fault) then why did he create us? If he knew we would sin and turn away from him, that he would have to kill his son which would pain him greatly, that he would have to send us to hell to burn forever, that lucifer would fall... why would he create us. Hell was created for lucifer, but why why didn't God just kill him? Dosen't that mean God knew beforehand about all the suffering we would go through and the sin we would commit so he just let lucifer burn in a pit until we did eventually sin, so he could be set free for a while to torment us? I don't understand why he would ever create us to worship him, I mean he has a whole choir of angels up there worshiping him ALL the time. So why would he need to create us at all? Why would he literally create us even though he KNEW that billions of us would be sent to eternal torment? Why would he let satan have that pleasure? I thought that he hated him more than anything else, so why let him torture us if he 'loves' us even though we sin? Why create us with free will if we really don't have a choice? I understand when the user @YourNameHere made that whole analogy about hell (Just in case you can't be bothered to find the comment: Your apartment building is on fire. The fire department arrives. You yell, SAVE ME!". They tell you to jump into their waiting net - three stories below you . . . but you REFUSE! The fire department yells up to you, "Jump into our net - It's the ONLY way!". But you yell back - "What kind of loving Fire Department would make only ONE WAY for me to be saved? In fact - what kind of Fire Department would allow my building to be on fire in the FIRST place??? So, you stay inside your apartment - defiant to the end. You die in the fire.) I understand that the firemen are represented as 'God', sinners are represented as the person in the burning building, and the fire represents hell so the analogy does make sense a bit, but then if the firemen were all knowing (as god is) wouldn't that mean they know the fires going to happen before it happens? So then in the analogy they would have arrived when you called them rather than before, even though they knew the fire was going to happen and told you to trust them even though they knew what choice you were going to make, and if the fire represents hell that wouldn't it make sense to say that the firemen themselves made the building catch on fire just as God made hell? So in a way your'e asking me to trust the very people that set my building on fire just because they are well respected by many others and they are 'trying' to save me. Thats probably not a good analogy but do you get what I mean? At this moment I've realised I have completely derailed and this is not just 1 question but actually a few.... I'm just gonna let you guys figure out what you want to answer and if you can please do.
Thanks

Franklin: These questions are known by

These questions are known by Christians and pastors collectively and instinctively, but none would admit it.
If only the world new who God is then all the aforementioned questions and more would be answered. There is a reason why Satan is called a deceiver.
