I consider myself to be Christian most of the time but there are issues.
Quote:God created the entire Universe from NOTHING, as he only is ternal, and so can you do that, or can science explain how that the matter and energy that can never be destroyed/created really came forth from nothing then?
Quote:And God gave to manking free will, so any and all failure would be due to our choices, and not to do with God...
Job. One could also argue storms and make the general arguments about the existence of evil.
Quote:His ONLY plan has always been to have the sin of all of mankind dealt with, as that was provided for us in the death of the Son of God jesus Himself...
Quote:God will one day judge all evil and sin, so we all shoiudl be glad that Hitler and jack the ripper did not jsut get away with their crines period.
Hitler killed himself watching his empire fall around him in paranoia and despair. He was not officially tried but it is not like he just went off either.
Quote:The resurrection of jesus is perhaps the single most attested to nd documented event of the historical past, for what cause a band of misfits become bold enough to stand up to the might of Rome, unless they actually believed that they had seen the risen Jesus?
Is it? Part of the issue is much of the evidence for the Bible is the Bible. So if one accepts it as true than they are good with it. From an academic verification of any given event outside sources would be better.
They may exist but I am not aware of them.
Quote:And why did a fervent enemy of Jesus, Saul of tarsus become his greatest follower overnight? n of being smart enough, its being willing to look at all ofthe facts in an honest and objective manner!
There are several historians who validated the existence of Jesus, that he was tried and executed by Pontius Pilte...
The things about the resurrection are: Where is His body, if all of the Apostles knew it was just a lie/myth, NONE cracked and give it up? And why have women has being the first eyewitnesses to that event, as they meant little as testimonies at that time, and again, why did paul change and die for sake of Jesus?
