The evidence for God has never been weaker. Science has completely overshadowed religion. What evidence do you have that God exists? And personal spiritual experiences don’t count.! It needs to be tangible.
I don’t know if the meme is still applicable but as of 2014, it was still illegal for atheists to run for public office in 7 states. It is so disgraceful that in this day and age you still need to believe in a magic being above to hold public office.
If 2 Timothy 3:16-17 states that “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God[a] may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”, then all of the Bible must be taken as accurate. The creation account and the flood account now need to be taken literally. Why? 1 Corinthians 15:45 states that “So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being; the last Adam, a life-giving spirit.” If Jesus is the last Adam, then there would have to be a first literal Adam. He wouldn’t have sacrificed his life for a parable! Also, 2 Peter 2:5 states that “if he did not spare the ancient world when he brought the flood on its ungodly people, but protected Noah, a preacher of righteousness, and seven others;”. This would indicate that there was a literal Noah. Therefore, all of the Genesis accounts should be taken literally, and it is patently obvious to any thinking human being that science does not convolve with Biblical historicity. God was incorrect and therefore not inerrant. Consequently, the Bible is incorrect about these instances and therefore Judeo-Christian God does not exist, since he inspired all of this nonsense. What say you to this logic? I am speaking to the Judeo-Christian’s now.
If the Judeo-Christian Islamic God is omniscient, then there can be no free will. If he knows exactly how the future will play out, free will cannot exist. If God knows the next sentence you will utter, then everything is predestined. If this is the case, then how can we be mad with anyone when they do something that disappoints us? It was God’s will that the incident occurred. Free will and godly omniscience are incompatible.
“If you don’t believe in the Christian God, there’s nothing to inhibit you from committing a crime. You can be a moral monster! Nothing stops you from committing heinous acts.” I hate it every time I hear this! Atheist are still subjected to the same social and psychological guidelines that hedge any society. We are still social animals and this trait is the result of evolution, not our choice. Why is it that Christians feel they have the high ground when it comes to morality? Have they READ the Bible? What say you?
If God is in union with the churches, then why does he allow the molestation of children under the supervision of Priests? If God can do all things, why doesn’t he make sure that his Churches are ethically clean?
How can Christians object to homosexuality when the Bible demands that a woman be stoned to death if she is not a virgin on her wedding day? How many of you were virgins when you were married?
