  1. How should theology be fitted into the life of the average church member? How much theology should they know, and to what extent? Which doctrines do you think they should know as required or essential?

    Chuck Colson in his recent book has some great thoughts on this, and just wondering what yours are.

    Thanks!

    Can you name one moral action done by a theist which could not be done by an atheist?

    Can you name one evil action done by a theist which could not be done by an atheist?*

    *As in they would never do it because it’s silly, not because they are physically incapable of doing it.

    If the point of humans is to worship God, what then is the point of God’s existence?

    PS I elaborate on this question in my new post…

    What makes theism any more valid than deism?

    How did god decide what’s moral and what’s not?

    Keep in mind that he created everything (supposedly) to fit his tastes, so he could have changed anything he wanted, and keep in mind that nothing existed before him (and creation also didn’t exist) upon which he could base his morals and decide right and wrong.

    PS Why is it okay for god to break his own rules so much?

    Isn’t he supposed to be all-good (and he set his own standards, so this is all the more inflammatory)?

    Why can’t he follow the rules HE set and could make anything HE wants?

    If the Garden of Eden is essentially the same as heaven, why was the evil, tempting snake in it?

    Hi Chris,

    At the end of the day, why should God care whether we believe in his existence? Is this not a bit pathetic? And if our believing in him was so important (that he is willing to burn those who don’t for eternity) why did god not provide empirical evidence supporting his existence? Why would god demand blind faith, and punish inquisitive thought?

    Sorry, quite a few questions, but it does seem to me that the Christian god is vain, self-indulged and most of all, anti-intellectual. He rewards thoughtless drones, who do, and believe what they’re told, and punishes those who have rationally considered the evidence (or lack of) and deduced that god may not exist, and need not exist.

    Cheers,
    Paul

    I want to add something to Paul’s question:

    If god wants faith instead of inquiry so bad, why did he make inquiry and critical thinking necessary to the survival of species?

    I challenge Paul and Chill to re-examine their belief that God wants senseless drones. 🙂

    God clearly instructs us to use our brains and we have examples of leaders who have “stood in the gap” and asked God point blank questions. Some received answers, yet some did not.

    God Bless!

    How would you know if some facet of your religion were false?

    (Not the whole thing, but one piece that you regard as truth on faith)

    Why is it wrong to live your life in sin in squalor and get forgiven on your death bed, since you are thus clean in god’s eyes?
