Here are 16 Quick Answers to questions of faith which I recently tweeted:
"Atheism isn't a belief, it's the absence of belief." Really? And I suppose anarchism is the absence of political convictions?
"If God made the world, who made God?" That's like asking "If the sun enlightens the earth, what enlightens the sun?"
"I don't believe in God." I probably don't believe in the god you're imagining either. Let's talk about Jesus...
"I could never be religious." Many say 'I could never be married' but then they meet The One. That's who Jesus is to me...
"How can u believe in the virgin birth of Jesus?" How can u believe in the virgin birth of the cosmos? Talk about miraculous
"Theres no need for God, science explains it all." I can explain that sentence. No need for you?
"If you grew up in 12th century Nepal you wouldn't be a Christian." If you grew up there you wouldn't be a sceptic.
"U believe we're born sick & commanded 2b well." No we're born hungry & offered Bread. As with the physical so the spiritual.
"Suffering rules out God." Which God? To be sure many gods are incompatible with suffering but what about the crucified God?
"To say Jesus is The One Way is narrow." But u insist on One Way to consider religions. That's narrow. The cosmic Christ isn't
"To say sex/marriage is for 1 man and 1 woman is homophobic." Think of a Buddhist. Is their vegetarianism carnivore-phobic?
"Religions cause all wars." Nope, about 7%. LINK God isn't the common denominator in war. Humanity is.
"Why doesn't God just forgive?" Ever tried it? It hurts! It means self-sacrifice cos forgiving a debt means absorbing the cost
"Christians are hypocrites." Christians are SINNERS so we must drop All masks including the worst one: the No-Hypocrisy-Mask
"I wish I had your faith." If I recommend my doctor, u don't need my faith in her, u need HER. U don't need faith but Jesus.
"If God knew there'd be suffering, why create?" Every parent knows their children will suffer, they give life nonetheless.
