I dont blame the atheists for attacking 'religion' to be honest.
In fact id soon side with them that with 'religion'.
The man raises some good points on his video, some I used to agree with myself.
Out of my limited wisdom im going to answer his questions (because i can't sleep and i'm bored lol). Also it's a good way of testing my faith...Ok, let's see...
Why won't God heal amputees?
First of all, who said he didn't? Do they have proof? That's what Atheists want isn't it? PROOF PROOF PROOF for everything? Well I DEMAND it here now as well i tells ya!
Also, if someone loses an arm because he was careless in chopping down a tree or something, what exactly has that got to do with God? It's the mans fault.
If someone is born disabled or missing limbs, Jesus said they exist so that the 'power of God can be seen'. God made them that way and as such if someone is born with no legs, he is still FULLY able to fullfill God's purpose for his life as he was simply created that way.
Why are there so many starving people in this world?
Because of sin...Sin has it's dire consequences. That's why we are to seek God and put an end to it. Yes Mr Atheist, there's no point telling us about all the problems in the world if YOU are part of it. ALL sin is punishable by death.
Why does God demand the deaths of so many innocent people in the Bible?
We are told that God is good, and that God is love, so I'm sure God had his reasons. In the Old Testament he had to protect his 'chosen' people (The Israelites) from disease etc, hence the reason children were circumcised after so many days, men couldn't sleep with women on their period, men couldn't sleep with men etc etc. Your taking this out of context, Jesus shows us what God is like, whatever happened in the Old Testament was for different people, at a different time in a very different world.
Why does the bible contain so much anti-scientific nonsense?
Where? Oh you mean it has stories like a talking snake etc? Ever heard of symbolism? Of course you have! This is just an excuse isn't it Mr Atheist!
Long before science the Bible said the world was round and God hangs it upon nothing. Long before science the Bible told people to wash their hands under 'running water' to avoid contamination from invisible bacteria...I could go on all day, but why bother, you know the truth.
Why is God such a huge proponent of slavery in the bible?
Again different people different times. But the slaves in those days would have been FAR worse treated if God hadn't set rules in place for them. In fact after 6 years a slave was free to live as a free man or woman. You won't find that anywhere else in history.
Why do bad things happen to good people?
Why do you think? It's called life my friend, it's no respector of peoples.
Why didn't any of Jesus' miracles in the bible leave behind any evidence?
What are you expecting here? Do you think the bottle of water that Jesus turned into wine is still here? Nope it's long drunk! The people he healed are all in the grave etc etc.
How do you explain the fact that Jesus has never appeared to you?
I wouldn't have to explain it, God has revealed himself to me many times. In fact that's the reason im here talking to you today.
Why would Jesus want you to eat His body and drink His blood?
It's symbolic, (as you well know).
Bread is needed to satisfy the physical existence and sustenance just as He, being God, must be consumed in order for a person to be spiritually filled and satisfied. Just as we partake of bread with pure faith that it will keep us alive, eternal life comes through the same kind of faith in Christ.
Why do Christians get divorced at the same rate as non-Christians.
Because they are human and fallable. Also just because someone says they are a Christian doesn't mean they are one, or that they are living by the spirit. 'By their fruits shall you know them'.
I think i'll post this to the guy on utube that made the video now.
