Transcript

In this short video, I am going to assume that you are an educated Christian. You have a college degree, and you have been trained to think logically and rationally about the world we live in. For example, you might be:

– An Engineer or Scientist
– A Doctor, Pharmacist or Nurse
– A Teacher
– A Manager or administrator
– A Government employee
– A Business owner
– An Account rep
– An Executive
– A Lawyer
– An Accountant
– A person working in the Financial sector or Human resources
– An Architect or Designer
– A Software developer

In other words, you are a smart person. You know how the world works, and you know how to think critically.

If you are an educated Christian, I would like to talk with you today about an important and interesting question. Have you ever thought about using your college education to think about your faith? Your life and your career demand that you behave and act rationally. Let’s apply your critical thinking skills as we discuss 10 simple questions about your religion.

Here is an example of the kind of thing I am talking about: As a Christian, you believe in the power of prayer. According to a recent poll (http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=42061), 3 out of 4 doctors believe that God is performing medical miracles on earth right now. Most Christians believe that God is curing cancers, healing diseases, reversing the effects of poisons and so on.

So here is question #1: Why won’t God heal amputees?

It’s a simple question, isn’t it? We all know that amputated legs do not spontaneously regenerate in response to prayer. Amputees get no miracles from God.

If you are an intelligent person, you have to admit that it’s an interesting question On the one hand, you believe that God answers prayers and performs miracles. On the other hand, you know that God completely ignores amputees when they pray for miracles.

How do you deal with this discrepancy? As an intelligent person, you have to deal with it, because it makes no sense. In order to handle it, notice that you have to create some kind of rationalization. You have to invent an excuse on God’s behalf to explain this strange fact of life. You might say, “well, God must have some kind of special plan for amputees.” So you invent your excuse, whatever it is, and then you stop thinking about it because it is uncomfortable.

Here is another example. As a Christian, you believe that God cares about you and answers your prayers.

So the second question is: Why are there so many starving people in our world?

Look out at our world and notice that millions of children are dying of starvation. It really is horrific. Why would God be worried about you getting a raise, while at the same time ignoring the prayers of these desperate, innocent little children? It really doesn’t make any sense, does it? Why would a loving god do this?

To explain it, you have to come up with some sort of very strange excuse for God. Like, “God wants these children to suffer and die for some divine, mysterious reason.” Then you push it out of your mind because it absolutely does not fit with your view of a loving, caring God.

Third question: Why does God demand the death of so many innocent people in the Bible? Look up these verses:

– Exodus 35:2 – God demands that we kill everyone who works on the Sabbath day.

– Deuteronomy 21:18-21 – God demands that we kill disobedient teenagers.

– Leviticus 20:13 – God demands the death of homosexuals.

– Deuteronomy 22:13-21 – God demands that we kill girls who are not virgins when they marry.

And so on… There are lots of verses like these.

It doesn’t make any sense, does it? Why would a loving God want us to murder our fellow human beings over such trivial matters? Just because you work on the wrong day of the week, you must die? That makes no sense, does it? In fact, if you think about it, you realize that it is insane. So you create some kind of rationalization to explain these verses.

Question #4: Why does the Bible contain so much anti-scientific nonsense? You have a college degree, so you know what I’m talking about. You know how science works. You happily use the products of science every day: your car, your cell phone, your microwave oven, your TV, your computer. These are all products of the scientific process. You know that science is incredibly important to our economy and to our lives.

But there is a problem. As an educated person you know that the Bible contains all sorts of information that is total nonsense from a scientific perspective.

    Well, its not education that is so important. But FAITH.

  2. Doctor Rob says:

    So is there a question or just this load of BS and blasphemy?

  3. Exodiafinder says:

    Any video from a website like godisimaginary.com has to be very biased.

  4. CalleyD says:

    everyone will be giving an answer to God

  5. never trust a muhammad sloth says:

    if they were intelligent enough to answer those questions theyd be atheists already

  6. Kevin Smith says:

    It’s like you can almost see the willful ignorance from the theists on here.

  7. Jeebus ur Christ ™(AM, Lvl 5) says:

    Well, based on George Michael’s answer …..

    “Cause you gotta have faith !!!! Oh you gotta have faith !!!!”

  8. Freedom says:

    your problem is that you think with all of our advancements in technology that we fully understand our world,when in actuality,we dont fully understand our own planet,or even our own bodies.just think about it.

    why are you always thinking about how a nonexistant being does not exist?

  9. HTacianas_II says:

    I’ve seen the video before. You should show this question to the guy who was asking about “argument from half truth”. It’s a very good example of one.

  10. Mtp says:

    Just a comment on the 3rd question; that was part of the old convenant with moses and the jews. Christians came about 4000 years after that :)

  11. Trixabelle says:

    I watched the video, and within the space of ten minutes and 44 seconds I had been called delusional, and my religious beliefs condemned for being a danger not only to myself, but to the wider society. It is pointless to argue about religion, because while everyone may debate faith the real truth is that nobody wants to admit that they could possibly be wrong. I would just like to be able to believe what I want to believe without some stranger calling me delusional. I don’t try to force my opinions on anyone else, and I don’t think anybody should be condemned for simply believing something to different to you.
    (Regarding questions three and four – you need to sort out the Old and New Testaments. The Old Testament is the Holy Book of the Jews, not Christians, and the story of Creation, as well as the other parables within the Bible are not meant to be taken literally, they are there to be interpreted by Christians. At least have the decency to understand the religion before you condemn it)

  12. Hogie says:

    So here is question #1: Why won’t God heal amputees?

    The answer is found when you look at what would happen if He did. We are in the era of faith.

    What would you, personally, do if someone with a missing arm or leg woke up one morning with a completely restored limb? What would you “really” do?

    So the second question is: Why are there so many starving people in our world?

    Because people have rejected God. They don’t want God involved in their lives.

    Third question: Why does God demand the death of so many innocent people in the Bible? Look up these verses:

    Innocent? God wants you too to understand the ultimate fate of those who reject Him.

    The Bible is not a science book. Nonsense is subjective.
