Questions Christians Can’t Answer
Mohamad Mostafa Nassar
- How could Moses write about his own death [and beyond] in Deuteronomy 34:10-11?
- If Biblical God is all-knowing, why did God ask Adam where he was and whether he had eaten fruit in Genesis?
(If the answer to this question is “so God could test Adam’s integrity”, why would God not have already known this since he is all-knowing and knows the hearts of man?)
- Why did God create mankind at all if in Genesis God said he was sorry he created them-Contradiction right?
- Are you sure Adam committed the “original sin” and not the Satan?
- Why did God create human beings to inherit the sin that later requires God himself to kill himself to save humanity from himself?
- If the Biblical God is all-just, how can he possibly punish mankind for what Adam did, can we punish you for your parents’ sins now?
- Why did God feel the need to show mankind his love in the form of killing himself to save humanity from himself, did not he love Adam when he created him, did not God know the unseen future, Christianity is being blasphemous?
- Why was the purported Jesus’ death on the cross the ONLY way sins could be forgiven, that is insult to God and accusing him of the inability to forgive sins without committing suicide on a cross or a stick?
- Can your Biblical God forgive without the need to have kid and murdering him, that is NOT love, that is brutal human sacrifice?
- Why did not God just destroy the devil to save humanity instead of having a son and murdering him which is himself too?
- How infinite can Jesus’ love be if for those who reject him as being their savior, he consigns them to an everlasting hell?
- Where did Satan get the power to tempt God for forty days, that is a farce?
- Why did the prophet Isaiah [in Isaiah 7:14], in his foretelling of the birth of Jesus, use the Hebrew word “almah”, which means “young woman” and not use the word “betulah”, which means “virgin”, when describing Jesus’ mother?
- Why did Biblical God contradict himself in Genesis by creating the sun and moon on the fourth day [Gen. 1: 16-19] to provide light during the day and night when he already created light for the day and night on the first day [Gen. 1: 3-5]?
- If God is all-knowing, why did he not know until the very moment in which Abraham was about to sacrifice his son Ismael that Abraham feared God?
- Why does the Bible say, “God is love” [1 John 4:8], “love is not jealous” [1 Corinthians 13: 4] and “God is jealous” [Exodus 20:5]? [Deductive reasoning makes it impossible for all three verses to be true simultaneously].
- Why is it that God is allowed to possess a characteristic [jealousy, in Deut. 4:24 and Exodus 20:5] that the Bible itself denounces in Proverbs 27:4 and 14:30?
- How many pregnant women were drowned during the flood of Noah?
- What happens to the people that died before Jesus came?
- Why did the little old lady that Jesus healed one Sunday need her walker to get around again next Sunday? Was she only temporarily worthy of a healing?
- How is it that the bible explains the earth to be 6,000 to 8,000 years old when we know that dinosaur bones are at least 65 million years old? This isn’t the only example of our planet’s age by any means, either.
- If Jesus died on the cross and spent three days in hell to pay for the sins of the world, then why would we have to go to hell ourselves and pay for them again? God is then, in essence, being paid for our sins twice. With that said, was Jesus’ sacrifice not worthy enough? If that is the case, why should we care that he died for our sins if his sacrifice means nothing at all?
- Why there aren’t any half-ape/half-men walking around today, right? Why don’t we see giants, fiery talking serpents, talking donkeys and many other mythical creatures that are described in the Bible?
- Why do Christians share the same statistical rate of divorce as everyone else? “What God hath made, let no man put asunder.” How could Christian marriages fail if they are sanctified by God?
- In the book of Luke chapter 19 verse 27, Jesus says, “But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.” This seems clear that Jesus would have Christians kill all non-believers. How do you explain this? Convert them or kill them, right?
- If God’s word is supposed to be the accurate word of God himself, how are we supposed to trust it enough to model our lives after it 100% when hundreds of books were excluded from the original text throughout so many translations and revisions in history?
- If God and Jesus are the same, having the same mind, knowledge, and power, then why would Jesus beg himself in the garden of Gethsemane, to spare himself from having to be crucified? Furthermore, why would Jesus ask himself why he has forsaken himself by allowing himself to be crucified?
- Are your children innocent in the God’s vision or are they still have the original sin born with?
- It is a common belief among Christians that the only unforgivable sin is consciously rejecting Christ as Lord and savior. With that said, it is also believed by Christians that those who have never heard of Jesus and the Christian faith, i.e. individuals within an isolated tribe, babies and so forth, have no concept of Christ and cannot, therefore, be in the position to consciously reject him. This would allow them entrance into heaven by default. With that said, why would you tell anyone about Christ? Why would you spread the word if that would put them in the position to consciously reject him? If they are already going to heaven due to their ignorance of the word of God, why not just let that be? You would, in effect, be losing more souls to Satan by spreading the word. You might want to rethink that whole “fishers of men” thing.
- God allowed Jesus to be tempted as a human by Satan in the wilderness of the desert. Again, if God and Jesus are the same entity, then what kind of sense does it make for God to allow himself to be tempted by Satan in the wilderness to see if he would give in to the temptation? In addition to that, if he were all-knowing, he would have already known the outcome and, therefore, could have avoided the whole thing all together.
- Seeing as though everything we, including Christians, enjoy in the modern world is a product of science, why do Christians so fervently deny factual scientific evidence that disproves so many aspects of the bible and their religion as a whole?
- If Christianity is the only true religion, then why do practitioners of all other religions feel fulfilled in their faith and achieve the same perhaps much more desired results than Christians?
- In the beginning God created Adam and Eve, right oh was it the word or Adam and Eve?
- Why is it that when a Christian is faced with questions that have huge negative implications towards the logic of their faith, they conveniently say that it is in God’s plan? Is the scope of their own understanding of the religion and God they have offered their souls to so limited that their only answer is ‘God’s plan’?
