Re: The reason i'm not christian, maybe someone can explain?

I think the biggest thing i'm questioning is the old testament and the way god acts and the things he says. I've heard great arguments about the existence of jesus and many other things from the new testament, but some of the evil things stated in the old testament like smashing babies against rocks...

Re: The reason i'm not christian, maybe someone can explain?

I'm just going to end this with saying that I'm going to buy that book that was recomended. I'm tired of all this "honesty" and lack of trust. If I was an atheist I would have been the first thing I stated, but I didn't, I stated I was a deist. My question is straightforward: why would a loving god ...

Re: The reason i'm not christian, maybe someone can explain?

Well i mean how can an all loving god condone all those things? killing non believers (even if they are family and people you love) and children is not loving and is worse than what you see in most horror films these days lol. The person or people who wrote those things are disturbed and in no way c...

Re: The reason i'm not christian, maybe someone can explain?

alright here are some of the worst ones: Heres one on baby killing: "The glory of Israel will fly away like a bird, for your children will die at birth or perish in the womb or never even be conceived. Even if your children do survive to grow up, I will take them from you. It will be a terrible day ...

Re: The reason i'm not christian, maybe someone can explain?

Again, I'm not here to "raise doubts" or even debate...I was told about this site by an atheist, who i was actually arguing with, and he used it because he told me that he didn't want to even begin to write the horrible things in the bible, i was shocked. Similarly to the atheist i didn't want to wr...

Re: The reason i'm not christian, maybe someone can explain?

The reason i post all these ...

Re: The reason i'm not christian, maybe someone can explain?

And the reason i link it is because i get the links from atheist friends and i place them on here so that maybe ...

The reason i'm not christian, maybe someone can explain?

<Link removed by moderator. Question is clear without it.>

There's verses that talk about murdering babies and incest. IDK if the whole "you need to put in the context" argument will work

Re: question about bible and killing?

question about bible and killing?

I was a quick conversation with an atheist and he was saying how christianity and islam really aren't that different cause they both condone killing and he gave me these two examples:
(Deuteronomy 17:12 NLT)
(2 Chronicles 15:12-13 NAB)

what do you guys think?
