    Greek

    I always enjoy listening to people explain their belief by resorting to the "original Greek" to explain what a passage really means. My question is, why if our eternal salvation is so closely linked to the word of god, don't they do a better job of translating it? ...

    I Still Don't Understand The Need For A Crucifixion

    If God made us in our image, then how come we are considered sinners unworthy of his forgiveness if it weren't for Jesus? Why did somebody have to die in order for God to be willing to forgive? What is "salvation" from, hell? Why are so many Christians obsessed with where...

    "Is God Imaginary?"

    I can across the Godisimaginary.com , is not the first to claim that God is imaginary. In an article entitled “Theology and Falsification” written many years ago, Anthony Flew, one of the twentieth century’s most outspoken atheists wrote, Two explorers came upon a clearing...

    Man Is Evil Because God Is Evil

    God is evil and we are created in His image so we are evil. Why is God evil? God created Satan and he was allowed to be evil. The purpose of Satan is to tempt us away from the light, and God would punish us for following temptation, the punishment being evil itself. If God loved...

    I Apologize To Everyone...

    I am fraud to my family and I can no longer go on in lies. I will not hide it anymore. I have been trying to see if God YHVH would have me question Him. During this past few months it has been so. I have had extremely discomforting dreams that I have. I have seen the Glory of...

    The Impossibility Of Sinning...

    I have a problem with sins, seven or more, deadly or not.First of all, since god is claimed to be all-forgiving. If he indeed is, then there's no need for a hell or atonement for our so-called sins.Also because of the fact that god is all-knowing and a thing called pre-destiny...

    So Many Questions So Little Answers That Make Sense!

    How can God be 3-in-1? How can God be One and separated at the same time? Why would you say that Jesus is the Son of God? Why would you say Mary is the mother of God? Jesus never said "I am (the Son of) God". Jesus became God and Son of God at the First Council of Nicea in 325...

    Why So Desperate To Get Married?

    Whenever I'm at a Christian function I can't help but feel uncomfortable. I've found that Christians are obsessed with getting married/finding their "mate". It makes social interactions tense because I think they don't want to waste breath on you if you're not...

    Psychological Study On God

    I have recently heard that some student or professor did a psychological analysis on God's personality as described in the Torah, The Bible and the Quran, these being the holy books of the 3 Abrahamic faiths, therefore having a common God concept. Has anyone else heard of this...

    Do Babies Go to Hell??????

    First, let me say that this group is for legitimate questions and answers. I am an atheist, and I am not looking to be converted. I am looking to understand how Christians can reconcile the many contradictions in the bible with the tragedies, as well as the triumphs, that life...

    Where's the Proof??

    Another question to mull over.... How would you prove that your god exists, without using any arguments that someone from another religion would use to prove their god exists, and without quoting scripture or referencing the bible?

    If someone is loyal to another god

    and or gods a Christian would most likely say they are deceived by satan. For me I am a warrior with the Aesir and Vanir. How would you cope if I said you are being deceived by Loki?

    Why Would Telling Me You Have Seen Jesus With Your Own Eyes Convice Me?

    The most commen argument I hear as an athiest is that If a person has seen jesus with their own eyes that makes it all fact. Do they think i can not come up with a more likely and more logical explaination for having seen jesus? One possible explaination would be delusion. Alot...

    Why Does God Like The Smell Of Burnt Offerings?

    All through the OT, God requires offerings for atonement of sins. Elaborate temples have to be built to very specific detail and for every sin that is committed, an animal has to be killed, bled and burnt. Or was God just a convenient explanation for grilling meat? Maybe grilled...

    Why So Judgmental?

    I'm not talking about god now, I am to the Christians. Why do so many (not all) Christians judge people for not being Christian, for loving the people they love, for not believing in the horrors of Satan and Hell? Why do you believe that there is a Satan and a Hell? I've got...
