A skeptic writes: "God said He would blot out all remembrance of Amalek. The Bible itself disproves this by mentioning Amalek to this day."
God told Moses to "write this for a memorial in the book," and God preserved the Book for 5,000 years so skeptics would know that God keeps every promise He makes. The phrase "I will utterly blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven" means that He will blot them out as a nation from the earth. There are no descendants of the Amalekites on the earth. They don't exist.

Đivo Matić: "How do you imagine Heaven?"
The Bible says that we can't, but I often think what life would be like without the Genesis curse. Imagine fruit trees and plants growing up with the energy of weeds. Imagine no pain, aging, suffering, disease and death.
One thing that helps me is to put aside the nebulous image of Heaven that most of us have, and to realize that God's Kingdom is physically coming to this earth (literally Heaven on earth), and His Will will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. We get to inherit this earth. God is gifting it to us; and it won't be as it is with its weeds, animals killing animals, its earthquakes, floods, tornadoes, etc.
Think of the most beautiful field of flowers, white-sanded beaches with clear blue water teeming with schools of bright yellow fish, of rows of fruit trees, amazing animals like the tall giraffe and the panda bear, of waterfalls, massive white clouds. Got it? Now toss them out as trash, compared to the things that God has prepared for those that love Him.

"I lack belief in gods."
Atheist, Prof. PZ Myers said,
"Boy, I really do hate these guys. You've got a discussion going, talking about why you're an atheist, or what atheism should mean to the community or some such topic that is dealing with our ideas and society, and some smug $@!#* comes along and announces that 'Atheism means you lack a belief in gods. Nothing more. Quit trying to add meaning to the term.'"
"As if atheism can only be some platonic ideal floating in virtual space with no connections to anything else; as if atheists are people who have attained a Zen-like ideal, their minds a void, containing nothing but atheism, which itself is nothing. (They are) $@!#*s.”
When I met PZ a few years ago, I told him how I appreciate his courage in saying things like this. The atheist community attacked him like a swarm of angry bees, because he was so outspoken about their silliness.

"Glaciers created the Great Lakes, and tectonic plates created mountains."
The word "created" is a figure of speech. Lakes are simply "melted" glaciers. Nothing was created. The rain doesn't create puddles on the ground. The puddles are merely rain on the ground.

"There are 3,000 gods that you don't believe in. I just don't believe in one more."
There are not 3,000 gods. There are millions (Hinduism has 350,000,000). Making an image of god (either with your hands or in your mind) is called "idolatry" and is a violation of the First and the Second of the Ten Commandments.
However, there is only one Creator, and He is the One you have to face on Judgment Day whether you believe in Him or not. Justice is coming for you...

"After Jesus died, the Apostles created Christian communism—'If you read the Sermon on the Mount of Jesus Christ, and the Moral Code of the Builder of Communism – they are identical.'"
Jesus said to love your enemies and to do good to those who despitefully use you --atheistic communism slaughtered 110 million people. They couldn't be more opposed one to another.

"Have you guys read the part about not judging lest ye be judged?"
This verse of the Bible is directed at Christians, in the context of not judging other Christians.
It goes hand in hand with Romans 14, which is about Christians judging each other as to what they should eat, drink, etc. Later on in the same portion of Scripture (Sermon on the Mount) Jesus said that when we judge, we should use "righteous judgment."

"So why the Christian God? Why not one of the other thousands?" Jason King
There's no such thing as "the Christian God." There is only one Creator who revealed Himself to Moses, and promised to destroy man’s greatest enemy—death. He then became one human being—Jesus of Nazareth and destroyed the power of death. Now, all who repent and trust alone in Him—whether they are black or white, Jew or Gentile, Muslim or Hindu, atheist, or agnostic may receive forgiveness of sin, and the gift of everlasting life.

"There is proof of evolution. Have you noticed how children are taller these days? Welcome to observed evolution, change over time."
That isn't Darwinian evolution (as Richard Dawkins likes to call it). That's adaptation within the human kind (family). We see that happening throughout all of nature. It has nothing to do with evolution.

Have you noticed that the Bible is filled with "childish" stories that (if taken literally) insult the intellect? There's a reason for that.
Years ago I ran a Bible club, after which I told 100 kids to line up for candy. As they did so I noticed that it was a line of greed. The big bullies had pushed their way to the front and the quiet sickly kids were relegated to the back.
So I told the kids to about-face. Then I took great delight in going to the other end of the line first.
That's what God has done with the ultimate gift of everlasting life. He turned the line around, and He it did it by consistently using foolish things to confound the arrogant brats of this world.
Who, with any intellectual dignity, would ever stoop to believe the childish stories of the Bible? The answer is—those who understand that in this world, where the rich get richer and the poor get stomped on, God has turned the line around.
The arrogant bullies of this world lose, big time. God resists the proud and gives grace to the humble.
"Then Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them, and said, "Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven" (Matthew 18:2-4).

"When people talk about slavery in the Bible and say the Bible advocates it, what do you say to them when they refuse to accept that slavery in the Bible is different from slavery centuries ago in America?" Steven Gorges
You have to remember that being anti-Bible for many is a hill upon which they will die. It's a huge deal, because if the Bible is God's Word then they are accountable for adultery, fornication, for sinful imaginations, and for lust (which the Bible says is adultery of the heart). So their hard-nosed agenda is to prove that the God of the Bible is unjust in His judgments, and therefore any thought of Judgment Day and Hell is bogus.
So they are searching after truth about as much as a man dying of thirst searches after salt. They rather want to bolster their case for an evil Bible, so they fortify themselves with what they think are mistakes, contradictions, and atrocities, etc.
If you explain that biblical slavery was akin to being a servant to pay off debt, the skeptic will just run off to cut and paste more problems he has with the Bible.
The only effective way to convince him is to move away from his contentious intellect (his carnal mind) and appeal to his God-given society-shaped conscience and take him through the moral Law. With the help of God your aim is to make him thirst after righteousness. It was only when I saw my sins (way back in 1972) that I began to see my danger and whisper "What must I do to be made right with God?" The salt of the Law made me thirst for the righteousness that can only be found in Christ.

OLAADEGBU:Is it different, though? Let’s see what the Bible says in Leviticus 25:44-46
1) Your male and female slaves are to come from the nations around you; from them you may buy slaves.
2) You may also buy some of the temporary residents living among you and members of their clans born in your country, and they will become your property.
3) You can bequeath them to your children as inherited property and you can make them slaves for life,
How is this better than slavery in America? The slaves of America came from foreign countries (mostly Africa) and were enslaved for life. Children born to those slaves were also enslaved for life. They were traded and passed on to children as property. So what was the difference?

Seun:did you know that slavery prevailed in the ancient world? in a bid to discredit Christianity, you atheists focus on the Bible. did you know that the Hebrew law is far more superior than the code of the pagan nation at that time ? in Jewish law a runway slave seeking refuge will not be allow to return to his master . but the pagan nation issue a death penalty for runway slave.
A Hebrew-owned slave could choose to bind himself to his master for life. The agreement would be ratified by the piercing of his ear (Ex. 21:6; Dt. 15:17). In Babylon, a slave who said to his master, “You don’t own me!” could have his ear cut off!
under the mosaic law , robbery required restitution either with actual payment or service. the Babylonian law make it a serious crime. under the law of Moses ,to kill a slave is a death penalty.

Funaki:Listen the Midianites were descendants of Abraham through Keturah, and God promise to Abraham was to preserve his descendant, if you read numbers 25, The midianites were corrupted and they are seducing isreal to worship others gods:

men began to indulge in se*xual

25:17-18 it state why God command the israelite

You're just quoting one portion of scriptures without a complete understanding.
You make it sound as if God implied that the Israelites couldn't be bought as slaves because He considers them superior.
No. The only reason He said they couldn't be bought as slaves was cos He said they were already His own slaves. Not superiority. He wouldn't share them with anyone else.-Lev 25:42.
Meanwhile, you should modify the Bible chapter you quoted to 25. It' not 24.
The other issue of buying and passing on slaves is similar to buying, transferring and loaning out football players.
It wasn't anything inhumane, erstwhile the Bible wouldn't permit it.
Abraham was going to leave his entire estate to his slave. so they weren't treated badly as you presume.
Anyone who treated a slave badly at that time was only acting out his personal evil intentions and not any instruction from the Bible.

malvisguy212, why kill the boys and the women? After the war, the soldiers brought back the women and the children. Moses got angry and told them to kill the boys and the women and keep the girls for themselves. What is the difference between this and what ISIS do in the middle east? They go to villages and kill the men and keep the female as sex slaves. Your excuse is lame, God wanted to preserve them? lol.

So ancient apes doesnt have the same anatomic characteristics as what we have in modern apes? Same as saying, ancient goats is not same as nowadays goats.
We are made from the beginning as human Seun, and no link whatsoever with apes, God has created us human uniquely and distinct from another animals.
You have been wonderfully made, formed by God. God formed you through the mating of your parent, (be fruitful and multiply), brought you to life through your parent. You dishonour your parent and God when you refer to yourself as an ape being. Imagine the deep understanding of your name; OLUWASEUN (God thank you), you must sit to know why your parent named you OLUWASEUN.
