"Is the Bible literally true?"

All of Scripture is inspired by God. Some parts are literal, some figurative. When Jesus said that He was the door He didn't mean a literal door with hinges, but that He is the way of entry into Heaven.

"I guarantee all you so called God-believers go to a doctor if you get cancer, heart problems, kidney disease, etc. If you truly believed you would pray and expect Him to heal you."

Of course we pray, and we go to doctors. The two are not mutually exclusive. The Bible says that the prayer of faith will save the sick and that having a merry heart (being happy) does good "like a medicine." Medicine is good.

"We are primates."

You may think and act like an animal, but that doesn't change the fact that God holds you morally accountable and you have to face Him on Judgment Day, whether you believe in Him or not.

"There is a strong correlation between religious belief and a lower intelligence level though."

That's a matter of perspective. We are not the ones who believe that we are talking primates and are cousins of bananas (as atheist, Richard Dawkins, believes).

"Bottom line -- when you declare you have faith in something - you are literally proclaiming you have no evidence, but choose to believe anyways."

I have faith in my wife, and it's based on the evidence of knowing her for years. She is impeccably trustworthy. It's even more so when it comes to trusting God. Bottom line -- we have thousands of years of His faithfulness, laid out for us in the Scriptures.

"A God of unconditional love would NEVER put conditions on that love. Hell is a condition."

The god you don't believe in doesn't exist. It's called "idolatry" when you make up false gods (a violation of the First Commandment). Nowhere does the Bible say that God has "unconditional" love. He is a God of justice and holiness, and you have to face Him on Judgment Day whether or not you believe in Him.

Hell is not a "condition." It's a very real place of punishment.

"Why should I be punished for something some woman ages ago did?"

Although you have inherited a sinful nature from Adam and Eve, you are morally responsible to God for your actions. That defense wouldn’t work in a court of law, and neither will it work on Judgment Day.

"Sure wish you can talk to my dad Ray. He's an atheist and so difficult to talk to about God." Ingrid Urey Bolanos

This is how I would talk to your dad if I had a chance. I would say “I have a question for you. As an atheist, do you believe that nothing created everything?—which is a scientific impossibility.” If he says that he does, I would emphasize that it’s scientifically impossible, and leave him with that. If he doesn't believe that (which most admit they don't), I would follow up with "So you believe that something made everything, but it just wasn’t God?"

If he says a predictable "Yes, that’s right," I would say, "Well you’re not an atheist. You're an agnostic. You believe in some sort of creative force but you don't think it was God. Let's see if we can find out why you don't want it to be God." If he would let me speak further, I would take him through the Ten Commandments and we would find out that the issue isn't intellectual. It's moral. He’s a liar, a thief, a blasphemer and an adulterer-at-heart who knows that God exists (but as someone once wisely said) He can’t find Him for the same reason a thief can't find a policeman.

Our movie "Audacity" puts this question into perspective:

"Suppose the Muslim hell is the real one. Then YOU lose."

Muslims aren't fools. They know the Creator exists because of the order of Nature and the existence of the human conscience. They also know that Hell exists, but they have no Saviour to avoid it. God provided a Saviour for all of humanity. He said that "whoever" trusts in Him will be saved. This is truly good news for the whole world.

Anyone who believes that nothing created everything isn't a free-thinker. He is free from thinking. The Bible calls him a "fool" (see Psalm 14:1).

"Have you ever heard of someone who grew a limb? No… why does God always cure the easy stuff that the body can do on its own?"

Have you ever heard of God growing hair on bald heads, making short people tall, replacing knocked out teeth, or making fat people skinny? I'm sure you haven't. How could you then leap over logic and reason, and say that God doesn't exist because you haven't seen Him do such things?

Atheism is intellectual suicide.

"Jesus asked Himself if this cup could pass him by. He didn’t listen to Himself."

When the Creator and Upholder of the Universe made a human body and filled that body as a hand fills a glove (Jesus was "the express image of the invisible God" ) He didn't cease to be the omnipotent Creator and Upholder of all things.

Jesus was fully Man and fully God, but in the incarnation He was limited to time, space, hunger, thirst, all so that He could suffer the pain of death , to save us from Eternal Justice.

"You can accept both evolution and God. They're not incompatible."

God made Adam in His image. Neither God nor Adam was an ape. Jesus said, "In the beginning God made them male and female." He didn't make them as primordial soup.

Objeciton: "My conscience is clear because I follow some practices of Buddhism."

Response: A rapist can tell the judge that his conscience is clear because, in his mind, the woman he raped asked for it by her provocative dress.

A clear conscience isn't the issue. On Judgment Day forgiveness of sins is the only thing that will matter. It will be the difference between innocent or guilty, life or death, Heaven or Hell.

Forgiveness of sins can only come through the cross.

"I don't know how anyone can tell me with a straight face that an all-forgiving, all-loving, compassionate God would condemn anyone to eternal pain and agony in the bowels of Hell for eternity just for the actions of a mere 90 years on this planet."


The Bible doesn't say that God is all-forgiving and all-loving. You are creating an "idol"--making up a false god in your mind. God is holy and just as well as loving and merciful.

His love is seen in that He gave you the gift of life. His mercy is seen in allowing you to sin against Him. But if you refuse to repent and end up dying in your sins, He will give you absolute justice, and that's a fearful thing.

Damnation means forever being damned from all the pleasures He lavished upon you, for which you were so unthankful.

"You also need to remember that blasphemy only counts if you believe. Many non deists do not recognize blasphemy since they have nothing to blaspheme against."

That's like saying, "Judge, you need to remember that rape only counts if you believe it is rape. I don't recognize rape."

It is amazing that anyone who purports to be intelligent would think that something doesn't exist just because he or she doesn't believe in it.

If I don't believe in the sun because it's cloudy, it doesn't disappear just because of my lack of belief.

"I would start with Origin of Species and read the 1000+ books written on the topic since then. How many books prove God? Oh right, one."

You will read another thousand and not find proof for evolution. The whole belief rests on faith. I read every page of Origin of Species and it was drier than a ten year-old peanut butter sandwich. The Bible doesn't prove God. It doesn't need to. We know that God exists because of the incredible order of Nature and our God-given conscience. It is simply the Instruction Book for those who know Him.

"God forces victims to marry their rapists."

Not so. The sex in the commonly cited verse, is consensual (Deuteronomy 22:28—29). Nowadays we call it a shot-gun wedding. The previous verse will tell you that God gives the death sentence to rapists. That's how much He cares about the victim.

"Why does God tell people to own slaves?"

If a Hebrew was in debt he could work off that debt by being a "bond-servant" or "slave." We put negative connotations on the word "slave" because Americans kidnapped Africans, sold them as bond-servants and treated them with great cruelty. God prescribed the death sentence for kidnapping.

"I can be a good person without God."

Anyone of us can be good without God. All we need is a very low standard of goodness.

There are 46 dictionary definitions of "good" from which to choose. The word "good" in God's Book, however, means moral perfection, in thought, word and in deed.

That's the high standard of goodness that we will be judged by on Judgment Day (whether you believe in God or not).

"God told Abraham to sacrifice his son to prove his love."

God told Abraham to "offer" Isaac, and when he was about to kill him, God stopped him (see Genesis 22). This is a Bible "type"-- of God sending His "only-begotten Son" to suffer for the sin of the world. Any dirt we try and throw at God will always come back down on us, because He is without sin.

"The First Commandment says, 'You shall have no other gods before Me' --that proves He isn't the only God!"

There are millions of false gods (Hinduism has hundreds of millions). Man gravitates towards idols (which he makes with his hands or with his mind), because they don't demand moral accountability.

"An atheist doesn't believe that nothing created everything."

Atheists say that they have "no belief in a god." If I have a car and have no belief in a maker of the car, it, by default, means that I think that the car made itself--or that no one made it.

It is scientificially impossible for nothing to create anything.
