Here are just some of the questions I’ve asked myself along the way.
Why does God need to be so hidden? (link)
Why is God so dependent on our belief in Him?
Why does there need to be shedding of blood in order for there to be forgiveness?
Why did God send Christ only to a small group of people?
If the Bible is a perfect holy book, why was it only given to a small group of people?
Why did God order so much murder in the Old Testament? (Remember how much was involved in securing the promised land.)
Why did God order the killing of people for very small crimes in the Old Testament? (ex. for a disrespectful child, for picking up sticks on the Sabbath?)
If the Bible is a perfect holy book, why did it take 300+ years, negotiating, and voting in order to put the New Testament together?
Why would God expect us to believe stories like Noah’s ark, a man in a fish’s belly, etc.
As parents we try to make the punishment fit the crime and we do it in order to teach our child. Why would God create an everlasting punishment of hell which outlasts any possible crime and has no teaching value or purpose?
If God really sends people to hell is it moral to align ourselves with such a god?
Why would God leave the spreading of his message to sinful people? If it’s so important shouldn’t he have found a better way to communicate?
Why did God allow suffering? (Remember he could have created any possible world.)
Why does God hold people responsible for sinning when he created them with the ability to sin? Isn’t that his mistake not ours?
If prayer worked, wouldn’t it be obvious? (link)
If we need God to be moral, why are nonbelievers just as moral as Christians?
Isn’t it MORE moral to do the right thing because it’s the right thing to do, not because you’ll be rewarded or punished?
Which is more likely, that miracles happened or that people wanted miracles to happen?
Why do we easily dismiss absurdities in other religions but bend over backwards to have them make sense in our own religion?
Why are Christians so sure they know the only way to God when they know so little about other religions?
Why are Christians not afraid of the Muslim god? (and vice versa)
If the existence of the Christian god is obvious, why do we have to constantly drill it into our children? Shouldn’t they automatically believe in his existence?
If everything needs a creator, then why can God exist without a creator? If he can exist without a creator then couldn’t we as well?
Who says there was ever ‘nothing’ and therefore this world had to be created? Maybe ‘something’ always existed.
If God is all-powerful why does he get all the credit when something good happens but none of the blame when something bad happens?
Is life really meaningless if there is no god? Why is meaning that comes from outside of ourselves better than meaning that we create on our own?
