1. If God created only Adam and Eve, wouldn’t that imply that the first family had to marry their own relatives in order to procreate?
If that is the case then why was marriage between relatives later outlawed in the bible? Wouldn’t this mean that a sin is acceptable if indeed in the end it serves a greater purpose?
2. The story of Job. Job was a rich and successful yet humble, righteous and a strong believer in God. Why then would God hand Job to Satan, see Job loose his wealth, his family and anything that means to him, just so he could prove a point? What point was this?
(side note) Did you know that spell-check notes satan should be capitalized and not God. Very interesting, try it.
3. The Bible says that God gave us the ability to choose what is right and wrong. Why would He/She do this knowing very well that majority if not all of us are incapable of living the righteous life that His/Her word dictate?
Isn’t it like a mother handing a sharp knife to a child and waiting to see what the child will do with it since once they harm themselves they will not repeat the same mistake?
4. If the Bible both old and new testament is God’s word, then wouldn’t the first testament been perfect? The fact that it was updated / revised means there is an element of reality of the times it was not addressing. Perhaps by now the Bible should have been updated several times over to reflect the challenges that we face today.
5. This one is the interesting one. What was Jesus doing between approximately 13 years and when He reappeared at almost 30? There are theories out there, see da vinci code but how can such an important character in Christianity have such a large part of their life unaccounted?
There are no easy answers to any of these questions. But just thinking about religion and how we relate to God is a task that everyone should partake at least once in their life.
