In the above writings in his own words Chris shows his intent, and continues in the following as it is found on his website. Quick Fact:In the US, the number of non-religious people has more than doubled from 14.3 million in 1990 to 29.4 million in 2001; their proportion has grown from just eight percent of the total in 1990 to over fourteen percent in 2001. This was the greatest increase in absolute as well as in percentage terms among all religious groups.Source: 2001 American Religious Identification Survey.
Chris also writes “ This web site is designed to spread the vicious truth about the Bible. For far too long priests and preachers have completely ignored the vicious criminal acts that the Bible promotes. The so called “God” of the Bible makes Osama Bin Laden look like a Boy Scout. This God, according to the Bible, is directly responsible for many mass-murders, rapes, pillage, plunder, slavery, child abuse and killing, not to mention the killing of unborn children. I have included references to the Biblical passages, so grab your Bible and follow along”.
Well Chris this preacher will not ignore your so called contradictions and I have my bible in my hand and you can see my response at http://m21churchofchrist.org go to the church blog if you dare. Each month I plan on answering at least one of his so called contradictions.
I wish I could debate Chris in a public form, but Chris would be putting too much on the line. So I doubt He will ever contact me. I will start with each contradiction as listed in order on his website. If this is anyone who knows Chris, Please point him in my direction.
His First so called contradiction is found in the following:
1. God is satisfied with his works
Gen 1:31 ¶ Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
God is dissatisfied with his works.
Gen 6:6 ¶ And the LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart.
My response: Context, Context, Context, Chris! You have a pretext, for you have not taken these verses in contest. First Gen. 1:31 in space and time talks about man, before he had ever sinned, Sin is the opposite of Good. Thus in Gen 1:31 Man was created good, but in Gen 3, we see when man became evil, when man sinned, which is the opposite of good. Thus Man had fallen from fellowship with God and a few hundred years had passed, and God Said in Genesis 6:5-7 Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 ¶ And the LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. 7 So the LORD said, "I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them."
So God did not create man evil, thus he was satisfied with his work, but when man sinned (by mans own choice) and his wickedness was great, and every intent of the thoughts of his Heart was only evil continually, that is why God Sorry that he made man.
No contradiction here and remember if there is a logical explanation between the two apparent verses that are said to be contradicting, there is no contradiction.
This is Tim the Michigan Trucker going 10 7 on the side.
