The six questions that Christians should answer to help the nonbeliever to accept Christ. May the Lord Christ Jesus mediate the nonbeliever’s heart.
Why does bad things happen to good people who believe in Christ Jesus?
Romans 5:12; “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:”
All people are under the original sin of Adam and Eve. No one is immune to bad things happening to them.
Genesis 3:5; “For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” This is the original lie told by Satan who told the first lie to humans.
The phrase “ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil” reveals the desires of humans and their desire to rule the world. Evil is pervasive liken unto water which washes over everything; no one is immune from evil; bad things can happen to everyone. The humans desire to have dominion over the world, causing sin because God is sovereign over the world but humans oppose God.
One can be close enough to the Lord in order to hear the Spirit Of God (the small soft voice within) speak giving warnings of danger and guidance to gratuities. The obedience of civil norms and social mannerisms falls short of God’s Spiritual Laws. So, who is called very sanctified socially is actually in the same boat with sinners as seen by God.
Humans can think for themselves. Everything can be comprehended by humans. Why should we worship God?
The above question is the jewel of atheist or just plain secularist. The answer is simple. God has given humans freewill with the ability to learn and reason. God must be in the equation of life or else the outcome is different with a lesser magnitude being treated. It’s liken unto isolating one block in a major city and observe the dynamics. But, if the block is exposed to the whole city area then variances from without causes a very different dynamics. The capacity of Christianity covers before the founding of the world and the area from the beginning of time until the present through the world unto the end plus life after the end. We worship God to experience positive encounters in this world with the consoling thought of life after death.
The two main categories of philosophy are liberation from suppression and acquisition to a future social-political state. When we compare them to the Word of God they are very limited. Many philosophers has attempted to destroy the believe in God Father, God Son, and God’s Holy Spirit without much success. Some have repented and accepted Christ Jesus on their death bed. Philosophy is liken unto a sign hanging over the gate to a cemetery which read “from this point on you are on your own.”
GOD IS ALIVE; NICHE IS DEAD.
Why does Christians behave the same as nonbelievers?
This question is quite genuine. Not trying to escape a compelling truth, I submit that most all Christians are inspiring Christians. They support the church. They acknowledge that the Word of God is true. They support and love Jesus.Their spirit, although not perfect, tempers evil in the world. There are a massive number of born again believers who has lived within the past 2000 years who has behaved differently from the nonbelievers.
If God knows everything, than why would God create a soul that is to be destroyed?
My attitude about this question is that we learn precept after precept until all mysteries are revealed. I believe that the answer is in the future. Faith comes into play when it comes to this question. One possibility is reincarnation in the sense that God places a soul in a different discipline (Creation) until the soul passes God’s test. Although, the soul would experience possibly many deaths. This belief challenges the concept of hell making this world part hell; we are avoiding hell as much as possible while on the other hand seeking the good.
Why does Christians refer only to the bible in order to justify their truths?
The bible is unique in the sense that it begins before the creation of the world, teaching unto the present things of the Spirit; thereafter, prophecy tells of the end of the world and the after life. The Holy Spirit of God is unique in the bible; no other religion or philosophy espouses to the Holy Spirit. The bible is the most comprehensive book of life and it is truly the complete book inspired by God, our Creator.Of course, the Son Of God, Jesus, is unique to the Word Of God.
Christians worship one God and one Savior. Why are there so many denominations?
The problems are created when us Christians place emphasize on one scripture over other scriptures; having a personal relationship with Christ Jesus would resolve the problem of many denominations. Jesus writes His laws on the hearts of His Believers leading to a proper weighting and interpretation of each scripture leading unto His unity.
The above questions are the main objections for not becoming a believer in Christ.
