I have come across several occasions Christians challenging non-Christians to read the Bible to "know the truth".
Before I read the Bible, I didn't think too much of it. If it makes Christians a good person, bravo for them. But after I read the Bible, my impression of it changed totally. It portrays God as an angry, egotistical, and often-time cruel being. The Bible itself contains many contradictions and ambiguities that opens it to many different interpretations resulting in different Christians denominations and cults.
Of course there are passages in the Bible that are wonderful to read but then there are just as many bad things written in it. I find it incredible that there are Christians who still claims that the Bible is perfect after reading it. I know of some Christians who questions the Bible privately but chose to put faith before understanding.
Far better it is for Christians not to invite non-Christians to read the Bible. This way, non-Christians will not view the Bible with contempt.15 AnswersReligion & Spirituality10 years ago
Is God really omnipotent and omnipresent? I can prove that he is either not omnipotent or not omnipresent.?
There is something God cannot do. Even by whatever logic you use, you will have to agree.
God cannot create himself.
If he can create himself (or as some of you will argue - he created Jesus) then he is not omnipresent because then Jesus, the God, would have a time when he did not exist. If God is omnipresent, then he cannot create himself because to create himself, he must not have existed at some point in time.
So, which would it be, omnipotent or omnipresent?18 AnswersReligion & Spirituality1 decade ago
