Questions 21 through 30 are being quoted below precisely as given in the book, " 100 Tough Questions about God And The Bible " by Stephen M. Miller:
" 21. How on earth could the Red Sea have parted so Moses and the Jews could escape from the Egyptian army ? "
" 22. Fire and brimstone destroyed the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah--and Lot 's wife turned into a pillar of salt. Evidence ? "
" 23. How could Moses have spent forty years in the desolate badland on the border between what is now Israel and Egypt, with 2 to 3 million refugees ? That's a bit like Chicago ( population ) in Death Valley ( in U.S.A. ) "
" 24. How could killing a goat get rid of a person 's sin ? "
" 25. When bachelor Paul told women to be quiet in church and always do what their husbands say, was he really speaking for God--and to women throughout all time ? "
" 26. Why do Christians say hell is a fiery place of eternal torture ? Bible scholars say hell is just an English word invented to translate Himmon ( Hebrew ) or Gehenma ( Greek ), the name of a valley on Jerusalem ' s south side.
" 27. Why would a loving God condemn anyone--even humanity ' s worst offenders--to never--ending torture in fire ? "
" 28. Shouldn't we be a tad skeptical when we read that Abraham and Sarah had their first son, Isaac, when he was 100 and she was 90 ( year old ) ? "
" 29. If God knows everything, why did he test Abraham 's faith by asking him to sacrifice his own son ? "
" 30. Why do rich people think they're going to heaven, given what Jesus and James ( one of the disciples who wrote The Bible ) said about the rich ( people ) ? "
