Questions (31) through (40), as raised in the book titled, " 100 Tough Questions about God And The Bible " by Stephen M. Miller, are being quoted below, as they precisely appear in the book:
" 31. Why did Jesus seem to paint God as a genie waiting in heaven to grant our every wish: " Have faith that you have already received whatever you pray for, and it will be yours " ? "
" 32. Some respected archaeologists say Jericho was a ghost town by the time Joshua got there. What evidence is there to support the Bible story ? "
" 33. Why did Joshua order a man and his family stoned to death and burned only because the man took a few valuables from Jericho--a city the Jews had just destroyed, killing everyone ? The man ' s family hadn't done anything.
"34. Daniel 's prophecies about the Greek Empire track nicely with what happened. Isn't that a clue that someone wrote it after the fact--as history instead of prophecy ? "
" 35. Was God okay with polygamy ? Some of God 's favorite people--such as Jacob, David and Solomon--had a harem of wives.
"36. The only rule God gave Adam and Eve was not to eat fruit from the tree of knowledge about good and evil. What does God have against people knowing the difference between right and wrong ? "
" 37. The Bible says " sons of God " had sex with human women who gave birth to giants. Doesn't that sound a little like Greek mythology ? "
" 38. Would a loving God really put a good man like Job through horrible suffering just to test his loyalty ? "
" 39. Psalm 44:23 says, "Wake up, O Lord! Why do you sleep? Get up!" Does God catch Zzz's ?
" 40. " We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God--those whom he has called according to his plan." How would you explain that idea to a Holocaust survivor ? Or to just about anyone at a funeral ? "
