Quoting Questions (41) Through (50) Of The " 100 Tough Questions about God And The Bible. "

By Sodium

In his book titled " 100 Tough Questions about God And The Bible, " author, Stephen M. Miller raises the following questions, given numbers (41) through (50):

" 41. The Bible says, " Prayer offered in faith will heal the sick."  If that's true, why aren't doctors out of business ? "

"42.  Jonah ' s prophecy that Nineven in forty days didn't come true. Why doesn't that make him a fraud ? "

" 43.  God ordered Joshua and the invading Jews to kill everyone who lived in what is now Israel--men, women, children, and even animals. Why would God do such a thing ? "

" 44.  Why does the Bible praise a man who sacrificed his own daughter ? "

" 45.  People in the early church were " baptized for the dead. "  Isn't that a bit late ? "

" 46.  Speaking of his return, Jesus said, " This generation will not disappear until all these things take place. "  That was fifty generations ago. Why do Christians still talk so much about the second coming of Jesus ? "

" 47.  Why does the Bible say homosexuality is a sin ? Don't science and our own observation suggest that some people are naturally homosexual ? "

" 48.  To feed Moses and the Jewish refugees, God sent enough white--flake manna and fresh quail to feed them all. We are supposed to swallow that ? "

" 49.  Why does the New Testament describe Samson as a heroof the faith ?  Almost everything he did seems driven by revenge or lust ? "

" 50.  God's prescribed diet for the Jews included crickets, locusts, and grasshoppers, but no lobster, shrimp, or soft--shell crab. What does that say about God's opinion of Jews ? "
