Questions (71) through (80) are being quoted below, exactly as appeared in the book titled, " 100 Tough Questions about God And The Bible " by Stephen M. Miller:
" 71. The Bible says if parents don't beat their children, they do not love them: " Those who spare the rod of discipline hate their children. " Really ? "
" 72. Why do Christians say the prophet Isaiah predicted the virgin birth of Jesus 700 years ahead of time ? Bible experts say that Isaiah was talking about a child born during his own time--and that " virgin " is a translation mistake. "
" 73. Jacob had an all--night wrestling match with an angel ? That's got to be a metaphor, right ? "
" 74. If God's so compassionate and wise, why did he condone slavery ? "
" 75. Why should we believe about grounds for divorce ? Moses, Jesus, or Paul ? They each gave different advice. "
" 76. The Old Testament penalty for raping a virgin: the rapist had to marry his victim. How is that not twisted ? "
" 77. Why did Ezra order Jewish men who married non--Jews to divorce their wives and send them and their kids away ? Not kind. "
" 78. Jesus said, " If your eye--even your good eye--causes you to lust, gouge it out and throw it away. " Wouldn't that leave just about everyone with a couple of extraholes in their head ? "
" 79. Jesus said, " Be perfect as your father in heaven is perfect " ( Mathew 5:48 ). Isn't that just a little too much to expect from anything short of a celestial being ? "
" 80. King David wrote, " I have never seen the godly abandoned or their children begging for bread." Was that a wishful thinking, a promise from God, or a clue that David needed to get out of the palace a little more often ? "
