Quoting questions (91) Through (100) Of The " 100 Tough Questions about God And The Bible " As Raised By Stephen M. Miller.

By Sodium

The last ten questions, as raised by Stephen M. Miller in his book entitled " 100 Tough Questions about God And The Bible " are being quoted below, for the benefit of those readers who have no access to Miller's book, at all, but have profound urge to know and learn, like me, from Miller's critical thoughts:

" 91.  The Bible says there's just one God. But Jesus said he's God's divine son and there is a divine Holy Spirit too. How could there be just one God, yet three. "

" 92.  Paul and other Christians in the early church spoke in " heavenly languages. " Why do most churches not allow it in their worship services, when it is clearly taught in the Bible? "

" 93.  Paul said, " Women will be saved through childbearing. " Not saved by Jesus ? What about women who can't have children ? Or who took Paul's advice not to get married ? "

" 94.  Who should we believe ? God, who said in the Old Testament, " an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth," or Jesus, who said in the New, (Testament )  " turn the other cheek ? "

" 95.  God ordered murderers executed. So when Cain killed Abel, and when David had Bathsheba's husband killed, why did God let them go ? "

" 96.  Why do so many Christians try to impose their beliefs about abortion on those who do not agree with them ? The Bible says absolutely nothing about abortion. "

" 97.  Why Christians think Jesus is unique when ancient religions are full of stories about supposed gods or leaders being born of a virgin or under a special star, performing miracles, and even rising from the dead ? "

" 98.  Why do Christians insist that Jesus is predicted in the Jewish Bible, when Jews don't  seem to see him there ? "

" 99.  Even if there is a heaven and hell, why do Christians obsess over it ? Hasn't God already decided who goes there ? "

" 100. Why do Christians work so hard trying to figure out all those visions in revelation when someone as smart as Daniel could not even understand his own end-time visions ? "

Final Words:
In the next two weeks I have to decide on the course of action to follow that may help the dedicated readers the most from Stephen Miller's book, " 100 Tough Questions about God And The Bible." My intent in doing so is to provide the readers with the rationale Miller has used effectively in the answers he provided to each question of the 100 questions he has raised. Reviewing or quoting all the 100 answers Miller has rationally provided, may take me more than two years to complete, based on the assumption that I can review only one answer for one question per week. Whether to go all the way in reviewing and outlining every answer of the 100 answers provided by Miler or just review and quote some of the answers is a tough decision to make.. I must be honest and say that I am not certain which course of action to follow at this point in time. That's why I feel that I must be well aware of all the difficulties I may encounter in the process of reviewing and quoting Miller's answers to his 100 tough questions. The difficulties must be assessed before I can even dare to start reviewing the 100 answers.
