Why are Christian afraid to answer challenges about their beliefs?
Christians will spout of some self-righteous bullshit all over the place, even when they are clearly unwelcome, but when presented with direct questions about their beliefs, they refuse to answer them. Why is that? Are they afraid to examine these issues? Are they unable to answer the questions?

It seems to me that the truth should be able to bear scrutiny.

So you Christians who are so quick to cut and paste the writing of someone else, or Bible versus, why are you afraid of one-on-one debate?

Why don't you offer one? Try not to start on a note that's been argued to death a million times here in the last week, alone.

Have an original thought, and we'll discuss it, otherwise, search is your friend.

Re: Why are Christian afraid to answer challenges about their beliefs?
Time is something that only exists in the Material creation. The God that is most High is timelessness and does not reside in Matter.

What we call time is unmeasured by God, Most High.

--------------

There are lesser beings called "God" who cannot see the future, and there are entities called "God" who can to some degree or another.

Hope that helps.

OP..

Its simply because...

YOU are one of those HEATHENS who DARES to question GODS PLAN OF ETERNAL TORTURE??

I am sure glad I am saved...unlike YOU you evil questioner...

But all you evil ones who mock GOD and DARE to ask any questions like doubting that God made hell to torture you in will FACE THE FLAMES of ETERNAL AGONY as God SPITS you like VOMIT OUT of his MOUTH in his disgust at your unbelief.

He created hell for vile unrepentant evil sinners who refuse to accept Jesus.

All those ones who never heard of him will burn there to because they were born of Adam and thus LIVE in sin and DIE in sin and they CHOSE hell like all you who reject him DO!!

BURN in HELL you FOUL MOCKERS OF GODS HORRORS THAT HE HAS LINED UP FOR YOU...you will WRITHE in the FLAMES of his WRATH FOR REFUSUNG HIM!!

Just remember all you who MOCK...you CHOSE to watch your flesh peel away from your body in hell ETERNALLY..its YOUR own STUPID STUBBORN FAULT you SATANIC EVIL UNREPENTANT FOOLS!..the FOOL says in his heart "There ias NO GOD" and so HELL is FULL OF FOOLS who CHOSE yo go there!!!


DIE in your sins you worthless HEATHENS..DIE,,because Jesus loved you SO much you REJECTED him you deserve DEATH FOREVER IN AGONY YOU FILTHY SINNERS!

JESUS IS LORD!!!

I think because their beliefs are not logically justifiable. Their choosing to believe is completely irrational since there is no robust evidence that anything in the Bible is true. As Martin Luther purportedly said, "Reason is the enemy of faith."

I am answering challenges about my beliefs. You are ignorning this, and offering ideas on why we don't answer challenges about our beliefs.

Who is illogical, exactly?

Of course He knows the future. Why?
Revelation 1:7 "Behold, He comes with clouds; and every eye shall see Him, and they also which pierced Him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him. Even so, Amen."

Zechariah 12:10 "And I will pour on the house of David, and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look on Me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him, as one mourns for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for Him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn."

Wow, way to step right into the role that OP described! I mean wow, you really nailed it.

Afraid to examine issues? Check.
Unable to answer questions? Probably.

lol ? i'd rather the OP really just be straightforward in what obstacle they are getting hung up on so as to address it charitably, but it seems like they may be searching for a debate in earnest, and I would not be true to my name if I didn't at least offer.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 969156

That is an excellent question. It has been asked by Rabbis and their students for millenia. The best minds have not been able to answer how if God knows our hearts because He created it, how could He find fault? Pauls only answer was that we cannot know the mind of God.
Revelation 1:7 "Behold, He comes with clouds; and every eye shall see Him, and they also which pierced Him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him. Even so, Amen."

Zechariah 12:10 "And I will pour on the house of David, and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look on Me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him, as one mourns for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for Him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn."

A better question is why do non christians always question something they think is false and dont agree with? We're free to believe what we believe just as you are. And yet people feel they have to go out their way to discredit our beliefs.

This is easy, I don't know why you'd have a hard time getting an answer about this, but it might just be your aggressively annoying australian-ness.

here goes. I'm gonna bold it so you get the point.

God does not Create Hell. Hell (and evil) is the absence of God.

Meanwhile, between God Most High and lesser beings calling themselves "God" there are pockets of existence that are hellish in which one might find one's self, or one's spirit, trapped.

I hope that clears it up for you.
