What is the greatest challenge to Christianity?

 

If I truly have faith, none of you can shake me...

What makes Christianity seem like a stupid idea?

I guess the greatest challenge is that there is no proof of any of it.

I mean, if you can prove to me Jesus is the son of God and that God, in fact, exists, then it would help the belief in Christianity a shit load.

but faith only helps the individual with it. it does nothing for those who need evidence in order to back shit up.

Side: No Evidence

Totally agree. The religious always seem to assume that, as an atheist, no amount of evidence will make me change my mind. The truth is completely to the contrary; just a single piece of real evidence would be enough for me to at least doubt my strong atheism and claim that the existance of a god is at least a possibillity. Currently though, I'm absolutely convinced that there isn't a god as there isn't a single smidge of evidence to point towards his existance.

Side: No Evidence

That's a good point and I think it demonstrates a fundamental difference between religious and non-religious people. There is nothing you can say or do or explain or show a religious person to change their views because they are based on faith. Even if we had even more proof than we do now for the big bang theory and could explain why it happened and could explain every scientific question they raised, which we very nearly can, they would still believe in god. And they admit that there is nothing that would ever change their minds.

But like you said, if you showed and atheist even a decent piece of evidence, you would completely shake his/her worldview at the least, and most likely he/she would sincerely consider the possibility of a god.

And I think that is the battle between fundamentalism/dogma vs. rational analysis that is at the heart of this debate.

Side: Stupid

That's very true and I really wish there was evidence. I mean, I have faith, so I don't need the evidence to believe, but I wish there was because no matter what I say, I cannot "convert" an atheist purely on beliefs.

"Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?

Then he is not omnipotent.

Is God able, but not willing?

Then he is malevolent.

Is God both able and willing?

Then whence cometh evil?

Is God neither able nor willing?

Then why call him God?"

First line is wrong so the rest of this rant is pointless. this is how it is wrong:

God is able to prevent evil, but he is not willing. why is he not willing?

because he wants us to choose for ourselves. he wants us to choose to obey him and his commanments. otherwise we would be a mindless bunch of robots programmed to worship. QED :)

Why did he create a world full of flawed beings, and want them to choose to be "good?" If he loves them so much, why does he make it so hard for them to avoid eternal hellfire?

I believe in the first one. There were three conceptions that God was (1) all-loving, (2) all-knowing, and (3) all-powerful. The conflict was that there was evil in the world, but why? Did he (1) not love us, (2) not know about it, or (3) was he not able to stop it? I believe the answer is 3. There is duality in nature, good and evil. God allows the evil because He can bring good out of it. I believe He is basically in a war with the Devil and Hell.

This is, for me at least, the biggest hurdle for all religions, not just Christianity. Christianity attempts to explain it all away with the term "free will". While free will may be used as a crutch to attempt to justify MORAL evils in the world like murder or rape, it does in no way justify the existence of PHYSICAL evils like earthquake, flood, fire and disease. I do not have the free will to choose to be the victim of a hurricane, tornado or earthquake. So, the question is that if a loving god exists, why did he create a planet that kills his most loved through the very mechanics by which it works?

Religion has traditionally been the ultimate explanation for everything. The more science explains, the less room their is for religion.

It drives me nuts when some stupid Bible thumper uses a banana to "prove" that God exists, because, well, a banana is the perfect food! It's called horticulture people! Bananas in the store have been selectively grown for hundreds of years to reach their current form. "Wild" bananas are completely disgusting.

Did you hear his insane apology for his ignorance on the human cultivation of the banana?

He claims that even though human effort has made the common banana as convenient as it is, it still proves god's existence because god gave humans the knowledge to cultivate it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XHaSZtf5I1k#t=1m31s

Couldn't find a link to the text of the apology if it exists, but the producers of the video are Christians allied with Comfort so they're not misrepresenting him on purpose or anything like that.

I disagree that the problem is lack of evidence. The challenge for Christianity is that there is no coherent ontology for God. All God is is a list of secondary and relational attributes. Thus, before one could even begin to discuss evidence for or against God in rational discourse, one would first have to provide a positive ontology for God.

This is why it doesn't make sense to compare God to mythical creatures like a unicorn for instance. A unicorn is a concept; it has a coherent ontology. Ask what God is. You will get statements like "love" or "power." But this is merely equivocating a nonconcept with no coherent ontology with a concept that has coherent ontology. To be an atheist, you have to assume that God has a coherent definition that can be disbelieved in.

But you can't disbelieve in a nonconcept. This is why I consider myself a noncognitivist and not an atheist.

Side: No Evidence

I'm been pointing this out for ages. If you take a room full of random Christians and ask them what "God" is you'll get varying accounts from all of them. So, you could say to yourself "maybe they're just ignorant, nonexperts." So you ask a room full of random Christian Priests and the same result happens "God is jealous" versus "God is merciful and loving."

And NOBODY knows what god is exactly supposed to be, in the technical sense. When you talk about a Unicorn you know it's presumably a mammal and therefore has blood, eats food, has hair, etc. On the topic of god no one has a clue what "god" is supposed to be. Just a bunch of appeals to magic.

I consider myself apatheist. I don't really care about "god" and besides if you can't define him properly, why should it matter to me?

Side: No Evidence

I can't find a problem with it, can you? Challenge me! To me, all you need is a little faith.

Those who choose to believe something unsubstantiated by proof are impervious to logic. Their arguments rely on faith.

Those with intuition of Epistemology and parsimony are impervious to faith. Their arguments rely on logic.

Thus, any argument between the two parties is irreconcilable. QED

those who are not open to accepting something will not. you can use logic to prove there is God. here it is "because everything else does not explain the creation of the universe clearly, God must have created it." What does QED mean?

Here's one:

Take the problem of a loving god which you've already discussed in this debate. Your answer to that was that god wants us to choose. However, if god knows everything (omniscience), then he already knows the choices that we are going to select in life. How can he allow evils to happen to us (evils which he already knew would happen ahead of time), leave us to make our own choices in the face of thses evils (choices which he already knew we would take), selectively punish people for making the wrong choices (wrong choices which he already knew they would take), and still love us? Before anyone's creation, god already had their whole life planned for them; including all of the hardships that they would inevitably have to face without having any choice in the matter.

How can a god who not only allows evils to happen, but actually knew before hand what evil it would be, how we would react and whether or not we would ultimately end up in heaven or hell before we were even created, love us?

The greatest challenge to Christianity is the Christians themselves. Many followers of any religion become so focused on the structure and rites of whatever organisation they have chosen to follow that they lose sight of the central tenets of what created the religion in the first place. Most of the world religions preach peace, love, and understanding at the core of their belief systems, and yet when people become fanatical they begin to focus on the differences between their religion and the world. Those differences become a source of disdain and distrust. Soon, the fanatic's religion is now reinforcing exclusionary behavior instead of the love and unity that should be at it's core. Eventually this grows into actual contention and ultimately, awful wars where the perpetrators justify atrocities in the name of everyone else accepting their version of what all of us should use to become beings filled with love, peace and compassion.

Side: Fanatacism

If all anyone ever believes in is black and white then there is no use for faith. But here's a question; If your Grandmother, across the sea, were dying of kidney disease and someone came to tell you this, someone that had seen her, would you not believe she was indeed ill without proof of seeing her yourself? You would believe...that is faith of sorts. The people who wrote the chapter and verse of the Bible were also there. Why refute them?

So the greatest challenge to Christianity is non-believers.

Hmm, interesting question.

I would believe that person for several reasons. First, they aren't making any supernatural claims like water turning into wine or people rising from the dead. Second, severe illness would be a horrible thing to lie about, so they're almost certainly telling the truth. Lastly, I would confirm this fact myself, and if they were lying they should be expecting to face my wrath.

Let me ask you another question. If a snake oil salesman told you he had a cure-all to sell for twenty bucks... and said he had seen it's healing powers many times with his own eyes... Well, you can see why we shouldn't believe everything without critical consideration.

"The people who wrote the chapter and verse of the Bible were also there. Why refute them?"

WRONG

NONE of the Bible is from a primary source. This is the first thing you need to know about the bible if you are going to try and find any meaning from it.

To your other example... No, I would worry for my grand mother until I could confirm her being sick myself. The possibility IS enough to evoke an emotional response due to possible danger of a loved one, but to believe it as truth is simply your own gullability.

Side: No Evidence
1 point

Did I ever say it was from a primary source? No, I didn't because it was written by many sources which tells me that the truth is there.

The example was to show what faith is and that it exists. What if you couldn't confirm?

Side: No Evidence
1 point

I agree. To believe something someone tells you, is merely to put your full trust into them. However, it really does come down to WHO told you and do you trust them and believe them? For as long as I'm aware, people have always used lies to get people to do something, no matter how disturbing the lie.

As for the bible, yes, it does have dozens of sources... but like everyone is saying, it was written so long ago and quite a while after the actual events happened. I'd personally say a lot of passed down stories through friends and generations til someone with something to write with decided to write it somewhere. The problem with something being told from person to person to person though, is psychological... with every person, the facts change. Whether from mishearings, misreadings, memory loss, the power of suggestion, and so on and on. So, it takes a really naive person to read the bible and believe EVERY single word within it.

That's a different kind of faith, it's a faith that can eventually be backed up by evidence, can be supported by eye witnesses, etc. etc. There are 2 types of faith: Trust in someone (I.E. Having "faith" in a politician to do the right thing), and belief without evidence (religious faith). The instance you gave is the first one.

Also, the New Testament was written about 40 to 90 years after Jesus died. Tell me something, what's something that happened 40 years ago that you remember down to the exact word? If 40 years, how about 20? Too long? How about 10? 5? 1? 6 Months! 1 Month! Can't remember it specifically down to the exact word? Well, guess we got a problem there.

Hypocrisy, both in the Bible and shown by Christians. I'm an atheist that goes to a Christian school, and all that I see all day is "Christians" committing "sinful" acts... it's ridiculous, and it's the main thing that drove me towards atheism (along with lack of evidence). I mean, the most conservative christian girl at my school is a preppy popular girl that spends all day (I'm a guy) making fun of other people. The most conservative christian teacher at my school is the single most arrogant, judgmental, ignorant, close minded person that I've ever met.

If the Hypocrisy died down, I wouldn't hate religion as much as I do right now.

Side: Hypocrisy

And that's a Christian School? Why are you attending that school? That kind of behavior would certainly fray my nerves. I KNOW I'd have to say something.

Here are four points. I think the biggest challenge in general is that it simply doesn't make sense. The point's been made the religion relies on faith, not logic. However, even religious people need logic to get through their day. If it looks like it's going to rain, you bring an umbrella. You don't have faith God will stop it from raining.

Four Things I Don't "Get" About Christianity
