I continually hear from your worshippers that you’re in the business of 'opening people’s hearts’ to your existence. Is there a specific reason that you never revealed your existence to me in this way?
The collection of writings called the bible looks an awful lot like other 'sacred texts’; on a plain reading it’s self-contradictory, filled with irrelevant arbitrary rules and wacky superstition. If you wanted people to believe in your existence, why did you allow yourself to be represented in such an underwhelming way?
Your followers can’t agree between themselves about how to interpret your pronouncements. People are killing each other because of disagreements about how to serve you. You’ve allowed this bloodshed and misery to continue for centuries, is it because you find it flattering?
If you had delivered specific, unambiguous, novel and falsifiable scientific information during your Jesus tour, such as instructions for how to create a cure for cancer, or an accurate prediction of the exact time and location of a planetoid impact on the earth, many more people would now be convinced of your existence and wouldn’t be making videos like this one. Did you drop the ball there?
While Jesus, why did you tell your followers that you would return to the earth within a human lifetime? If you didn’t mean this to be taken literally, why did you risk misunderstanding by not speaking plainly?
Do you really see all sins as being equally serious? And if so, shouldn’t we model our justice system accordingly? life imprisonment for a white lie etc.
Why doesn’t prayer work, when you specifically said
bq. for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
If you’re really all-powerful, how can your followers be sure that you’re not an evil god who is deceiving them?
