Top Ten Questions Atheists Could Have About Christianity


The Top Ten

1 Why is being gay a sin?

I'm a Hindu and I have this question too, because in my religion it is okay to be homosexual. I am. I just don't understand some things about why being gay is so bad. I'm not some crazy liberal either, so don't use that excuse. I'm republican. Let me ask you homophobes out there something...

What does being gay have to do with AIDS?!?! You guys are so ignorant! Anyone can get HIV, it doesn't matter if you had homosexual sex or heterosexual sex! It is a virus, it will hurt anyone, and it doesn't make exceptions for certain people just because they are straight! Please... just stop. I've had enough cringe for today.

I'm an atheist and the concept of sin is not in my beliefs. I would never ask why being gay is a sin. I would rather ask why gays are not accepted. I'm not gay but I can't understand why gay people are not accepted as anybody else. Especially when they rather use the word sin than acceptance to cover up their dislike. I think in a way that this is very hypocritical.

I think the only sin here is insisting that they are like the "third sex" or stuff like that. I'm still against the "marriage" thing. I believe that you can love the person of the same sex, but you can't have sex with the person. Most likely because it could give AIDS.

Aids was send by God to punish the gay people. God is punishing the sinners who don't want to procreate.

2 Will anyone who does not believe in god go to hell?

True atheists doesn't say or ask questions like that! They don't believe in god, heaven or hell. And if There is a hell I say : I rather rule in hell than to serve in heaven!

Say this person is nice, smart, kind, and has not done anything against the Ten Commandments but doesn't believe in Christianity. Would his person still go to hell? - AnonymousChick

Most Christians would say no, but that means their denning the bible. - ARandomPerson

I don't think so. It isn't the religion that can save.

Atheist don't believe in hell

3 Are atheists allowed to turn into Christians in the middle of their life?

I did this a few years ago. Its weird to think I didn't even know who Jesus was a mere three or four years ago. - keycha1n

Yes anybody can change beliefs at anytime but they have to honestly believe in it

Stupid question? Yes

Yes, they can. - Garythesnail

4 Are people allowed to say god's name in vain while acting in movies?

So, you are saying that because they didn't mean it in real life ( because they're acting ) it isn't a sin. But what about the people who wrote the script ( they were thinking it )? Even if their supposed thoughts aren't true, it means they are lying. The opposite of telling something or thinking something true is telling or thinking a lie. And is lying not also a sin? This actually proves that the concept of sin is crap and that it has no value.

They didn't mean it in real life, so it isn't a sin.

7 Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.-Exodus 20:7 (KJV) - Israelbooker

5 Would people who have been Christians but switch to something else after a long time go to hell?

So what you are saying is that for instance a Christian who decides to not believe anymore and switch to buddhism he will go to hell. His new religion will teach him that he can reach nirvana but that doesn't matter because it's for sure that he or she will go to hell. It seems here that fiction is a strange thing.

That is a good question... As far as I know about the religion, they probably will.

God loves all.Also atheist would not ask this they do not believe in good or he'll

6 If all sinners go to hell, would we all go to hell?

No, Jesus died for the forgiveness of our sins. If you believe in Him, and you're doing the best you can, than you're good. - Garythesnail

If that's true, I hope so! It will be some kind of eternal party.

Hell only exists inside your own head. - IronSabbathPriest

7 How do we know heaven and hell are real?

We only know when we pass away. The only evidence of heaven and hell comes from people that had near death experiences that reported seeing heaven, dead friends and relatives up there. - Pegasister12

If you don't know why believe in them? Like Socrates used to say : " What you don't know will not harm you " meaning, why bother?

I think it's a matter of faith. I strongly believe there isn't a heaven or hell. Just like I don't believe in anything spirtual/supernatural and religious related. - DUTCHlioness

8 What exact proof you have to convince me that God exists?

Thinking... still thinking... no answer. Oh, wait! Someone said " Read the bible and you will have proof ". No, I'm still not convinced...

9 Can I become a believer of god in my last minutes of life?

I think if you don't believe in god it is not possible to suddenly in your last minutes of your life accept that he exist. If you do believe it's because you have fear of death and that's not believing in his existence. It's just an irrational thought that cross your mind because fear is playing tricks with your mind. Meaning that you mind gives you doubts. And doubt if he exist or not is not truly believing.

That would mean that you " think " that you're an atheist but in reality you have doubts. Why should a true atheist suddenly at his last minutes of his life have doubts and fear something that he don't believe and know that it doesn't exist?

You can. But only if you truly believe it. God doesn't accept people who say that they follow him, but they don't act like it. - RiverClanRocks

10 If God is all good, then why is there so much evilness the world

If god is omniscient it means he knows the future and that means that the future will develop the way he knew. If the future shouldn't develop that way it means he didn't knew the future. If everything develops because he is omniscient it also means that everything happens necessary and if everything happens necessary it means that there is no free will. You can't change something that will happen necessary. And if there's no free will it means that people aren't responsable for their acts or sins. If god punish people because of their sins from which they are not responsable it would mean that god is immoral. The conclusion is : Or god is omniscient and also immoral and not good or he is not immoral but in that case he isn't omniscient. Logic says that god can't be omniscient and good if he gave free will to men. In more logical terms it means that there is no god and for that matter a god-given free will. That's why bad and immoral things are happening in this world. It's part of a ...more

You say that evil comes from humans ( I agree on that ) but when you say that it's because god's given free will that humans use the wrong way, you're saying as a matter of fact that god is evil. He created humans at his image ( meaning good ) and he gave men free will ( for what purpose if he knew that it could be used wrongly? ). It's like saying that he created humans that are capable of evil because he created them with free will. Where's the good in that? There's no logic in all that and that's why I'm an atheist.

God gives humans free will. Some people use that for good, to serve Him, while others use it for evil. Sometimes things take time to heal;it's all in God's timing. - Garythesnail

God gave us the extrodimary gift of free will

The Contenders

11 What happens to the people who pass away that have never heard of the Christian God?

They believe in a eternal heaven but what about all the people who lived in times before Christianity?

One of the many questions I had in mind before leaving Christianity. - SevenTreeTool

12 Wouldn't being in heaven get boring after a while?

Sure it will. Can you imagine an eternal ( never ending ) life where everything is perfect, no challenges to make your " afterlife " interesting ( no love rejecting. you see someone and you know that you will get her / him even if someone else is interested in the same person [? ], no work, no money because you will be able to get everything you want, no T.V., no social media, no music of your favorite bands... etc... People who believe in this life for an afterlife are really not aware that the life they are living now here on earth is the best one. Also, what about those people you didn't like here on earth? You can not love everybody because this would be not sane. Will you be forced to love them suddenly? Hoping for a boring life? Really, who wants that?
