6 questions for believers

Here are six questions that ought to be addressed by those who believe in a  God of Abraham.

To the Christians.

1. If Jesus was the Son of God, why didn't he convince more people of his message? Surely if he really was the son of the Christian God of Abraham, not one person on earth would have missed the message.
2. Why is it that soon after his death, people couldn't agree on his nature, was he God, was he mortal or a mixture of both, and schism appeared in the Church? For example Rome seperated from the Orthodox church in Constantinople and today there are countless different offshoots. Why?
3. When Protestantism appeared there was no divine intervention to protect the Catholic truth. Why not?
4. Why cannot the Christian Churches agree on the role of women and questions such as contraception? Surely prayer would have brought an answer to all outstanding questions in the last two millenia. From the Christian God of Abraham there has been not a word. Don't you think that's strange?
5. Why do you put such faith in a book written nearly two thousand years ago, much of which has been passed down verbally from generation to generation and therefore open to ambiguity?
6. What evidence have you personally witnessed that there is a God rather than a consequence of nature?

To the Jewish community.

1. Despite the long held view that they are the Chosen people, the Jewish community have from the start been betrayed by their God of Abraham. Why persist with an ideology that has let you down time and time again? You surely can't still believe that you are being 'tested'.
2. For example, why or how did Yahweh allow the holocaust if he truly loved his people?
3. Why did the Jewish God of Abraham watch the destruction of Solomon's temple and do you really believe another will be built to house the Arc of the Covenent?
4. Why does the Jewish God of Abraham watch on as his people fight a never ending war for survival in the Middle East?
5. Why do you put such faith in a book written nearly two thousand years ago, much of which has been passed down verbally from generation to generation and therefore open to ambiguity? If the Jewish God of Abraham really was responsible for the Torah, why was he so modest about the detail of the Creation?
6. What evidence have you personally witnessed that there is a God rather than a consequence of nature?

To the followers of Islam.

1. If Allah is the Lord of Mercy and the Giver of Mercy, why Jihad?
2. Why do you not know whether to follow the Shia or Sunni practice? The Qu'ran, supposedly the Word of God,  doesn't tell you.  Why not? Does the Qu'ran and the Imams who study it contain any truth?
3. Why do you pray five times a day when it clearly doesn't work? Imagine the number of prayers since the days of Allah and look at Iraq, Syria, Libya, Egypt and Afghanistan today. Would you think that prayers have worked especially for Arabic speaking peoples when you can see the development, without Allah's help, in the western countries?
4. Where was Allah when the Moors were expelled from the Iberian peninsular by the Christian kings? Did he forsake you or is it the truth that He or She does not exist?
5. The Qu'ran was compiled by humans, ignoring the so called 'satanic' verses. Doesn't this compromise the premise that the book is the Word of the Islamic God of Abraham. Why was the Qu'ran written in Arabic only? Surely if it truly were the word of God, it would have appeared simultaneously in every tongue and been made available to every person on earth!
6. What evidence have you personally witnessed that there is a God rather than a consequence of nature?


For those who cannot submit to the questionnaire because to do so would appear to question their God, I say this: you really must question your ability to enjoy the gift of 'free will'. Your unwavering determination to observe blind faith, because that is what it is,  betrays any commitment to intelligence and humanity.
Consider this: if you take the measured view that there is insufficient evidence for the existence of God, then on the Day of Judgement a merciful God must accept some responsibility and act accordingly.
