This is brilliant. I am astonished! As a Christian, it is clear to me that this is God's working! :-)

Objection: You Can’t Argue People Into Heaven!

“Just preach the gospel and stop trying to provide evidence or reason to persuade people.”  Many who say things like this seem to think if you present the message “You’re a sinner separated from God by your sin, God loves you, Jesus died for your sin and rose again, believe in him and you will be saved” that people should just believe automatically. No questions please!

Except Paul said to consult the eye witnesses and there are apologists dating back to the earliest days of Christianity. They must have missed that memo.

God Does not Care for Me: The Case Against God Dr. Paul Gould

Does God care for me? That question is a very personal question—and I think it is a question that simmers on the surface of our lives—and in times of trial, or difficulty, or pain—it intensifies—it becomes a very pressing question—and often, it might seem as if the answer is no. In fact, I think there are a number of powerful reasons that can be advanced against the claim that God cares for you and me.In this post, I want to consider those reasons.

Is Christianity a Body-Hating Worldview? by Peter Harris

First, it is important to concede for the sake of truth that within historical Christianity there has been an unfortunate and unnecessary form of extreme ascetism founded on a hatred and suspicion of the body....

Such radical practices, however, are not the teachings of Scripture. On the contrary, the Bible celebrates the value of the body as God’s creation and as an integral part of a unified concept of human being.

Why the Bible? by Ravi Zacharias

A good explanation of the Bible's uniqueness and why it's important for all of us.

The Framework Interpretation of the Days of Creation by Lee Irons, Ph.D.

While it is widely recognized that the Bible contains figurative and nonliteral language, it has been less widely recognized that the days of creation described in the first chapter of the Bible may also be plausibly viewed as a figure of speech. Many evangelicals are convinced that the days of creation are literal, twenty-four-hour days, but there are indications in the text that suggest that we are in the presence of another metaphor. Along with several other scholars, I hold to a nonliteral interpretation of the days of Genesis called “the framework interpretation.” It is called that because the days of creation are viewed as a literary framework

+Antonio Guadagno this page seeks to give a wide variety of views on a number of topics, we take our view of what constitutes to "Christian" possibly wider than how you would. We post both Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant material, YEC, OEC, and everything in between material, as well as material on a number of other issues that Christians disagree on. I make great pains to make sure the page doesn't have, in of itself, any views or opinion on any particular matter, the page is for distributing possible material, not for pushing any specific agendas, regardless of the managers' views. I make no apologies on this one I'm afraid. If you disagree with the article, that is absolutely, positively, perfectly okay. Use the opportunity to sharpen up your apologetic sword by engaging, +Marvin Pelaez seems to have a differing opinion, and he seems willing to engage with you. If all else fails, feel free to check out our referenced articles on young Earth creationism.

Christianity, The Worlds Most Falsifiable Religion by C Michael Patton

But the more I research, the more I find this to be the case. I believe that Christianity is the only viable worldview that is historically defensible. The central claims of the Bible demand historic inquiry as they are based on public events that can be falsified.

This is the best argument for non literal interpretation of the Creation story I've read, while still maintaining the integrity of its sacredness, or poetry with a purpose.
The Eternal Seventh Day, supported by Hebrews, was an interesting insight.

What if God commanded murder?

“If God commanded you to kill your child, would you be morally justified if you were to obey?” .... “no matter how one answers [the question] . . . the notion of an omnibenevolent God seems untenable.”

I understand. I just want to be practical and put things in the context of developing narrative. I'm saying this so that the fragmented acts are not seen apart from that developing story, which as a while has certain outcome.
So, in some sense, this is "end justifies the means" sort of a thing.
It's not like I am against all and everything an author says, but my point is that certain things God may ask is an exception from the rule... Story of Abraham is not the only story like that.
Take Hosea 1:2 "When the Lord first spoke through Hosea, the Lord said to Hosea, “Go, take to yourself a wife of harlotry and have children of harlotry; for the land commits flagrant harlotry, forsaking the Lord.”
Obviously this is neither a universal rule, nor a law. But it has a place in the developing narrative to illustrate something, or teach something, or achieve something...
I just wanted to add that so that we don't lose track of it.

A Response to the Problem of an ‘Evil God’ as Raised by Stephen Law by Michael Rundle

I hope to have shown that I take the evil god challenge seriously, as I think it should. However, since I have given good reasons for thinking evil god is completely illogical and, in addition to that, I reject the empirical experience of good and evil as pointing toward either a good god or an evil one I would suggest I have met the challenge as given by Law.
