Christianity asks us to accept:
- Our ancient ancestors were told to not eat a fruit, but did it anyway, and now every person who has ever lived since then is sinful and fallen from God.
- Everything, including humans with our many defects (and vulnerabilities) were created by a perfectly all-powerful, all-knowing, and infinitely far-reaching being, and he said it was "good."
- This same being, being infinitely powerful and knowing, cares about what job we get.
I am still compiling and will soon be lining up scriptural citations for the applicable ideas. Let's see if I still remember my Bible!
This is where I need your help. Can you think of some interesting things that Christianity (or just the Bible) asks its believers to accept? I am looking for doctrines, historical and scientific claims, moral imperatives, etc. Please list them in the comments section of this post or email me at doubtingeric(at)gmail.com. Thanks!
