Agnostics Debate Apologists and Usually Win the Debate

Children in Jerusalem.

I listen sometimes to debates between atheists and believers. I just listened to one last night between an agnostic and a well-known apologist. I would say the agnostic won the debate simply because it was the same old thing the apologist presented. That evil exists because it is somehow good for us in some way.

Wrong.

Skeptics want answers they will never receive from their intellect. Or from anyone’s else’s. The answer to evil in the world is Christ. There is no other answer. It is okay to debate we can learn much. Of course apologists know this. But to try to explain away all the evil by saying “God gave us free will” is nonsense.

No sane parent would place two glasses before her beloved child and say to the child..”Okay here is a glass of orange juice and a glass of orange juice with rat poison. I give you free will to choose which one you want.”

We are not kinder than God and God did not do what he is accused of by many. He did not place two glasses of orange juice before the human race: one mixed with rat poison. And say Dear human race that I love…now you CHOOSE which one you want. That is evil and God did not do this.

I read where one apologist tried to justify evil’s existence in the world by citing a case of a mother whose child died. But after so-called counsel she finally realized she would have the child again just for the love the child brought her. I would not want her for a mother.

What? She would do it again if she could? No mother in her right mind would say “Yes I am grieving my child who has died. But if I could do it all over again for the love this child brought me than it was worth it.”

That would be the depths of selfishness and empty of love. No mother would “do it all again” knowing her child would die. Just so the mother could experience love it was okay for evil to exist which evil caused the child’s death? This is what the apologist was implying.

The mother in this case was thinking only of herself and not of the child who died. I wonder if she would have this attitude if it was she who died? This so-called reasoning is not from God but from Satan.

No mother would do such a thing. A decent mother would deny herself and not bring a child into the world knowing he would die so the mother could experience love.

This is why the Lord went to the cross to die to destroy the works of the devil not justify them. Evil is bad, there is no good in it; it has to go. Yes God can work all things together for our good. But he still came to destroy the works of the devil.

1 John 3:8 (KJV) He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

This God gave us free will reason is the worst of all presentations to explain why evil exists. God would never give us free will to disobey him. He commanded us to obey him.

Earthquakes happen some apologists say because of tectonic plates. Really? Skeptics want to know why the tectonic plates are even there to start with. It is not tectonic plates it is SIN that is the problem. 

Is there an elephant on the floor? With some apologists there seems to be.
