Recently, I had the opportunity to be on the panel for Skeptic’s Challenge. The panel fielded questions people had about Christianity, the Bible, Jesus, Project 4:4 and more. It was a lot of fun, and I had a lot of great conversations with people after the event as well.
Here’s video of Skeptic’s Challenge.
I did notice that my responses from the stage were framed differently than if I was talking one-on-one with someone. Not knowing the context/why a question was asked, I took a bit of a different approach and tone with answering sometimes.
Questions asked were:
- Can you prove conclusively the Bible is inerrant?
- Can you be saved after your physical death?
- In the election (2012 Presidential elections), was that God’s perfect will or was it God’s permissive will?
- Can you lose your salvation?
- What is your best evidence against evolution?
- What is the role of the nation of Israel today in God’s Kingdom?
- Why does the religious community appear to be against the scientific community?
- Why is Christianity right and all of the other religions wrong?
- Where do people go after they die, and is Hell a real place?
- Was the flood totally global, or was it local?
- Is it possible to have a relationship with God without being a Christian?
- If God made man and woman, why are some born intersex?
- If God is real, why does He allow all the suffering in the world?
- Why does Hebrews 6:4 give a warning about “falling away” if it is not possible to lose your salvation?
