Coming late to this party. But since we have a true blue fundie amongst us I’d like to ask a few questions. And I honestly don’t mean to make these “gotcha” type questions. I’m just curious what your response will be.
1) Is god a boy or a girl? And if you pick one, in what sense, like if god is a boy, does he have a penis or a beard?
God is spirit, has however choosen to reveal himself to us as male.
2) Is it possible Evolution is one of god’s creations? Is it possible god “added” evolution to the universe after the initial creation but didn’t want it mentioned in the bible for reasons unknown/unknowable to us humans?
God has given the animals the hability to adaptate themself to the environment. Thats called microevolution. The bible is not a scientific book, therefore it was not Gods purpose to explain these things to us. He has given us intelligence to find out certain things by our own.
3) Did god give humans brains capable of advanced reasoning? And if so, why do you think god did that?
God gave us the hability of reason, so we might recognize and find him, and communicate with him, and have community with him, and become his sons and daughters.
4) Why did god allow human to use their brains to develop science and technology, then want them to NOT use it to try to explain his or her universe? (Point being, the brain and reasoning and science are pretty remarkable, a great gift from god you might say, so why would he/she/it not want us to use it to the fullest?)
Who told you he does not want us to use our capabilities ? If he made them, there was also the purpose to use it.
