Christianity Q&A

Compiling some of the questions often asked about God and Christianity I found very valid questions and how Christian should navigate the question. Hopefully these q&a can be useful reference in the future.

Question: If God exists, why there is so much evil in this world?
For skeptics, evil exists therefore Creator/God does not.

Christians can challenge this by first qualifying the question.
If evil exists, one must assume that good exists in order to know the difference between good and evil.
If good exists, one must assume that moral law exists to measure good and evil.
If moral law exists, one must assume theres an ultimate source of moral which is the objective basis for a moral law. Objective basis is transcendently true at ALL times, regardless of whether I believe it or not.
Objective moral values exists only if God exists, that's the reason we all agree killing person is unacceptable or mutilating babies for entertainment is inhumane.

Question: Why does God just made us to always choose good?
God cannot do that which is mutually exclusive and logically impossible, for example God cannot make square circles.
World where love is supreme ethic, freedom must be built in. A love that is programmed is not love, this is the kind of love is self-serving and conditional response. The man who wants to be loved does not desire the enslavement of the beloved.
Having the freedom to love when you may choose not to love is to give love legit meaning.

Question: How can you believe in a jealous God?
God's jealousy is a righteous jealousy. Its like in a married couple when a man/woman gets jealous when their spouse is seeing another person. In this case it is not bad to get jealous, because the man committed his life to his wife and the other way around.

Question: Do morally good people go to hell if they haven't heard of Jesus?
There is no morally good people, you could be better than other but we are all sinners. The real question is "Will God send me to hell because I did not believe in Jesus?" The answer is no. You don't go to hell because you don't believe in Jesus, you go to hell because you've sinned. The reason we are separated from God is because of sin.
