What The Thinking Atheists Gets Wrong About The Bible

Seth Andrews is just one of the globe’s leading atheist podcasters. In these clips he disparagingly goes over the tale of the Bible along with what it needs to state concerning question.

For the reasons you gave, and the fact the doctrine was created in the 5th century by Augustine, who was influanced by his former gnosticism; I dont think original sin is even a possibility. In fact it is taking a poem to establish a doctrine, when clear statements contradict that idea. Like the son shall not be guilty of the fathers sin. The soul that sins will die. And many others.

Also, if I'm not mistaken, "Satan" is not his name either, biblically. "The Satan" is actually a title. There is a lot of pop christianity understanding of biblical spiritual beings; and increasingly a naturalistic understanding that alagorises it all, is on the rise as well.

Today many gatherings, it seems to me, have a form of Christian naturalism in regard to: prayer, gifts, the indwelling Spirit, the real presence of Christ walking amongst the lamp stands, being taught by the Spirit, and basicly any biblical supernatural element historically within christianity.

I've wondered when exactly that started, the Roman catholic church, the reformation, modern evangelicalism, back further? I've not looked enough to be able to tell.

But on the other hand we also see a hyper spirittualization of everything present, as well. It seems like as long as the church has been around the kingdom of darkness has created opposite extremes in which to suck believers, and draw them away from a balanced and biblical walk of faith.

Another point that might be relevant to this. Jesus tells peter get behind me satan. There may be an aspect at play that is acknowledging the kingdom of darkness: powers, dominions, etc. The dark hierarchy. We are told they have sway over nations and areas. So aware of this the biblical author might be adding this element into it as he explains the coming fall of the king. I havent studied the subject enough to say, the thought just jumps out at me as very possibly connected.

"…we need to take a look and see how serious this threat is…" How is this a threat? To who? If it's a truth then it doesn't need you to defend it. Worry about yourself and stop trying to fix everyone else.

Not only that but, something often ignored or overlooked is that cursing the earth and bringing natural suffering was a blessing. Had he provided everything and they were at ease, in their sinfulness, they would not have turned back.

Look at a drug addicted teen or young adult. Living off his parents, fully provided for, how often do they come to themselves and get better?

It is not like it was something God wanted, or he would have created it that way from the start. Instead we see in the text it was subjected to futility in Hope's that we would reach out and find him. Like the parent who cuts off that teen, as much as it may pain them, they do so in hope that they will turn back and live.

There are a lot of presups in the whole argument; a low view of sin, an ignorant position on why suffering exists, a assumption we would make a better god, and many others.

If one is going to really examine the faith they need to really strive to understand it as it is, rather then going with whatever man made tradition they can most easily combat, to support what one already believes. Or importing their own biases into it without even really realizing it is happening.

I've said it before and I know my atheists object. But those who seek God must believe that he is, and that he rewards those who diligently seek him. In history almost everyone has been able to see what has been made and realise there is a God. We are the particular and intellectually selfrighteous generation who somehow think ourselves superior for rejecting the basic Truths that nearly everyone throughout history intuitively understood.

I think if more atheists would block out the hurting and hate filled voices of rapid skepticism and naturalism and scientism; to be skeptical but seek God honestly as the bible lays out; that they would receive more then enough external and internal evidence to place their faith in Christ. But everyone has a freewill and choice to make. Are we going to harden our heart, close our eyes and ears and tail against what we think christianity is, or take Jesus seriously and evaluate all the evidence provided both externally and internally that he is who he claimed.

I know many will just be jumping to argue with most of that. However I'm really not interested. Let those with ears to hear serious consider it for themselves and make a decision. Because your living for and trusting something. Take the evidence that for whatever that is as being ultimately reliable, and compare it to the evidence of the reliability of Jesus, whom was raised from the dead after being killed for standing fir love and justice and equality.

Just dont play these games you see online. God isnt found by arguing with people online. Be honest and humble in your pursuit and I promise you, God promises, He will show up. I've found that True in my own life, as have countless Christian's throughout the centuries. ❤

While the bible doesnt directly and indirectly answer every question we may have, it does in fact give a lot of answers to the major questions people ask.

And I might point out the earlier verse that was discussed. If one goes to God in faith and asks for wisdom, seeking in humility, he will give you wisdom and understanding of the bible as you grow. The milk of the word is understandable to everyone who honestly looks, and the deep things of God are made known by the Spirit to those who listen and mature. I've found both of those things to be absolutely True.

I remember crying out for wisdom with no doubt God wanted to give it, and indeed he did.

What do atheists think about?

I grew up in Oklahoma (now in Crossville, TN), and I remember when he was on the radio. Seth and Marbles in the morning, or something like that. Didn't realize he was an atheist now.

So, your pointing out flaws and misinterpretation of scripture that Seth read, and then turning around and using your own interpretation of scripture to fit your narrative. I watched many of your videos, and have enjoyed them and will continue.

Braxton, you would do better talking to the actual people. Do you reach out to your subjects?

Regarding disbelief and doubt, Gary Habermas’ “Dealing With Doubt” would be a great resource for someone struggling with these issues 🙂

I love your work and most of the time I agree with you but not on the Ezekiel 28 point- Please see Dr. Michael Heiser's lesson on this. I think He is closer than Robert Boman-

I first thought you were doing a bait and switch, but I listened carefully and believe that you really don't know you twisting word meanings to fit where you need then to be. Seth speaks of what the Bible says, and you speak for you want it to say. Faith is a measurement of reliability and consistency. One problem with both sides is they read the Bible looking for proof of their beliefs and loose the meaning and lessons.

For some strange reason, whenever I watch anything with The Stinking atheist in it, I feel a powerful urge to have a shower in the hottest of water with the most powerful disinfectant available…may be one of the reasons I right click his content and choose "not interested"…

I can almost hear him yammering away as the video disappears from my list…and I feel clean and pure once again…:)

What could possibly be wrong with walking away(willingly)from Christianity?,if it’s not “working”for you,fine!,or do you prefer fake believers??

Without the Holy Spirit in reading the Bible, always leads to a lot of negatives things, confusions and doubts. If you want to find truth, Jesus is there in the Bible, He leads the way. But if you just want to find faults, as atheists always do, then even a word or a sentence means a lot of translations or even become fallacies…. Informative video@BraxtonHunter, as always. ✝💞May JESUS CHRIST bless our journey.✌🙏✝

Why shouldn't you be like Judas? Wasn't he the one who made sure God's plan went along accordingly and whom we should basically accredit Jesus's atonement for our sins to?

If that is the case tell me more about Satan. Tell me his story and how you come to know it.

One sermon that has stuck with me was on doubt. The scriptural passage the pastor referred to was in Matthew 11:3, also Luke 7:19 Jesus then not then send a message back rebuking but encouraging John and helping to explain things to even him the 'greatest born of women'
Then, rather than call him doubting Thomas in another sermon he was referred to as honest Thomas, as how many of us can honestly say we would not make the same kind of demands he did? Once again though the Lord, responded to him in good faith and strengthened him, leading to such a great declaration of faith by Thomas.
Its like some of these people had Frollo from the Hunchback of Notre Dame as their pastors.
