Listen in as Christian Questions Host, Rick, and CQ Contributor, Julie, discuss two questions related to our recent podcasts on Bible contradictions and demonstrate a methodology that can be used to understand how to see how the scriptures compliment instead of contradict each other. Our conversation included: (2:40) Why wouldn't a book from God be flawless and therefore totally reliable? (6:10) Possible reasons for discrepancies between seemingly "contradictory" Scriptures. (11:33) The Bible is full of human sacrifices and killing. How can that be acceptable?
Listen in as Rick and CQ Contributor, Julie, discuss three questions on the purpose and impact of Jesus' death and resurrection on all of mankind. Here are some questions we consider in this conversation: 0:01:44 Jesus died over 2,000 years ago but nothing has changed. When do we stop getting sick and dying? 0:07:27 What does it mean when we say "Jesus is the ransom"? 0:15:36 Jesus' death paid the ransom price for Adam. What did his resurrection do?
The conversation continues from our weekly podcasts to specfically address listener questions.

Listen in as Rick and CQ Contributor, Julie, discuss three questions related to our recent podcast on whether or not it's God's fault we have evil in this world including: 04:42 Why do some people have a disproportionate experience with sorrow and evil that is not a result of their own choices and natural consequences? 10:18 Every generation has experienced evil, yet each generation still commits evil. How bad does it have to get for it to be "enough" experience for mankind? 18:53 Why do some thing God is a monster? To hear more on this topic listen to our full podcast Episode #1052.
Our conversation continues...listen in as Rick and CQ Contributor, Julie, discuss three questions related to our recent podcast on Tithing including: Does tithing belong in Christianity? Just because tithing in the Bible doesn't involve money, are you saying we should donate land or cattle instead? If it's true the Bible doesn't teach people to tithe money, why are so many churches teaching contrary to the Bible?
