This book raises some difficult issues on contradictions in our Christian religion. There are no contradictions in Bible, but there are contradictions in minds of most Bible readers. See the below excerpt from the book for some example contradictions. You need to read this book to set your mind free of contradictions.
This book raises some difficult issues on contradictions in our Christian religion. There are no contradictions in Bible, but there are contradictions in minds of most Bible readers. See the below excerpt from the book for some example contradictions. You need to read this book to set your mind free of contradictions. While there are contradictions in your mind, you are like a madman. You cannot operate properly, you lose, and your prayer is hindered: (James 1:6-8) "But let him ask in faith, without any doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, driven by the wind and tossed. For let that man not think that he will receive anything from the Lord. He is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways." You need your mind to be set right to withdraw from any slavery, to be successful both in this life and in the afterlife. You need to correct your mind. Read this book to completely overturn your understanding of Gospel, from pride of having Gospel like a Pharisee into humility induced by true understanding of Gospel, from following Gospel commandments like a law into a faith-based life. This book is truly amazing and mind-overturning. Letter kills but spirit makes alive.
In this chapter, I raised several questions about Christian religion which are hard to answer.
“Make my joy full…in humility, each counting others better than himself” (Phil. 2:1–3).
So we should count others better than ourselves.
But how can we count above us those who don’t know the gospel? Are they better than us who know the gospel and live accordingly to it?
Once I met with a rich woman. She asked me to have sex with her. I said, “Pay me one hundred thousand dollars if you want to have sex with me.”
A day later, she came with one hundred thousand dollars in a suitcase. Then I told her that I’m a Christian and would not have sex for money.
Why I refused? Because in 1 Corinthians 6:9–10, it says, “the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t be deceived…nor male prostitutes…nor thieves…will inherit the kingdom of God.” A male prostitute is a man who indulges sex for money. So I decided to not be a prostitute because it contradicts to the New Testament.
But despite my refusal, I wondered why God forbids this. This way, I could escape from living in poverty and from many trials and temptations in life.
I also wondered why God strictly forbids thieving. Isn’t it that money is more useful in the hands of believers? Wouldn’t it be better if we would seize or thieve money in order to use it for the kingdom of God?
It is scientifically proven that people think and are ruled with brain. The proof is simple: If a man’s brain is damaged, then his thoughts and behavior change.
I was not believing this scientific fact, being sure (according to a widespread Christian doctrine) that the mind of a man belongs to the soul or spirit and not to the brain.
But there were a few occasions when my own head was broken. Particularly, my head was sometimes hit by a frying pan as a punishment for following the gospel. That was causing my misbehavior, proving that our thoughts and behavior indeed are dependent on the brain.
How can we get away with this contradiction of Christian doctrine and proven science?
As such, I was living with contradictions:
I’m better than other people; I should count myself worse than other people.
I need money for good; I must not steal or do prostitution.
The conscience is located in soul; damaged brain damages proper conscience.
Thus I lived with contradictions in my mind. It was an unbreakable obstacle on my way. I was suffering an obstacle in every kind of situation, even when there were no real obstacles, because contradictions in my mind were obstacles.
So, I’ve formulated several questions hard for a Christian to answer. I indeed will answer these questions below.
Jesus has said, “But I tell you, don’t resist him who is evil; but whoever strikes you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also” (Mt. 5:39). I wondered, isn’t proper functioning of our mouth important for our ability to preach the gospel? Shouldn’t we protect ourselves in order to be able to preach? “But having food and clothing, we will be content with that” (1 Tim. 6:8). But how could we contend if we had no Internet access in order to preach the gospel? “But I tell you who hear: love your enemies, do good to those who hate you” (Lk. 6:27). Okay, we should love our enemies. But should we love enemies of the gospel?
