Hey all, I just wanted to throw a few questions out there that you can try out on any believers you know.
-Do you think that good decent people deserve to go to hell?
If they answer yes to this, which they probably will. Then answer back with this.
-Ok, so you say that those people don't deserve to go to hell. So then answer this, let's say that those people didn't believe in god, and these people are good decent people. But the thing is they didn't believe in god, and yet they did good in their life or were a decent person. But yet according to the bible, god will send them to hell because they didn't believe. Does this make sense to you?
-Ask them about what they define as "sin". If they say sin is commiting crimes, rape, murder etc..., then say that you understand. Then proceed to ask them if people who murder, rape etc deserve to go to heaven.
Then they'll probably say no, then you may remind them that jesus says all sins will be forgiven if they just believe in him. Then point what's wrong with this logic to them by saying this, so if jesus forgives all "sins" including rape, murder etc.... Then that means that by that logic that all those people are going to heaven because they believed in jesus even though they raped, or murdered or did something really heinous in their life. Then ask them if they'd like to go to heaven knowing that murderers etc are in heaven since all they had to do was just believe in jesus.
-A good question that I just thought of recently would go something like this, you'd like this one and the person your telling this to would be all squirmy. Let's say that a week from now you found out I had passed away, then let's just say that somehow you found out that I'd gone to hell, how would that make you feel? Would you still believe in god if you knew I was in hell? Now that question right there is good for all of you out there who would ask your parent/s that question.
I know there's more questions out there, but I thought I'd throw up what I thought would be 3 of the most important one's I can think of.
