  1. This Christian is telling lies, no one takes the punishment of anyone else , we are all accountable for our own sins , most christians have been decieved by the church .

  2. Don’t just rely on belief though faith is importany. Have EXPERIENCE That will srtengthen you. 1. Pray and jeep a prayer log to jeep track of whether. your prayers have been answered yet. 2. The pure in heart will see God said Jesus. 3. Don’t watch porn. Stop drugs if you do them and don’ get drunk or do autosexual or promiscious behavior. Cleanse your habits and life…you will notice the change. 4. Read a chapter in the Bible each day. Think and discuss and pray…learn to see God’s answers. Set aside some money you can spare in a jar to personally help someone hungry or homeless.. Forgive someone who did you wrong or ask forgiveness from someone you have hurt or slighted. Go to some place of worshp or visit different ones but go somewhere and worship. If you want God to give you vivid and miraculous signs in your life ask several spiritual people to pray that God will open that door but do not bare your heart to people who moght gossip or take advantage of you.. Maybe go to a mission bring a gift or offer to help and ask the pastor or priest to put an envelope with the request on the altar and say a prayer for you to be closer to God and his kingdom. Don’t expect the fireworks right away or ever but talk to others who have seen angels or sang with them or did mirscles or spoke in different tongues or had prophetic inspiration or visions or dreams or healed someone or won someone to Christ or found guidance in the Bible or saw angels or made an ascent to heaven or who had near death experiences etc etc. God may or may not open this door until you are ready but you will be able to recognize the fske from the real. If you talk to enough people and when you have an experience you will better recognize where it comes from. Many people get caught up in cults and fiction and fansyicism that gets them off the track which is to grow spiritually in a real relationship and walk with God and. Relationship with others. Remember many a person prays for an angel and God sends another person to be that angel to them. In fact God may use you as his “angel” to help someone else.or you may get to see or hear or feel a supernatural heavenly being but thank God also and especially when that angel or messenger is a person.

  3. So he gestured a dog to stop through what he claims was a divine command (in the name of Jesus of course) and it stopped, yet acknowledges there may have been an alternative reason for this. Then goes on to say that he believes it must have been God because other things have happened in his life, totally unrelated to this event.

    The mind is a fascinating thing

  4. I am grateful to say that I am a born again Christian and have been since I was 19…….the reason I believe we have the craziest ppl who call themselves atheists in this society is because of the fall of sin and the deceit of Satan! folks if you don’t know Christ as your savior then it burdens my soul to think that you are headed for a terrible place called Hell where the Bible says the fire is never quenched and the worm dies not! And if you are reading this and are an atheist then I pray that only the Holy Spirit himself reveals to you the true existence of God! Surely you have heard that in Romans 5:12 it says through one man sin entered the entire world! And you ask the question what is wrong with ppl? Sin is the answer! Ppl don’t have the Holy Spirit indwelt inside of them are lost and need the gift of Salvation! That’s why God sent his only son to live an absolute sinless and perfect life and the Bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:21 He who knew no sin became Sin for us that we would be made his righteousness! The Bible says in 1 John 2:2 he was made to be the propitiation for our sins! And not just for our sins but the sins of the whole world! This means you cannot be good enough to earn your way into Heaven and Christ clearly said in John 14:6 I am the way the truth and the life and no one comes to the father but through me! Acts 4:12 clearly states that there is no other name given unto Heaven or earth by which we must be saved as there is salvation in no other! Jesus clearly states that there is clearly only one way to Salvation and it’s him that’s it! There is no other way! He bled and died a terrible criminal’s death that he clearly did not deserve but we deserved! God owes us absolutely nothing except death and eternal endless suffering in a burning hell! But he made a way possible so that we can be forgiven for our sins and offenses against him! And if all we do is accept that payment he made on that cruel cross for our sins then we can have our sins forever forgiven and forever escape the wrath of God that is to be poured out upon those who refuse the atonement and finished work of Christ! If anyone is troubled about where they will spend eternity then please by all means comment right back to this so I can show you how you can come to know the savior Jesus Christ have your sins forgiven be born again and escape the wrath of God! God Bless everyone who reads this comment!

  5. God right now I lift up all ppl who calls themselves atheists and lord I know the very thing that is wrong with ppl and why we are so surrounded by ppl who deny your existence is because Satan is everyday coming up with newer schemes and tactics to deceive ppl so well! Lord as we get closer to your return the days are growing darker all around us as more ppl are going to reject the Messiah with now the craziest excuses possible! As Psalm 14:1 and 53:1 puts it only the fool says in his heart there is no God! Lord it burdens my heart to think that those who are lost and not indwelt by the spirit are going to end up in a terrible place called hell that is unending suffering in flaming fire and the wrath of God will forever abide on them! That will be far worse than any of the most gigantic problem experienced here on this earth! Lord right now I lift up everyone who is reading this and lord I pray in Jesus Name that if there is anyone who doesn’t know you or is troubled about their souls reading this then by all means please allow this comment to enlighten their path to draw them to yourself and gloriously be saved from that horrible eternal place called Hell lord that’s my prayer and that’s my hope! I pray that Satan will be completely banned from this comment right now in Jesus Name and Satan only by the authority of Jesus Christ and his word which I stand upon you are completely banned from this comment! I don’t care whether you like it or not I am praying for the lost to get saved as well as the atheists you think you have so fooled you fool! I am seeking to completely set fire to your atheistic harvest Mr.! you are nothing but a Liar with a capital L the father of Lies!!!!! A cheater! A deceiver! A joker! A murderer! A thief! A stalker! A depressant! And most of all a father of lies low down yellow dog loooooooser! And there’s absolutely nothing you’re going to say or do that’s going to change your future whatsoever! you are going to be cast into the lake of fire where you’re going to burn forever and ever and whether you like it or not we are all gods children and praise be to God we won’t be joining you……… So in Jesus name I demand and insist that you back away from us entirely leave us all alone get thee behind Jesus and don’t come back you hear me? Don’t come back ever and in Jesus name be gone forever your father of lies loser! Because you’re going to hell! Repeat you’re going to hell! And your time is short! Lord again please just reach out to the lost folks that read this comment! Lord if anyone is troubled about their souls then please I beg you may they waste no time commenting back to me so I can show them how to come to know the precious sweet savior Jesus who made it possible to escape the wrath to come! And lord if anyone who is reading this is in fact an atheist then lord it is only your Holy Spirit that can open their eyes to your existence and deliver them from this terrible lie that you don’t exist! God time is running out and ppl need to respond to the Gospel quickly before it is too late! If Jesus would forsake the 99 sheep go outta his way to still try to save the one remaining lost lamb then can you please use me to reach out to the remaining lost lambs! I want nothing more than to see your wonderful precious and holy name most high and glorified whatever that takes! Lord as your children everyday I ask that you please fill our hearts with much patience grace wisdom strength and obedience to accomplish your perfect will and as we as your children through these dark days seek the bright light of your face May we daily much exalt magnify and glorify high and lift up the king of kings and the Lord of lords much to the fullest extent in all we say and do lord that’s my prayer and that’s my hope! Please lord again use us and strengthen us to win the lost to you! As always God in the good times you are worthy to be praised and we’re going to give you all the glory with thanksgiving in our hearts for you giving us all things to enjoy and in the bad times we’re still going to do just the same lord because you are Jehovah Jireh our provider Jehovah Nissi our banner Jehovah Ropheka our healer and the perfect physician Dr. Jesus Christ Jehovah Shalom our wonderful and blessed prince of peace! And the God who comforts us in all of our afflictions! You are the alpha the omega the beginning and the end! The first and the last are you! The absolute timeless God the eternal God the infinite God the Holy God the righteous God the beautiful God the Rose of Sharon the buckler the captain of our soul the dayspring from on high the daystar the bright and morning star the lily of the valley the light of the world! Lord thank you so much for your death on the cross for our sins! Romans 5:8 says God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. And also John 3:16-17 says For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life! For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. Yes lord you are worthy of all our praise worship and adoration! Thank you for your unfailing love toward us and for saving our souls from the pits of Hell! And Lord no matter how fiery our trials can become lord just giving you all the praise and thanksgiving will cause us to become overcomers and more than conquerors! And as always no matter how painful or even unbearable our temporary sufferings can become still Romans 8:18 paints just the perfect picture of just how small and temporary our troubles are compared to eternity as it states that our present sufferings are not worthy to be compared to the glory that shall be revealed in us! And I also know that 1st Thessalonians 4:16-18 day is coming For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words. Also 1 Corinthians 15:51-52 tells us that Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. And also Revelation 21:4 day is near and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes and there shall be no more crying death sorrow neither shall there be any more pain for all the former things have passed away and all things are new! What a day that will be! When my Jesus I shall see! When I look upon his face! The one who saved me by his grace! When he takes me by the hand and leads me to the promised land! What a day! Glorious day! That will be! Just a few more weary days and then I’ll fly away! To that place where Joy shall never end! I’ll fly away! I’ll fly away oh glory! I’ll fly away in the morning! When I die hallelujah by and by! I’ll fly away! By and by when the morning comes! When the saints of God are gathered home we will tell the story of how we’ve overcome! And we’ll understand it better by and by! Sing the wondrous love of Jesus! Sing his mercy and his grace! In the mansions bright and blessed! He’ll prepare for us a place! When we all get to heaven what a day of rejoicing that will be! When we all see Jesus! We’ll sing and shout the victory! O victory in Jesus! My savior forever! He sought me! And bought me! With his redeeming blood! He loved me ere I knew him! And all my love is due him! He plunged me to victory! Beneath the cleansing flood! And as Titus 2:13 puts it we are waiting for that blessed hope of the glorious appearing of our lord and savior Jesus Christ! I’m kinda homesick for a country to which I’ve never been before! No sad good byes will there be spoken! And time won’t matter anymore! Beluah Land I’m longing for you and someday on thee I’ll stand where my home shall be eternal! Beluah Land Sweet Beluah Land!!!! Yes lord what a wonderful beautiful glorious and victorious morning that still lies ahead for all of us who belong to you and are called according to your purpose! Forever all our pain will be forever forgotten ousted and vanished in the presence of our lord and savior Jesus Christ! Yes lord please use these reminders to set all of our minds on things above and not things down here! and finally when all is said and done please just multiply and pour out all on our days ahead with much smiles satisfaction and laughter unimaginable sunshiny happy days and Joy unspeakable! Also please fill each of our cup till it overflows! Finally please just remind us we as brothers and sisters Will be in much prayer for each other love one another dearly and will never give up on one another as long as it takes and I pray all this in his precious and holy name amen…….:-)

  6. Maybe this guy should test his faith, trust and disillusioned brain by putting his hand out in front of a charging lion and then test his faith. I guess he will get his answer….. But hey he said god is waiting it out to prove his point.
    Let some of my die hard believers die so then everyone will believe in me for sure.

  7. concrete proof for the existence of god the universe cannot be just there this goes against the laws of science something cannot come from nothing therefore the idea of creation so the idea of god if you have a better explanation please do

  8. Marcel, It would be interesting if you would ask questions about and give examples of how their God is imperfect and what you would have done differently. For example: An infant is getting raped. Is God watching and if so would they just watch too? Attacking the justice and morality of God is the most effective method of questioning why would anyone worship a God that allows this to happen. Any God worth worship would instantly punish the true evil humans do to each other.

  9. I can give two encounters for belief. I’ve encountered both good and evil in my time. It all depends on what you want for your life. If you want quick results in your personal life go with evil. But If you go with good it’s a snail pace.

  10. you seem lost study the bible some more. Look up who is god. I think it might help you more with your filming and better questions.

  11. America says we’re not a perfect union but our laws work the best that they can, Jesus (Zeus) seems to say the same thing…but he’s all powerful…so he chooses not to use that power cuz of rules God has to follow…as an act of survival…. this is why this white dude is an avid Christian, Jesus more closely relates to him then I do

  12. his proof of ‘god” is that a dog ran at him and he put is arm out and the dog stopped??!! Dog expert advice “claim your own space. Putting something out in front of yourself (in this case his arm) will make you appear bigger and be more in command of your space. What this tells the dog with your body language is, “I don’t want your space, I just want this space that I am in.” Maintain your very calm and assertive state; this energy creates a barrier that automatically demands the dog’s respect by letting it know that you are not afraid.” sidenote: with all the horrible atrocities going on in the world every minute of the day….THIS is where there is “divine intervention”. for the sake of humanity, please wake up from this kind of self-centered thinking. “I was so important to (insert deity of choice) that an angel was sent to protect me from a dog running towards me and barking” (to hell with with the countless number of children that are being raped, brutalized and murdered at this very moment”.

  13. The reason God let all humanity be condemned one mans transgression is so He could save all of humanity through the sacrifice of one man Jesus. Everything God does has to be just and legal. God was pulling a fast one on Satan. : )

    1. “The reason God let all humanity be condemned (sic) one mans (sic) transgression is so (sic) He could save all of humanity through the sacrifice of one man (sic) Jesus.” I’ll try to interpret your poorly constructed sentence.

      So, what you’re saying is that the pathetic little deity that you believe in but can’t offer any evidence for is a crappy manufacturer and it blames its creation for its own incompetence, then it has to come up with some absurd excuse to forgive its creation.

    1. I’m reporting you Nate. You can’t go around spamming every one of Marcel’s videos with the same comment and none of us gives a damn about that absurd link to the same kind of baseless claims that you make.

  14. damn. I haven’t the time to recount the times this guy repeats himself or says the same thing over and over. Like “the sky is blue” and “blue is the sky.” “God is the god because god is god.” I have seen a few of these videos and all of the interviewees do the same because there ARE no more talking points…it has to be repeated…they MUST repeat what they have heard or read while doing the REqUireD mental gymnastics to make it fit their personal narrative.
    Developed bodies/undeveloped brains.

  15. Pathetic…just pathetic. Can’t even get a spiritual experience right. Morality comes from experience…and empathy…over the course of many lifetimes. The Gregorian calendar is flawed. The God of the bible is a fabrication…if you look at it objectively. written by men to manipulate men for money and power. A poorly written history book. The ark of the covenant…they haven’t located it it….another christian trying to re-write history.

  16. Marcel, I say this all with love…but you’ve got a lot of questions for Christians. It makes my heart feel for you, because I used to feel a lot of similar things. Then, my eyes were opened, and my heart was softened. I won’t get into my whole story and it doesn’t make sense to a lot of people…and I understand it definitely sounds bizarre to someone who hasn’t felt like they’ve experienced God in their life. I get all that. I have been on both sides of the fence. But in a lot of your videos you ask why God hasn’t shown you He’s real. Have you ever thought he’s provoking all these questions in you to do just that? He didn’t show me Himself one day and poof I was saved and a believer….no no no…it was years of Him pursuing me, and one day, it finally clicked. The only thing I can relate it to, is when you have that “Ah ha!” moment…where something was so clearly in front of you, but you missed it…and you keep asking yourself, “How did I miss it?” So, why not you? Your heart isn’t open friend. You’re so intent on arguing and disproving that your ears are closed and heart is closed. I truly think with all the questions you ask Christians in all these videos, it shows how much you really do care. If you truly thought it was silly, you wouldn’t invest this much time in it. Your soul is hungry and thirsting. Instead of investing your time in disproving Him, why don’t you invest time in researching. Research and learn, go to church (for educational purposes)…even if your motive is to disprove Him, still do it. It will give you the answers you’re looking for and hey, at the end of it, you can disprove it to yourself, or maybe you find what you’re looking for and get to experience Him. I have a huge heart for you. I wish I could reach through the computer and hug you. I think the biggest question to ask yourself is why you are so intent on disproving Him? All said with a loving heart Marcel. You’ve got a lot of questions, and I want them answered for you…but you also need to be OK with the fact we will never know all the answers…even atheists do not know all the answers…atheism requires faith as well… faith in the big bang theory, which has not been proven…faith in change of species, which has not been proven either (yes animals have evolved, but no evidence of change in species has ever been proven….go ahead look it up, I know that one peaked your interest lol ). I encourage you to do a lot of research and really dive into it….approaching Christians and interrogating them on why they believe what they believe isn’t going to be as helpful to you in my opinion. Every Christian is going to have a different answer for you, and we don’t get it right all the time. The Word gets it right, and God gets it right…this is why I encourage you to do research. I would encourage Tim Keller’s, A Reason for God or An Invitation to the Skeptic by Tim Keller…these are good first steps. He answers a lot of questions you have in a way that is easy to understand 🙂 Best of luck friend. Jesus loves you more than you know…even if you don’t love Him. One day I hope you get to experience that love. (Again, I say that with a loving heart and tone, not condescending)

  17. Who is to say these dogs were not taught to stop on command because God knew this man would remember this experience and contribute it to the Lord God to tell YOU this story? The Lord God has infinite wisdom. The Lord God sees and knows all.

  18. I simply love the way people are so full of arrogance, should we believe in God or debate about the authenticity of God. Well God wont help them. But to prove all the accounts written in the Bible and supporting texts are accurate there is more evidence than can be counted. But for those who are looking to WIN arguments, and not HEAR the truth, the Word of God become a question that needs to be pondered. This is the hallmark of Arrogance, and when God Almighty reaches his mighty hand to remove that Arrogance, it is a painful and humiliating experience. No one should mock or challenge God, these kinds of videos are very very wrong. But its for God to do his thing, not for me to tell you not to make such videos, I know he will do his thing, because i have personally encountered the Living God, and understand why he is called the Living God. If you want to know about God, why dont you try praying, instead of mocking him.

      Pondering evidence is the hallmark of intelligence, not arrogance. The hallmark of arrogance is assuring us that the living, all-powerful creator of the universe takes a special interest in your life. Why must we rely on evidence anyway? Why can’t this God just make himself appear, and put an end to any further speculation? Is it because God only resides in the imagination of man?

  19. living ,existence is temporal so how can god exist outside of time . weird religious logic . So many falacies and writing existed since 320bc .Silly god creates the entire universe but can’t simply can’t forgive mankind without a blood sacrifices.

    1. living ,existence is temporal so how can god exist outside of time . weird religious logic .

      God would have to exist in a higher dimension…a dimension independent of the limitations of time.

  20. The argument from ignorance fallacy … ” it’s so complex, it can’t be understood .. so a magical God created it, who didn’t require being created…” ..an answer with absolutely no explanatory power, answering a mystery with a another mystery which can’t even be logically tied to any scripture or Bible or religion .. a useless fallacious argument fabricated to feel good about his chosen religion .. that works equally well for any religion or God.

  21. Once again, a man making excuses for the god of the bible that’s MANMADE. Read it again Honestly and ESCAPE this MADNESS of trying to save god with Manmade excuses. He or she wouldn’t need your help anyway. And he said he was there to encourage others in the FAITH. If it were TRUE one would not need encouragement. Any kingdom of heaven is within us. Not in the books that simply show what MEN think God thinks ! And as was demonstrated in this Video continues to this Day! I Know. I was like him too!

  22. The universe is too complex to come into existence, but god isn’t too complex to have invented it, how can that be? If the universe is too complex to exist itself then surely god who invented it is even less likely ,if you apply the same logic.

        1. I’m asking how we can determine that something is too complex to exist without an intelligent designer. Wouldn’t we need to compare the supposedly complex, intelligently created thing to something that was not intelligently created in order to establish its complexity?

  23. Nobody can prove that God exists but the reality is that Mike V. wants to help the elderly, homeless and widows because he thinks his God wants him to do it. That’s a good thing whether it’s based on a mistaken belief or not. He improved his own life and now he’s helping other people. So in his case, adopting Christianity was a good thing and proving it as a fact (or failing to do so) is beside the point. It might be a fact that any good religion (such as Christianity or Buddhism) tends to make people better – in which case, since we know that religions can have this effect, what’s the secular alternative?

    1. The secular alternative is that “Honesty is the best policy” If you have false information (false beliefs)……… you will come up with false answers to your problems.

      Does religion make people better? Or does it just make them think they are better?

    2. Nobody can prove that God exists but the reality is that Mike V. wants to help the elderly, homeless and widows because he thinks his God wants him to do it.

      May not really be a reliable secular alternative, But misleading people dosent help people. Lower, spiritually incompetent beings may need a starting point…..but that starting point should be meditation, contemplation and empathy….not something insidious like religion!

  24. Proof of god — the guy tells a dog to sit, and the dog sits. Give that guy a Nobel Peace Prize — he proved it — god exists. Then he didn’t trust his god to protect him enough to walk back the same path home where the dogs were. Pretty low standard of evidence. I don’t think it would pass scientific peer review. Really? That was his number one?

    Proof of god — he was sleeping, and felt someone was laying on him — this is one of the Hypnagogic and hynopompic exeriences (HHEs) that accompanies sleep paralysis (SP) and is well studied. Throughout history, auditory, tactile, visual, and presence events have been recorded (for example Edgar Allen Poe) and is being studied in modern times. It exists across all times and all cultures, and is a natural part of the evolved cognitive mechanisms of the human brain. His specific example is often called “Incubus” (people used to think a demon was sitting on their chest), and is due to breathing difficulties while sleeping. There are several peer reviewed studies done on these events, including functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging studies. Interestingly, the term “Nightmare” did not refer to just any type of bad dream, but only to specific bad dreams related to HHE events, such as Incubus and Intruder sleep hallucinations.

    Proof of god — he woke up, and something was after him. This another example of an HHE called “Intruder” and is also well studied and documented. It consists of a sensed presence, fear, and auditory and visual hallucinations. It is suspected it comes from a hyper vigilant mental state while trying to sleep while one afraid someone might attack them.

    Proof of god — Complexity of Universe. Nope. To go from simple things evolve into complex things is evidence that simple things evolve into more complex things, and there is no link to a god.

    Proof of god — the occurrence of extremely rare events. Nope, just evidence that extremely rare events occur (like an egg, getting inseminated, growing up to be an adult, and then winning the lottery).

    God — lives outside time and space. Funny. God used to live in the trees, then people walked in the trees, and no god. God used to live at the top of mountains, then people learned how to make it to the top of mountains and no gods (Moses going to the top of a mountain, to talk with god and get stone tablets). Later god was supposed to be in the clouds, and then there were airplanes — and no god was to be found. Then god was supposed to live in space, but then there were space ships that went to space and advanced telescopes observing the galaxy, and no god. Now god exists outside of space and time. See a pattern? God is always unseen, and hidden somewhere where people can’t get to, hidden so well just like something that was never there.

    Proof of god — stories in a book, just like all the other stories of different gods in different books. The guy is confused about other religions, and when writing came about.

    Proof of god — mental gymnastics required to apologize for the argument of evil and his death cult.

    … and several other items of verbal diarrhea. Little to no critical thinking skills applied by this guy. Terrible. He did have a large list of items though, just a poor list. Lots of mental gymnastics.

    All things a normal child that has not been inculcated could figure out easily on their own. I think this helps indicate the time period when the “brain damage” occurred — during childhood. This is why many say indoctrination of children is child abuse.

    The worst crime of religion — discouraging critical thinking skills and teaching people to think so poorly and to so easily fall victim to their own personal biases. Bad religion! Bad! Go sit in a corner.

    1. If you are to understand the great mystery…you must get beyond the limitations of the physical reality. Religious nuts are caught up entirely in the physical aspects of this reality….don’t make the same mistake!

      1. > “…the great mystery…”: how people in 2017 can not overcome their own human cognitive biases and continue buying into logical fallacies and weak religious and emotion based arguments

        > “…get beyond the limitations of physical reality.” Nonsense combination of words.

        > “Religious nuts are caught up entirely in the physical aspects of reality…”: 1) “entirely” is going to an unnecessary extreme, 2) Religious nuts are victims of religion and of naturally evolved cognitive mechanisms often called human biases which religions encourage when the should be discouraged

        > “…don’t make the same mistake”: religion is the mistake: skeptical thought, critical thinking, the knowledge of human biases, the application of countermeasures to human biases, the avoidance of rampant logical fallacies, avoiding faith-based belief and instead using careful evidence-based belief whenever possible is the cure.

    1. lol I think they kick him out military.. this guy should listing to himself.. there is no free will,because every thing time you use your free will card to stop yourself from doing something good/bad you are making a sin. because the by product of freewill is sin. In heaven there is no free will and no sin,So if there no free will and sin how did the devil sin the first place. ??

    2. Who let this person out of the mental hospital .

      you think you are funny? let me hand it to you, what if there is a Hell? do yo want to spend your real life there for eternity? this temporal life is just what it is – it is temporary

  25. So, to this guy going to parties, smoking, drinking and doing drugs are all sins for the mere sake of it (?) I mean, sure, if you do all that as part of a selfish lifestyle where you don’t care or help anyone else and live to your own pleasure, i can see what he means, but if you have no further information about a person and all you know is that she enjoys having a good time (partying and using whatever substances helps her feeling ok) what exactly does that mere info tell you about her?? Can you say, from that alone, that she’s a bad person? Of course not, one can be into partying and still be a fantastic human being, there’s no rule stating otherwise, so again i must ask: why are drinking and partying (etc) necessarily sins in and of themselves??
    That’s the sort of backwards mentality that christianity creates in people. It turns them into cruel judgemental assholes that judge the book by its cover and feel proud about it!

  26. He answers the problem of evil by citing free will and god can’t intervene and stop a child from being abused. But his earlier example that an angel gave him the power to stop 2 Dobermans from attacking by simply raising his hand contradicts that. Why can’t an innocent child have that power to stop from being molested?

      Its all about choices and experience. It should be obvious that God dosent interfere with human relations. Christians are infinitely stupid. But this reality only makes sense if you understand that we are here for the experience.

    I’d say this was a Christian succeeding in defending his belief in God. Credit also to the interviewer for being fair, polite and posting this video even though this guy had an answer to all of the questions put to him. Not everyone may accept those answers but this Christian man didn’t waver. More debates should be like this one.

        1. What do you mean with “resorting to name calling”? Him “Dobermann” commanding being a miracle or prove of god? All other “stories” / “claims” show he needs treatment and/or some serious education because he is totally fact-free, not that he defended his belief in god successfully! Are you trying to say he convinced you?

          1. I’m simply saying that I found this video to be done fairly regardless of which side one is on. The name calling was directed at your comments, “weak mind,” “BS,” “stupid” and “jello gelatin” for brains. That’s not civil discourse but is instead a shaming tactic meant to keep people from speaking. Silencing ideas we may oppose shuts down communication. Shutting communication of ideas is the first step to totalitarianism.

            1. John …. no intent to name calling. But what would you call these (dangerous) fantasies? And if you take a closer look at what many of the preachers “preach” – and religion proclaims as true – I do find that shameful! When do you start being uncomfortable with the mix of what is preached, what is a scam, what is believed, what is fact free, what is true, and most important what implication on people and their lives it has? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kttVCbTrDLw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WxlS79Q3EXk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PduvBp5JBEs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UAlFvzofdA4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fuH0B3ouw98 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NK2MLmbO4JQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AdH2DGSXjss Etc., etc., etc. And these are just random examples and there is MUCH more and worse! So you try to tell me that what they spread is just fine and cannot or should not be opposed? That would be a shut down conversation and means silence compliance to such religious nonsense. Not with me…!

  28. So it’s MORE likely that a being which we have no evidence ever existed intervened as opposed to the dog simply being trained to stop by a hand motion or command? That’s a GOOD example of why a person should believe? There are multiple other reasons for why a dog would do this, not the least of which is that it had second thoughts when he showed aggression and dominance towards it! When theists defend their beliefs, this is what we get. Completely ridiculous assumptions with no rational thought.

    I have personally done this EXACT thing with attacking dogs on multiple occasions and not once did I choose to believe that God intervened. In one case, a huge rottweiler actually bit me (slightly) on my chest. But, after I commanded him to stop and hit him squarely in the chest as he was attacking, he stood there, acknowledged my lack of submission and fear, and walked away. I was lucky. Running would have been useless. If he persisted we would have fought.I was lucky he didn’t want that either

  29. lmao, first thing that came to mind: “Jules: This was Divine Intervention! You know what “divine intervention” is?

    Vincent: I think so. That means that God came down from Heaven and stopped the bullets.”
