Questions you would like me to ask my seminary professors.
I know that sometimes it is frustrating asking simple questions to a theist regarding their religion. Especially if they are completely ignorant of what their religion actually teaches. I just wanted to see if there are any legitimate questions anyone would like me to ask my seminary professors on your behalf to relay back to you.

Question One:

Do they actually believe what they're teaching?

Question Two:

Have they no shame?

Boxers or briefs?

I've got some strong theories, but those could easily be cast aside in light of evidence.

* biting lip .... *really hard*

How about : "Everyone has doubts. What is the one recurring doubt that is the most serious for you ?"

or,

"If you were in active ministry, what prompted you to give up a church and go into teaching ?"

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein It is objectively immoral to kill innocent babies. Please stick to the guilty babies.

RE: Questions you would like me to ask my seminary professors.
Why would God say His Word was/is so important and should be heeded and then throw a massive hissy fit and do the whole Tower of Babel thing which confounded language of all of the people of the "whole earth" and scattered people across the "whole earth." As such, His Word has been translated and re-translated and translated again--all of which causes His passages to be added to, taken away from, or otherwise embellished based on the cultural understanding of the wordage of the scribe doing the translating. Seems kind of counterproductive and potentially detrimental to his followers as His book is his major way of communicating to us.

From Genesis 11:6-9

The LORD said, "Behold, they are one people, and they all have the same language. And this is what they began to do, and now nothing which they purpose to do will be impossible for them. "Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, so that they will not understand one another's speech." So the LORD scattered them abroad from there over the face of the whole earth; and they stopped building the city. Therefore its name was called Babel, because there the LORD confused the language of the whole earth; and from there the LORD scattered them abroad over the face of the whole earth.…

RE: Questions you would like me to ask my seminary professors.
If "free will" is such an important concept why is it that when anybody exercises it in a way he doesn't like they get punished (e.g. Eden, flood, Babel, exile, hell)? Is it really free will if you are under a threat if you make the wrong choice? If obedience is demanded, why the pretense of free will?

RE: Questions you would like me to ask my seminary professors.
"Why didn't Jesus convert one scribe, or one person who could hire a scribe, or someone who was interested in what he said but didn't convert but still had his words written down first-hand, or a "newspaper report" who would do that. Having ZERO first-hand texts is just embarrassing for you."

And Jesus's "brother" texts are absurd, don't bother citing them.

I know several people who have left religion because these kind of questions were asked. Be careful with your soul.

RE: Questions you would like me to ask my seminary professors.
1) How much does a typical seminary prof get paid? and
2) Do they have a defined benefit retirement package or do they have to wait until they get to heaven?

#sigh

Is this going to be on the final exam? Angel Smartass

Okay, for real: Would you flunk a student who studied this material and came to a different conclusion than you do?
