RE: Questions you would like me to ask my seminary professors.
Question one: What is your favorite movie?
Question two: Have you ever had sex in public?
Question three: Why does spaghetti sauce give me heart burn, but not tomatoes?

Welcome back, Jason! Good to see you around.

My strategy of ignoring my problems until they disappear never seems to work out for me. ...I'll try to get around to dealing with that in the near future.

Why does a supposedly loving god allow this:

Do they actually believe what they're teaching?

Question Two:

Have they no shame?

I've got some strong theories, but those could easily be cast aside in light of evidence.
I like to compromise with boxer-briefs. But I will ask.

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 ?"
Well, I can't speak for your first question. But in regards to the second, it is simple. Many of the professors feel that their spiritual gifts are in teaching, not preaching. Some of my professors are quick to admit that they, although brilliant scholars, are terrible at preaching. Could you imagine Ben Stein being a charismatic preacher trying to knock the sin out of people? It's funny when you think about it.

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.…
I actually asked that exact question in my Old Testament survey class. Her response was complex. Simply put, she believes that the genres of many of the books in the Bible have been mistaken. When I get to my home computer, I will copy and paste my notes and applicable sources to give your question the attention it deserves. Thank you for your response.

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?
Good question and depending on who you ask you will get a different response. Not every denomination believes we have free will. Some hold to hard determinism where we are basically puppets for God's purpose. It was also a question that I brought up. I was quite the troll. I will gather my notes and post them for you.

What would convince them to change their mind on the existence of their god?
