Why do Christians Bother Others with their Faith?!

Why do Christians Bother Others with their Faith?! Are they power-hungry? I have sometimes wondered why atheists bother others with their atheism.

5 Questions Every Christian Should Learn How to Answer

5 Questions Every Christian Should Learn How to Answer 1. Have the New Testament documents not been corrupted? True enough, we hadn’t had the possibility to copy and paste the documents back then.

Why they Persecute you?

why will they persecute you Persecution, you know? I don’t really like this word. Not that I deny that there is persecution in this world. No, more because many of us use this word in the most inappropriate situations. Let’s be honest here. Many of us who can afford to watch this video or reading this article experience no real […]

Do I have the Holy Spirit?

Do I Have the Holy Spirit? Have you ever wondered whether the Holy Spirit lives in you or not? I know I have! When I became a Christian the whole concept of the Holy Spirit was baffling to me.

‘Divine War’ in the Old Testament

Divine war in the bible, genocide? Utterly Destroyed Intro I have touched on this subject, differently, several times before. Divine war is a confusing subject. How can a God of love command His people to kill others? How can this be seen as ‘divine’ while it more or less looks like genocide. First things First Before we discuss the topic we […]

Why do we Need Apologetics?

why do we need apologetics? [Part 1] Go to part two In the last video I already touched on one aspect of the importance of apologetics. I know, I am a bit strange. On the one hand I say that I will not use it, to much, in online debates. But on the other hand I believe it is very […]

Silly Christian, How about Obesity?

Oh boy, this video is going to cost me some followers…. How about obesity? Or in other words, how about living an unhealthy lifestyle? Do we, as Christians, have anything to say about that? And if so, are there consequences for those who are mistreating their bodies? Nissan Patrol Well, before I dive into this […]

Silly Christian, isn’t God Against Capitalism?

Some words seem to carry an enormous load. Capitalism is such a word. Democracy is another one. In a previous video I already touched on democracy in the sense of freedom. In that video I also said that a Christian should promote freedom. Freedom of speech, religion and the freedom to have property. But now […]

Silly Christian, Does God even Bother About Our Carbon-footprint

Short Answer Short answer is yes! That is it, you can watch something else now. Bye! Longer Answer Not satisfying enough? Okay, there is a slightly longer answer as well. God is the Creator of all things and as such He is concerned with the world. We can read the creation account in the book […]

What is God Like?

Christianity is against freedom of speech… Right?

This accusation is a wide spread, and often celebrated argument against Christians. True enough, we have seen examples in the past where people were not allowed to believe or to say what they wanted. Blasphemy, criticism and disagreement within the ruling church was a perilous undertaking. However, before I continue I would like to quote […]

Christians are Anti-Vaxxers!

I have heard this accusation on the internet and it kind of intrigued me. This video is going to be a little longer than normal because I want to be a bit more precise in my explanation. Am I Anti-Vaxx? Am I an Anti-Vaxxer? Are Christians per definition Anti-Vaxx? For me personally I can answer […]

Scandals in Church

How much I would like to deny that things go wrong in church, I cannot do that. Church is a gathering of often a messy group of humans. People from all layers of society, people with their short comings, people who still drag their sin loving nature with them. However, Christians also believe that they […]

Christianity is just a Crutch for Weak People

This is what I thought about Christianity before I became a Christian. What a bunch of losers. They need an invisible friend, an invisible daddy to comfort them in this tough world! Now, when I look back at that time I only partially changed my mind. Let me explain what I mean. You see, you […]

Definition of hypocrite according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary: 1 : a person who puts on a false appearance of virtue or religion 2 : a person who acts in contradiction to his or her stated beliefs or feelings So I am sure there are many hypocrites in and outside the church. The Bible calls hypocrisy […]

What is Sin Anyway?

Religion Cause Wars

Silly Christian, the only thing religion does is cause wars! Actually you can not strictly say that this is the fault of religion. It is more accurate to say it is our sin that causes wars. In many cases it is about greed, lust, power, and tyranny. Even when a country goes to war to […]

Christians make Such a Fuss about Homosexuality!

O NO! What am I doing!! Am I really going to talk about this? That isn’t even silly… It is MADNESS! Nope, I am not a homophobe. Actually, I love people. I am, what you would call, a people person. But since this question or argument pops up so now and then, I thought to […]

Genocide in the Bible

You’ll find the link in the description. LBRY does not censure or alter content and guarantees freedom of speech. […]

The Bible is Written Years After the Actual Events

Doesn’t the Bible Contradict Itself?

The Bible is full of contradictions, right? Still, those silly Christians believe this not to be a problem! Introduction I became a Christian around 1995 and have studied the Bible ever since. To say that I never found one strange thing would be a lie. Sometimes I read stuff I didn’t understand or things that […]

Why Do You Believe the Bible?

Silly Christian, why do you believe what the bible says? It is ancient! Introduction to the Bible Yes, the Bible is ancient! So much is true.

If God is a God of Love how can He Judge too?

Questioner: You say that God is love right? Jurgen: Yes. Questioner: But God will judge as well, right? Jurgen: Yes, of course! Questioner: Silly Christian, if God is a God of love how can he judge too? The two, judgement and love, are actually connected. Judgement proves God’s love. Many of us are thinking about […]

How About Other Religions
