The theory of evolution is often treated as the most serious intellectual challenge to Christianity, at least the fundamentalist kind , but I think there are some major conundrums in its most basic tenets.
OK, so God is all-knowing, all-powerful, and wants people to believe in him, but chose to create a being he knew in advance would rebel against him and undermine his plans. I just can't get my head around that. It seems like people would still be able to disobey God (through free-will) even if Satan wasn't around trying to lead people astray.
2) Jesus dying for the sins of the world
God had to sacrifice himself to himself to change a rule that he made? Who came up with that plan? Rube Goldberg?
Perhaps someone can explain it to me?
