Why do Christians believe in God?

You can learn something about why Christians believe in God in this post:

Christians: why do you believe?

The question:

How do you reconcile the Bible as the word of god with the various inconsistencies, such as the punishments prescribed for sinners and the creation story conflicting with science, given the fact that certain doctrines, such as original sin require that the Bible be read as literal, not as metaphorical.

How do you get around the problem of the logical inconsistencies inherent in attributing god the traits that he is cited as having in the Bible, e.g omnipotence (the classic paradox of can something be so powerful that it can create a rock it can’t lift) or Epicurus’ problem of evil.

So…anyone care to help me out here and explain this to me? I just genuinely don’t understand.

The answers are interesting.

    I don’t see any problems. If God exists why would He necessarily need to follow the physical laws of the universe? If was subject to them, He would not be God. Pretty simple really mate.
    Epicurus riddle was solved long ago. Just google the many responses that solved his problem long ago. Hope this helps.
