Additionally, I'll comment on your question and also on your closing statement.
ANYWAY.. i'm not going to go through every question (your right about Christian divorces tho!!) the really important point here is WHY you feel compelled to attack peoples faith.. are you devoting the same amount of time & energy into fighting peoples beliefs in UFOs? or ghosts? arent these delusions harming our species?
Over the last couple decades, there has been a rise in religious expression in public and in politics -- not just in private or in church congregations. As you know, not all of this expression has been positive and some of it is quite destructive. In religious terms, it has been immoral.
This growth in public and political expression is stronger in the USA (where I live), but has also started to rise in other English speaking countries such as your own, New Zealand, and to a lesser extent Canada and Australia.
The troubling problem is that good Christians are not speaking up much or at all about the negative aspects of this public and political revival. Because of that, I feel personally compelled to do something to address this shortcoming including using my own freedom of speech to voice my concerns and to comment on Christianity itself -- a religion that has thrust itself into the public debate and into politics itself.
If you are active in your resistance of these negative tendencies -- to those using the cloak of Christianity for immorality including death, disease, and ignorance -- I thank you. If you are not, I can only ask why you do not feel compelled to stand up?
God does not give us miracles so that we can have faith.. We have faith and then recieve healing, salvation, eternal life etc.. I'm sorry but your hearts are hard to the truth, ask God to open your eyes.. He NEVER lets us down!
I have studied Christianity and a variety of other religions. So far, I have not been told clearly why I should invest in Christianity as opposed to one of the other religions.
I am not closed minded, and can be swayed. For example, there is a passage in Kings (1 Kings 18) that talks about how Elijah confronted the followers of Baal successfully. This shows that it is OK if your god makes itself known clearly and unambiguously -- without faith -- while Baal did not do so.
If you do not have a copy of the Bible handy, you can look this passage up yourself using BibleGateway.com; http://www.biblegateway.com
