justaskingquestions Posted July 8, 2018 Share Posted July 8, 2018 I've always struggled with this: if the word of God is our natural design, and anything else is simply a manipulative distraction put in the place by Satan, then why does following the Gospel feel so unnatural? Here are just a few examples out of many: If women are supposed to be subservient and inferior, why are the sexes equally intelligent and capable? If being gay is so wrong, why are people born gay, and why do studies show time and time again that being gay is natural and healthy? If pre-marital sex, masturbation, AND "impure thoughts" are wrong, then why is nearly impossible for anyone to not jack off or have sex before marriage *unless* they are asexual? If feeling malcontented with your life is wrong, then why do most people feel the need to always better their situations and improve themselves? If we're meant to commit acts of violence against those in our community who commit sins, then why do most humans turn physically ill simply at the sight of blood or gore? How can we be expected to follow through on stoning each other? All of these guidelines are supposed to give us the best life possible, right? The life God mean us to live, right? Then why do they shouldn't feel so damn uncomfortable? (The answer is obvious, but it's one that more Christians should consider.) 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
