    Nobody today sins and nobody today needs salvation. Paul said that he would not have known sin were it not for the law (Rom 7:7). John defined sin as violation of the law (1 Jn 3:4). According to Ps 147:19-20 and Deut 4:8, only Israel had and was under the law. Paul also said that where there is no law, there is no transgression (Rom 4:15). That means that since nobody today has or is under the law, it doesn't exist for them. Nobody transgresses a law they aren't under and that doesnโ€™t exist = Nobody today sins. That's good news! Being innocent of the charge of sin, nobody today is a sinner in danger of judgement. Not being in danger of a judgement, we donโ€™t need forgiveness and salvation. Not needing forgiveness and salvation, we donโ€™t need Jesus. Not needing Jesus, we can lead meaningful, productive and fulfilling lives without todayโ€™s phony Christian nonsense.

    Matt 1:21 says Jesus came to save his people, which according to Mat 2:6, was Israel. Mat 15:24 says Jesus was sent ONLY for the lost sheep of the house of Israel. Thatโ€™s not us. 1 Chron 17:21 says that God sought to redeem one nation (Israel), not everyone. Heb 9:15 says that redemption was for sin done under the first covenant. That means Jesus died for Israel, not us. Galatians 4:5 says Jesus came to redeem those under the law. Thatโ€™s Israel, not us. Paulโ€™s mission was to the ethnos (nations) to call out the descendants of the tribes of Israel who had been dispersed among the nations, called gentiles because they had stopped being Torah observant and had stopped practicing circumcision. Thatโ€™s not us. Jesus only warned Israelites of the judgement and hell (Gehenna), and only Israelites are seen in the Revelation as being saved, sealed and redeemed. From beginning to end, the bible is Israelโ€™s redemptive narrative, not ours. People have simply tried to make it their redemptive narrative by reading themselves into the story.

    The entire bibleโ€™s redemptive narrative pertains only to those who were under the law, which was all old covenant Israel, not all humanity. Their story ended in AD70. We are not broken, not guilty and not sinners. We donโ€™t need Jesus to forgive us of anything. There is no hell for anyone today. There is no judgement for anyone today. There is no need for salvation today. We were never part of the bible story.

    Post- AD70 so-called Christians have been duped by a misappropriated redemptive narrative that appeared soon after AD70. Its been a circus of error ever since.

    "The first argument… cosmological…If there was a beginning to the universe, there must be a beginner" This is just the turtles all the way down problem. We have no reason to assume that by adding complexity to the known universe that it is understood any better. Who made the maker? This is a causal fallacy. The Big Bang is currently seen as the beginning of the known universe, there is no reason to assume we know anything about what happened before that, or even that our concept of linear time is relevant when considering "before" the big bang. For example, from the perspective of a light particle it takes no time to travel across the galaxy. It is happening constantly and we have no concept of how to think about that. We can't even wrap our heads around four space dimensions when mathematically we may exist in eleven.

    "The second argument is a design argument, it is the teleological argument, that there must be a designer, the universe appears to be fine tuned, and life appears to be fine tuned" This is a provincial form of logic that assumes that because our experience is that we can design a car then there must be some form of agency that designed us. This is a causal fallacy almost identical to the above. Appearances are not hard evidence.

    "The third argument is a moral argument. If there is one thing out there that is morally wrong then there must be a standard that defines what goodness is and any deviation from that standard would be evil" This is at least a false dichotomy of first, the existence of evil and good, then if granted that then what other choices are available such as the highest good for the one or the many, to lie to achieve goodness, to kill to achieve goodness, etc. . What is evil for the lamb is good for the lion. Anthropomorphic bias does not improve our ability to discern a first cause, only hard evidence.

    "Gravity itself needed creation" You do not actually know that, you assume that your personal experience on a macro scale can be extended down to a level you have no awareness of nor information about.

    "All of our thoughts are driven by physics" is a statement that assumes that physics drives all activity and that some physical laws have not been discovered yet, which is a certainty, even the activities once thought to be defined by gods (such as weather and the motion of the stars) in the past have been reduced to physics, this will continue.

    Did he say Jesus and and God are the same being? Or Jesus and the creator?

    How do you know Christianity wasnt a man made religion based upon manipulation and evil seeded roots. Not holy. I've asked God to give me an answer to this and he said Judaism is the truth.

    But the only way we are permitted to believe who and what God is, is under ancient middle eastern theology and concepts?
    AKA sand rat religion?
    Theology that says that humans are nothing put pieces of sh*t who deserve the eternal fires of damnation and separation from God unless they repent?

    If there is a Satan I think we just found him.

    Well hello, Frank Turek – how would you like to become God Almighty?
    Easy… In your left hand you're holding "point A", in your right hand you're holding "point B"
    To become God Almighty, create any "distance A – B" which isn't an outcome of CHANCE.
    With your kind of ignorance – no problemas, eh?

    6:35 Frank states all things by nature are wrong like slavery
    but then, why is it that in the old testament God permit slavery owning a human as property?

    I stopped listening when he said you need a god in order to know that torturing babies for fun is wrong. What a sick thing to say! Who on earth would think torturing a baby is funny? Go to the original people in some forest who never heard of God and see if they think its funny. Give me a break ……

    Because only He will help you speak for yourself!!!

    Because if you step among a crowd to proclaim a new ideology in your name, nobody will ever give a damn!

    Proclaim it in His name and suddenly, your chances look a whole lot better…

    So what was the reason for coming to faith in Jesus? Reading Josh McDowell books?

    This is ridiculous. You believe the bible is true because you ignore that parts that clearly are not. You believe that a god exists because you were raised to.
