#STRaskStand to Reason

Questions about why God’s rescue plan wasn’t more immediate and peaceful and whether God wants us to be gullible and doesn’t provide hard evidence as proof of his claims that he’s different from all the other false religions and charlatans out there.

* Why wasn’t God’s rescue plan more immediate and peaceful?

* Does God want us to be gullible? If he knows how many false religions, charlatans, and liars there are, why can’t he give us hard evidence as proof of his claims so he’ll stand out from the others?
