Different Races Created: Caller thinks the caller about Adam & different created beings is on to something, she agreeing w/ him & not Steve.

Young Earth Creationism: They have a new teacher in a Christian school is a Theistic Evolutionist, & caller has been leering about old earth & just wondering why Steve doesn't believe it. "Days" has meaning different meanings, he's learned.

Calvinism: Would it be unjust for God to make a group of people who had no possibility of salvation, & throw them in hell? Isn't that the same think as you saying that God just created the devil to be a tempter & then God punish him for it? Isn't that the exact same thing?

God Creating Humans: So God took a gamble by creating us, not knowing if we were going to not pass the test of not eating the forbidden fruit?

Grace over the Law: Are we still supposed to be absolutely obedient to Christ even though we are under grace, which Martin Luther believed we were under.

Mosquitos & Plagues: Did God create things like Mosquitos, Flies & plagues/diseases?

God Creating man from Dust: Man might've existed in a physical form but not a spiritual form.

Age of the Earth & Human existence: If the earth as old as a lot of people think it is, how come there's not more of a record of people being here beyond 10,000 years ago?

Bible throwing curve balls: I really believe in the fundamental essentials of Christianity, such as Jesus Christ &, the main & plain things, but then the Bible just throws weird things out there that we have to believe like literal creation, people burning in hell, & God creating Satan. Can you help me with the weird things that it seems to teach?

Age of the Earth, Dinosaurs & Man: If the earth is only 6,000 years old, & we supposedly lived alongside the Dinosaurs, how come they didn't devour us? When were they killed off, during the Flood?

2 Global Floods: There of course was Noah's Flood, but I heard from 2 preachers recently that there was a global flood before Noah's, somewhere at the very beginning of Genesis, but I can't find it. Can you tell me where it is? [Genesis 1:1-2, 6:1-9]

Admiring God's Creation, but not Creator: Buddhist caller says that everything exists, no matter paradigm you live in, has merit of by its creation in itself. [Romans 1] (A lot of snap, crackling, pop going on here!)

A New perspective of Genesis 1: Caller was listening to a program that says the reason Genesis 1 is there is not to give a literal interpretation of Creation, but that there's only one God, & He is it. [Genesis 1]
