1) If the Bible is divinely inspired, why has it not managed to convince the majority of mankind that it is anything more than a book written by people?
2) Christians believe that people of other faiths have been duped into thinking their holy books are from God when they are not. Can they admit then that this indicates that it is easy for people to be completely wrong on this issue and therefore it is very possible that the Christians could also be wrong about their own holy book?
3) If it’s divinely inspired, why does so much of it have to be explained away? (ex. slavery, sexism, genocide, scientific knowledge that is indicative only of the time period it was written in, etc.)
4) If an outsider were to ask most Christians if they extensively researched the holy books of other religions before deciding that the Bible was the only divinely inspired holy book, what would their response be?
5) If the Bible is divinely inspired, shouldn’t we expect more than vague prophecies that could be interpreted in numerous ways as having been fulfilled? If a book is from God, shouldn’t the prophecies be specific so that no one could doubt that what had been prophesied had come to pass exactly as stated? (Why do prophecies not tell us the names of the countries or people and the specific time and place something will happen?)
6) If the Bible is divinely inspired, why does it fail to communicate a clear message to mankind or even to its own followers? If it’s divinely inspired, why can’t Christians agree on what it says on even the most basic issues (obvious by the countless numbers of different denominations)?
