  • Unanswered prayers, non belief in God & Christian response
    • Atheists believe that if God existed and was truly omni-benevolent,omni-potent and omniscient then we would answer everyone's prayers
      • Many people experience suffering and God seems to do nothing. This makes it easier for some to reject Him
        • Christians believe that God is doing what is best for them
      • Christians respond by saying that God hears all prayers, but sometimes the answer is NO
        • Other Christians believe that God may have answered the prayer but not how it would be expected. They believe God has an ultimate plan and must respond to prayers that fit the plan
    • Sometimes prayers contradict each other and so God cannot answer these prayers at the same time
