Default I'm having a lot of doubts about the Bible! Please HELP!!!

Well, I'm 19 years old and have been christian all my life. I never had a problem believing in everything I was told or read of the Bible. But now, I am having a lot of problems believing. This is driving me crazy and I;m desperate and confused yes confused.

Sometimes I think (God forgive me) that the Bible is just another ancient book with a lot of myths and superstitions. Sometimes I think that the stories of the Bible were somehow copied off of other ancient myths (but told a little different). I see all these more ancient poems and myths from all over the world with very similar stories and get very confused I mean, is it just another of those. Also a lot of other religions have very similiar believes but somehow are consired fake by christians,

Also, some things in the Bible are just sooo very hard to believe. Some don't even make sense. Like: the flood, the Creation , the virgin birth, the serpent, the after life, and what the heck almost everything.

Why does the Bible say so many things that contradicts itself. Like people sleeping with other people, kings killing and being God's favorite still, God letting satan roam the earth and hurt us etc..



HELP please I am in a very big desperation.

Please don't think that doubting your faith is a bad thing. You're not doing anything wrong, you're just asking questions, which is a completely normal, natural and good thing for a human being to do. I'm not going to tell you what conclusion to arrive at; that's up to you and you alone. But don't let people make you think that doubting and questioning are bad things. And don't let anyone tell you to stop either. Keep asking questions. And keep thinking.

Sounds like you have been spending too much time listening to faulty arguments from atheists.

Get on you tube and google people like Gary Habermas, Josh McDowell, and other Christian apologists and learn WHY the gospel is true and the bible is historically accurate. Tons of good information. Also look into "answers in genesis" website.

"Sometimes I think (God forgive me) that the Bible is just another ancient book with a lot of myths and superstitions."
That pretty much sums it up.

Ask yourself this:

"Does it matter to me whether or not what I believe is true?"

If you decide "no", then close your Bible & pray.

If you decide "yes" then keep reading and sooner or later it will dawn on you that the Bible is the incoherent rantings of bronze age goat herders & cannot possibly have been inspired or written by any god. If you are brave enough to follow that thought process then good on you, but I suspect you are not.

Its your conscience speaking to you.

You are going to the rational side of human belief, and my hat is off to you for finding this all by yourself.


Hopefully if you become Agnostic, your family is rational and therefore won't resort to bigotry to intimidate you into staying.

Best of luck my friend.

IMO religion was the answer the ancient people gave to life's mysterys, e.g. why there is sorrow in the world (satan) or how life began (creation)


But if you want a religious answer then I'll try my best from the religious knowledge I have.


God flooded the world to punish everyone as most people were wicked.

God created life because the world was empty and he wanted something 'interesting'

Mary gave virgin birth because if she wasn't virgin then it would mean God is a person and that means he isn't anymore powerful then the rest of the people.

As for the snake... I don't know

There is heaven and hell because God realized that not all people are sinners, so the good people with faith can go back to Eden (from which their ancestors got kicked out of)

I got no idea about the king thing.

God let Satan live because Satan used to be his favorite angel and he could use him as a test to see which person is good enough for heaven.

Satan produces counterfeits of God and the gospel message. The purpose is distortion to avert people from the narrow way. The Quran didn't come onto the seen until much later, and copies many of the things from the Bible. But note that historical and archaeological evidence supports the Scriptures as belonging to the Hebrews. I recommend some sites carm.org and gotquestions.org. Answers many common questions. There is a God and there is an accurate account. The God of the Bible, did release the Hebrews from Egypt. The things that God told the Hebrews would happen, was true. Each plague that God dispersed over Egypt represented God's Sovereignty over the Egyptian false gods. Osiris (the Nile was his bloodstream) - God turned the Nile into blood. Heqt the fertility goddess was pictured as a frog. Seth was the god of cultivated plain - hence the locusts and gnats plague, the plague of darkness was God's sovereignty over the sun gods Re, Amun, Aten, Horus, Amun-Re..... the death of the firstborn was God's sovereignty over Osiris the god of resurrection and deity of Pharaoh. Note this was also just retribution for Egypt's drowning of the Hebrew children many years before.
