Role Playing Top 100 Questions and Objections to Christianity

The other day, me and this Christian brother of mine decided to start role playing through this list I found on-line.  We walk around the lake on a break at work (about 15 min) and I pull up these questions and objections on my phone.  We take turns handing the phone back and forth to each other, role-playing a skeptic in challenging the other person with one of the questions or objections below.  It is great practice for when we get that chance to really talk to someone!

Here are the top 100 Questions and Objections to Christianity.

1. “I’m as good as any Christian!”
