Harris on the immorality of Christianity

Below is as sharp a critique of Christianity, its basic tenets and why Christianity does not offer and alternative, much less a more ethical view of morality that you are likely to find:

The most cogent point, and one that I have referenced frequently, is the problem of unnecessary evil and — take your pick — either the inability or unwillingness of an all-loving, all-powerful, all-knowing God to intervene. Harris says it in unequivocal terms: the God of Christianity is either impotent or evil.

  1. The biggest problem with Harris' argument, is that he isn't using the Bible or Othodox Christianity to explain Hell, but he gets the idea of Hell from the Bible-since that is where Christians get it from (gospels-words of Jesus).

    Christians do have an answer and context for Hell that Harris did not represent. We don't fall on the sword of mystery like Harris' claims.

    What is Harris' faith?
