This is an 8-page response to a video entitled 10 Questions Every Intelligent Christian Should Answer, which should actually be called 10 Reasons Christians Are Delusional Troglodytes. If you want to watch it, find it yourself, because I'm not linking to this piece of trash.

Zealous and snarky as usual, so if that offends you, don't read this.

I have a couple thoughts for questions 1 and 6:

Question 1.) God can sometimes make a bigger impact on the lives of those around us if we're not completely whole, and that's determined by our faith and praise to Him while we're afflicted (see Paul and Silas's hymn singing in prison after being beaten). It's easy to be happy and an effective witness if you have no ailments, but what happens when you're afflicted with something? Can you still give God the glory and praise that He deserves? If we can look passed our fleshly infirmities and look to God, making Him the most important in our lives, character transformation has already begun. If we can't, Satan has succeeded in keeping our eyes off God, and in many cases, slandering Jesus' name by the bitterness of affliction (usually it comes out in blaming God for our afflictions).

Question 6.) Bad things happen to good people for a couple reasons. For one, it brings refinement into our lives through the Refiner's fire so as to perfect us in all situations, preparing us for the Kingdom of Heaven. For two, Jesus is not only the single figure on the field; Satan is there too. Satan's objective is to destroy and profane all of God's creation, especially the human race. Look at Job. Job's account, in many way, covers both questions 1 and 6 (especially in a spiritual sense). Sometimes the bad happens to good people because Satan is wroth with anger against God's people (and people in general), and sometimes God is working to refine us through our tribulations (just look at the test of faith the Israelites had in Egypt during the plagues and even in the desert and Promised Land). We live in an imperfect world so thus we see such consequences. =/
