One characteristic of Cliffe which I greatly respect is his willingness to acknowledge when he doesn't know something. Unfortunately, Cliffe doesn't know the answers to a lot of fundamental questions about Christianity. But I don't fault him for this. Christianity itself is silent or ambiguous on many fronts. Here are a couple:
Q: Why would God create mankind and the overall system He did when He knows beforehand that the majority of people wouldn't accept salvation and would end up in hell?
Q: Why does God allow animal pain, when animals aren't culpable for sin?
