I know what begging the question is. It's drawing evidence from the thing in question. In other words: Is the Bible the Word of God? Yes, because the Bible says so. That's begging the question. You said that one who chooses Christ is better than one who doesn't, just like one who builds robots will sometimes gets one that works and one that is defective. My question was, who made the one more or less defective? That does not beg the question. Quite the contrary. It reveals the god of your Gospel as the Naturalist's divine watchmaker. Wound it up then set it aside and let things happen as they will happen. The god of your gospel is not the God of the Bible, who works all things according to His will. You cannot escape these conclusions.
