    "Everyone has doubts. What is the one recurring doubt that is the most serious for you ?"

    or,

    "If you were in active ministry, what prompted you to give up a church and go into teaching ?"

    If you were an atheist looking at dust, rocks, gas, sunlight water... over time at what point would you no longer expect it to "produce a horse"??

    I'm troubled with the idea that Santa Claus doesn't exist and Star Wars didn't happen. If its true.... I pray to God he makes it happen.

    I think he is specifically wanting to know if you have any doubt about Christianity. For example, I doubt that Job is the oldest book in the Bible.

    Its the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy for me. But I still really believe they exist. On Easter there was always a basket full of chocolate bunnies and then there was some money under my pillow in place of the tooth I had put there before I went to sleep.

    I would have thought that the problem of pain/evil would be the No. 1 question.

    That is definitely one of my top 5. Personally, my number one is why God would create someone knowing they would reject Jesus and spend eternity in Hell. But Romans 9 seems clear.

    That is not the entire story. He did not. Free Will includes the possibility of disobedience
