Here are some ways to response to attacks on christianity:
Attack:How can you believe in what you cannot see?
Response:Have you ever seen a million dollars?Have you ever seen your brain?Just because you don't see God doesn't mean he doesn't exist.
A:We are made from cells,this is proof that we are not made by supernatural means.
R:That so-called proof is against you.humans were made out of clay.Our body contains iron and iodine inside it.the cells themselves are basic of basic elements from the earth.Thus,God did make us from clay
A:All humans are born atheists since they don't know about God.
R:Really?Babies also don't know how to speak,read,write,or even cloth themselves.However,they are naturally good,so this is proof that God made humans to be good at heart.
A:Your priests molest children,how can you be a part of a church like that?
R:You judge God on the acts of sinful humans.Plus not all the church priests do this.there have always been sinners in the church.I don't care if there are a few bad priests in the church,as long as my priest isn't a bad one,I don't care about the sinners.
A:God hates us all if he allows bad things to happen.
R:This a sign of ignorance,he gave you life and the free will to deny him.Plus,have you ever thought that these things happen to strengthen a person?A father dies but in turn,two sisters are brought closer together.A woman is raped,but she has the courage to report the incident and save many women from the man.All things happen for a reason,don't think He has abandoned you.
A:You have no proof God exists.
R:Yes,I do.there are the saints,and even everyday miracles.A man trapped under for a month rubble after the earthquake in Haiti is found alive.A man is able to lift a car to save the trapped child underneath it.Now what proof do you have on your theory of creation?
A:Catholics aren't Christians.they worship the saints and think the Pope is greater than Jesus.
R:Yes we are.Catholics don't worship saints,we look to them for assisstance and guidance.And we consider the Pope as the vicar of Christ,he is filling in for him until the second coming.
Please note that I may not be 100% right in all of them,so bear with me.
Are you sure this is the route you want to take? We as Christians shouldn't plan what to say in a situation. We should study, and when that time comes, the Holy Spirit will guide us and bring those things to our remembrance.
Luke 12:12 says For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say.
2 Timothy 2:15 says Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
Just a few suggestions....
1st attack: How can you believe in what you cannot see?
-Use Bible prophecy. No ONE can argue against Bible prophecy.
Also, that statement that you made about not caring about sinners is completely opposite of what the Bible tells us to do. You said you don't care about sinners, as long as your priest isn't bad. Who are we to not care about anyone?
Romans 3:23 says For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
All of us are sinners. Jesus died on the cross for all. We are to love our enemies.
I would not say that God gave us free will to deny Him. God created Adam and Eve perfect. Before the fall of the human race, He gave them free will to worship Him, love Him and keep His commandments. Because if there wasn't free will, then people would worship Him out of force.
I respond once about the pope but I didn't go into detail. You said that the pope is filling in for Christ. I have an honest question.
Before Peter became (what you say because I'm not catholic) the "1st pope", who filled in before Jesus was born? Moses talked with God not a representative of God. A pope wasn't needed then.
John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
Based on this scripture, the Father sent the Holy Ghost, not the pope. That is of the Bible, not of mine own words.
