You don't get it do you June you would rather just spew out all this vicious venom, without knowing all the facts.
Everything man eats or drinks is altered by chemicals, pesticides, not counting what man puts into their own bodies, like booze drugs, etc. the sexual revolution of the 60's and 70's have produced a lot of sexual transmitted deceases and you want to blame God, when He clearly warn man "THOU SHALL NOT DO " CERTAIN THINGS.
GOD KNEW IF WE DID THE HARM THAT WOULD COME TO US. MAN KIND TRYING TO BE SMART IN THEIR OWN EYES AND HAVE BECOME FOOLS AND DIDN'T HEED GODS WARNINGS.
I guess it is easier to point your finger at someone else and blame them then taking responsibility for your own faults hey June, time to grow up.

From my perception, it should be of special interest to readers of the bible, why the character portrayed as Jesus didn't lecture his father about being so brutal (for instance) in wanting people to stone each other to death.
It's what was not uttered by Jesus that makes the story so ridiculous and suspect in that the words simply came from men with little concept of anything but over-active imagination.
A savior who preaches love ought to have said "Hey dad ... why DID you create evil anyway? What was your purpose" ... and questions such as that. But the character of Jesus was silent on those very important issues.
The authors of the bible weren't "up to much."
Now we are back to free will again June.
God gave us that choice to do good or evil.
God even warned us of the consequences of choosing evil.
So man chooses to go to heaven or hell. If they end up in hell they chose to go their freely. It was their own choice.

Christ's Resurrection vs. Those of Other 'Gods'
Ryan Duncan, Crosswalk.com

Does Christís resurrection even matter? This was the question I found myself asking the day after Easter. Life had returned to business as usual, with most of the holiday lessons fading into the background. Nothing about Easter had really fazed me, and why should it? I already knew all of the sermons; I could quote the story of Christís death backwards and forwards.

Even my attempts at prayer had fizzled out. So it was a complete surprise one Friday night when I overheard a couple of college students talking about Jesus' resurrection.

"Christians," one said, "like to think Jesus is unique because he rose from the dead, but that isnít true. Resurrection was a common theme in most ancient religions. The Greek god Dionysus had been brought back from death, so had the Egyptian god Osiris, the Hindu god Ganesha, a hero from Finnish mythology, and a Japanese goddess."

"So," another concluded, "not only is Christianity ludicrously fake, itís not even original."

They all laughed, and I found myself wondering about the holiday I had just celebrated. Most Christians I knew did think Christís coming back to life was unique... but was it? I started looking up everything I could find on resurrection myths, and was pleasantly surprised at what I found: it turns out Christís death and resurrection are more unique than I ever realized.

None of These Beings Knew They Were Going To Die

The first thing that became apparent to me was that none of these other deities knew they were going to die. Dionysus was slain when he was a child. Osiris was tricked and murdered by rivals. Death took them all by surprise and in very human fashion. Jesus, on the other hand, not only knew he was going to die, he even knew the method: crucifixion.

The Gospels are replete with verses where Jesus refers to his own death, but nowhere is his knowledge more apparent than in the garden of Gethsemane,

Jesus went out as usual to the Mount of Olives, and his disciples followed him. On reaching the place, he said to them, "Pray that you will not fall into temptation." He withdrew about a stone's throw beyond them, knelt down and prayed, "Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done." An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him. And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground. When he rose from prayer and went back to the disciples, he found them asleep, exhausted from sorrow. Luke 22:39-45

Christís death did not take him unaware. He knew he was going to be crucified, it was the reason he was born. This awareness leads into the second major difference between Jesus and other resurrected gods...

None of These Beings Went Willingly To Their Death

The second significant aspect of Christís death is that he went to it willingly. As mentioned above, all these other gods met their ends in very human ways. Some, like Ganesha, tried to fight a stronger opponent and lost; others, like the Japanese goddess Izanami, died from sickness or childbirth. The impression is that none of them intended to die but that their deaths came anyway. Christís death was altogether different.

Not only did he claim foreknowledge of his impending death, he claimed he could stop it if he chose to. The book of John in particular makes note of this in several places:

Jesus said, "My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jews. But now my kingdom is from another place." "You are a king, then!" said Pilate. Jesus answered, "You are right in saying I am a king. In fact, for this reason I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me." John 18:36-37

What do you say to the Atheist that might say something like this:
"How come you preach the Bible as the foundation of Christianity, when Jesus never did and His Apostles never did?

Why does your Bible only have 66 Books but the Catholic has 73. Who determined what should be 'the Bible'?

How come you preach something different about the Bible then what the first Christians understood?

Why do you reject the science that shows the Earth being millions of yrs old?

How come you continuously accuse Catholics of Idolatry when they explained to you that they do not?

If you're going to claim to be specially called by God to preach the Bible, then you can't run from these questions. Are you legit or are you a fraud?

My guess is, the Atheist would say, "Why do you preach words from a bible at me when you already know that I can read?

And by the way, thank you for placing a capital letter on the word Atheist.
