Article: 10 Reasons Christianity is Wrong
Evil: The tried and true returns. If you are a Christian you are probably rolling your eyes because you’ve heard it time and again.

In order to perform Biblical analysis that actually broadens our view of what is true and false in the “good” book we need to bring in external sources.
