Probably the core belief of Christianity is the concept of forgiveness. It is the central teaching of Jesus and held aloft as the prime virtue of God himself. However nice a virtue it is in small doses, it is completely impracticable and worse still undesirable even if it was possible. Both the forgiveness Jesus told us to show to one another and the forgiveness God supposedly has for us are fundamentally flawed and rife with problems.
One of my favourite bloggers to debate with is Prayson Daniel, an Evangelical Christian who I have been interacting with since I first set up my blog. Despite our differences we still respect each other and keep it civil. Surprisingly, he was open enough to ask me to write a guest post on his blog and an Atheist one at that. Fair play to him for that and his blog is well work checking out regardless of your religious beliefs.
