FYI, I was kicked out of religious class after 2 years because I asked so many questions...and they got tired of having to say "just because" or "god did it" every single time
It's a good example of how a lot of believers can't deal with criticism or objective inquiries. They assume those questions and criticism are attacks. It also makes them question their belief as more and more science is able to "debunk" some stuff...or modern morality does.

My kids went to school in Victoria in London. One summer day I was walking home with my eldest and she suddenly comes out with this " Dad isn't it a pity that the jews killed christ". Well me dedicated anti fascist had a heart attack. I rephrased it to explain the Politics killed christ and it is wrong to target all Jews for a combined political manoevre.Her teacher taught her this. She also thought that donkeys had a cross on their back were Jesus sat on one. This was 20 years ago but what are they teaching our kids???
And God can do anything
And the LORD was with Judah; and he drave out the inhabitants of the mountain; but could not drive out the inhabitants of the valley, because they had chariots of iron. - Judges 1:19 (KJV)

Nope, he can't beat chariots mad of iron it would appear.

he drove out the inhabitants of the hill, but not the valley dwellers who had chariots of iron.
neither politics or jews killed christ.
"I saw many captives crucified, and remembered three of them as my former acquaintance. I was very sorry at this in my mind, and went with tears in my eyes to Titus, and told him of them; so he immediately commanded them to be taken down, and to have the greatest care taken of them, in order to their recovery; yet two of them died under the physician's hands, while the third recovered Josephus .
