Any guesses as to what the other 15 questions are?

Here's 6 of them from the back cover.

I honestly don't understand why the religious answers, at by Christians, are really better than the answers from non believers. They also generally fall flat if you think about them for any length of time.

Presumably the point is to stop the children from doubting their parents' religion, rather than to specifically answer the questions.

I can be a horrible person, lie and swindle my fellow human being (and believer), have affairs that deeply hurt people, but because of Jesus I am saved.

So there’s no consequence. It’s just like being an atheist.

Note that that not all Christians really believe that - Some go with the "Works" passage for example while others try to amalgamate where you need both "Work and Faith." There is this group though that it is just "faith" and that facilitiates some pretty nasty people.

The difference is that we have to deal with the real-life consequences of our actions. We can't just pretend we've been "forgiven" by an imaginary superfriend, and then brush them under the rug.

You're referring to Protestants. As in, all Christians who aren't Catholic or Orthodox. The faith and works thing was one of Martin Luther's big quarrels.

There are many Christian faiths that don't fall under Protestant, Catholic or Orthodox.

Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses, Moonies. To name a few.

I'd say all the loony ones, but then again I think they're all loony  ;)
