OK Debbie, I'll accept your position. I'll even answer your questions, because I think you, Debbie, came to this site for a reason and I think my
view point, no matter how misplaced with talking to you (insert sarcasm here), you might find relevant and interesting.
There once was a girl I knew. A very, very special girl. She told me some truths and it saved me. I wish she was only here now reading this post, so
that she might see some truth so that I can reciprocate the gift she gave to me. A second chance.
Christians are not self-righteous... well some are :-0 The fact is Christians are no more special in God's eyes than anyone else on the planet. God
loved Jesus as much as he loved Hitler!! Let me say that again. God loved Jesus as much as he loved Hitler. Jesus, of course, was righteous in God's
eyes, because he knew the truth, but he was not more special as a living being. Jesus himself says we are ALL children of God and what did he say
about the very men who crucified him? Forgive them for they know not what they do. Jesus' life was on the same level as those who crucified him.
You see, God talks, speaks, communicates, shows the way to every single person on this planet. However, there are some who walk around with a vale and
can not see God, can not hear him. If they opened their heart they would. You are right, Debbie, if you are close to God you will be saved too. Jews,
Muslims, Buddhists, Mormon, Catholic you name it, those who put their faith in God will be saved. Christianity, when applied like Jesus tells us, is
just the most assured way of that happening, but that doesn't make them better. Here is the thing, and this includes Christians... many do no turn to
God. They maybe comfortable with the thought of him and being in his presence, but they do not turn their life over to him. They do not praise him
when good things in their life are happening. They do not say, "your will be done", when they are neck deep in the sh!t river. Will they thank him
during those times, because our times of struggles gives us our greatest lessons in life?
And therefore, they can say all they want that they have a good relationship with God, but when the sh!t hits the fan, will they really pass the test.
Ask any lifeguard what is the first thing they teach you about saving a drowning victim. Swim down, because that is the last place they want to go. No
mater how good the drowning person is, they will drown the life guard in their desperation. When government says they will save you, will you turn to
them or turn to God.
Forgiveness: forgiveness from God is either the easiest thing in the world or it is impossible, no middle ground. That is because it only comes from
sincere repentance. You can not fake sincere repentance with God, you either are or you are not. Of course that requires some regret for ones actions,
which is harder for some people than others.
So here is the greater truth. There is intelligent life outside of our planet. They have been here before and they will come again very soon... and
Jesus and many others knew this. These celestial beings (call them Angels if you will) walk with God and care for the plight of our planet. Our planet
that will become uninhabitable to life very soon. Some of these celestial beings fell to earth and walk among us as demons inhabiting humans. They are
here to turn us away from God's saving grace. Darkness is the absence of light and God is light. You either fill your soul with Light or it will be
filled with its absence.
