Here's what doesn't make any sense to me. Atheists always say, it doesn't make sense to send anyone to Hell because they did something wrong like
lied or stole just once or twice because EVERYONE makes mistakes right? Yes, that includes both you and me.
Oh what if I stole two times? Oh I'm still a good person right? Three times? 80 times? Where's the line right? What if I stole 80 times from you? Am
I still a good person? Can I murder 10 people? What's the magic number before I'm not a good person anymore and should be sent to Hell? Who do you
think should get to sent to Hell?
Nobody? Maybe that's a possibility. Okay, but basically that's saying well we shouldn't be punished spiritually for what we do. Okay, I can buy
that. I'll even agree with that. Makes perfect sense. Shouldn't be punished in Hell for eternity for a few mistakes we made while we were alive.
So then the Bible says well just believe in Jesus and try to be as Christ like as possible and try to change. Maybe you were a bad person, but maybe
you can change and be a better one. You might not get it perfect, but I'm not gonna send you to Hell for a few mistakes here or there.
So, the Atheists turns right back around and become hypocrites and says that's bunk. Why should I have to believe in Jesus? Why should I have to live
my life like someone else tells me? I should be able to do whatever I want? You're going to send me to Hell just because I don't believe in Jesus?
That's stupid! I can live my life just fine without the Bible!
Okay, right, so I get it. You want your cake and eat it too. You shouldn't be punished for what you do. You should be able to commit as many sins as
you want and lie and steal and cheat, and murder, but you're still basically a good person right? Everybody makes mistakes right? I've heard that
just too many times.
But they don't want to believe in Jesus either, or do Jesus's work, or try to change either. So, they basically think, well I can do whatever I
want, and make no effort whatsoever to do a single thing Jesus asked me to do even though he DIED for my sins and I can't even get off the friggin
couch for him yet I still expect some kind of reward from him and be allowed into Heaven because I shouldn't be sent to Hell right?
Not little old me? My skins just too sensitive to that kind of thing right? Well hey if it's gonna be that kinda party maybe I'll just not show up
to work and still expect a paycheck. I mean why not?
They're all just spoiled little children that don't want to be punished for what they do, but they don't want to be punished for not believing
either. So basically, you think you should just get a free ride right? That's what you're saying right? No matter what you do, you should just get a
free ride right into Heaven? Good luck with that.
But, maybe you're right. Maybe Hell isn't real. Maybe you won't be punished. After all, Hell is mainly a Catholic or Catholic like belief where
even a good majority of Christians don't even believe in Hell. But I'll tell you one thing, with that attitude you sure won't get no reward from
anyone either. But maybe you're okay with that. I'm okay with that too.
But my question is, what exactly have you done to even deserve to be in Heaven and not Hell if it's real? Or do you really just think you deserve a
free ride and shouldn't have to do anything? Even something as simple as simply accepting the basically free ride Jesus has given you? I mean, if you
can't even accept something that someone's trying to just give you and you're not willing to work for it either how could anyone make it any easier
In other words, you won't accept God no matter what or no matter how it works. Both ways doesn't make any sense to you. So, why even talk about
