What you need to realize is that hell was never designed with the human being in mind, who's the crowing glory of God's creation via an
eternal evolutionary process
Should I quote all of the Bible passages that threaten humanity with hell?
God himself took on the role of a human being and crashed that "gate" on our behalf in accordance with a boundless love,
But didn't bother fixing what he broke? That's intelligent. According to the Bible, he already "wiped the slate" with us once, promised it wouldn't
happen again, then tried for another successful harvest using the same flawed seed.
The definition of insanity: doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Sound familiar?
A flow of life that is everlasting from life to life in eternity, presented unconditionally as an unmerited Grace (action of God's
Here's what I'm getting from you.
If we support "God's pride and vanity, we'll be rewarded with gluttony and sloth. If we fail, he'll reward us with wrath and jealousy.
So either way, we're up to our necks in the seven deadly sins. He will either punish us or reward us with the very things we're working to avoid. Does
that sound sane to you? Does that make any kind of sense?
You say you're willing to adjust your stance in light of new information or new knowledge and understanding, but is that really the
Present to me concrete evidence of your claims. Since your psychology is proving to be less than sound, perhaps your stash of verifiable facts will do
the job. At that point, I will reconsider. Until then, keep pounding your Bible. I'm sure it provides all the answers to your life.
Are you smarter than God? Are you the devil's advocate? Will you argue FOR hell, when none of us were intended for it?
Are you as smart as god? You must be, to be so sure of what you're saying. If I can't say I know god like that (and I never have), then you should
stop posting right now, because you've been acting the part ever since you got here. And to be quite honest, you make even less sense than I do.
As to the rest: He knows everything. He created hell because he knows everything. He THREATENED us with it. He knows exactly where we're going, and
prepared so that we would get there. He knows everything, and created hell. And we're not meant to go there?
Can you hear the laughter even now as you take out the case against God and read it before the whole court? Will you laugh if what I've just
said here, is true?
Should I find out, one day, that everything you've given to me is fact, then I'll proudly present my middle finger to your god and ask for the next
ticket to Exhibit A in the underworld, and I'll be happy doing it. If I can get a kick in while I'm at it, then that's gold.
I'm not sure how that would work, though. I've never tried to go mano y mano with a fictional character...
