What is time to God? In the spiritual realm of God there is no eternity or time. Time only exists here in the physical, but to answer your question, I have to ask you this. Who are you to judge Charles Manson?
Absolutly!!! Because the truth will be revealed to Charles, and he will bow on his knees and confess that Christ is Lord just as we all will. Besides, there is another sinner who was worst than Charles, and the was professed by the apostel Paul himself. He called himself the worst of all sinners.
The prodical son returned to our Father and tried to explain himself, but didn't get the chance. His Father embraced him instead with great joy. The prodigal son is symbolic for each and every human being that ever lived. The older brother is symbolic for us if God chose not to send us all into the world to experience our physical life vessels. He has been with the Father the whole time, but cannot appreciate the love his Father has for him as much as the prodigal son does.
I wish Christians would make up their minds about how to avoid hell. On the one hand they tell us God's wrath upon evil doers sends them to hell, that is, they are judged by their deeds. On the other hand they tell us that rejecting aka not choosing Christ sends people to hell, that is, they are judged by what they believe. So which is it, actions or belief that condemns/saves us? What happens to unbelieving good people, or believing people to do bad things?
To answer the question, hell brings no glory. Unconditional forgiveness, that brings glory.
Some even go as far as to say that hell is cast in the lake of fire (LoF) which is even worse than hell according to them, some even believe that those who are cast in the LoF are annihilated. With all those thousands of denomination that believe in hell, It will not occur to them that the power of the cross is far greater than they know, or want to know.
He did. Romans 11: 13-24 speaks to this. Verse 13 specifically says Paul is speaking to the Gentiles. And verse 21 says "For if God spared not the natural branches (Israelites), take heed lest He also spare not thee (Gentiles)."
I have no problem with Paul. He tells us in Acts 20:27 that he teaches us all what God wants us to know, but no where in his letters does he warn the gentiles about the fires of Gehenna, let alone a place called hell.
If you were God, and had the power to forgive or condemn whomever you chose, would you let people go to Hell? Would there be a single person you would not forgive?If your answer is yes, then who would that be? and why?
Why do some Christians say you're going to hell for celebrating Halloween? I'm a Christian to a certain extent and I sort have beleifs in the views and faith it preaches. I take part in Halloween because its a time that...
