    why god judges?..why god is interested in judging and why HE is interested in sending people to hell...is it that every one would reach heaven eventually or is hell permanent for those who get in?

      God judges because he laid out right and wrong. Failure to follow right is why he judges.

      "God judging you and sending you to hell" is merely a preoccupying thought preventing you from exercising your own free will or use of your mind.

      "HE" is not interested in judging. Ultimately, you will judge yourself through your actions and find your own level of peace accordingly.

      The church's definition of judgement is not exactly the same as the dictionary's definition of judgement. To the church it is black or white. To a dictionary, or to that matter a high court judge, it means to make a balanced assessment of an individual's case, passing sentence based on the severity of the crime comitted, extenuating circumstances, past record, and the remorse expressed by the convicted.

        with legal judgement, the person that does the crime does the time.  Not so in christianity - generations get punished because a talking snake conned a rib-woman into eating an apple

      God is a loving God, and he does not send anyone to hell. People send themselves to hell when they choose to live their life according to their own selfish morals, instead of what the bible teaches of how we should live. Some of you may not like this message, but there is no need to be afraid of the truth. God loves me, so I have no choice but to love each and everyone of you. Take care!

        People don't go walking off to hell on their own accord, someone needs to send them their because they didn't worship your god, and the only one can do that is your god. A person could do far more good in this world than any given Christian and still not worship your god or live their life according to your holy book, yet your god will still send them to hell.



        It isn't a message, it's a threat. smile

        Love is not something you can "do" because your god told you to.

        Love has no demands and no conditions. You can not "love" because you are commanded to do so.

          Absolutely, Earnest. We have free will. Thank goodness for that.

          Some beautiful wisdom, Earnest. Love truly is unconditional. And God (if He exists) would not demand anything. He would merely love us and help us to reawaken, spiritually.

          But each of us has the freedom to refuse to wake up. The process of waking up requires that we want it. If we never want it, then there you go. Earnest (the true self behind those beautiful mortal eyes of yours) remains a meat body as long as it's possible to reincarnate on this small planet... until helium ignition occurs in the Solar core. Then bye-bye planet Earth and all these meat bodies we love so much. But heck, that won't happen for another 4-5 billion years. Plenty of time.

      If one foolishly steps off of the roof of a very tall building and goes splat, that is God judging you. Karma is God judging you, but that which set karma in motion was your own actions to begin with. And there is no "bad" karma. All karma is an opportunity to wake up spiritually. Too few are smart enough or strong enough to take that opportunity. Personally, I'm still working on it.

      Some of these jokers here think that they are their physical bodies. In a few decades, when their bodies are decaying in the ground or ashes spread across the sea, they will suckle against another tit which they will soon call "mommy," and may dimly remember their old names. Yet, their new body will soon forget such details.

      And when they suffer in their new lives, say a century from now, they may either resent the apparent source of that suffering, or they may finally take responsibility for what they themselves have created.

      Nearly 400 years ago, Rene Descartes wrote "dieu en moi." Genesis 1:26 tells us that we are baby gods. We have the power of creation. Sometimes we stupidly create something like stepping off a very tall building. We have judged ourselves. Splat!

      It is an attribute of the Creator-God Allah YHWH to check the performance of the created and judge them according to the purpose of their creation and reward them accordingly. The next stage of the life has different dimensions, those who do not obey his commandments and spend their lives according to them, they are incapacitated to join that life; this is their hell. Those who obey his commandments will be suited to the new environments and would happily engage in the activities of the new life; it is their heaven:

      [67:1] In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful.
      [67:2] Blessed is He in Whose hand is the kingdom, and He has power over all things;
      [67:3] Who has created death and life that He might try you — which of you is best in deeds; and He is the Mighty, the Most Forgiving.
      [67:4] Who has created seven heavens in harmony. No incongruity canst thou see in the creation of the Gracious God. Then look again: Seest thou any flaw?
      [67:5] Aye, look again, and yet again, thy sight will only return unto thee confused and fatigued.
      [67:6] And verily, We have adorned the lowest heaven with lamps, and We have made them for driving away satans, and We have prepared for them the punishment of the blazing Fire.
      [67:7] And for those who disbelieve in their Lord there is the punishment of Hell, and an evil resort it is!

        Since all things comes in pairs , there is a true and a false God.

        The True has perfected himself and thus He is united and is one. All that belongs to him share of his nature.
        Thus they all are united as One.

        The false does no know neither can he ever perfect him self. Thus he is always divided against himself.

        Thus is nature is seen in his actions. And all that belongs to him share of his nature.
        Comparing criticising judging the others as false.

        Learn the unity of the True and you now know all things.

          This is exactly the issue - deferring responsibilty to the lion rather than accepting responsibility for YOU not looking after someone by letting them stay in safety.  All religion, faith or other mystical illusions do this, it is where dogma overcomes humanity.

              Just where is tolerance in your analogy?  If you know someone will be killed by lions if they leave the safety of your house, why would you be callous enough to throw them out anyway?

              Just what level of abuse are you talking about?
              I would think the only abuse severe enough for a visitor to be thrown out in a situation like that would be, if he were assaulting me, and my life was in danger.  Or if he was trying to burn down the house.

                  Everyone would draw the line differently.
                  When abusive behavior begins it most often keeps increasing until you put your foot down.

                  Why not put your foot down at an earliest opportunity and avoid a lot of strife.

              In order for you and Jerami to support the indefensible position that you hold, it has become apparent that you are now desperate enough to grasp at anything if you think it will work.

              It is not working, and you have now gone off on an inane, absurd tangent, using one childish analogy after another...trying desperately to escape the discomfort that honesty would cause you.

              Not one of your analogies is in concensus with an omnipotent, omniscient God.  Your analogies are all about the way YOU would respond to these hypothetical situation. You  Are  Not  God!

              The honest answer is that an omniscient omnipotent God has no need to judge anything, for in judging us He is only judging Himself, because free will is not possible under an omniscient deity.

              And if you are implying that He sometimes suspends his omniscience, then He is not omniscient.

                  Your trying to persuade me to believe that nonsense is reason--is not ignorance, because I know you are a sensible man in most of the other aspects of your life, or you would not have lived to be as old as you are, but on this religious thing you are delusional, buddy.

        Choices. . . . . .chain of events........
        .getitrite, we have choices and as a result of the choices we make, we cause a chain of events to happen. Any action has a re-action. And whoever caused the "initial" action is responsible for the reaction. Some are just to "whatever" to face the consequences of their actions.
        A couple of months ago I opened my home to a homeless friend until he could get his life back on the right track. Since the house I live in was my parents, (and I had to respect them while I was here), the same was made clear to him. No drinkin, no drugs etc. Come n go as you may, but when here, respect.
        I have a 16 year old son. He has several electronic gadgets. and he shared. Just the boy treated them as his. The guest had no money, and after 2 months, showed no sign of attempting to get a job, so, I suggested we have a yard sale to mainly boost his ego or something. Went ok, I sold a few antiques, and at the end of the day, he assumed the money was his. ...Argument started calmly, ended with him saying a long list of not allowed four letter words, and I gave him a choice, either stop using that language or leave. He is no longer here.
        I overlooked a lot during his stay.  And in no way do I feel guilty by asking him to leave.
        My point,(and I am aware that many do not believe in a higher power) but hey, Grace will tolerate so much before leaving us.
        Consequences, are rarely ever enjoyable. But they are ours.

    God does not judge.
    He has committed that to Jesus, because Jesus became a man (as one of us--flesh and blood---) and He understands our makeup. He knows what it means to be human.

    "The Father judges no man, but has committed all judgement to the Son"..Jesus.

    He went one step further and said that we are all judged "by the words which I )Jesus) have spoken".

    Also He took all (our) judgment upon Himself (on the cross) so that we can go free!!!!!  SSSOOO

      True. The complex representations like Zeus display the relationship between hate and jealousy, envy and avarice much clearer and more distinctly than the biblical mono god.

      Zeus was a right bastard of bastards, king of the psychos. lord of the human condition. The myth itself.

    ...if the "god thing" of the bible existed, it has made so damned many mistakes, I don't know how it could think it had a right to judge anything but its ineptness...lol

    Though Bible is one of the God gifted book but after coming the Al Qur'an the suitableness of its has been finished. Besides the Bible has been changed by many authers. For this reason the existence of God seemed to be capricious to you. So, to know the existence of God really you must have knowledge about Al Qur'an. If you abide this suggestion I think your confusion about the existence of God, His power to judge will be solved easily. Even your unsteady mind will get peace.
    Best of luck.

      sirajy:
      I ask this question of all believers in this thing you call allah/god.
      There is not one scripture in the qur'an, the bible, the torah, the NT that defines this god/allah thing you mention in any manner but opinion and conjecture.
      Why do you speak of "it" as tho you know "it" exists?
      Pls do not offer opinion or guess.
      If you cannot offer what I ask for, you are not a credible "hubber" in ref to that which you ref. to: "god/allah."
      I don't think you'llbe able to offer a reasonable response.

    God has made hell because he has laid out good and evil in front of the human beings now those people who choose evil will have to be punished for their sins.

    God gave human beings every form of comfort and blessings on the earth; these blessings are to test the human being whether he thanked God while using His benefits; whether he remained good while using them or else.

    If there was no hell or concept of it no human beiong would have done any good because we all know that there is much more charm in the evil (for example drinking, rape and so on) than in the good.

    God said that people will go into hell if they will be having sins and after getting punished they will come to heaven but those people who did not believed in the oneness of God and associated other people or objects like sun moon etc with his power will never come back from hell and will remain there ever after.
