    That premise is faulty thou, because hell wasn't created for human beings. The lake of fire was created for the devil and his angels. "Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels." (Matthew 25:41) So your statement of "serve me or burn forever" is erroneous. Also, the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. If you don't fear God, then you will never experience the love of God.

    How was that erroneous? Will human souls not burn forever if they choose to remain noncompliant?

    Also, the usage of "fear of God" in the Bible means that of reverence and respect, love. I wasn't using it in that context. I meant fear as in distressed, scared, anxious.

    Anyway, I gotta go class. I'll be back to see your answer.

    Forgive me for misunderstanding you. But a better way to put your statement is that God will and must punish sin. If God is holy, just, and righteous, which He is, than sin must be dealt with. You see God dealt with sin at the cross on Calvary. He poured His wrath out on His Son for the penalty of sin, which is death. He did this because He loved us. He gave mankind a way to be redeemed, which is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ our Lord. Now mankind can have their sin debt ERASED FOREVER through faith in Jesus Christ. But if you refuse the payment on your behalf for the penalty of sin, which is death, than how can God accept you into His kingdom on the last day? Remember sin must be dealt with. "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 6:23) So all those who refused the free gift of salvation and eternal life through Jesus Christ, now must pay for their sin debt on their own. This sin debt will be paid in full on the last day because God always gets the last word. God must punish sin in order to be vindicated and uphold His holy nature. If a sinner refuses the payment already made on their behalf in this life, the payment MUST AND WILL be made in the life to come. That's the bottom line. You either clear you sin debt in this life, through faith in Jesus Christ alone or pay for it in the life to come.


    Also, I never experienced the fear of going to hell like you meant it. Even when I was lost I never feared hell because I didn't fear God. Going to hell was the least of my concerns when I was the servant of sin, the flesh, and the devil. I had the same attitude that all lost people have. "Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die." (1 Corinthians 15:32) Like I said, fearing God is the beginning of wisdom. Now that I am a sinner saved by the grace of God, I have a fear of God because I know that He is real. And because I know the truth my mission and purpose in life is to spread the gospel message of salvation. There is no greater calling than spreading the news of Jesus Christ. There is nothing more important in life. NOTHING. Jesus Christ is all that matters. That's it! Because when all is said and done, the only question that God will ask every soul is "what did you do with my Son, Jesus Christ?" And whatever your answer is will determine your eternal destiny. Thats about it, thats about all. God bless.

    God will and must punish sin.

    He's an abuser with a "do as I say, not as I do" mentality. If creating a torture chamber of brimstone and fire isn't sadistic, I don't know what is.
    If God is holy, just, and righteous, which He is, than sin must be dealt with.

    Scorching someone for all eternity because they used the freewill that was given to them is not "just and righteous". I guess freewill means "do this or else". That's the only way it would make sense.

    All of this could have been avoided if he used his omniscient powers. Which makes me think he simply gets a kick out of this type of thing.

    So living an otherwise good life isn't enough for this deity?

    4.So living an otherwise good life isn't enough for this deity?

    5. God on judgement day: "I know you spent your days feeding the poor and providing safe shelter to abused women and children. But since you didn't believe in me, to the inferno you shall go"



    6. I won't knock that. Keep believing what you believe. More power to you.

    1. God isn't sadistic. "Say to them, 'As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that they turn from their ways and live. Turn! Turn from your evil ways! Why will you die, O house of Israel?'" (Ezekiel 33:11)

    God has given you the choice to follow and obey Him. So now I ask you why will you not FREELY choose to do so this very instant? You have heard the gospel message so if God were to require your soul tonight, what excuse can you give Him for WILLFULLY rejecting the blood of Jesus Christ?

    2. God is just and righteous by punishing sin. If God didn't punish sin He would be a liar. And that is impossible. You see God gave man an eternal soul when He breathed the breath of life into us. That eternal soul can't die. So those who WILLFULLY rejected God for their entire life must spend eternity somewhere. And since none of them wanted to serve God in the first place, they will spend a lost eternity seperated from God in the lake of fire. You reap what you sow my friend.

    3. All of what could have been avoided? God knew the end from the beginning my friend, so how can anything be avoided? Before there was anything, there was always God. And God always had a plan for humanity. This plan is being carried out right now, which will ultimately culminate with God ushering in His everlasting Kingdom in the very near future. You see Gods train is coming, and You can't stop it my friend. You either get on board or get ran over. It's as simple as that. You can either get with this (Jesus Christ) or get with that (the world, the flesh, and the devil). The choice is yours. What will it be?

    4. A good life according to who? Mans standard of good is imperfect and flawed. Man has hidden motives, agendas, and purposes when we do things. So how can man decide what is good and what is not, when we can't see into the heart of the individual carrying out the act? And also how does a couple good deeds compare to a life full of sin? Telling 1 lie is worthy of the lake of fire. Having 1 thought contrary to the will of God is worthy of hell fire. So how can our "righteous acts" compare to a all the sin that we have committed? "But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away." Isaiah 64:6

    You see you have to understand the standard that has been set in place by God. That standard is perfection. That's why God declares in Romans 3:10-12, "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one." So until you come to realize this truth, you will continue to be blind to the ESSENTIAL truth of one's need for a Savior. You can't live up to Gods holy standard apart from Jesus Christ. It is IMPOSSIBLE. But thank God for the Lord Jesus Christ. "And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible." Mark 10:27


    5. Feeding the poor, providing safe shelter, etc. are noble deeds. But works will not save you. Only faith in Jesus Christ will save you. Thats it, thats all! "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." Acts 4:12

    6. Will you give your heart and life to Jesus Christ tonight?

    God created man perfect. Read Genesis chapters 1 and 2 for the creation of man in his perfect state. Then read Genesis chapter 3 for the fall of man into the condition that we are currently in. If you want answers you must go to the source of all truth, the Word of Al-Mighty God!

    I dont like the fact that little boys get molested in the house of God by men of God . shit aint cool mayne. One of the kids I was counselling killed himself over that shit. no amount of meds could fix what those years of abuse did to him.

    I can overlook everything else and just be like ok there might be a god, we dont know for sure......etc....... I mean even if God is mad busy, he will at least make sure little boys who have pledged their lives to serve him, are not getting fucked in his temple by his priests.Right?

    what part of the fuckin plan is that? Innocent kids getting sodomized in church = fuck you and fuck your god. If your god is cool with that, I sure as hell dont want him close to me or anyone I care about.................and if he cant even prevent that shit from happening if he's not cool with it, then what the fuck is he doing? he can create the universe in seven days but cant prevent pedophilia in the one place .................ah fuck it.

    This thread has been an amusing read.

    Anyway, God knowing ahead of time that a specific person is going to hell and creating them anyway so that they can burn forever and ever doesn't make sense to me and I still have trouble reconciling that with a God who supposedly loves the hell-bound person.

    Also, I don't see how anyone can blame bad things on the devil when God created Satan and knew what his actions would be be. This seems to be a contradiction.

    Just my 2 cents.

    ^^^^^ Yeah, that & everything else from an "All Knowing, All Seeing God". If that isn't cruel and sadistic, I don't know what is. Their argument is that God isn't responsible for the actions of man, but if he created man and he knows what man is going to do before he does it ( no free will in that...pre-determined destiny ftl ) then yes he is responsible for an action occurring that he knew before-hand would occur if he created that person. I mean...I'm just trying to use basic logic here. So if God created Hitler and those 6 million Jews knowing damn well what Hitler was gonna do.......I mean he does know everything right?......am I misunderstanding something. Is this the same God who said thou shalt not kill but then commands Abraham to kill his son....then turns around and says.."April Fools....ha ha I was just joking about that whole kill your son thing. Just testing your loyalty."? And let's not forget all of those innocent animal sacrifices/cruelty he always had somebody doing for him. Wonder if PETA supports his actions? j/k

    free will means just that. You can choose to believe in him or not. he coulda made us all believe in him automatically if he wanted to on some robot shit but since he choose to make us with freewill wyeah he love us all but if you choose to not believe in him then yeah it's outta his hands. the people did that NOT GOD! as for you example im sure he does it so everybody has 2 destinys and he knows want happens with each one but he hopes you choose the one that lead you to him and not the one that lead you to go the Hitler rout. cleary Hitler choose the other rout.

    W/ what I am saying it doesn't matter how many destinies a man has. He could have 500 destinies, but at the end of the day wouldn't an All Knowing..All Seeing god still know exactly which destiny that man is going to pick? I mean....he's either All Seeing/All Knowing or not right? The hell bound are essentially damned from birth then right or are we keeping this all knowing being guessing right up to the point of our earthly departure? People assume that just because you don't believe in "their" god that you don't believe in the possibility of a higher being. As I said previously...there are a lot of theories but only 1 truth. Personally, I'm content admitting that I don't have an answer rather than making up stories to fill in gaps. If me not believing in the words of a ultra violent, masochistic, hole riddled, hypocritical, archaic text makes me a bad person......guess I'm fucked. But, I'll be damned if I turn a blind eye to the obvious.

    it's not about turning a blind eye to nothing. it does matter what you do with your destiny because that's the free will he is giving us. Hell was not made for man to go to it was only for Satan and his Angels. We put our own self into heaven or hell by choosing to not learn from the mistakes we make and choosing to turn a blind eye to God. He might know what we gonna choose based on the choices we make because thats the cause and effect but he's still gonna want us to choose the path for us that leads to him. Nobody is born to go to hell, that's on us. small scale example (and im not sayin im God so dont take it that way) but It's like me and my son. I love him even tho he dont listen sometimes and I love him while im punishing him but he has to get punished. And he's gonna continue to not listen once in awhile in the future AND I KNOW THAT...but im still gonna tell him whats right and reluctantly punish him every time hes outta line even tho i know hes hard headed but he's gonna have to be accountable to the choices he makes and thats part of becoming a man. I can guide him but I cant do it for him. dont mean I dont want him to do right. God could get us to heaven for us but he wont do that cuz that would contradict us having free will in the first place and we gotta be accountable for our choices just like my own kid does. Why would he put people in heaven that dont wanna be there on their own anyway?
