We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.
Thoughts are on the possible ramifications for Trump supporters involved in storming the Capitol Building on Wednesday have been expressed at length. Now an insurance company has announced that they no longer employ an attorney who was at the scene.

"These are the things and events that happen when a sacred landslide election victory is so unceremoniously & viciously stripped away from great patriots who have been badly & unfairly treated for so long. Go home with love & peace. Remember this day forever!" Trump wrote.

I have been a bit confused around the word "will". We have a word in Swedish "vill" that sounds a lot like the English word. The Swedish word is more in the meaning "want or desire", probably that is where my misunderstanding comes from. To will is more of an allowing/choice than a desire (if I understand it right). So from that understanding God desires/wants everyone's salvation, yet only wills those who belong/have faith in him to be saved.
Edit: Is it correct to say: "God's will is everyone to be saved, yet He only wills those who believe."
Edit 2: Or: "The judge's will was for his brother not to go to jail, but the judge willed him the sentence of jail for ten years." Contradiction or correct use of the word will?
1 John 1:9 "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness." Well what if someone who commits the unpardonable sin confesses their sin?
Hill Staffers Evacuate as Trump Supporters Clash with Police outside Capitol Building | National Review
"Party of Law and Order" supporters and members breached the Capitol and stormed in to confront police with violence; at least one shot at this time, still breaking...
This is all Trump's fault, even Wisconsin Republican Rep Mike Gallaher is saying so:
Video of police with guns drawn and trained on rioters who broke glass door to House chambers
I hear all the time God loves all people and wishes all to be saved, also know as the ''well meant offer'' but is that true? Let's discuss.
My understanding is God loves his friends and destroys his enemies.
A few things I think are helpful to consider going into this discussion:
-Will all people be saved? Why?
-Does God always fulfill his will and council? Why?
-When Jesus healed people, how did they respond to Christs gift?
-If there is a common love/grace for Christian and non-christian, why should the Christians act in a set apart Godly way?
Here are two things we know about the return of Jesus: He will come at a time when we do not expect him, and life will be relatively normal when he returns. There seems to be a substantial penalty for not being ready for his return. It's not entirely clear what "ready" means?
Don't you think those two things are a bit odd given that Jesus will return at the end of the tribulation period when we expect him, and life will definitely not be normal? Below are my thoughts on this issue.
References to the return of Jesus do not refer to the day he returns, for the most part. They refer to events preceding his day of return. In particular, events preceding the tribulation when life is normal. A series of sudden events will catch you...
