If infants and young children are permitted into heaven unbaptized and unrepentant, not believing in Jesus or choosing to have faith in him.
If the little ones can enter the city of God even though they carry the disease of sin nature, the disease that God must punish and avenge. Then it seems God does not need belief or faith to save someone.
Is this not clearly demonstrated by children who are saved by default?
Some claim that God wrote Genesis, but I think not. After all, Genesis tells us that plants were created before the sun, and birds were created before land animals. One would think the God of the universe would know it was the opposite.
And Genesis says it was all done in six days, or at least it can easily be interpreted as saying that. One would think the God of the universe would be more clear about the billions of years he spent on creation.
So no, I don't think God wrote Genesis. Do you?
How can Jesus relate to us poor sinners if he never sinned. He was only tempted at every point (Even tempted to Rape? Murder? Steal? Lie? What about Molesting children? Was he tempted into that, what about eating Human flesh? That's another sin he would have to be tempted in)
But temptation is not the same as sinning itself, so how does Jesus know how to save someone from sin if he never sinned. One could argue "That he can know because he didn't sin, when he was tempted."
But then Jesus...
In another thread it was claimed that there are multiple credible witnesses to the resurrection. I disagree. Basically we have the author of Mark, and he wrote many years after the supposed event. We don't even know who he was, and don't know what his intention was. Matthew, Luke and John come even later. They closely follow Mark's story, indeed they often just copy it, but diverge sharply on the resurrection. Paul writes earlier, but he appears to be talking about a spiritual resurrection....
Nope, this is not another case where the Black Lives Matter crowd will go out and protest by throwing rocks and bottles while chanting "Hands up, don't shoot". If all lives mattered, they probably would. But now we have a case where black police officers shoot a white unarmed man and his son (an autistic boy who was only 6 years old) while the man has his hands up. In the news story, there is no mention of the skin color of either the driver and his son, nor the skin color of the police...
But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth.
This is just immature even for him, and he's supposed be 70 years old. Sorry, but if people stop tripping over themselves to justify his actions then they would see why he's not fit be president because he's a jerk who belittles anyone and revels in...
Anyone else think that finite punishment should be fitting for finite sin. Its not like the Bible mentions infinite punishment, only that time in hell is everlasting. Can the 2 be separated?
Or can you get out of hell like some of those people who have near death experiences and go to hell first?
