    Yes. He made it very clear as He taught me. That started almost exactly 30 years ago. He will never stop raising His Children.

    I do believe He stopped raising Jesus long ago.

    Yes Christ was risen from the dead. Do you believe that you don’t go through what Christ went through to a much lesser extent? Christ is The Firstborn among many brethren.
    Rom.8
    1. [29] For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
    2. Please read The Scripture and pray for understanding.

    This either tells us God randomly bestows mercy upon us or it tells us God doesn't count sin to determine if he will grant mercy or not.

    The information really isn't enough and at best you could call it "Schrodinger's Mercy" since we neither know who will get mercy and who will not. But you can't determine injustice with this information.

    God owes eternal death to all for their sins. If he pays for some absolving their debt, all is fair.

    Let’s say that I’m right. Would you be okay with that?

    God is always fair and we shouldn't question Him.

    Good Day, Hammster

    Nope... some get justice, and some get mercy, but no body gets injustice.

    In Him,

    Yes we are all doomed, until we repent and accept Jesus as our Savior. Once we believe, we are saved, and we will have eternal life.

    With a wicked heart set against God, we will never repent and believe.

    Why would we suppose God would do something like that to begin with?

    Are there instances where he did?

    Not enough information. You told us about their sin and God's judgement. You have not told us about how these sinners have judged others.

    Suppose the 5 that God showed mercy to had also showed mercy to others, whereas the 5 that God did not show mercy to did not show mercy to others? With what judgement you judge you shall be judged.

    He would because otherwise nobody would be saved. And it’s happened since before creation.

    What if the Five not chosen were generally nicer people and gave more to charity and helped old ladies across the street?

    What we do doesn’t matter.
