From you : "It went right over your head again.<quoted text>
It went right over your head again.
All humans sin even Abraham, Noah, David, Moses, all the Apostles, Paul, Popes, Priests, Ministers, Nuns, Reverends, even YOU, and certainly ME.
23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
All humans sin even Abraham, Noah, David, Moses, all the Apostles, Paul, Popes, Priests, Ministers, Nuns, Reverends, even YOU, and certainly ME."
No, correction. It went over YOUR head.
You mean you sinned like the people and groups I mentioned? You abandoned your son and his mother to die in the desert, you tried to kill your son on an altar because you heard "voices", you murdered Orthodox Christians in Constantinople on your way to more murders in Jerusalem, you ordered the Inquisition that tortured and killed hundreds of thousands in the name of God, you ordered the Reformation assassinations and tortures etc etc? You must have done all that and more, as you said you were a sinner like all those people.
I know that a merciful God can pardon ALL faults, even Hitler's and Stalin's for there is no limit to his forgiveness. BUT, to make heroes and , believe it or not, Saints, of murderers and adulterers like Moses, Abraham, Joshua, David, Saint Louis IX, Isabela la catolica, and for the Moslems, Allah and Muhamad...that is just too much.
