No, it does not answer the question. You claim that God judges a person by his heart. Ok, then, how would God judge a person who is a hateful racist, homophobe,misogynist, xenophobe?
Huckabee and a number of your evangelical leaders claimed that God punished those children by allowing them to be murdered because of no prayer in school, abortion and gay marriage and teaching evolution, and one in particular in TN put it so eloquently "teachin' ya how to be a homo"
Do you think that you can just go through life being a hater and then ask for forgiveness at the pearly gates and all is well in the world and you go to heaven?
Ok, Homer, time for you to say...
A rebellious heart is a personal choice.

Jesus came to tell us who God is. We have a free will to either receive it or reject it.

We are born with a rebellious nature. We are also born with a conscience that compels us to seek something greater than ourselves. But we have to take the first steps to seek God. He goes the rest of the way and finds us.

Blaming God when we are the ones rebelling against Him doesn't make any sense.

God is love. He is the source of love. He has the power to soften even the hardest of hearts.

Whether we receive it or not is a choice each one of us has to make.

If this helps...

"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Rom. 8:38-39

Again, I hope it does.

Timeless stuff eh? How about Green Day's Favorite son?
In 1969, the Vietnam anthem was Hey Jude__never learned why, never cared why but when I hear it I go back there for a couple of minutes.

That makes sense, look what sharing our nuclear secrets got us in to. Well, it's not like other nations wouldn't have figured it out on their own__eventually.

But it would have been a hoot to watch them during the trial and error period eh?

Anyone remember "The Atomic Kid?"

In 1969 the Vietnam anthem was Hey Jude by the Beatles__strange but true.
CCR's Fortunate Son was about how the sons of political and financial heavyweight's sons were mysteriously exempted from "meaningful" service to country.
Green Days Favorite Son was a smackdown of GWB.
Agree that 60's and 70's music was superb no matter the genre it was all good.
Ok. Didn't know that. Yes I know. Quite familiar with John's music. Haven't heard it but will. Yes.

She doesn't have to.

I have the post.

If you'd like, I can let you twist in the wind, as I did with Gunner's lies concerning 'Kleen Energy'.

Then, when you've lied about it enough, I put up your post.

Or, you can avoid all that and admit to what you said.

Gunner never quite got over the humiliation I handed him!!

Nor will you.
