Have you ever heard of "MENTAL ILLNESS"? Just because somebody is mentally ill it does not mean they are evil.

Our Lord died on the Cross to OPEN the Gates of Heaven and offer Salvation to all. He did not die to automatically forgive everyones' sins. Our Lord,Himself said "All sins can be forgiven." He did not say all sins will be forgiven. In addition,there is the matter of expiation for sin.

Mental illness does not in anyway indicate that a person is evil. If I even implied that,I apologize. I am sure that most,if not all of us,have a sometime suffered from some form of 'mental illness.' The terms are general;and,cover everything from A-Z.

When a person accepts Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, asking Him to forgive their sin - ALL OF THEIR SINS ARE FORGIVEN> past, present and future. Christ only died on the cross one time, one time for all sins.
There is NOTHING a person can do to be forgiven for their sins other than to simply ASK FOR FORGIVENESS. There is no work you can do to earn forgiveness. Jesus Christ was the only one capable of earning your forgiveness, because He was sinless.

I doubt Adam Lanza took his life to escape punishment. Adam Lanza was broken and he was in a rage. When he got his fill of killing he came down to his turn. Or who can say that Adam Lanza didn't shoot himself because he was disgusted by what he had just done and wanted to die?
I disagree, there are MANY people around the world who have no form of "organized religion." There are countries where it is illegal for Christians to meet and worship God or study His word. I have also met people who did not know another Christian so there was no other person much less a group to congregate with. Most of those people have richer relationships with God than anybody I have met in the United States.

Sir,in the case of criminal homicide,neither God nor the Son of God will unilaterally apply forgiveness. The victim or victims must also forgive;and, there are no 'free-lunches.' Expiation for sin is a reality. Also,we do not choose Our Lord and Saviour;He chooses us.

Discrimination against Christianity is ofcourse very prevalent. Your reference to Organized Religion" is probably the Three Major Religions. Most of these people may worship a Creator. Events occurred in our past,that basically condemned us. Evil exists in the world. It is a reality. Christianity offers Salvation. It is possible for a person to be good and not a part of Organized Religion. Such a person has already been chosen by God;and, God choses who He wants,we do not do the choosing. Organized Religion does make it much easier for us to know God.

No one is good enough. There was only one person good enough (sinless) to get to heaven on their own merit. That was Jesus Christ. We are all sinners. Only those who accept Jesus Christ's sacrifice on the cross will be forgiven. He was the final sacrifice, the Lamb of God.
Isaiah 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
Romans 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins,he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins,and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

Where in the bible does it say that "expiation" is necessary for forgiveness?

The Bible tells us about the original test of man's freedom of choice.... Expiation (payment for sin) had to be made, and Jesus paid it all.
