Let's just say that Bob is going to wish that he had never done such a thing.

God makes it as quick as possible, but without sacrificing any potency.

Yes, Bob will wish for such things, and probably even come to tears after what God will do "for" him, not "to" him. It's going to hurt the living fuq out of poor old bob.

But no, it never was eternal, God is just like that, unlike all of us who don't even think about such things.

And the good thing is, it will never happen again.

Building one's house upon the sand is an awful and serious thing, we mainly do it because we are dumb, and it causes nothing but pain for us all.

Yes, Bob will wish he had never done such things, i almost feel sorry for bob, bob will wail and gnash won't he, in all of his righteous torment he will ask for help, but it won't come.

But it was never eternal.

Those poor poor children.

Is bob a catholic by the way? He sounds an awful lot like a catholic doesn't he?

Getting into Heaven takes MORE than just grace and faith! In fact, very few Christians, even hard core Christians know this, but entry into Heaven and avoiding Hell requires both faith in Jesus AND good, righteous works/behaviors!(Matthew 7:21-23)
Preacher, the true faith in Jesus will produce those good and righteous works and behaviors!! and true Christians DO know this, and its not a secret to them.

True faith in Jesus does not produce prejudice, hatred, or condemnation. Can you say you don't posess any of these qualities?

Your first sentence is true. However everyone who has true faith in Jesus is not sinless because they still have the old nature to deal with--and may grapple with some of the feelings you describe. But you'd have to give a specific example for me to see where you are coming from to see how you interpret these 3 qualities in a supposed "christian".

The Bible may say that man's righteousness is like filthy rags. Matthew 5:48 means man IS TO have righteousness that is like Freshly WASHED and BLEACHED rags to have ANY chance of getting into Heaven!
