Hi Rider,<quoted text>
I mentioned our chemistry in response to Juicy saying that she had hardships yet came to christianity. It was like her response was: if I can anyone can. I disagree with that.
My response was in order to point out that maybe she was born with a stronger will. The example was abuse. Juicy came through it and has now chosen to explore and accept christianity. What about the child who goes through those same experiences but doesnt have the will to go on, purely because of their makeup, their ancestory, their genes and commits suicide? The childs will did not allow them the same opportunity as Juicy IMO..........She wasnt as strong, couldnt find the hope...... Should that condemn her to go from one hell to the next?
I believe there are people that could exchange lives with me and say, man what are you complaining about this life was a breeze, The next may find it more difficult then I.
How many muslims convert to christianity? My guess is the number is pretty low.........Think their opportunity to go to heaven is as good as yours?
Your post above is just another reason that I believe it is what Jesus done for us and not based on US. When Jesus was on this earth, He never condemned anyone EXCEPT the religious leaders who walked around thinking they were righteous beause of their knowledge, good works and because they didnt "sin" like everyone else and their obedience to a set of rules that God knew they could never live up to. Jesus came to save sinners, outcast and even the pharisees and religious leaders in His days. He came to Save those which is lost. God will do what is neccasary to save a lost soul, even if it is on their death bed or a few seconds before their death. God has His ways. We just cant and wont understand how. Jesus died ONCE for all..We ALL have the same Jesus and the same opportunity to go to heaven. God doesnt want anyone to perish, according to scripture..He loves us all. The battle for our souls is not between us and God..Its between God and satan. they both want our souls. Jesus won the victory for US. Hope this helps. Nice talking to you. God Bless
