Why Should Jesus Love Me?

I would add a big part of accountability IMO is responsibility. And is some of the mitigated when people don't know better or don't have the tools?

I can't speak to who deserves saving. Then again nobody does.

I can't speak to what is fair as far as who is saved as I don't know who is saved

But if a man spends decades in prison (where he should be) until he dies and in that process learns how to become a man, how to become a decent human being, gets to know God, learns remorse for his crimes, and for all intensive purposes becomes almost a different person than the one who committed the crimes, at bare minimum should he not get to stand before God and let God decide?

I don't know who is saved. I can't say I know for certain how God will judge those that came to know him by a different name or not thru the bible. I can't speak to any of that for a fact as I can't know. I believe God to be just and to be fair so I trust His judgement to do what is right

But if as a society there can never be redemption, as a man there can never be redemption, if spiritually there can never be redemption than we are all screwed. And a society that places no value on forgiveness, has no belief in redemption and sees no profit in rehabilitation other than a self-serving one and there are no second chances is one I don't want to be a part of in this life or the next.

I don't know who is forgiven but I believe in forgiveness and am glad God forgives

No. I don't judge a person based on what they believe. I like them because I think they're nice, clever and funny. I like their posts because I don't know a lot of the law side of the Bible and it's interesting. I like you as well Docs :)

Haven't been on for two days and spent a couple hours catching up.

Funny that I see you all over Topix 24/7 spewing your hatred.

Agreed.
All I could say to God is "I honestly did the best I could" If that isn't good enough for God then screw him.

It just one of the stupid things Paul wrote. Sadly many think it is the "Word of God".

Women are to be silent, hide their hair (and faces according to some), be slaves to their husbands and have babies; they are good for nothing else. Blames Eve I guess.

Actually many scholars believe much of Paul's "commandments" were a result of his latent homosexuality.

Good morning, why do you continue to peddle that lie that we believe that we lose our salvation daily?.........what we believe is that you can lose your salvation by a willful act of turning away from Christ and going full blown back into a world of sin and degregation, according to an answered question from you that I asked sometime back a man can still be saved despite leaving his first love ( Christ ) and going fully back into the world sinning and dying in that state without making it back to God before having died, so stop lying on people and twisting our meaning asc well as thatnof the written Word.

But i am not personally insulted by you. Honestly I just don't respect how you go about your agenda and what your agenda is. I think it is based on hate and your ego makes your honestly very suspect at times. But you are just an anonymous name on a message board. There have been posters I have known better that have gotten under my skin but I can't say you have been one of them. I don't think I am god. I just call bigotry when I see it. And your general feelings and generalizations about the faith lead me to believe if you are not a bigot you are very close to one at least far as most of the faith is concerned. Saying things like people don't need to apologize to others because they can ask the sky for forgiveness is what I would say is an example of both your questionable ethics and an example of your border-line bigotry and just several disrespect for people who believe differently than you do at this particular point in your life
Good morning Skom, that was an excellent and very astute post.

My questionable ethics, bigotry and disrespect, huh? You never learn, do you? You insist on chattering about people.

So be it. Do you mind if I start calling you Dim?

Ten days, huh? How did that go, Dim? Did you show them what you were made of?

Sure you do. You demand forgiveness from the chimney flue, and the account is paid. You're going to heaven! After all, you're not perfect, just forgiven, right Dim?
