Did it need a chance to be about you? Is that what upset you, that it wasn't?<quoted text>
It didn't have a chance to be about me..
We are not arguing over them. You may think so or think it advantageous to try to present it as someone trying to. I am simply asking for clarification. I accept what you believe and don't care one way or the other.<quoted text>
Like I said.. you and I do not know God's ways..
We really shouldn't all be arguing over them either.
Jesus came to show us Love through Grace.
Although you say things like "Jesus came to show us Love through Grace" and have quoted Bible verses in the past yet I think it is clear you don't follow the Bible. It has obviously caused some confusion in trying to understand what you are claiming you believe. Surely you realize the Bible has many verses that show not all will be saved right?
No what I am asking is why is it you couldn't sleep at night if the soul of an unrepentant child-rapist wasn't saved yet feel Scott Peterson is deserving of death? In other words, why is being accountable on Earth no problem for you but you couldn't sleep if you thought God also held people accountable?<quoted text>
In my heart, I believe not one soul will be cast in a fire
of forever and ever after..
I am not here to define God's will to you or anyone else.
I believe here on earth, we should indeed be held accountable for our
misdeeds towards our fellow man..
And in my opinion- killing someone in cold blood,
being tried and convicted of such a crime- should be payed with
There should be no other penalty but death.
You seem to want me to say I believe man is in charge of one's life but
that I believe God is not in charge of one's soul??
To me.. we are dealing with two different plains.
That's how I feel.
And if you answer nothing but this question, how is it a greater punishment to kill someone if everyone is saved then having that person spend decades in prison first? How can you not see the logical inconsistency?
