Yes they do June, God does not play favorites.<quoted text>
If belief freed you from suffering, then you might have me interested in your theology.
But there's a lie involved, because Christians that do believe in Jesus suffer the same as all other people of the world, making it plain that the debt was never paid by the fictional Jesus.
He makes it rain on the just and unjust.
The difference is faith will move mountains.
Jesus Himself was a man of sorrow,
King James Version (KJV)
53 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?
2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
4 Surely he hath borne our grief's and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
