He got through to Paul, Jonah and anybody else who would listen. What made Abraham so special that God chose him to be the father of the nations? He listened. He believed. He trusted.

Not all people do......nor will the Father force them to.
 Quoting: Shamar


He won't have to - once people see Him as He is, it will be a no-brainer. The notion of somehow "rejecting" Him won't even register.

Would you agree that the world is blinded? In the Law, slaves who are blind are required to be set free. Further, Jesus told the Pharisees, "if you were blind, you would have no sin".

Luke 12: "The Son of Man came to send fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled"

Exodus 22: "If fire breaks out and catches in thorns, so that stacked grain, standing grain, or the field is consumed, He Who kindled the fire shall surely make restitution."
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 8788578


Then that makes the whole of scripture nothing but nonsense and meaningless drivel.
 Quoting: Shamar


So I guess we can mark you down as one of the multitudes for whom Hellfire is the central axis holding the whole thing together? Cuz there are scores of "believers" here at GLP who can't conceive of *any* reason to walk with God without the threat of eternal damnation motivating them. You take away their scary flaming idol, and they suddenly don't see any point.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 8788578


I can see how some might look at it that way. I myself was one who jumped on the band wagon with my "free ticket out of hell" years and years ago. Since then, I have come to think that people who do that don't really know the Father......which, knowing Him, is His desire.

It's true that He will judge the heart, as well as our deeds and many will be saved but will have no rewards, and will have lots of hay and stubble to be burned up.

The truth also is, there are some, maybe even many who are truly evil....who have no love of truth or even love itself. These are the ones who I believe will just be burned up.

The thing is, with universalism, if all people are saved to reign with our King, no matter how evil they are the character of our Creator is obliterated. While He is a Creator and not a "destroyer" ... to be made in His image, we also must be creators and not destroyers. If we live our lives in opposition to His image, by AHYH's own definition, we will be destroyed. Otherwise, AHYH would be a liar by His own standards.

Our King ransomed mankind, but being ransomed, or bought with a price, is not the only condition that is part of His eternal covenant. He also pardons...... but pardon only comes with repentance.

I believe I am understanding you to say that after a certain amount of time everyone will come to a state of repentance at which time they will be pardoned. I don't hold that belief........I believe they will be burned up before they will repent. Only ha satan et al will remain for eternity to stare into the face of AHYH.
Love is a state of Being. Your love is not outside; it is deep within you. You can never lose it, and it cannot leave you. You can feel the same life deep within every other human and every other creature. You look beyond the veil of form and separation. This is the realization of oneness. This is love. What is God? The Eternal One Life underneath all the forms of life. What is love? To feel the presence of that One Life deep within yourself and within all creatures. To be it. Therefore, all love is the love of God.

Death is a stripping away of all that is not you. The secret of life is to die before you die - and find that there is no death.

Re: What type of monster God sends my loved ones into hell...
The Bible reveals an important, yet often overlooked trait of God's nature and that is his thirst for blood. From the beginning of his dealings with man he has shown his preference for spilled blood; he accepted Able's offering of sheep's blood and rejected Cain's offering of grains and plants (Genesis 4:3-5). God has told man that the shedding of blood is required to be forgiven of sins (Leviticus 17:11, Hebrews 9:22). In the Old Testament, millions of animals were slaughtered and their blood poured onto altars and burned in a futile attempt to please God. The smoke from the burning flesh and blood was such a sweet scent to God (Exodus 29:18, Leviticus 1:9), that his anger was appeased when he smelled the sweet, burning blood (Genesis 8:21) Even the human/god sacrifice of Jesus is compared to the sweet smelling barbecue of an animal (Epehsians 5:2). Why is blood so sweet to this vampiric God? Why is blood required to be spilled in order to receive forgiveness from this "merciful" God? Don't ask these questions, "just believe," you will be told. Besides why risk ending up in an eternal barbecue just because things smell a little strange to you?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 18933597


Why did they ever give up on the fire and brimstone, animal butchering badass God? That would get me to church, not the weakling effeminate whoopsy daisy Save-the-Africans agenda they're pushing nowadays.

 Quoting: Shamar


The key (which I guess I've considered an implied given in all this) is that those "evil" people will *not* be saved as-is - God's judgments are designed to change the hearts. Jonah and Isaiah both give us the bottom line of the process:

Jonah 2: I cried out to the Lord because of my affliction,
And He answered me.

Isaiah 26: For when Your judgments are in the earth,
The inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.

Hopefully we as christians understand this process firsthand, assuming we were ever sinners. . .though many christians, I can only conclude, must never have been sinners based on how effortlessly they condemn and scorn sinners. One would think if they were ever fallen and lost, they would have some trace of compassion or empathy for the masses in such conditions. Like the Pharisees they think they're Somebody because of their status with God. They think they've *done* something to merit salvation.

They also don't trust that God can change anyone, even the worst of us, and applaud Him for allegedly disposing of them.

Furthermore, we might want to look at the bible's definition of "destruction":
Deuteronomy 4 warns the Israelites that they'll be destroyed (also apollymi in the Septuagint) when they adopt the ways of the heathen and serve idols. This "destruction" of the children of Israel is defined there as being scattered among the nations to serve more idols, and includes the provision that when they finally seek God, they'll find Him, because God is merciful and will not(?) destroy them. We can see here that "destruction" is not absolutely an annihilation in which persons cease to exist, yes? In this case, it's referring to earthly difficulties. People use the term "destroy" in the same exact allegorical manner today, usually when talking about merely defeating someone or "putting them in their place". Nevertheless, we've been brainwashed via Religion's fossilized mindset that "destruction" unquestionably equals the disastrous and eternal ruin of one's soul with no remedy or recourse whatsoever.

(Manasseh) Kings: For he rebuilt the high places which Hezekiah his father had destroyed; he raised up altars for Baal, and made a wooden image, as Ahab king of Israel had done; and he worshiped all the host of heaven and served them. He also built altars in the house of the Lord, of which the Lord had said, “In Jerusalem I will put My name.” And he built altars for all the host of heaven in the two courts of the house of the Lord. Also he made his son pass through the fire, practiced soothsaying, used witchcraft, and consulted spiritists and mediums. He did much evil in the sight of the Lord, to provoke Him to anger. He even set a carved image of Asherah that he had made, in the house of which the Lord had said to David and to Solomon his son, “In this house and in Jerusalem, which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel, I will put My name forever; and I will not make the feet of Israel wander anymore from the land which I gave their fathers; only if they are careful to do according to all that I have commanded them, and according to all the law that My servant Moses commanded them.” But they paid no attention, and Manasseh seduced them to do more evil than the nations whom the Lord had destroyed before the children of Israel.

Furthermore, Jesus says "apart from me you can do nothing." How likely is it that He really meant "except repent"?

And even going deeper on the question of repentance, consider that on the cross, Jesus forgave those who nailed Him up there - we know there's no way they were repentant, because they didn't even know what they had done.

Christianity Inc. is notorious for raising the bar so they can claim special privilege over the unclean masses. Modern Pharisees have reduced salvation to a work of the flesh and revel in casting judgment on those who haven't yet jumped through this carnal hoop. Ultimately, christians largely don't understand salvation. They don't grasp that the old man has to "die" to allow Christ to reign within them in newness of life, and that the method God uses to accomplish this is "fiery trials".

The core difference between those truly following Christ and those not yet saved is merely the timing of their ordeals. To be In Christ, our old self has to be reckoned dead. If he remains on our internal throne, there's a problem, and we aren't graduating until it's dealt with. Walking the hard road is inevitable.
God is no respecter of persons, and "All will be salted with fire".
If we think we get a free ride for reciting a sinners prayer, we've missed the whole point. We can either yield to the fire now voluntarily, or do our best to postpone them until it's no longer optional.

The Prodigal left home to indulge in his fleshly pursuits, and against popular Christian inclination the Father *let* him do so. After a time, he "came to himself" and recognized his plight, and willingly headed home, without being manipulated by any arm-twisting or religious lecture. And who bitched and pouted at the happy return? The jealous religious sibling, who felt he deserved special treatment for staying put instead of running off to squander the family fortune.

1 O Lord, Almighty God of our fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and of their righteous seed; who hast made heaven and earth, with all the ornament thereof; who hast bound the sea by the word of thy commandment; who hast shut up the deep, and sealed it by thy terrible and glorious name; whom all men fear, and tremble before thy power; for the majesty of thy glory cannot be borne, and thine angry threatening toward sinners is importable: but thy merciful promise is unmeasurable and unsearchable; for thou art the most high Lord, of great compassion, longsuffering, very merciful, and repentest of the evils of men. Thou, O Lord, according to thy great goodness hast promised repentance and forgiveness to them that have sinned against thee: and of thine infinite mercies hast appointed repentance unto sinners, that they may be saved. Thou therefore, O Lord, that art the God of the just, hast not appointed repentance to the just, as to Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, which have not sinned against thee; but thou hast appointed repentance unto me that am a sinner: for I have sinned above the number of the sands of the sea. My transgressions, O Lord, are multiplied: my transgressions are multiplied, and I am not worthy to behold and see the height of heaven for the multitude of mine iniquities. I am bowed down with many iron bands, that I cannot life up mine head, neither have any release: for I have provoked thy wrath, and done evil before thee: I did not thy will, neither kept I thy commandments: I have set up abominations, and have multiplied offences. Now therefore I bow the knee of mine heart, beseeching thee of grace. I have sinned, O Lord, I have sinned, and I acknowledge mine iniquities: wherefore, I humbly beseech thee, forgive me, O Lord, forgive me, and destroy me not with mine iniquites. Be not angry with me for ever, by reserving evil for me; neither condemn me to the lower parts of the earth. For thou art the God, even the God of them that repent; and in me thou wilt shew all thy goodness: for thou wilt save me, that am unworthy, according to thy great mercy. Therefore I will praise thee for ever all the days of my life: for all the powers of the heavens do praise thee, and thine is the glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Let it be-come you! It means Stop seeking your higher self! It is seeking you! Stand still in your mind to calm the waters of your mind and then it shall find you, so you can ride those waves together!
your true self lies somewhere between your heart and your consciousness. It is called the heart consciousness,which is the creator, which is you!
The heart create the emotions and our mind evoke its purpose, from which we dream the life we live in order to imagine the nature of reality and finally remember love!

The highest Purpose of our mind is the ability to Forget! Go on and Forgive yourself!
There is no love in truth but there is truth in love!
Be authentic, nobody else can do it for you!

Re: What type of monster God sends my loved ones into hell...
Can you imagine the audacity?
Little pieces of mud judging
the Creator of the Universe!!!???
The perfect infinite all powerful, all loving,
all knowing ruler of Heaven and Earth,
being called on the carpet by His creatures?

Abraham did it to His face in Genesis 18, and my understanding is that this guy has a pretty decent standing with God ;)

2 Timothy also says this: “The Lord knows his own,”[a]

and,

“Let everyone who claims he belongs to the Lord
stand apart from wrongdoing.”

Sorry, I'm not sure I follow how these relate to the topic. . .?

I don't understand how you can not follow the relationship? 2 Timothy 2 does not support universalism at all, and the two verses I posted are very clear about that. The Lord knows His own......not everybody is "His own."

And if you ARE His, you (anyone) will cease from wrongdoing (repent).

May I suggest reading Numbers 16? In particular, verses 5 and 26 ~ then read Nahum 1, in particular verse 7.
Love is a state of Being. Your love is not outside; it is deep within you. You can never lose it, and it cannot leave you. You can feel the same life deep within every other human and every other creature. You look beyond the veil of form and separation. This is the realization of oneness. This is love. What is God? The Eternal One Life underneath all the forms of life. What is love? To feel the presence of that One Life deep within yourself and within all creatures. To be it. Therefore, all love is the love of God.

Death is a stripping away of all that is not you. The secret of life is to die before you die - and find that there is no death.

Re: What type of monster God sends my loved ones into hell...
The sado-narcissistic abrahamic god of christianity, judaism and islam, of course. What a nasty piece of work he is.

The good news is, though, that such god does not exist. He's just a nightmare dreamed up by a bunch of primitive desert-dwelling people. When you read the bible, it soon becomes obvious that the so called prophets were often suffering from schizophrenia, delusions of grandeur and/or other psychological afflictions. However, the tribal rulers soon realized that these hallucinations describing a vengeful, omnipotent and omniscient god could be useful in gaining more power. They associated themselves with the god and god's authority and cracked down on independent thinking that could become a threat to their grip on power.

Agreed, 100%. But not everyone is there yet. Most people will not come into redemption until after they die.

Unfortunately, not everyone is as wise and exemplary as those pious Super-Christians who were bright enough to repent without any need of the Holy Spirit's intervention ;)
