Wut? No welcome wagon?
It’s been a while since I posted other than a little board I got settled into and dumped on one too many times. Then I went to another site where it was required that you get 100 posts before you could write to any of the interesting controversial places, so I blitzed out 100 trivials with resounding approval that really amazed me and then I tried unsuccessfully to get anything serious discussed without inciting negative responses from the Mods, even though I was completely benign. I was so sweet, in fact, I made myself nauseous. Does anyone here do the traditional arguments about hell? Well, let's see.
This is the post I wrote:
Awww, we’ve been shut down in the Seeker’s Lounge for being potentially inharmonious and divisive in a topic designated as lending itself to excessive controversy, inappropriate with the forum decorum. I thought we were doing so good too. As you can see from the post below, there was virtually no blood shed, but we can continue here and not ruffle any feathers. I changed the title to something a little more controversial, befitting this new location but be nice and nobody loses an eye.
The greatest love a person can show is to give his life for another. But let’s not make this a limited statement. How about this: Jesus was not a man doing the greatest thing a man can do for his friends, he even died for his enemies. How much greater is that love? Limitless.Sion wrote:
God created some for honor and some for dishonor. The devil will curse God, as unjust, even as he is being thrown into the lake of fire. Everyone who is written in the Lambs book of life will make it there into Gods kingdom. But Christ only died for His friends. So the true answer to your question is "which one were you created for?" find your place with God while the door is still opened. There comes a time when the Lord stands up and closes the door. When you die, and a time when the door is closed and no one else can get in.
13 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends.
14 You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.
By saying God created some for dishonor and some for honor in this context of hell, are you suggesting that God created some for hell and some for heaven? I hope not, because that’s not what it says. Even the devil was created an anointing cherub with music built right into his innards. An amazing creature. Hell was created for him and his followers, he was not created for hell, btw. I hope you will agree here.
