Think 3

If eternal hell fire was a reality don’t you think Christ and the apostles would have spread the word to everyone not just to the Jews right at the beginning? What a travesty if Jesus, who supposedly came to save the entire world told His disciples to skip the Gentiles and Samaritans condemning them to eternal damnation. Is God a respector of persons? According to the traditional view of Hell and salvation, He is.

These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not. Matt. 10:5

The traditional Church has made the word of God of no effect by its traditions. Matt. 15:6-9

    Lois, why don’t your read carefully this article first. Thenask yourself, do you REALLY have a mind that can decide what could really be from God or not? If your mind is not bent towards wanting truth, how are you going to receive it?

    Lois, in all honesty, how much of the Bible have you really read? And what you read, what translation did you read? And what would you expect to be written in a book written in a language that you could understand that would convince you that your Creator was behind those words? Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father but by Me.” I have found these words experientially to be true, not because they are written in a book, but because Jesus has manifested to me in such a way that I can honestly say those words are true. But since you have decided in your own mind that all the Bible is just men’s words, then you’ve locked yourself up by your own beliefs. The Bible, especially Jesus had a LOT to say about belief and unbelief, about faith and doubt. It is your unbelief that imprisons yourself in yourself. You are trapped by your very own lie. Can you see at least from the article “programmed to lie” that our minds do indeed deceive ourselves?

    The problem is that, no matter what your beliefs about the Bible, you can find scriptures to back it up. That is why there are so many denominations, and why you can scarcely find two Christians who agree on exactly what the Bible says and what God wants. They all have their own way of interpreting the Bible. You cannot all be right, but you could all be wrong.

    Here is what I think: The Bible is a work of fiction, just like any other holy book. I cannot find a single thing in it that convinces me it wasn’t all written by human beings for a variety of human reasons, all of them selfish. The laws it gives us are exactly the kinds of laws we would expect from any human magistrate, particularly the kind who are brutal, severe, and slow to forgive. The books of the Bible were written by men who were familiar with this kind of governorship by their human overlords, so they imagined that God must be the same way. If there is anything in the Bible that was written by this God, and not merely by a human being imagining God, then I would like to know what it is.
