We May Be Jackasses…But…
“Free Will: God’s Gift, Curse, Myth or Illusion?
Do you find it strange that the instrument God uses to determine whether a soul will be able to spend eternity with Him is also the instrument which will cause most of mankind to experience eternal tortures which human beings would be incapable of inflicting upon each other even if they wanted to? Professional torturers can only maintain their cruelty towards their victims for a short period of time before they must take a break. The human body and mind is simply not capable of inflicting pain upon other human beings for an extended length of time. Even sadists must take a break.
Yet for the joy of having humans made in his image love Him out of their own “free will,” (which God forced upon them, by the way) God will endure watching the majority of the children He created to suffer endlessly.
According to William P. Young, Rob Bell, (The Shack and Love Wins authors) their editors and publishers and the majority of the Christian publishing industry, God, who is all powerful, all-knowing, wise, whose mercy supposedly never comes to an end and whose wrath, according to the Bible IS supposed to come to an end, has tied His own hands through the agency of “free will.” He must helplessly watch billions upon billions of human beings be endlessly tortured because He cannot deliver them of their own insanity. Who in their right mind would choose to suffer endlessly? No one. One must be insane to make such a stupid “choice.” The teaching of Hell and “free will” to choose Hell is utterly insane. One must be insane to believe such garbage. Under this teaching God is an utter failure! Sick in His mind! What a hopeless and demonic gospel!
It is like God creating a hundred billion human beings over thousands of years and allowing them to be subjected to all kinds of superstitions, deception, cruelty, hardships, ignorance, false teachers, ruthless leaders (man’s inhumanity to man), putting them through some kind of boot camp or obstacle course similar to the idiotic television programs — whoever makes the right decisions at the right time, finds this Jesus and “endures to the end” deserves to be loved by Him and cared for by Him forever. Be zealous! “For the way to destruction is wide and the road to glory is very narrow.” Ready? Go! Remember, even the “elect” will be scarcely “saved.”
The greatest majority of human beings created in God’s own image through the “free will,” will find themselves in an eternal land-fill filled with sulfur fire that burns forever while immortal maggots continually eat their flesh. Since they are eternal beings (according to this rotten maggot-filled gospel), they must live with their defects forever. Since God doesn’t like defects (God hates sin), He won’t visit them in this eternally burning land-fill which He He must have purposed from the very beginning of time. No, these billions upon billions made in His own image must endure separation from the Perfect One and His perfect children in unconscionable torment and sufferings.
One must truly be insane to have such a wicked view of God. And I believe that is the condition of much of Christianity, Islam and Judaism. Religions of revenge are insanity. I thank God He has shown me that He will deliver all of us out of our insanity and restore all of us to a sound mind and a pure heart from which we will pour out praises to a truly loving, merciful all wise God. We WILL learn to overcome our enemies with love. We will eventually put off vengeance, hate, prejudice, murder, lies, twisting truth, bigotry, racism, sexism, manipulation, etc.
God in times past has used a jackass to speak to one of His people because he was too greedy to hear the truth. (Num. ch. 22) He is using jackasses again to reach those who think they are wise in their own eyes, yet cannot see.
Some of the Pharisees near him heard this and said to him, “Surely we are not blind, are we?” Jesus said to them, “If you were blind, you would not have sin. But now that you say, “We see,’ your sin remains. John 9:40 Some of the Pharisees near him heard this and said to him, “Surely we are not blind, are we?” Jesus said to them, “If you were blind, you would not have sin. But now that you say, “We see,’ your sin remains. (John 9:40, 41)
