i thought so. i can not for the life of me find scripture that supports God granting repentance and forgiveness of sin to poeple after they die. but maybe someone on this forum can show us.
Let me start with saying I can give you a verse that plainly states that.
Now you show me a verse that after death there is no way to repent. Or that repenting has become useless after death.
I far from understand everything written in the Bible. So I have to find a way to learn the most important things first.
The framework. The foundation. Working from outlines toward details.
You may or may not have noticed the verses in my signature. I quoted them below. They are my favorite verses. And for me they are the framework to read/understand the Bible. Of course we can start a debate on the meaning of the words in the verses. Fine. But that also means every word you quote will de reviewed the same way.1 Timothy 2:3-4
.... God our Saviour; Who will
have all men to be saved
And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not
: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.Romans 4:5
But to the one who does not work, but believes in the one who declares the ungodly righteous
The way I see the three verses is that they reinforce eachother. Especially Romans 4:5 is extremely powerful.
"declares" => we are not asked for any input/work. It is declared.
"ungodly" => I guess that is a good word for sinner/unconverted/etc
"righteous" => the ticket to heaven so to speak.
I think/hope we can agree many/most people don't die as good Christians. I even think the standard ET number of only 5% are true Christians may be correct.
So now it looks God is a complete failure. He spoke/inspired the 3 quoted verses with great certainty but it has a fail rate of 95%. Unless..... death is not the end of the conversion process.
