Lesson learned
« on: December 24, 2010, 01:40:08 AM »
I was in a Pizza place today buying my son a gift card for Christmas (he's 24) and I heard a woman say to her little son. "Now Billy,you need to share with your sister." Billy says, "NO" defiantly. Then Momma says, "I hope someday when you get older you ask your sister to share and she won't do it. Then you'll learn."
I'm not a super parent, but I thought to myself, how will someone treating him selfishly teach him NOT to be selfish?
Do we learn to love others more because of Jesus, or would we love people more if we were physically, mentally, and emotionally abused by them?
If hellfire is eternal, how would the sinners learn and benefit from it? And even if they did learn something, of what use would that learning be since they are forever trapped?
Even that Momma wouldn't torment her child forever for not sharing, yet that's what the ET's say our Father does if we even commit one sin and die without Christ.
Even the heathen pagans know how the proper way to treat their children. How much more will our Father the perfect parent treat us?
"Why do so many people think that the Bible is only inspired at certain points -  and that  THEY are inspired to pick out which points?"

The problem is that we think we are more loving that God is...

We know there will be fiery judgments for those who have sinned deliberately... But God's judgments do not stop with putting someone to death and although they begin with everlasting destruction, that is not the end to which God brings any man.

Deuteronomy 32:39-40 (Young's Literal Translation)

 39See ye, now, that I -- I [am] He, And there is no god with Me: I put to death, and I keep alive; I have smitten, and I heal; And there is not from My hand a deliverer,

 40For I lift up unto the heavens My hand, And have said, I live -- to the age!
