So What Happens to This Man?

jabcat:
He believed in God. He was a Christian Universalist.  Over the years, he was a speaker in a local congregation of believers.  He was a gifted teacher, helping lead others to belief upon Jesus as Savior.

Over time he began to develop beliefs that denied some of the essentials of the faith;  the virgin birth, the necessity of the blood of Jesus to save.  He stopped praying, stopped reading His Bible, and eventually stated he no longer believed in God.  He began to mock Christians, insult them, make crude statements and disparaging comments about God and Jesus and the Holy Spirit.  In short, he has become a persecutor of the brethren and a blasphemer.

What do you make of this man?  How do you feel about a situation such as this?  Does it affect your own faith one way or another?  What does God think of this man?  How does He view him?  How does He deal with him, and how will He deal with him? 

So what happens to this man?

He gets corrected like almost everybody else. But I think his correction will be less severe than that of any/most ETs because that man only needs to be remembered of something he knows/once knew. The ETs have to learn something entirely new.

We are all just broken jars of clay.  I believe that our heavenly Father looks upon this brother like any father would look at their child that is suffering from a severe fever. He will carry this brother. We must not judge the brother. Pray for him, love him, be there to give a helping hand when he comes out of this fever.

thinktank:
There are many scriptures, and God will have great patience and remember the works of the past. Paul said I recall you were once zealous for the gospel
repent therefore lest a worse thing come upon you.

Nathan:
How can he be corrected more or less if breaking one law is the same as breaking all of the laws?  Where does "where sin abounds grace abounds even more . . ." come in to play in that?  Should he not be given more grace because he, in our eyes, had further to fall???
