Biggest christian dating site backdating scheme
Besides the mundane answers like laziness, shyness, etc., the answer, I believe, lies in the fact that if they really meditate on the idea of hell they could not believe in a loving, just God. Prayed about it–no insights received as you might expect. If God is good and hell is real then we must redefine what we mean by good as it pertains to God. They believe their son, whom they love dearly, is going to be tortured forever. I wonder what it means to demand consistency from people who subscribe to a (supposedly) delusional “you got word that soon, the Nazis were going to invade” Well, how soon?
I think a lot depends on whether there is a specific date or whether it’s just something vaguely in the future and not expected to happen tomorrow. His parents intellectually know that he is going to die at some point but they don’t expect it to happen soon and they certainly don’t expect it to happen tomorrow.
Jesus said, “no one comes to me unless the Father draws him.” Salvation is not a matter of convincing someone about an intellectual issue; it’s about responding to the direct call of God.
And, for the record, I personally don’t believe that it is God’s decision that people are excluded from “heaven,” as it were; I think it’s the individual’s choice.
Let’s say we all lived in Poland at the start of World War II and you got word that soon, the Nazis were going to invade the town where several of your friends and family lived.I made several attempts throughout my teenage years to quit masturbation.I even got an ‘accountability partner’ where we both swore off masturbation and kept tabs on how long we lasted.So there seems to be something weird about the they believe? If you really believe this, you shouldn’t have to tell yourself, “You’re right, I really should try harder to evangelize.” No, if you really believed, you would already have that motivation! And if you really believed, you wouldn’t need to constantly repeat the doctrines of Christianity to yourself, and do everything you can to “build up your faith.” I don’t need to remind myself that the Holocaust happened or that gravity is real. Um, well their beliefs aren’t just amoral propositions. So if they think God wants them to play life a certain way, they are obligated to comply.I don’t need to constantly “build up my faith” in the existence of magnetism. Hence, wearing a seat belt makes sense if it is their duty in this life to take care of it until the time is right.
