You’d think he would have outgrown this narcissistic attitude by the time he became an adult.

But… according to many… apparently not.

    Funny
    He apparently got pissed off as healer too.

    I’m sure he must have done something like that as a young child, after all He was in a human shell and these bodies are frustrating. Jesus sends no one to hell, they decide to go there themselves … And it breaks His heart.

    Love it! I really want to know more about his childhood, teens and twenties.

  • Kathy Gibbs

    Is that also what he did in the Temple?

    Only he wasn’t crying…he was ticked off!

    Like Father; like Son.

    “All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows who the Son is except the Father, and no one knows who the Father is except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.”

    Then he turned to his disciples and said privately, “Blessed are the eyes that see what you see. For I tell you that many prophets and kings wanted to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it.”

    No Ciera…I do not believe anyone ever “decided” to go to hell. Furthermore if an OMNIPOTENT God created a place of eternal torture and unspeakable agony, knowing full well He was going to send the vast majority of His children into such an eternity, one can hardly argue that when they did go there…it broke His heart. According to this horrible perversion of the gospel…it was His plan all along.

    “No one ever decided to go to hell” sorry Gary, there are plenty of people who can’t wait to get there. I have been to prison. My job was to clean Death Row. There are people who choose death over life every chance they get. People who are so selfish they don’t care about anyone else. I met a guy who sold meth, got girls hooked on it so he could sleep with them, got his mother on it so he could control her, and pimped her out. He turned his mother into a hooker and he thought it was funny. Sometimes we forget there is real evil. We explain it away with psychology, or excuse it because they had a troubled past, but there are people who are consumed with hate and only want to please themselves regardless of who they hurt. They want death. They choose hell.

    Nope sorry PP…not buying it. I never said there wren’t people who deserved the consequences of their actions. Yet I bet those who you worked with did not simply show up at the prison gate one day and say “hey I’m a bad person so please let me in”.

    There is still much evil in this world. This fact does not mean I have to accept that God is an even more of an evil monster. I have come to believe that if (and that’s a big if) there is a real hell of some kind…it is temporary and restorative. Eternal damnation for tha majority of mankind (or even for one) is clearly contrary to the revealed nature of God.

    Imagine a judge told you take all of the prisoners on death row into a dungeon and slowly burn off their limbs and appendages with a blow torch, carefully keeping them alive, not allowing them to die as you torture them. Would you consider that justice?

    Now consider doing this to them for all of eternity. Is this what they deserve?

    Even the crimes of the Hitlers of this world are finite. They may deserve vast amounts of punishment, but such punishment must be finite.

    The concept of eternal torture far outweighs the evil of which any human is capable.
