Why Won’t God Forgive Everyone?
I started this article on March 4, 2012 at about 6:30 AM, but got sidetracked about an hour later after nearly finishing when improving the translation of the passage below, and trying to figure out what the last verse meant, and as usual, because of my browser being overloaded with tabs and bad scripts in websites, and stupid spam sites sneaking in spam, eventually forcing me to close it, and then me becoming too tired to continue writing on with the subject. I’m sure that happens to millions of writers these days. But I’m publishing this anyways since I can’t figure it out. Hopefully for once someone can explain a verse to me. Here’s the original article from yesterday, with just a few typo corrections to the passage on the bottom:
It occurred to me a few hours ago (remember when I wrote this) why God chose not forgive so many billions of humans, as sad and astoundingly cruel a figure as that is. It was necessary to show he saves out of his choice, rather than being a slave of emotion, as if his love were something merely dictated by an uncontrollable law of his personality, which would then diminish the value of his love. For some that would see to be just as goo d a God as one who saves out of choice, and by saves I don’t merely mean “decides” and as if by the snap of a finger, with an apathetic or ho hum no big deal attitude, because remember, Jesus had to suffer immense pain we can’t even imagine in place of of just a single sinner, an eternities worth for just one person, let alone possibly over a hundred million of them. Perhaps God could have decided to let his desire that all men to turn to him dictate his will on that matter, and so end up literally suffering for all the world, rather than figuratively. I’m guessing he could have, otherwise it wouldn’t be a choice, but I’m not clear about that, so maybe I’m wrong, and it’s still his choice in that he can simply does have the ability to suffer for all or not, but like I said, decided to demonstrate it by abandoning billions of people, a number so large that there could be no doubt or question that God is not a slave of his heart. And that could and does also demonstrate another thing about God, which is that his decisions can be relied upon being that none of them are decisions motivated, at least, merely by emotion, but in harmony with logic. For example, if God decided to kiss ne of his children in Heaven, you could know that thought it was motivated by love, it was allowed to happen by his logical choice to show love to someone whom he forgave and who loved him, rather than a kiss directed at anyone, whether it was a demon or angel, and if so, would make God similar to a drunk and adulterer, rather than the “jealous” God he claims to be over unfaithfulness.
There is another reason I realized why he would abandon so many, which occurred to me years ago, maybe four, and that was that it would so that the torment of God having completely abandoned humans in Hell wouldn’t cause them complete loneliness, but so they would have some comfort of being with others. But, as I was writing this paragraph my mind had actually come up with something more accurate before typing that previous thought, and that was that it would be so that they wouldn’t feel such unbearable loneliness that would cause them insanity and so, the inability to suffer what they deserved. a despair greater than what their punishment deserved, and would be buffered by the knowledge that there were with a literal world of others.
I often think about what it would be like to be in Hell, how incredibly horrible it would be to be in complete darkness, “blacker than black” or in some sort of incredibly depressing gloomy light, while feeling like you were always suffocating, or some miserable pain of some sort I dread, some irritation that will never go away, crying while speaking all the time, screaming out for relief for all eternity though knowing you will get none, being unable to stop cursing God because of the despair and pain, and taking it out on the people next to you, and if in chains, perhaps eternally stuck with the same people, and getting sicker and sicker of them, and always taking your anger out on them, and never being able to hear them well because of howling winds. A world where there is nothing new to see except people who look like corpses without any beauty, who are so rotten looking, that you can never be sure if they are who they say they are, and who are in such despair, that you can never be sure if they are lying about whatever they say simply to lift their depression. And a worm is always biting at you, and perhaps punishing you in response to whatever sin you commit by biting into you, and you can never get it off you or out of you. When I think about that, it compels me to stop doing wrong, to stop doing wrong for pleasure, because the future holds greater pleasures I can’t imagine, and disobeying God is so hated by him, that he would do that to you if you were unforgiven. And to sin weakens faith, so a person, even if forgiven, may end up sinning so much that they are tormented by the thoughts I just described. So cannot escape their misery on Earth by giving into sin, because ironically, they are punished by a virtual Hell in their mind, the torment of always wondering if they are going to Hell, and if it will be worse than they imagine. It seems like to me a naturally logical consequence of going against a Universal Law of Doing What is Wrong and Going Against Truth.
Everyone is faced with this same dilemma: Risk turning to God, and end up failing to be forgiven, and then worse off because, as the Bible says, you knew God’s goodness but rejected it (and that would include knowing more correctly right from wrong, and so having less of an excuse for doing wrong from them on, and heaping ever greater punishment on yourself that will last forever in Hell) or living a life in ignorance of God but paying severely for deliberately avoiding him. And say you did choose deliberate ignorance for bliss or sinning without ignorance of God’s laws (either one): you’re still faced with either living life as morally as you can and which might end up you living a life of Hellish boredom and being tormented with cravings to do wrongs that you increasingly wish to do (and because of that, being increasingly more irritable and likely to take your anger out on people who didn’t deserve it. And that results in possibly less enjoyment or enjoyment cut short so to speak depending on how the person reacts. Usually it’s a negative reaction, which will sadden and anger the person retaliated against even more), OR, TO suffer as little as possible by doing whatever you want to the degree you think it is safe, and risk the same possibility of a long time in jail, severe physical and or psychological injury from retaliation, and wrecking your relationships or attempted ones. And living life with a plotting type of mind in which you are always thinking of how to hide any of your intentions that go against the person you want to have a relationship if you know they disapprove of them or might. And as a result of living the deliberately ignorant or sinful life (and both are sinful, just one more guilty than the other because of their knowledge of God), being punished more severely. There is one hope though, that everyone’s punishment in Hell will be the same (with perhaps the exception of evil rulers the Bible seems to say, and perhaps officials, like police and judges, and maybe even teachers of right from wrong, and therefore parents too), but the Judgment of God before going to Hell is going to make the difference, since then he will finally say to you what he has been waiting to say to your face, things to “tell you off” with so to speak. It will be like a dad who beats his child for doing wrong, terrifying and severely hurting the child, before throwing him out into a dark hot and dry night in a rocky and windy desert.
So these are the choices: Turn to God and suffer what Satan throw at you or deny you now in exchange for eternal peace and joy, a never ending party with no pain physical or mental ever, not even slight suspicion or confusion, or gamble to see how much peace and joy you can get in this life, how close you can get to perfect, knowing that for the past 4000 years, that even if some had obtained it, no one else appears to be getting that, not even the rich, and having to rely on subjective, possibly twisted evidence for a an afterlife in which everyone or most are happy or get to reincarnate, hoping on signs like silver coin appearing on your door after your friend or mean dad dies, a sign that God doesn’t just save fundamentalist-type Christians or so called saints or even decent people.
For someone who does turn to God though, and knows they were forgiven, and who lives a life mostly free of severe sins, and didn’t come close to any of the worst, they will die peacefully, even if tortured to death, and will have no to little fear of Hell, and whatever better way to die than that? And Christians don’t have nothing to base their faith in, they have an endless amount of evidence, even though it’s incomplete. And not just any evidence, but extraordinary evidence, endless supernatural events of incredible kinds, miracles, angel sightings, demon sightings, an entire universe of wondrous designs and things too amazing to be coincidences of some random explosion for billions of years ago, wondrous mysteries that always hint at a God who is being deliberately mysterious through all kinds of strange phenomenon, like UFO sightings, strange things that can’t be determined to be natural or not, like the Marfa and Brown Mountain Lights, and dinosaur sightings where seemingly no dinosaur could possibly still live freely, Bigfoot and sea serpent sightings and strange sounds that at least most of us cannot find a source for. For those who have no doubt that God is perfectly just, and who can accept going to Hell or Heaven and getting whatever God gives them without complaint, who have no delusions to break about what they deserve and who God is, at least they will have no worries about being punished and humiliated more than they deserve. But woah to those who are drunk in mind, who have been deceived into thinking they were a friend of God, and worse, that lies they teach in his name, that wreck and destroy lives before their eyes, but don’t stop lying, and worse: who are paid to lie and destroy, for the King will say to his attendants:
“‘Bind him hand and foot and cast him into the outer darkness.” and “In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'” – Matthew
Such people will wake up out of their comfortable dream and into a permanent nightmare. And how much worse will it be for those who deliberately rob “sheep” under the pretense of love for God, under the twisted teaching of “tithing for money” and worse, and unfriendly to and backstab or worse, bellystab those who trusted in them? “Woe” indeed to false Christian teachers who know they are lying for money, giving people a false way to Heaven (telling the sheep and goats that they can work their way into Heaven) and who have no mental illness as an excuse for their cruel greed. Those misleaders are sons of Hell.
I say, it’s better, if you won’t give in fully to God, to, as the wisest man whoever lived (King Solomon) advised:
“Be not righteous overly; neither try to make yourself overly wise; why destroy yourselff (which is what will happen if you try)? Be not overly wicked, neither be immature; why should you die before the full time we usually live to be at the most? It is good that you should take hold of the one; yes, also from the other withdraw not thy hand; for he that fears God shall discharge himself of them all.
The narcissist prizes attention, the psychopath is a sadist, the addict cares only for comfort and pleasure.
A true Christian seeks to conform to God's will; a self-centered man exalts his own will.
A logical man sees the universe and worships the Designer; an when an atheist sees it he resents his powerlessness, envies and scoffs.
To deny God's existence is to deny the existence of truth and right from wrong because without a God, right and wrong are simply opinions of imperfect beings and where they go when they die, who knows? What I mean by truth and right from wrong are the redundant terms, "absolute truth", "absolute good" and "absolute evil". So then, to deny the existence of God is neither logical nor moral.
