of the ultimate correctional facility.


It can only be asserted otherwise by the claim that God doesn't and never will love all human beings. Some will say this of course.

Hb 12:6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.

1Jn 4:19 We love him, because he first loved us.

Interesting concept. I often think he's depicted as the maniacal despot of a corrupt celestial government but prison warden will do. Mind if I use that analogy in the future?

This thread is so funny... these arguments are just striking me as funny anymore. "He who sits in the heavens shall laugh..." This thread has made me laugh out loud. And yes, indeed, if there is any true justice in this wretched, evil world, we can rest assured that God the Father of spirits will make sure that true justice is done. I believe it says somewhere in the scripture that we can be sure that "God will do what is right". Also, don't you just picture Jesus opening up giant iron prison bars when you hear him say:

I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death. ( Revelation 1:18 )Jesus overcame all sin and death by his resurrection: behold, I am alive for evermore.
