You do know this was sarcasm, right? Maybe not in good taste but people actually believe this.

Hey, I didn't make the rules up. God is holy and just, you keep forgetting that. He can't have heathens in His holy presence.

Certainly they have no excuse, IT SAYS IT CLEEEEEAAAAAR AS DAY IN SKRIPCHUUUR.

The Bible clearly teaches that all except Jesus have sinned -- (1 Pet 2:22). Rom 3:23 clearly condemns all under sin. But when it mentions people like Job, Noah, Zacharias, and Elizabeth as people who were "blameless" and "righteous" it is not saying that they are not sinners. It is saying that they were godly people, who kept the commandments of God and in that sense, they were righteous. But of course, we realize that no one can keep the commandments of God perfectly which is why all people are deserving of damnation (Eph 2:3) and why we need a savior. If righteousness can come through the Law, then Christ died needlessly (Gal 2:21).

All of Adam's descendents are grouped together in condemnation.

Hi Zero7!
I'm VERY SORRY for mistaking your sarcasm!! (But very glad to hear that that's what it was!)
(At least no one will have any doubts now..!!)

Many blessings to you!
brian

Why are people here contantly rating and judging other poster's lovingness? Does making comments like that make you feel like a better Christian than the other person?

Because He said we'll know them by their fruits; and considering what the fruits of the Spirit are, it does condemn quite a few in their doctrines.

You have made the same comments to me, so what is your answer to your own question.

Oh yeah, that's "Different".

If I were a starving baby.. I'd be stealing. Seriously though... you have compassion on them because they are children or because they are starving?

Where in the bible does it say his mercy endures forever for ONLY those who think like Verna?

It is written? LOL YOU could have left this portion of your post out! Judge Jury and Executioner all wrapped in a neat little verna.
