Your pun doesn’t work the way you mean it to; in the Bible story, it was the people in the boat who were saved. Just saying.

Anyway, it’s interesting that you call your macabre view God’s “experiment”. You make God sound like a mad scientist. Your view of God and hell is what missed the boat. It will drown once you are immersed in the love of God.

Jesus suffered and died so HE could give YOU a free gift

Which, if given a modicum of thought, makes no sense whatsoever.

Not including you in the "usual tares".

There is everything loving about a God who gives you the free opportunity to have eternal life through the death of His Son.

If you apply human reasoning to this, you won't get it.

If you see who God revealed Himself to be in the Bible, you will have a better understanding of why Christ's death was necessary for our eternal life.
I respectfully acknowledge your devotion. Please though respect that I am human...fully and completely. So to use the slighted...' if you have to use human reasoning you won't get it'.is nothing short of being trite..

The message of the cross does not make sense to everyone.

"For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God."

Not being trite...

I did not believe in Christ until 25.

When I say human reasoning won't get it... it's an honest assessment. Because from a human standpoint, I completely understand why none of it makes sense. But because I now see it from God's vantage point, since He has revealed it to me, I understand why Christ had to die as He did.

You don't believe in His death, burial, and resurrection.

You focus on His earthly being and being loving to others. That does nothing with regards to our eternal problem with God, and being reconciled to eternal life.

He has legions of believers who can't wait to thank Him for what He has done, what a fantastic Savior we have and how incredible he has put all this into place so we can be with HIM for eternity.

Time is running out on this grace offer that's been in effect for the last 2,000 years. The Lord's program is running in the background and what HE has written WILL happen 100%. The rapture of the believers is coming up most likely in the next 15-20 years or it could be longer. Only God knows when that last believer will be brought into the "body of Christ".......and we will all be given glorified bodies as we are taken up to heaven ( the main reason for the rapture, it's not an escape mechanism).

This entire experiment has been a short one for the Lord, the same as a week for us, and actually the Lord is just now running around in day six in His world. A day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years is a day to HIM. So six days and heading into the final #7. Don't miss the boat......don't be like the clueless who watched a ship being built for 120 years and never got on it. That boat only had ONE door (Christ) and that was a picture of salvation for us, we only have one way to enter heaven. In the account God closed the door.

All the other "gods" of supposed enlightened religions are extremely dead. They won't know you and can do nothing for you and in fact will be standing in that long line of the lost with everybody else.
It's not "free." A gift like one gets for Christmas, or a birthday is free. With Christianity, one has to pay the price of contrition, the promise of continual faith, and one must KNOW for sure that one even has faith.

Well, I suppose that free gifts ARE better than the gifts you have to pay for.
