It is not God who led you to no longer believe what He has said in His word about the eternal nature of the punishment that awaits the unbeliever. You are but one of many who have veered off course from the truth and become a casualty in the spiritual warfare. Instead of facing the reality of something that makes you uncomfortable, you have chosen to reject it. That doesn't mean you have lost your salvation, once saved always saved. It just means you given yourself over to doctrines of demons.


And no they don't all believe that you must have faith in Christ in order to be saved. One of them just got through saying that believing that you must believe in Christ to be saved implies that you have something to boast about.
AMEN Mike Scripture doe NOT support ALL will be saved.

I'm sure you realize the bible teaches us to grow spiritually and become more and more like Christ, and to think more like Him. Do you think your statements above are Christ-like? Do you believe He feels the same way you do?

Anthopopathisms aside, God is always perfectly happy. God has done everything He can do without coercing man's fee will to get man to believe in Christ. In speaking the truth, I do all I can do. The fact that there will be countless numbers of unbelievers in the lake of fire will not and does not affect my happiness in the slightest. Everyone is responsible for their own decisions. I am not about to lose any sleep over those who wilfully reject the truth.

Absolutely NOT irrelevent.

LOVE is NEVER "irrelevent".

Ask God.

And I didn't ask whether how you "feel" has any bearing. I asked if you love those "many" who you see as being eternally tormented, eternally useless, etc.

That tells me all I need to know about you, and should speak volumes to your fans on this forum. That's very, very sad.

Your use of big words doesn't impress me, either.

Yes. That pretty much says it all. I wonder how many thumbs-up he'll get on that.

While I feel compassion for them, I'm not going to live my life being upset or mad. God wants us to live our lives with joy and gladness. We all make the choice of who are master will be and all we can do is show the lost the truth, but it's not up to me to make the decision for them.
