Always the Chance for Redemption

posted by Guy Finley

Question: I have trouble accepting the traditional interpretation of hell. Would a loving God really condemn His children to eternal suffering, or do we always have a chance for redemption?

Answer: Try to realize, to begin with, that the fear of going to hell is a form of hell itself. Anyone that puts this kind of fear in another human being is a devil. God never turns His back on anyone who is willing to be corrected in their conscience.

    I truly like this comment. I come from a Christian background. I go to a Christian Church. I’m NOT like the others though. Whenever I try to convince my Christian family and friends that hell was just a place made up to make us afraid of doing wrong, it doesn’t go well. I don’t really think they’re evil though. I just think they have forgotten that the Bible was written by man and man tends to put a little of himself into everything he touches…including trying to scare all of us into being good. I’d rather be loved into being good. It wasn’t the fear of hell that brought me to God. It was the love of God that did. I just thought of something…Are you saying that the devil wrote the Bible? LOL!

    God also expects us to follow His commands of believing. Confessing, repenting AND being baptized. We can’t just simply say some words and rely in God “knowing our heart”. He has given specific instructions, and as any parent, expects them to be followed or there will be consequences. He is definitely a loving God, but as our Father we can also expect tough love.

The Interior Action that Builds Character
The character of goodness, of compassion and kindness that we would like to reflect and express before our friends (and enemies), requires that we place “its” life before our own. And yet, when we agree to this interior action of self-sacrifice, not only is our life returned to us, but we find t
