Eternal torrment in hell....act of Gods mercy?
Ok, i know some of you are going,"what is this nonsense?...mercy!?!?" Yes, mercy. Think on this, (and i hope you can follow it bounces in my head) Jesus when he was praying in Gethsemane bled sweat, agonizing; "if there is anyway this cup may pass from me let it be so; but your will be done not mine" (paraphrase) the "cup" was not death, it was "our" just punishment for "our" sins; God's Wrath!!! so think about this, Jesus, creator of the world(Jn 1:1) who knew what God Wrath consisted of, in my opinion, was scared of it. That to me says something about the power and magnitude of it. So a fearful Jesus Willingly threw himself in front of us to take on all of the "anger" of God, for us!! Pretty nice of him, if anyone jumped in front of me with a bullet coming id be friends with him for life, because i owed him mine. "So what does that have to do with hell?" you ask. simply this.... whats done is done!!! Weather you believe Jesus died for you and redeemed you of your sins, or not.....HE DID!!!! you cant change it! you can only choose to be thankful for a fresh start and take his hand.... for those who (my opinion) are to stubborn to change and follow Jesus... there is punishment... a place of eternal torment where there will be "weeping and gnashing of teeth." wheres mercy?? what if Jesus never died? Jesus himself was fearful, to the point he sweat blood, so wouldn't that make HELL significantly less than what we deserve. I think if Jesus took our rightful punishment, that Hell as bad as we think it is, is done out of Gods mercy and love... Think about it, post if you agree. post if you think I'm totally wrong... just think about the price Christ paid for YOU!!!!!
