The biggest problem I have with my own faith is seeing and knowing absolutely great and loving people, and being forced to believe they are going to hell because they don’t necessarily believe what I do. It’s not limited to those outside of Christians, but within the confessing community.
It bewilders me when I think about how the Lord blesses the world with so many lovely people; cute children, great thinkers, artists, writers, musicians, wonderful, saintly people of all genders, colors and races, et cetera, as I try to wrap my head around those outside of Christ not inheriting His Kingdom (according to the Bible).
Why create such beauty in the first place for it to ultimately be left separated from His loving, eternal home?
I get it: Free will. Yes, I get it.
What I have trouble grasping is why such a loving God would leave the beauty and richness that so many outside of Christianity bear, to the firey pits of a place called Hell??
Sometimes, I wonder.
Is it not a mystery???
Love them anyway. That’s what I will do. Yes, love em all. If Jesus and God are love, then I’m sticking to that, regardless of these questions I’ll never have an answer to.
