What Would You Do If You Were God?

The Bible reveals that God has promised all of us a resurrection.  That is to say, Everyone Is Going to Heaven

Would you have   opened heaven’s doors so wide if you were in God’s place?  Your answer to this question says something about your character. 

I have not said that God doesn’t judge sin, for indeed Judgment Is Upon Us.  We should all repent.

In His wisdom, God has figured out a way to judge us appropriately for our sins without sending any of us to a torture pit of literal fire for all eternity.  Would you have worked as hard at such a solution which allows no one to get away with anything but for everyone to ultimately be forgiven?  Again, your answer to this question says something about your character.

What exactly does it say about your character?  If your answer is different from God’s it means you have a different character than His.  Since He wants us to be like Him, this is confirmation that you should repent.

    I suppose since I disagree I should be silent.

    But I can’t.

    I used to believe hell was figurative, not real. I used to believe that those sent there winked out of existence and did not suffer for long. But I can’t keep those beliefs in light of scripture. A righteous God is a just God. He is the author of mercy and forgiveness, too. But ultimately He is sovereign and He has revealed wrath for some. Disbelieve as you see fit, but know that the fear of God is beginning of wisdom and work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

      You needn’t be silent at all, Lance. If you think I am wrong and that I am misleading people, you should dissent. And this comment platform is always open for you to do that.

      I do not regard “hell” as merely figurative. The wrath of God is as real as anything else in this world, and it comes in response to sin. Hell, therefore, is not something that comes after this life but rather during this life. For this reason, we must repent!

      I have never believed in annihilation, as you suggest that you did. I never found a Scriptural basis for it. I did, however, find a Scriptural basis for everyone going to heaven (The Biblical Case for Everyone Going to Heaven) even though I wasn’t looking for it. I was content with the traditional evangelical view of heaven-or-hell. Devotion to the word of God, however, eventually revealed to to me riches I was not seeking and I did not even know existed.

      As for the fear of God, that is what led me to the view I have. Had it not been for my fear of a holy God, I would never have seen this this truth in the Scripture. I would have continued in the traditions of men because I would have continued in the fear of man (Jeremiah 17:5-8).

      Having come this far by the fear of God, my intent is that it should continue to grow in my heart with each and every passing day. He is worthy of nothing less!
