Christianity is different from other religions in that the requirement for entering heaven is to attain Gods perfection which is a very high bar indeed.
the extreme involvement of God in the process to cause the event.
Sins are not eliminate, just reallocated.
When God came as Jesus he bore the sins of the whole world for a time.
And then was forgiven through faith as all who follow Him are also forgiven by faith.
Those who reject Him are guilty twice.
They are guilty for a rebellious attitude common for all men.
They are also guilty for rejecting Gods suffering on their behalf.
So the guilt of those who accept Gods suffering as a solution for their condition have their sins removed and transferred to...
those who reject Gods suffering as a solution for their condition who are now guilty twice.
Indeed those who have been given a good understanding of what God has done on their behalf many times and have put much effort toward rejecting the pleadings of Gods spirit within their conscience, have done those who have been forgiven a great service.
In this way Gods books are balanced for God is a just God who is perfect in all things.
-Here is a definition of faith which may be helpful as the term is often misunderstood.
Faith is an understanding that God is able/willing to preform any act for a soul which freely consents to the constraints which God requires of Himself.
For any who read this.
Please note that I am made from dust and have no knowledge of how things are
going between you and God.
So please donít thank me if God tells you through your conscience
that you are at peace with Him,
and please donít hate me if God tells you through your conscience
that you are not at peace with Him.
It is my hope that this will be helpful to you also Richard.
