Atheist inquiry: “Should people who are immoral get away with it?
Compare these two people.
Who would go to heaven and who to hell?
Lots of people have been saying that is you are a non-believer, you do not go to heaven.
- A non-believer who follows all of the Christian moral rules
- A sinner who repents for their sins in a church
If you say that 2. should go to heaven then is your god really so utterly naive, narcissistic, and flat out GULLIBLE that he would judge a sinner who sucks up to a g-d IDOL rather than one with a solid moral compass.”
Response to Atheist’ inquiry,
Where you’ve erred in your thinking is not understanding the grace and mercy and intent of God the Father and His Plan through the New Covenant of Grace established in the innocent blood of Jesus Christ (Matthew 26:28). There is no woman or man that has existed since Adam (except for Messiah Jesus) that was or is sinless, moral, good, righteous, as we’ve all sinned and fallen short of God’s glory and His standard of perfection (Romans 3:23). If mankind could earn, or work, or be sufficiently good to find righteousness (a right standing) with God the Father, Jesus would not have needed to suffer and die upon a Roman Cross (John 3:16).
Seeing that you and I were in a hopeless condition in that God the Father demands perfection and He will NOT permit anything impure to enter His Kingdom (Revelation 21:27), God the Father, “before the beginning of Time” (2 Timothy 1:9-10) ordained the Gospel (Good News) of Jesus Christ which was first introduced in Genesis 3:15 and 3:21. In the New Covenant, God the Father through the Son and through the Spirit has told us that anyone who will humble them self before Him and repent of their sin (turn away from wilful sin) and sincerely believe in their heart, confess with their mouth, that Jesus Christ is God who died to pay their sin-debt and believe that Jesus was resurrected from the dead for their justification leading to eternal life (Romans 10:9-10), that person so believing and confessing will be forgiven of all sin, past-present-future, and they will receive the indwelling Holy Spirit (Ephesians 1:13-14) who will walk them in the process called “sanctification” where the Spirit daily-incrementally transforms their life from one of wanton sin and rebellion into a life desiring holiness and righteousness as the Spirit prepares them for life in Eternity subsequent to the death of the body in Time (2 Corinthians 5:8). The Christian does not become perfect and sinless in this life as they continue to struggle with a sin-nature but by faith in Jesus as Lord, they now have a NEW NATURE and the indwelling Holy Spirit who resides within them and they no longer live a life of wanton sin and rebellion but they desire a life that honors God and seeks to please Him through obedience and love.
None of us can earn God’s favor – no one can be sufficiently “good” to please God – all of our best works on our best day are as a filthy menstrual rag in the nose of God (Isaiah 64:6; Ephesians 2:8-9); therefore, what we could not accomplish because we’re sinners, God the Father did for us by sending His dear Son, Jesus Christ, born through the womb of a virgin woman (Genesis 3:15; Matthew 1:23) thereby circumventing the sin-nature passed to all of human kind through the seed of Adam (Romans 5:12; 1 Corinthians 15:21); this virgin birth allowed Messiah to be born into the World void a sin-nature and Jesus perfectly fulfilled the Law of Moses and the Commandments (Matthew 5:17) and thereby became the ONLY acceptable sacrifice for our sin (Hebrews 10; John 3:16-19). God the Father made Jesus, who knew no sin, to be sin for you and for me so that by trusting-believing in Jesus as our Lord we can receive the perfection and righteousness of Jesus IMPUTED over and into our personal lives and be declared “not guilty” by God the Father….as God the Father chooses (by Covenant promise) to NOT see our sin but see ONLY the perfection of His dear Son who suffered and died and bled to pay our sin-debt that we could NOT pay ourselves.
