[So, an all-loving and merciful God will lets millions of people burn in hell because he decided he wouldnt show up for them? You must understand, these people are innocent, they know nothing of Christianty. At all. And your God just decides to not show up for them, therefore condeming them to hell from the day they are born. Quite unmerciful and unjust huh?]
as i said before, God is perfectly within his rights to let all of us go to Hell. so if any one goes to Hell because "God does not show up" as you put ,it is not unmerciful and unjust, it is FAIR. it is what we deserve.
as i keep saying, the people are NOT innocent. they are sinners. they have all done bad things, things that are reprehensible in God's eyes! they deserve to die. we christians do not deserve to be saved. that is the merciful grace of God, that any of the horrible sinners, which is what we are, what I am, are allowed to go to Heaven at all.
[Isnt it also true that your just God would let Hitler himself into heaven, to live in paradise for eternity if he just repented his sins and meant it? So, Hitler, the murderer of millions of Jews gets into heaven, yet all these Jewish people that suffered and died because of him go the hell because they didnt repent....]
it's a very hard thing to face, but yes, this is perfectly true. i don't think you have to worry about that though, because while i don't know men's hearts like God does, i sincerely doubt that Hitler repented of his sins before he blew his brains out. and there are many Jews who have converted to Christianity. There were probably many Jews who died in the Holocaust who were Christians. it's not like Hitler actually cared what the people he slaughtered believed in. he just wanted to commit genocide.
and all those Jewish people who died in the Holocaust and went to Hell would have gone to Hell anyway if they had died natural deaths. Just like all the British people, Africans, Canadians, Muslims, Americans, and any other members of any race, culture or belief system who die without believing in Christ.
[I dont understand how that God you speak of is just and merciful...]
i'm trying to help you understand...
