I don't need to BUY an argument, I already HAVE one...

Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam
in response to reader comment: It is quite common to know divine law. God said that he would write it on his people's hearts

...but I don't believe you could understand it if you tried since you're obviously blinded by your dogma. Human beings most certainly DID write the bible, and the 10 commandments, and the koran, and everything else that's ever been written since that's the only possiblity that doesn't require believing in magic that you and everyone else KNOWS, or at least should know, isn't real since you've NEVER seen magic happen, no one has.

But I try to keep an open mind. Let's just say you're right and there is this God and Jesus is his Son and ONLY way to Salvation/Eternal Life is through Him (I'm not sure why I or you or anyone else needs to exist forever but that's another (egocentric) story). And the only way to attain this Salvation is to accept Jesus into your heart, and receive Grace, etc. , we all know how it allegedly works. That means that BILLIONS of people are going to be condemned to eternal damnation in whatever form that is manifested for no other reason than they happened to be born in China, or Egypt, or someplace where they're going to be raised in a non-christian culture. That makes God one colossal S.O.B if you ask me. And please don't try to say that they get a chance to hear the gospel and that it's their own fault if they reject the Word because the reality is that for most people brought up to believe in a different religion than yours there is no more chance of them becoming a christian than there is of you becoming a muslim.

Oh, and by the way, according to the criteria for salvation you believe in, people like Gandhi will be excluded but Jeffrey Dahmer will be accepted. Have fun in that eternity.
