My response to the video:
Starts out with Hitler - Godwin’s law has been invoked. And God has forgiven Hitler? Is that such a travesty? He forgave me after all, and I am worse than Hitler according to the theology of the “Orthodox”. According to them, I not only deserve but apart from being saved by the literal skin of my confessing teeth, or by being immersed in a certain quantity of dihydrogen monoxide after the right divine name has been invoked, or by initiating myself to the alignment of certain teachings of knowledge; not only deserve…but apart from this salvation will actually be engulfed in a never ending, ceaseless, exponential, conscious, eternity of torture right beside Hitler, Nero, Stalin, and the Devil himself.
Yet, I am forgiven and Christ died for me. Is Christ a respecter of persons that sin should abound over grace in one man who was most surely possessed by a devil? Who, if history would look, would find that while he was indeed a terrible evil that the evil was born because Britain and France had made the perfect womb for such a tyranny to be born in the Treaty of Versailles?
Come on now thou charicature, why doest thou this hypocrisy before the Lord, and doeth him injustice before the very foot of the cross?
As for the victims seeing justice; Forgive your enemies first of all. Heaven should not be our balcony seat before the Medieval show, whence we might throw our rotten fruit at the prisoner spinning chained to his wheel. God forbid we should gloat over the fall of our enemies. An eye for an eye, but I tell you that we also should lose our eye and have our turn on the wheel if justice is purely held in revenge.
What about our victims? Confession through our teeth, or immersion in holy water makes it all go away? Where is their recompense?
Thank God who is Justice, that his fire is remedial for Justice, and Justice that is true. Remedial justice brings closure to both parties, ceaseless infliction of retribution without end only prolongs the hurt giving hurt for hurt, and evil in the place of good which should work for the betterment of both parties. Eternal Hell makes the victim, remain a victim, and makes the victimiser a victim of God, and makes God a victimiser.
And also, I thought the Good News was that God was shedding his mercy and grace on ALL sinners to bring them to repentance through his love…but I suppose I missed it. I guess that is what I get for reading my Bible instead of listening to a preacher give his own twist of the verse to get more of that sweet, sweet tithe!
“Absurdities and inconsistencies” - Like the Atheists who would not accept the Gospel I presented them because they saw right through the hypocritical idol I was presenting as the All-loving Christ? The God who with one hand would forgive you of everything in one second, but at the other would throw you into the worst form of holocaust that ever an empowered, creative Devil might devise? It is not because of revenge that many do not come to God! It is because of that revenge that people fear to run to him! Thou fool, do you forget the garden of Eden when man hid themselves from God in their iniquity? They feared him, because they were naked. You only perpetuate that fear in showing them their nakedness, not the clothing Christ offers made from his own skin, and blood!
The absurdity is not in God’s justice, it is in the caricature of justice and love that you have made and taught to be Gospel.
“It means pure and perfect justice” - yet you escape without so much as a smoulder for all of your wickedness and iniquity, while others burn to bear the passed load of yours; the difference? They didn’t invoke the right magical Christian spell or ritual to get to Heaven…You did…
“Overflowing compensation for anyone who has been hurt or betrayed” - IE: all of us? Some compensation that most should writhe in godless agony for all of perpetuity!
I can listen and watch no more. This video is less than a caricature, it is an outright bearing of false witness.
