So on God's terms infinite injustice is ok? Maybe for him but not for me.

I don't know blue, God says he is just. I know I do not know all the facts of every situation. I have had to rethink and regret some of my little judgements over the years so I have to assume he knows what he is doing.

Well, it's true that I don't know everything but I feel that if I can't trust my own sense of right and wrong then I can't trust anything. Ok this really is my last word now because as I was writing this I got a call from my sister to tell me my mom is dying.

I think that is just one interpretation of many (maybe endless?) versions of the Christian faith. Everyone's interpretation can be a true one. Not necessarily a good interpretation or one I'd want to follow but it's true in the sense that one person believes it. For example, a guy might believe he can go to heaven if he puts a fruit bowl on top of his head and screams out to the heavens. To me, it sounds just as looney and far fetched as talking to a "God". But these beliefs do not hurt any other people and they probably make the person feel a sense of fullfillment or joy.

I think the Christian teachings are based on lots of abusive ideas. And sometimes I get frustrated with the teachings because they are so branched off the main idea. The main idea: Love everyone, including yourself.

Heaven sounds like a reward system for good behavior. I hate the idea of it. But I would like to live in a world where everyone loves each other.

Just remember: God doesn't NEED you, He WANTS you! His love is unconditional! That means you don't have to do anything. It is only by faith through Grace are we saved. We can never be good enough. Only Christ, the sinless man was good enough and through his death burial and resurrection are we able to spend eternity in heaven. Do miss out on heaven.

I was probably a bit hasty with that comment and I truly did not mean to offend anyone. Please accept my apologizes. Can you edit it out of the comment?
