|I FEEL FIRMLY|
by G David Schwartz I feel firmly that God will not condemn any hunan being to eternal damnation if because they did or did not believe in something presented to the from out of the past. I feel equally firm that God will reward a person with hell if he (or she) does not believe the reality happening before his eyes, if he perverts reality into an untruth, or if he sees a lie and does not do his utmost to negate that lie.
I do fell God will not damage anyone for living his life within the confines of appalling happiness, attitudes band manifestations of justice ad mercy toward his fellow man, and vistas as propagated by Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and humanitarians.
I do feel that God will suffer humanity with everlasting banishment if he out his true belief before the good of the majority, scones anyone for not accepting what he accepts, and claiming to possess absolute or excrete truth as a means to excelled others from your fellowship and help.
I believe atheists will go to the heaven long before religionists who reject his responsibility for the betterment of self and mankind.
I do not believe that the Master Of The Universe is in my reach and hold. But I do believe that we humans are asked to be what is called moral. And I do believe that God understated humans, better than humans understand themselves. And that that understanding is at least as important to life as is the abstract thought of love and even justice. About the Author:G.
