Today, points are shared on self-awareness, self-justification, and obtaining right knowledge of divinity.  The issue that ones personal integrity and legitimacy are challenged by divine law and sacred process first came into view within heaven, and was voiced among the holy angels.  We see it repeated upon the earth to this day.  For many, separation from Deity by the endowment of independent self-will has resulted in defiance, presumption, and rebellion.  Change and new demands for order and structure to allow communion with GOD are now in place, and appear through fixed and unchanging divine operations such as confession, correction, judgment, obedience, and punishment.  The fighter at “Yahoo!

How can I be sent to suffer in Hell if in my mind, I am correct?

Just woken up and needed an answer to this so excuse any flawed logic behind this.

Question for anyone who believes in a heaven/hell after death.

As we grow up, we apply certain values to things we come across, i.e some religious believers may value their holy scriptures and some atheists/agnostics may value empirical evidence. These “values” would be really, really difficult to manipulate as a person gets older or as a person begins to rely on them.

For this reason, why is it, that I can/would be sent to suffer (agnostic-atheist) for not believing/practicing a God/His religion when in my mind, I believe I’ve every right to be correct?

I feel like it’d be explained somewhere in the Bible or the Qu’ran, or perhaps somewhere else, but I’ve been really wondering how it can be justified.

o and good afternoon

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  And they rose up before Moses, with certain of the children of Israel, two hundred and fifty princes of the assembly, famous in the congregation, men of renown:  And they gathered themselves together against Moses and against Aaron, and said unto them, Ye take too much upon you, seeing all the congregation are holy, every one of them, and the LORD is among them:  wherefore then lift ye up yourselves above the congregation of the LORD?  And when Moses heard it, he fell upon his face:  And he spake unto Korah and unto all his company, saying, Even to morrow the LORD will shew who are his, and who is holy; and will cause him to come near unto him:  even him whom he hath chosen will he cause to come near unto him.  This do; Take you censers, Korah, and all his company;  And put fire therein, and put incense in them before the LORD to morrow:  and it shall be that the man whom the LORD doth choose, he shall be holy:  ye take too much upon you, ye sons of Levi.  And Moses said unto Korah, Hear, I pray you, ye sons of Levi:  Seemeth it but a small thing unto you, that the God of Israel hath separated you from the congregation of Israel, to bring you near to himself to do the service of the tabernacle of the LORD, and to stand before the congregation to minister unto them?  And he hath brought thee near to him, and all thy brethren the sons of Levi with thee:  and seek ye the priesthood also?  (Numbers 16:  2-10, KJV)

“Avi”, those who truly come to Christ (and are not “deceiving themselves” and lying to others) are attracted and drawn by love and operations of a divine spirit, not driven and pushed by intellect, logic, or a mind filled with anxiety.  Here are a few points to consider that have been helpful to many Christian believers, who understand it is ones spirit that must be correct:

(1.)  In the same way a person’s parents do not have to justify the fact they existed before their children, and do not need their child’s permission to exercise authority within their shared home, created beings and living creatures exist within various spheres of life (e.g., earth, heaven, the sea, the universe) and are subject to boundaries, forms and process that identify the active presence of divinity.

(2.)  GOD is a spirit who has made divinity known and visible through specific exchanges, interactions, and sacred operations.  Included are atonement, baptism, birth, covenant, Creation, death, divine law, forgiveness, judgment, love, rebirth, resurrection, sacrifice, salvation, sanctification, and suffering.

(3.)  Conditions for the eternal existence of fullness for Deity (we say, the GODhead) generates non-negotiable conditions for life experience upon the earth.  In addition to survival by acknowledging material, physical and social challenges, the living must become perfected (we say, grow, learn, mature) engaging divinity through such features as accountability, balance, commitment, expectation (we say, hope), obedience, respect, and stability.

(4.)  Sin opposes the continued existence of divine law, the Law Giver, and all divine order established and upheld through law.  Awareness and self-will in created beings and living creatures may become dominated by sin.  Sin fosters chaos, the dissolution of Creation, and non-existence as do arrogance, lack of sacred knowledge (we say, ignorance), irreverence, exaggerated pride, self-justification, self-promotion, and wickedness.

(5.)  Were we to exist alone, the only standard for what is correct could well be our own thinking.  However, life experience shows that our inner thoughts are often in conflict with the desires, goals, intent, and purposes others seek to express.  The gang of three (me, myself and I) with its finite and limited resources is error prone.  The removal of discord and resolution of disputes require various processes for communication, development of consensus, and maintenance of continuous agreement.

There is far more to be said, correctly applied, and spiritually understood.  (For example, (6.)  No one begins life with a complete and full knowledge of divinity.  Those who know GOD through intimate, organic, and personal life experiences can not hold that GOD is an abstraction, a logical construct, or an object for scientific study.  Beginning with ones inborn spirit content that exists as aspects of truth, so to speak, each person must come to know GOD for himself by accepting what divinity freely gives, and voluntarily reveals.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
