'servetus'

Please read: John 3:16, Romans 8:7, and Ephesians 2:15.

You are in enmity with God and is clearly evident from your postings.

Shalom Malekim!!!

Dear 'servetus',

Please share your thoughts as you start a thread. Please be mindful of the fact that posting too many different thoughts/questions in a short span only confuses others of your intentions. Additionally, it is only fair to expect others to respond after reading your observation(s) on the questions you posed. This is a fair rule and it applies to all.

Waiting to hear from you!

God Bless!

Serventus,

God created all things. God's only enemy is "sin" And God does not love this enemy because that would violate His Holiness. God did not create sin, but men choose sin. God loves men, but hates the sin.

george p. koshy...you are judging me...only God can judge...you can not say what i clearly am if you do not know me. welcome to the internet.

varghese...if i have a question why do i have to share thoughts?my intention is to have my questions answered with a biblical basis not one that comes from man. that is a truely fair rule because i have lots of questions and God only knows how much time.

moses you bring a good point im suprise no one here question you on your name yet...if jesus taught us to love our enemies (and hate sin) am i right in saying that God even loves those who are in hell?

Dear Servetus,

God does love all the men on earth. But he hates sin. Thats why he has given us a time period till his second coming to beleive in him and withdraw from sin. You are given a choice to beleive or not to beleive in him. Its up to you to be a part of the heven or a part of hell. So thats what i could understand from the bible that the lord will not love the one's who chose to be the part of hell.But his wish is that every body should become a god's child (jonh 3:16). Not the child of Dirty saiten. If anybody has any other openion please tell me.

Brother Servetus,

Yes God love enemies.
Since God is love he can not hate.
See one example at the cross. He had no complaints against anybody. He hate none. Does that mean those people escaped the consequences of the sin they had committed? All those who are enemies of God will perish likewise.

At the same time remember one thief got the opportunity to receive the grace, though this grace was available to everybody present there. God is love and he will forgive every sinner provided he repent.

Now who are the enemies?
Those who rebel/disobey God are his enemies - those who do not accept God's authoritiy and they are called sinners. However, God love them and see them understand the truth and come back.
Likewise we being God's children also love sinners but that does not mean we agree/approve the sinful nature.

due to time constraint I am not able to provide scriptures at the moment.

Thomas

'servetus'

you can answer this question yourself if you replace the word 'God' with yourself and 'enemies' with your own children in the thread question.

Dear Job,

I do not want to offend you, but I find your post funny.

OK.

Let us replace the words in the following sentence.

"Those who rebel/disobey God are his enemies - those who do not accept God's authoritiy and they are called sinners."

Should it read...

"Those who rebel/disobey servetus are his servetus - those who do not accept servetus's authoritiy and they are called sinners."

"However, God love them and see them understand the truth and come back."

Should it read...


However, servetus love them and see them understand the truth and come back.

or, did you mean something else?

No offence meant.

God bless you,
John

Dear John,

The 'so called' intuitive riddles put forth by servetus who quotes in and out of Bible and then asking questions like these made me type the above answer.

Dear Job,

Thanks for clarifying. You meant the question that he posed on the caption of this thread...


"question...does GOD love his enemies?"

Let us not waste time replacing and finding the answer as...

"question...does servetus love his children?"

That is wonderful.

John

Servetus,

I was only replacing the words that Job15 wanted you to do. I have no intention of cracking jokes at you, or hate you or show some special love.

Your questions are either funnier, or beyond any body's perception.

Look at what you asked...

"am i right in saying that God even loves those who are in hell? "

Do you know who go to hell? Answer this question.

With love
John
