You still haven't explained how punishing someone else means you can go scott free for all the nasty things that you did. So if I kill someone, my mom can go to jail in my place? Doesn't sound right.Even those that have salvation will have consequences of our sins here on earth. And we are responsible for what we do wrong. However it's a gift, of God's Grace that one is saved. We don't earn that by works.
Yes, and neither is anyone else unless they are in Christ and forgiven.
Another thing is why did God make faith the requirement for salvation instead of being a generally good person? Many people have faith in different religions, may not have faith for rational reasons, may not have heard much about Christianity, or never even heard about it? If he does want faith to be a condition, then why doesn't he hang around down here publicly so this ridiculous debate over whether he exists is completely answered?
And you haven't explained how the consequences for any sin is eternal torment. Thats like punishing an out of date insurance card in the car with life in prison, in a torture chamber.
I guess you have a right to believe anything you want if it makes you happy as long as you aren't hurting anyone else. But your beliefs don't make any sense. But I'm rambling. What matters is that Christianity's teachings are in complete conflict with Buttigieg's way of life, but I am ok with his orientation and generally like him.
