    If your logic is true, then God will and is just to send all to your "hell" who haven't heard of Christ? And I don't see that......... do you see that as just?

    We also believe Christ works in us when we submit our lives to Him, we acknowledge this as His Divine Grace, The Holy Spirit. Even if we don't know the name of God or any scripture or anything of The Church, we still can respond to The Holy Spirit of God and do his will and attain Him.

    You are so right.........Jesus made it blatantly clear that what we DO, not what we think, will be the determining factor as to whether we are placed on the right or on the left.

    II Corinthians 5:21: For God hath made Jesus sin for us, who knew no sin. That we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

    Romans 8:1: Therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus.

    Job 33:26 "He restoreth unto man his righteousness"

    Clearly righteousness is God imparted. A man or woman at the time of rebirth is restored in the Father's(God's) presence with the Father's(God's) OWN righteousness. This is also recieving sonship. It's considered a legal standing before God. I don't expect many to comprehend however because of God's grace and by divine favor we are clothed in righteousness.

    Granted, it is imparted by God in His love for us.

    On our part, we must meet Him under the terms given.

    It is a synergistic work or our will yielding to His, in repentance and purification and ever increasing love of the Trinity and the "world" to come. Forcing the passions of this world based life to die that we may live unto Him, the author and finisher of our faith.

    That said for the ones who believe that God can be reached by the working of the mind and "easy believeism" that we have all seen and many of us have experienced.

    We can give our mind over to the scripture and religious activity and not our will and soul. Our life will reflect what is truly given. That is where a medium such as we have here on the forum is very limited in scope and the responsibilities that are in our lifestyles can be hidden or neglected.

    Gratefully, there are many great people across this nation that love God and His Christ in spite of the differences in doctrine and faith.
    May God have mercy on us all ! !
