    If Jesus returns as like prophesied in the scriptures it would be a total reversal of obvious reality.

    But I'll play the game... I don't know if I would be glad or disgusted, seeing that an almighty creator would allow such a truth to be neglected and perverted and allowing so much suffering of innocent people through history. But if there was a resurrection to everlasting life where all peoples were raised with perfect bodies... hey I'm really good with that, and I will even forget those facts..

    Since Baha'is believe the Mahdi has already appeared, and you didn't join the Baha'is, then does that mean that you don't believe the prophecies have been "clearly" fulfilled?

    I think the intention of most people to disobey would change after a short time in fire. Hence I don’t see it as an eternal intention.

    Also punishment solely for disobedience? I think it would have to be disobedience of something gravely important to warrant fire as a punishment.

    What could your kids do that would make you think to burn them in punishment?

    Yes it is disobedience of things that are gravely important. But who am I to judge. God knows better.

    If I "saw" these things occurring, the first thing I would do is visit a psychiatrist.

    Would replacing the word Justice with: Fairness, Balance, or Reparations fit the spirit of the OP?
