If we come to the Bible without a heart that is fully convinced of God’s overwhelming love that truly wishes none to perish, then many scriptures will seem to underscore our belief that some are born evil and some are born good—or rather that some are redeemable and some are not.
This has been one of the, if not THE, most harmful doctrines in history.
Why do I do this? Is it because I enjoy grossing you out with horror stories of what can happen, the tales of sterility and pain and nasty, nightmare growths in unmentionable places—even the possibility of dying due to disease: Am I bored? Not enough to do with a husband, four kids and a writing career I love? Is it money?
Nah. This is for free.
