    Maybe I should rephrase that. Hitler was unrepentent. He will be in a place worse than Camden, NJ. But so are the people who crucified Jesus. Anybody who asks forgiveness for their sins will be forgiven, no matter how heinous it is. What I poorly attempted to convey is that the potential for forgiveness is ever there - but it requires a person to realize and ask forgiveness.


    Luis, you are getting hung up on the "trees". You are missing the "forest". The analogy provided, several pages ago, illustrates illustrates that God can "wear 3 hats" at the same time.

    are you not allowed to say hell? I know some people don't want to say God either.

    Shouldn't we forgive him too? Isn't learning to become like Jesus what we should all be aspiring to?

    I've never really heard of needing to forgive a dead person... much forgiving someone you've never met and hasn't affected(or is it effect... I always forget) your life. But then again if he did a(e)ffect your life then yea it would be a good idea to forgive him... as hard as it would be.

    I have more questions than answers on the subject (which is probably the way it should be).

    If you want to look into the scientific study of reincarnation you should google Ian Stevenson.

    Actually only people in one group actually know him. Every other monotheist group I know of considers God as some remote being, who's good will you have to earn.
    Yes, isn't that why Christians invented Jesus? To humanise your remote and angry god?
