I can't quote the post because that thread has been locked, but I wanted to answer this.

Quote:
I'm somewhat puzzled by the Christian claim that all lives are of equal value. This obviously does not imply equal treatment since for those who don't accept Christ as their personal savior, they will be tormented for eternity in hell with unbearable suffering while the other portion that submits to God's will, gets to live a life of bliss. I suppose this hapless young man would have been better off living some more years, because at least life on Earth has some moments of pleasure. He might even have been redeemed in his later years, avoiding hell at the last moment. Now it's too late.
I'm sure you've heard of the Imago Dei in your studies.

This boy was an image bearer of God. Regardless of his actions his life was sacred, and had value.

And as heterodox as it seems sometimes I take a position similar to C.S Lewis in the Great Divorce. I couldn't make a judgement on this individual even if I knew him quite well. I can suggest or make a guess on his condition based on his actions/words in life, but even then I see through a glass darkly.

I'm sorry, but I don't remember ever speaking to you in this thread. And upon looking at the OP again I've confirmed that fact.

You can feel free to leave now.

Perhaps you should tie your hands so you don't respond to a locked thread with a new thread. It was locked for a reason. Don't feel compelled to answer everything on the internet.

Wonder why that thread got locked?

I understand that position but all those eternally suffering souls will be regretting that they have the Imago Dei.

I think you are confusing cause and effect.

Not clear if that was a yes or a no.

You forgot the dead horse emoticon.

I say we start a pool. Guess when Marty becomes pissed and leaves the sand box with all his toys. Probably be easier to do it by number of posts. IE: I predict Marty will leave by post #??

It certainly wasn't because of any conversation between us. Which is why I didn't mind starting this one.

Understood.

And I'm leaning in the annihilationist camp. If that helps you understand me better.

Just wondering, have you read or are you familiar with the Great Divorce?

From that paradigm is seems rather odd to be talking about humanity/inhumanity when the will of man is the cause of those remaining in the "town."
