i am a christian. however, i do not understand many of the beliefs some of "us" have. for instance, if jesus was such a gifted, amazing man who loved everyone, and God is the all-powerful lover and creator of heaven and earth, why would it be closed to all those who are not Christians? That hardly seems godly to me. Would someone of such great passion and understanding allow all people to be in the club?
I do not want to get into a debate over theory, but would like either some explanations for this belief from Christians themselves, or those who think they have helpful information. thank you
