Question

How can the bible state that we should forgive others no matter what, And yet it also say that sinners will go to hell.
Is this preaching one thing and practising another or is am I wrong?.

I think the idea (in traditional Chistian thinking) is rather that we should forgive (after all we are sinners and can unde stnd why peopel sin). Also as sinners we cannot judge: That is the station of God as the just and merciful master.

Hell isn't somewhere you go when you die.Commit a sin and you will neither be judged by God or punished.You will simply face the karmic consequences of your actions.This is the meaning of the biblical phrase 'a man shall reap what he sows'.

Look at the world around you and you will see the workings of God in every living thing.For every action there is a consequence and human beings as free thinking creatures are responsible for the consequence of every action.In the bible it states'do unto others as you would have them do unto you'.And karma decrees that what you do unto others you will experience either in this life or a future reincarnation.

That is new for me...
I think hell is definity exist and sinner will get there punishments. But we know what the sins are but we can not know who is the sinner and not as that what Allah has to decide...
What you say mr Andy that there is no life after death ????
Is that what christian think ??? No hell and no heavan..
as if no one get judge by Allah then ofcourse hell/heaven has not eixistance ???

Hypocrisy?

Dear Friend,
We forgive to release ourself from bitterness and resentment and to heal---forgiving benefits the forgiver and the forgivee--making way for chances to begin again. And as Christians to forgive is a commnandment, not a suggestion from God. It is not always easy, but as Christians we must commit to that end. Afterall, we were forgiven by Christ. Unrepentant sinners are hell bound according to the bible--not a pretty picture in this "if it feels good do it society" of hot tub people who want to feel good without being good. But the good news is Jesus Christ, who is willing to forgive and place us on a rock. He watches over and blesses the "sheep in his fold". His "burden is light and his yoke is easy". His children are the apple of his eye and he want's none to perish and yet he has given us free will--he's not a dictator, the holy spirit is a gentleman who comes where he is invited.

God bless.
