The bad news and the good news

For all the bad people in this wicked world, there is bad news and there is good news. The bad news is that the god of this great universe (the creator of this universe), is a very biased being, a being strongly biased in favor of virtue and goodness and strongly biased against wickedness, badness, and immorality. Very simply, he loves good people and dislikes bad people. And intolerant as he is toward immorality and badness, bad people are not allowed residence in his home (heaven) in the afterlife. It is a very exclusive place. It is a place reserved only for the virtuous and good. He wants only good, virtuous, morally pure, right-thinking people living there with him in his kingdom. Bad people are all shunted off to another place, a place called hell, a place of punishment and torment.

Now for the good news. The good news is that if a bad, wicked person will repent of his sins, forsake them, and follow in the way of goodness, virtue, and moral purity (i.e. follow in the way given to us by Jesus, the way of true Christianity), he will be allowed to live with God in his kingdom (heaven) in the afterlife. It is a standing offer to all of the wicked. If they will repent and turn from their wicked ways and follow in His way, they will be forgiven their sins (no matter how many or how bad), and allowed residence in his kingdom. We are all inclined toward sin, do sin from time to time, but are forgiven if we repent and are serious about following in his way.

God is a god of holiness and purity. He is the epitome of righteousness, goodness and virtue. One cannot blame him for wanting only those of his own outlooks, attitudes and values to live with him in his kingdom. This earth is a proving ground, a place to sort out the wheat from the chaff, the good from the bad.
