* Ephesians 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God. * John 14:6 Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me". Non-Christian people who love, serve, donate, care for various communities and sacrifice their life for the benefit of others in a good cause has no right of entering the kingdom of God. Good Men, Women, and children living a humble life in isolated parts of the world, in result not knowing Christ's existence will suffer eternal torment wondering what have they done wrong. More than half of the people in the world regardless of their actions are cursed unless they know, worship and submit to God's will through his son Jesus Christ. Why is salvation based through faith alone? If God's absolute love is unconditional, why won't he extend his salvation to those people who respect others and did good in this world but was cursed because they were born in a different way of life? I thank Jesus for providing an expensive and precious ticket to heaven which we all got for free but a huge price for others as they have to sacrifice their loving family, friends and culture which is something they would have lived for. Someone who loved you unconditionally with all their heart, fed you when you're hungry, took care of you when you're sick and raise you to become a good respecting person, supported you in your very hard times and was very proud of you no matter what. Sadly, they can't give up their way of living as it is already part of their lives up to their old age and you have to leave them as they can't join you yet still supportive on your decision on how you want to live your life spiritually. Soon after they passed away and you reflecting the love they given to you but at the back of your mind "Father God have mercy on their souls" I apologize for speaking out such an unpopular opinion. I have no intentions of insulting the Christian people but I'm here seeking answers, opinions, and insights on how you see and interpret the word of God based of the topic given. I also apologized for my lack of knowledge on the matter if I got it wrong and I'm open minded and I will accept my mistakes. I do request if you want reply, please quote through scriptures/ bible verses along the way so I could note them down for reference.
Unconditional love is, well, love that has no limits. Love for yourself, love for your world, for everyone around you. Love should have no strings attached. Love that has strings attached to it is not truly love. I am the most loving, caring person that I know on this planet. God teaches us to love everyone. So, why can't we? I think the reason we can't is because love is banned in some countries and even in the United States. What I mean by "banned" is this: If you are friends with anyone, you get criticized for that friendship. If a straight person is friends with someone who is bi, do you think that that person does not get criticized for that particular friendship? Gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transsexuals... At least one person in each of those groups has committed suicide, or struggle with suicidal thoughts. Why? They are bullied. Just for being different, just for being who they are. Just for LOVING. That should not ever happen. People really should start practicing Unconditional Love. The Bible says to be like Jesus. With that being said, did Jesus not love everyone? Even His enemies, who ridiculed him, and stoned Him? Jesus Christ is the very DEFINITION of Unconditional Love, and if we all practice that, WE can be the dictionary. Give food to those who have none! Give shelter to those who have none! Give LOVE to those who have none and NEED IT!!! LOVE is the most powerful thing in the world right now! EVERYONE needs to be loved! Not just some people. People who look like they have enough love, probably don't. That homeless guy on the streets? He could probably really use a hug right now. Even better, he could use an "I love you." or even an "I'm praying for you." All anyone ever really needs is love. Love and the reminder that someone is thinking of them. Have any of you ever heard of that "Free Hugs Campaign"? That is what prompted me to change. To start adopting this attitude of Unconditional Love. We all need to have a Free Hugs sign. By which I mean, Unconditional Love. Heck my face has the words "Free Hugs" and "I love you." written ALL over it. I am writing this Essay not to condemn, not to preach or do anything that would upset anyone. I am writing this Essay simply to begin and start a Movement. The Movement. The Movement of Unconditional Love. That movement begins now.
