  • I would say that I should be let in because, in keeping with His Word, I had asked Jesus Christ into my heart to be my personal Lord and Savior, thereby accepting His free gift of eternal salvation. And l put my trust in Him to help me live my life for Him, to the best of my ability.

  • I would say, "You made your decision already...what I have to say will not change your mind so if you are going to let me in....let me in, if not then so be it."

  • midnightmoma: yes, but He also knew why Adam and Eve were suddenly aware of their nakedness and where Cain's brother, Able, was. Sometimes He asks us questions to which He already knows the answer.

  • I don't deserve to be there...but I'm trusting in your mercy. Isn't that all any of us could say really?

  • As for me, I don't believe in Predestination or Fate, I don't believe God chooses to know everything we will do, if he did why would he say that everyone who wants to come to him can because our life would not be able to be altered if it was set by his predestination or pre-knowing,, I don't think holding out hope to someone you know is not going to make it is very loving, no matter how hard they try they can't.....
    If God knew each persons suffering and that they had no hope why would he make them live it just to end up failing....????
    personally I don't believe God is that cruel.....

  • because you are a just and merciful God and I have tried to obey your commandments even though I failed a few times because I am not perfect but I know you died for my sins and now its your choice.
