One of the pet (positive-and-not-negative) Bible verses misinterpreted and mis-applied (out of context) by everyone-will-go-to-Heaven universal-inclusionists is:
John 3:16 = "God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life,
John 3:17 = because God sent the Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.
[ NOTE: For 3:16, the DARBY translation has: "may not perish" instead of the: "should not perish" which most translations have, and either way it seems to be sort of goofy (to me) in that such should rather state: "will not perish".
For 3:17, the ASV instead of: "might be saved" states: "should be saved" and the DARBY instead states: may be saved ].
Similar inclusionist verses are:
First Timothy 2:3 = This is good, and it is acceptable in the sight of God our Savior,
First Timothy 2:4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
First Timothy 4:10 = To this end we labor and strive, because we have our hope set on the living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of those who believe.
Second Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slow about His promise as some [misconsider] "slowness," but is patient toward you, not wishing/wanting/willing ["wanting" to me is best] that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.
[ NOTE: Most versions state the phrase: "any should perish" instead of simply: "any perish" along with "should reach repentance" instead of merely: "repent"]
So, for "all men" (i.e. actually: HUMANS of both genders, according to the root Greek-Text word: anthropos found all throughout the New Testament of the Judeo-Christian Holy Bible) to ACTUALLY be saved and end up in Heaven instead of Hell, "repentance" is involved.
That should be obvious, in that the fixed and non-alterable absolute morality in Heaven and among all therein would not be appreciated nor voluntarily participated by those whose bottom-line intention is rebellion, defiance, and disobedience against non-compromising and total Biblical righteousness, and so they would not even be allowed entrance into nor residence within Eternal Glory with the Lord and his Religious-Right Perfectly-Holy Saints.
And we are not talking about carnal Christians, involuntarily duressed by non-asked-for erotic and other temptations causing them to lamentably and occasionally or even frequently stumble into immodest or quasi-immoral sinning . . . but instead those who intrinsically - of themselves and by themselves - willfully and persistently, deliberately ignore, disregard, are irritated by, balk against, revile, inwardly despise, and essentially hate God's moral Law, and actually like to rebelliously and repetitiously disobey, underneath it all.
Romans 7:22 I delight in the Law of God, in my inmost self . . .
Satan 7:22 I despise the Law of God, in my inmost self . . .
Nothing about the Gospel in the verses above. Not yet. First things first. If they do not have nor go along with desire to perfectly obey the Law 24/7 and be totally and completely submitted to the absolute authority of God the Creator in all of their lives and lifestyle, there is no sense nor cause for them to hear about, relate to, accept, nor apply to themselves the redemptive Gospel of Jesus Christ involving remission of sins with sin obviously defined (of necessity) by particulars of the Law of God (and not humanly-concocted, legalistic, off-the-wall substitutes - such as crusading for inclusive diversity for and tolerance involving homoqueers and related transsexuals and transgenders and transvestites, demanding sexist "equality", mis-calling evolution heresy: "science" and porn: "art" and abortion: "choice" or "reproductive freedom" and claiming legality of [homopervert] human "rights" and gay "rights" and chauvinistic women's "rights" and abortion "rights" and so on).
[ NOTE: Perhaps-non-admittedly partnering with the 7:22 Satanic-verse rendition above are "Oh, I - with perpetually-ingrained sinful nature - cannot merit salvation myself by accepting the Gospel, because I am not saved by doing any of my own good works or being righteous myself as to obeying the Law, because the Father-condemned Christ obeyed it for me so the Law does not apply to me anymore being that I now live by and am saved by grace through faith and thus can live like the Devil and still get away with it because the blood of Jesus has and continues to cleanse me from all accidental sinful oopsies and anti-self-esteem guilt and I am content being dressed in His righteousness alone while I am indecently and immodestly mis-dressed in the sight of sexually-harassed-by-my-own-self-centered-conceit victimized and visually-abused men not married to me nor ever intending to marry me" apostates ]
If ALL students (of ALL religions including irreligious atheists and agnostics) in public schools (including immodestly-misdressed-and/or-heretic-doctrines-espousing pseudo-"christians" along with maryolatrous/purgatorial/apocryphal/pope-is-perfect/Mary-was-sinlessly-immaculate catholics plus kill-Christians-kill-Jews-per-Koranic-demand islamic) are ALREADY saved by the "Savior of all men" (i.e. humans of both genders) according to First Timothy 4:10, WHY would God "our" Savior (and the word: "our" can indiscriminately be uttered by ANYBODY) desire those "to be" saved according to First Timothy 2:3?
And WHAT has the "repentance" of Second Peter 3:9 have to do with those "already saved" by "the Savior of all persons especially those who believe" [whatever that latter phrase means]?
"Repentance" from or concerning WHAT (pertaining to public-school students of all religions)?
And there is the semantical problem with the so-called "legal" name of the Freedom FROM Religion Foundation of Madison Wisconsin.
I could understand a name like: Freedom OF Religion Foundation or Freedom WITH Religion Foundation or Freedom FOR Religion Foundation . . . but the word FROM sounds a lot like Freedom AGAINST Religion Foundation which automatically makes it illegal as a registered name, being that it clearly violates the Non-Establishment/Non-Prohibition Clauses of the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, the words thereof specifically referring to "religion" which obviously is thus addressed and allowed constitutionally.
The same mis-terminology applies to Planned PARENTHOOD, operatives of which do NOT plan nor cause God-given conception timing, but do terminate conceptions and pregnancies [not with "birth" "control" but instead: "pregnancy-preventer" pills and whatever] by facilitating abortion homicide [which is neither "reproductive" nor promote a mother's and womb-child's "health"] . . . besides abusing women with pushy mammograms.
So, "Planned Parent-Whatever" is here for EVIL, and not "for good."
First Timothy 2:8 I desire then that in every place the men should pray, lifting holy hands without anger or quarreling;
9 also that women should adorn themselves modestly and properly in decent apparel, not with plaited hair or gold or pearls or costly clothing
10 but by good works, as befits women who profess religion.
11 Have a woman learn in silence with all subjection.
12 I allow NO woman to teach or to have authority over men; she is to keep silent,
13 because Adam was formed first, then Eve;
14 and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor.
15 Yet woman will be saved by bearing children, if she continues in faith and love and holiness, with sensibility.
First Timothy 5:14 I would have younger women [NOT: "widows"] marry, bear children, manage their households, and give the enemy no cause to revile us,
First Timothy 5:15 because some have already strayed after Satan.
Thus, so-called "planned parenthood" MUST be legally re-named: "Planned Parentlessness" - the demonic crusade of such being frequently based upon: "Planned Promiscuity" characteristic of X-to-XXX-immoral who do not take parental responsibility for illicitly screwing each other sexually and then incurring "inconvenient" or "embarrassing" or "financially-non-supportable" pregnancies with CHILD instead of mere "fetus."
What kind of "religious freedom" in public schools do you want?
Do you mind the kill-Christians/kill-Jews/behead-"infidels" Qur'an read to your impressionable Christian children in public school? How about the irrationalizing meaderings of some off-an-a-tangent rambling rabbi pontificating in the Talmud? Want your kids to reverently pray while bowed down prostate on all fours to "benevolent"/"all-merciful" 70-nude-virgins-for-suicide-bombers-promising "allah"? How about the animalistic "the great spirit" of american indians? Or sit in yoga-trance stupor in front of a buddha statue? Maybe pander to dirty disease-bearing flies on India's "sacred" cows? Be brainwashed by some frightening hocus-pocus voodoo witch doctor or trapped within a wiccan-witch bloody-human-sacrifice black mass?
School girls publicly wearing a very-modest hijab or burka instead of sexually-harassing and seducing males-at-large in bikinis is one thing, but the other stuff along with it? Why not direct children to the modest habit-costumes of old-order Catholic nuns, or the Amish?
Most legal entities agree that carrying and both privately and silently reading a Judeo-Christian Holy Bible, or Torah, or parts of a Qur'an, plus privately and quietly praying or praying amongst a like-minded group of consensual Christians, or Jews, or even seemingly-peaceable Muslims -- in public schools at appropriate times -- is not unlawful nor illegal.
Even REASONABLE (and non-harassive) proselytizing among such students with other students (even students with teachers and especially teachers with students) as to discreetly or cautiously advertising their religion to others of a different or no religion in particular . . . might be OK (depending upon veracity of religious-text subject matter), within the parameters of school scheduling, policies, and regulation and in accord with civil-law standards enforced by police or sheriff and courts.
But any objections reasonably expressed, even one time or once, by the solicited to the religious solicitor should (if possible) be honored and accommodated to so the solicitor does not become guilty of illegal invasion of privacy, causing mental anguish, disturbing the peace, stalking, harassing, or bullying.
At the same time, the majority rules, and if the majority has no problem with a Christian Bible being read to them, any minority-number objectors should be free to excuse themselves from hearing what they disdain being (or to be) read to them -- but no one should be allowed to violate legislated laws of the school or American government in general around them, even though such laws might have been or yet are based upon or in accord with the Christian Bible and/or Torah (part of the Christian Bible, incidentally).
Proverbs 12:15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, but a wise man listens to advice.
Romans 12:17 Repay no one evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.
Colossians 4:6 Have your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer everyone.
Philippians 2:3 Do nothing from selfishness or conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.
Philemon 1:14 . . . but I preferred to do nothing without your consent so that your goodness might not be by compulsion but of your own free will.
Titus 3:2 . . . to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all persons.
Indiscriminate preaching by an authority-figure Christian or Jewish or Muslim teacher proseltizing to ALL students of every religion is, however, not constitutionally protected according to the Non-Establishment/Non-Prohibition Clauses of the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution . . . not that the religious texts of the Christian's Bible, the Jewish Torah, and (at least parts of) the Islamic Koran cannot be read verbatim and even elaborated upon in commentary plus both non-invasively and situationally applied to moral or ethical scenarios and issues to others willing to listen to such without asking to be excused with impunity -- especially when done so in a respectful manner (as much as possible, regarding civil-legal-statutes-accommodating religious-text contents).
No teacher should proselytize to ALL at-large students, forcing on them their particular (and perhaps peculiar) cultic or even sectarian preference of religion and particularly religious practices, and no teacher is required to read the religious texts of all religions (especially to those students who do not want to hear what they consider objectional or noxious) in terms of demanding that students verbally recite or be tested on what then amounts to forced participation of deviant doctrinal assertions or worship-by-default faulty prayers (particularly involving grades of pass-or-fail given by the teacher, whether subtly implied or directly threatened).
All that, however, does not mean that Christian teachers (and Christian students) in particular, should be reluctant or wimpish or cowardly, in properly (and with thoughtful consideration) advertising Christian precepts and admonitions from the Bible, even though such is obviously "religious" while anything but "anti-scientific" and not to be misconstrued as "secular" history or whatever:
Matthew 28:19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
Matthew 28:20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you . . ."
Acts 20:20 . . . I did not shrink from declaring to you anything that was profitable, and teaching you in public and from house to house,
Acts 20:21 testifying both to Jews and to Greeks of repentance to God and of faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.
First Timothy 4:13 Until I come, attend to the public reading of Scripture, to preaching, to teaching.
Second Timothy 1:8 Do not be ashamed then of testifying to our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but share in suffering for the gospel in the power of God . . .
Titus 2:15 Declare these things; exhort and reprove with all authority. Let no one disregard you.
What percentage or numbers are we contemplating concerning the realization that some public-school students (and especially public-school teachers) like (or admirably: "love") God and God's holy ways, while other public-school students do NOT like (or literally: "hate") God and His holy ways?
Matthew 7:13 "Enter by the narrow [updo/back-of-head-ponytail-hairstyles/arms-covered/legs-in-slacks-not-shorts/socks-with-shoes] gate, because the [mopheaded/sleevesless/bared-legs-in-shorts/socksless-feet-in-sandals] gate is wide and the way is easy, that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many.
Matthew 7:14 The gate is narrow and the way is hard, that leads to life, and those who find it are few.
Matthew 7:22 On that day many will say to me: "Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?"
Matthew 7:23 And then will I declare to them: "I never knew you; leave me, you anti-Trump/anti-Pence [mopheaded/sleevesless/bared-legs-in-shorts/socksless-feet-in-sandals] Obamanation evildoers".
Matthew 22:14 Many [mopheaded/bared-legs-in-shorts/socksless-feet-in-sandals] are called, but few are chosen."
Luke 13:24 "Strive to enter by the [updo/back-of-head-ponytail-hairstyles/arms-covered/legs-in-slacks-not-shorts/socks-with-shoes] narrow door; because many [demoncrats and RINOS], I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able".
Romans 9:27 Isaiah proclaims concerning [not "regarding"] Israel: "Though the number of the [pro-"palestinian"/anti-Zionist] children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, only a [non-Texe-Marrs-type] [pro-Israeli-settlements] [updo/back-of-head-ponytail-hairstyles/arms-covered/legs-in-slacks-not-shorts/socks-with-shoes] remnant of them will be saved".
Second Corinthians 12:21 I fear that when I come again my God may humble me before you, and I may have to mourn over many of those who sinned before and have not repented of the [mopheaded/sleevesless/bared-legs-in-shorts/socksless-feet-in-sandals] impurity, immorality, and licentiousness which they have practiced.
Philippians 3:18 Many [and WHAT part of many do you not understand: the "m" the "a" the "n" or the "y"?], of whom I have often told you and now tell you even with tears, live as [mopheaded/sleevesless/bared-legs-in-shorts/socksless-feet-in-sandals] enemies AGAINST (not "of") the cross of Christ.
Titus 1:10 There are many [pro-mopheaded/sleevesless/bared-legs-in-shorts/socksless-feet-in-sandals] insubordinate persons, empty talkers and deceivers . . .
Second Peter 2:2 MANY will follow their [mopheaded/sleevesless/bared-legs-in-shorts/socksless-feet-in-sandals] immodest/porno-licentiousness, and because of them the way of truth will be reviled.
First John 2:18 Kiddies, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come; therefore we know that it is the last hour.
First John 4:1 Lovelies, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are of God, because many [mopheaded/sleevesless/bared-legs-in-shorts/socksless-feet-in-sandals] false prophetesses have gone out into the world.
WHAT does "belief" and "repentance" involve, because (according to Scripture) there is NO "salvation" without BOTH "belief" and "repentance"?
First, the [mopheaded/sleevesless/bared-legs-in-shorts/socksless-feet-in-sandals] believer-and-repenter MUST agree that what the Biblical Law terms: [immodest] "sin" is indeed sinful. For example, tolerating or favoring mopheaded/sleevesless/bared-legs-in-shorts/socksless-feet-in-sandals "equality-with-men" feminist sexist, transsexuals, homogays, abortionists, evolutionists, publicly-immodest and porn-model pornography, antisemites, etc. is (according to Scripture) "sinful".
Clearly, what "sin" is MUST be defined by Biblical Law (both Old and New Testament specifics) . . . associated with such RSV/NASB hairstyle-reference passages as Numbers 5:18 and Song of Solomon 7:5 plus KJV's First Corinthians 11:1-16, RSV/NASB armwear-reference passages as Second Samuel 13:18, RSV/NASB/KJV breastwear-and-loinwear-and-legwear-reference passages as Proverbs 5:19 and Isaiah 3:17 and 20:4 and Isaiah 47:1-4, plus footwear-reference passages as Jeremiah 2:25.
Second the [mopheaded/sleevesless/bared-legs-in-shorts/socksless-feet-in-sandals] believer-and-repenter MUST admit that she has committed (NOT "performed") whatever Biblically-defined sin they actually committed (even in thought and not merely misbehavioral action).
Third the [mopheaded/sleevesless/bared-legs-in-shorts/socksless-feet-in-sandals] believer-and-repenter MUST believe and declare that there HAS to be some type of bloody atonement to absolve such sin they committed.
Fourth the [mopheaded/sleevesless/bared-legs-in-shorts/socksless-feet-in-sandals] believer-and-repenter MUST believe and verbally or literarily acknowledge that the death of Jesus Christ on a cross was and is the perfect atonement to cancel the penalty of all their sins.
Fifth the [mopheaded/sleevesless/bared-legs-in-shorts/socksless-feet-in-sandals] believer-and-repenter MUST FULLY intend to NEVER commit that same [mopheaded/sleevesless/bared-legs-in-shorts/socksless-feet-in-sandals] sin or sins again -- whether publicly jogging along roadsides, during athletic activities, entering grocery stores and gas stations, going into churches, etc.
It is pertaining to point five above that many fall short of being truly forgiven, and John 3:18-21 applies in their Hell-destined case:
18 He/She who "believes" in Him is not condemned; he/she who does not "believe" is condemned already, because he-or-she has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.
19 And this is the judgment, that the light has come into the world, and humans loved [mopheaded/sleevesless/bared-legs-in-shorts/socksless-feet-in-sandals] darkness rather than light, because their [mopheaded/sleevesless/bared-legs-in-shorts/socksless-feet-in-sandals] works were evil,
20 because everyone who does evil hates the light, and does not come to the light, lest their [mopheaded/sleevesless/bared-legs-in-shorts/socksless-feet-in-sandals] works be exposed.
21 But they who do what is true comes to the light, that it may be clearly seen that their [updo/back-of-head-ponytail-hairstyles/arms-covered/legs-in-slacks-not-shorts/socks-with-shoes] works have been done in God.
Titus 1:16 They profess to know God, but they deny Him by their [mopheaded/sleevesless/bared-legs-in-shorts/socksless-feet-in-sandals] works; they are detestable, disobedient, unfit for any good deed.
Hebrews 10:26 If we sin deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for [mopheaded/sleevesless/bared-legs-in-shorts/socksless-feet-in-sandals] sins (including Christ's atoning sacrifice on a cross then made of no effect and non-applicable to nor for them),
Hebrews 10:27 but a fearful prospect of Judgment, and a Fury of Fire which will consume the [mopheaded/sleevesless/bared-legs-in-shorts/socksless-feet-in-sandals] adversaries.
Second Thessalonians 1:9 They shall suffer the punishment of eternal destruction and exclusion away from the presence of the Lord and away from the glory of His might,
Revelation 20:10 . . . and (those [mopheaded/sleevesless/bared-legs-in-shorts/socksless-feet-in-sandals] whose names are not written in the Book of Life) . . . were thrown into the Lake of Fire and Brimstone where the Beast and the False Prophet were (the non-living/soul-less/robotic "Image of the Beast" not there, however), and they will be relentlessly tormented [completely suspended within the Outer Darkness] continuously to the ages of the ages.
