    Adstar,

    So is it just faith in god that allows the opportunity or being good. In other words if I am good but don't believe in god I won't have the opportunity.

    Is that correct ?

    No.
    You said in the quote:

    "if I am good but don't believe in god I won't have the opportunity."

    If you where already Good then you would not need the opportunity to be redeemed and made Good.

    As i said in the former post. Having faith in the Word of God, that is Jesus, puts us in a position where God will make us good in the future. We live now in joyful hope of the coming of our Redeemer Jesus and the Day when we are changed and renewed to our good state of being.

    Galatians 3
    7 Therefore know that only those who are of faith are sons of Abraham. 8 And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel to Abraham beforehand, saying, β€œIn you all the nations shall be blessed.” 9 So then those who are of faith are blessed with believing Abraham.

    Right, to clarify.

    If you don't believe in god and jesus as our savior then you will not be given the opportunity, it's not about being good because:

    Is that correct ?

    I cannot see anything there that is incorrect.

    Ok by that standard, which you have clearly laid out, it doesn't matter what I do here on earth, it doesn't matter what kind of person I am here on earth, no matter how good or bad.

    All that matters for me to have the opportunity is to believe that Jesus is our savior.

    That's it.

    Correct ?

    You don't need to answer that by the way, because you already did.

    Brilliant.

    Adstar.

    Do you believe in dinosaurs ?

    Oh I get it, because atheists are already good they don't need god. Only evil people like you need god in irder to be redeemed before your expiration date.

    It must really suck being incapable of being good without divine intervention. You have my sympathy. No wonder you're crazy as a loon.
