Jesus taught to love your neighbor, to love your enemy, and that God is both loving and forgiving.
Yet on this forum and in society in general, there seems to be a disturbingly large amount of Hard-Hearted Christians. Not large enough to make more than a vocal minority, but still large enough to be worth discussing.
I’ve seen people claim that coercion or even torture never reduces the severity of a sin (despite having never themselves faced coercion or torture), I’ve seen people claim that letting ones children die would be preferable to saving their lives through sinful means, I’ve seen people claim that whether or not someone goes to Heaven or Hell has nothing to do with that person’s morality, I’ve seen people claim that 90% of humans go to hell when they die, and I’ve seen many other Christians here say some decidedly unchristian things.
At one point, I even began to fear that God might not be benevolent. Fortunately some more level-headed people on this forum explained that what The Church teaches and what “hyper-orthodox loons” claim the church teaches are not the same thing.
However, this still raises a question. Why do you think some Christians in society are so hard of heart?
