Aaron Rogers quit Christianity because He could not believe the God of Love would torment anyone for eternity simply because they did not “believe.” What a shame! And what an understanding heart Aaron Rogers has. Would a human father torment his disobedient child for a second let alone all eternity? Is that what love is? Is that what love does?
Aaron Rogers, I can tell you that you were right. You were correct in your assessment of traditional Christianity. But what you did not know or understand was that the major doctrines of the organized church were corrupted very early-on. What is being taught today is a mixture of paganism, Hebrew and Greek mythology, and Platonism.
I just want to share a couple of verses with you that totally contradict the false notion that God is going to torment people who do not believe, or who are “too evil” to save.
Consider the following verses if you will.
Romans 5:18 (Weymouth Translation) — It follows then that just as the result of a single transgression is a condemnation which extends to the whole race, so also the result of a single decree of righteousness is a life-giving acquittal which extends to the whole race.
Here we see that Adam’s one transgression condemned all who come from his loins (the whole human race). But the one righteous act of Christ acquits the whole human race. Now that doesn’t line up with eternal torment for the evil and unsaved does it?
How about this one:
I Timothy 4:9-11 — This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation.
For therefore we both labor and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Savior of all men, specially of those that believe.
These things command and teach.
Here we see God will indeed save all mankind, and that there are special blessings for those who believe now, during this life.
Please look at one more verse:
Colossians 1:20 — and by Him [Christ] to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.
Here we see God is going to reconcile — fully restore His relationship with — all in heaven and all on earth through Christ’s cross! God loses NOTHING! That is how amazing our God is. He let mankind go its own way to learn what life would be like WITHOUT God, and He provided the way back to Him through Christ. Eventually He will cause all His created beings in heaven and on earth to confess Jesus is Lord and bow in worship to Him.
I can’t explain everything about this in a short blog post, but I hope you will download the following 3 books that explain God’s purpose and plan in greater detail:
What the Word of God Says About Life, Death and Life Beyond Death
What the Word of God Says About Salvation: The Forgiveness of Sins, Conciliation, Justification, and Reconciliation
God’s Purpose in Creation: The Consummation of All Things

Aaron Rogers, if you are short on time and have doubts, just read the third book, God’s Purpose in Creation. See if the true plan of God makes more sense to you! Then let me have your honest feedback!
God bless you in Jesus’ name, Aaron Rogers!
