Stray Thoughts #5: Random Observations from an Intellectual Outlaw

“Serial Killer?

  1. There are 1.2 billion people in India, give or take a few dozen
  2. Most of those people are Hindus & therefore polytheists
  3. The majority of Hindus are decent law-abiding citizens – husbands who love their wives, mothers who love their children
  4. But no matter how good they are, God has doomed them to be tortured in hell for eternity
  1. God created the cultural isolation of the Hindus, engineered their loyalty to India’s official religion, endowed them with the pious motivation to teach their (unfortunately, non-Christian) values to their kids – and then he designed the penalty for this ‘wrongful’ behavior?
  2. And yet, the run-of-the-mill serial killer who rapes & tortures children need only come to Jesus on death row, enjoy a final meal of fried chicken – and then he spends eternity in heaven?
What does this vision of life have to do with moral accountability?
