    God spoke to me, and he told me you're lies.

    J DEVIL-INSPIRED TEACHINGS

    It was the Devil who told Eve: "You positively will not die." (Genesis 3:4; Revelation 12:9) But she did die; no part of her lived on. That the soul lives on after death is a lie started by the Devil. And it is also a lie, which the Devil has had spread, that the souls of the wicked are tormented in a hell or a purgatory. Since the Bible clearly shows that the dead are unconscious, these teachings could not be true. Actually, neither the word "purgatory" nor the idea of a purgatory is found in the Bible.

  7. Beverly Clark says:

    Very well said! Amen.

  8. Jane Smith says:

    Jesus is the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE, noone comes to the FATHER, but by HIM!

  9. Benedicta Dilip Kumar says:

    I agree that it sounds unfair but when someone tells them shows them and even when they SEE HIS MIRACLES IN THEIR LIVES THEY DON'T WANT TO TURN AND COME TO HIM. That's SAD so why should v think it's UNFAIR JESUS CHRIST IS JUST

  11. 3kings Chico says:

    What of Enoch and Adam.

  12. ESHRAQ SALAHUDDIN says:

    The bottom line is he didn’t answer the question, this is what happen when a book is written by man and call it is from God. Most of the New Testament is man made, there is some verse that is Jesus’s saying, why we read gospel of others why not gospel of Jesus.

  13. Chris Tan says:

    At 4:23, “God really doesn’t send anybody to hell. This is a very important truth: we make our choice.” Seriously? Isn’t God the judge of all and Jesus declared, “Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” (Matthew 10:28)

    And Ravi proceeded to say, “He (God) will not violate our will.”

    But didn’t Jesus say, “All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out. No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up on the last day.”

    Hmmmm….. what gospel are you preaching Ravi?

  14. adam ascolesi says:

    no it’s not unfair u have the free will to believe or not that’s on u period point blank !

  15. eric brufatto says:

    The answer is "There is no partiality with God…" (Ro.2 vs.11-16).

  16. Rick Reed says:

    Mentally deranged comes to mind.

  17. larry reynolds says:

    That’s what the millennium reign is for, you get one more chance to escape an eternity out of the presence of the Lord, EXCEPT, that one third who were cast out, they don’t get another chance, because of the choice they made, before being born into the physical. God is not an unjust God.

  18. The Yeti Paul says:

    What evidence is there that Moses was even a real person?

  19. Edward Longfellow says:

    To say that people who do not believe in Jesus are condemned must surly be a symbolic saying not a literal one. Being an outsider could be equivalent to being 'dead' to those who are part of a fanatical church.

  20. Ningreingam Kamei says:

    Why don't people who truly seek after the truth( God) find Jesus?

  21. Phat Urtha says:

    A wonderful exercise in circumlocution and dodgy doctrine. There's no free exercise of will when a person's held captive by satan. A mighty man needs to break into his house, bind him and drag the captives away. [Spoiler alert] the last 3 chapters of Revelation tells us what'll happen: hell will give up its dead (eg the rich man of Lazarus parable fame), they'll be purified in the holy fire, invited to repent and enter the holy city to partake of the water to quench their thirst for life in Christ. Job done, Christus victor, halleluyah and praise the Lord!

  22. Ai Jax says:

    What’s rather fallacious is the idea of a God that gave humans freewill except when it comes to choosing which religion to believe in, or not believe in one at all.

  23. Carolyn L. Anderson says:

    THIS ISN'T OFFENSIVE CONTENT AT ALL

  24. Trimfix Supplies says:

    We must remember that Jesus alone is the ultimate judge and those who do not know Him here must stand before Him and be judged. Only the judge has the discretion to pass judgement. The reason Jesus came was to give us the choice in this life to appropriate that sacrifice here in order to know our destiny without fear of judgement as Jesus took our judgement and sin to Calvary. What a great Lord. What amazing love

  25. chowdhury meher ali says:

    Matthew 12:39 He answered, “A wicked and adulterous generation asks for a sign! But none will be given it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. 40 For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. Dr. Ravi Zacharias please clarify this verses. Still not any Christians gave satisfactory answers.This verse giving witness that Koran is correct about Jesus died.

  26. Xaforn says:

    Even if someone were to only view the Bible as a historical document, Genesis would show that although God was with man from the beginning seeking a relationship, He wasn’t always welcome. Genesis 4:26 states men began to call on the name of the Lord after Enos was born. We know God was there, and being God He is all knowing. Just because man chose to do wrong doesn’t put the blame on God, we do have free choice but we also have to remember we cannot comprehend God, we have trouble comprehending our own physical world. We can’t answer all questions about Him, especially when the reason it is usually asked is to point fingers when they don’t get the answer they want.

  27. love always says:

    There would be no point of Jesus dying for our sins if people are just going to keep their own personal beliefs. It would be earth all over again and that would be disheartening 🙁 Heaven is beautiful because no sin is there. God doesn’t let it slide. Evil has no place with good. religions are acts to be saved and don’t do really anything for the individual

  28. Richard Loon says:

    What happens one minute after you die?
    then you go home.
    you are only love.
    There is only love.
    That is heaven you have experienced many lives.
    You always come back because the universe wants you to experience everything.
    And The universe experiences everything at once.
    Because the universe is everything in life. We experience it in a life.
    The universe created us in his own image.
    We are the same we are the universe.
    We are the creation of our own life.
    There is no hell just love.
    The Bible is no longer of this time.
    Why do you hold onto a Bible?
    Because you want to believe in something.
    You don't have to believe in anything.
    You always go home again.
    And there is only love. I can't wait to go home again. But I enjoy every moment that the universe gives me in this life.
    God is just a Stepping stone.
    Richard

  29. Brian G C says:

    After Jesus was crucified, it is written that he went to Hades and preached the gospel. There are several passages that refer to people being kept in Abraham's bosom after death. So, while the Bible is not explicit in the answer, there is a path of redemption for them. Ultimately though, the most important question is not "What about the other people?", but rather, "What is YOUR relationship with Jesus and God the Father?" It is amazing how many people worry about someone else's eternal destiny but they are unwilling to contemplate or commit to their own. Satan's greatest trick was to get people to "think about it for a while before deciding".

  30. Walter Morley says:

    Outside of the story book called the Bible what actual physical proof is there that God?Jesus Christ existes?

  31. Jameel Ali says:
