Neville,You refer, quite rightly, to God as being your father. However you deny the crucifixion and the atoning death of Jesus.
Consider this:You are the father of 4 children and no doubt love them dearly. How far would you go to protect them, as you bring them up, from their own folly? Are there any circumstance that you can envisage that you would gladly die for them?

Our Father will have mercy, and not sacrifice. No one has "paid" for what I have done wrong. I will have to answer for it. And you will have to answer for your errors. Let's lay the blame at our own doors. Our Father is goodness and truth, and will not justify evil-doers (by sacrifice or otherwise). Eternal life is not free. The saints embraced suffering.Philip.Neville.
