Andrew Wommack said that nobody goes to hell because of his sins because God has dealt with all our sins. A person goes to hell for rejecting Jesus. Is this biblically correct? I mean this sounds like OSAS. But the bible mentions so many different sins and says that somebody who does these sins cannot get to heaven, which sense would it even make to mention them if sins were totally irrelevant and it's only about believing or not? I mean if you only go to hell for not accepting Jesus then this means once you have accepted him you can live like the devil and still get saved. This is confusing. On the one hand I think that Wommack is trying to do something good and to help people to get rid of this image of God which is scary, that God punishes people and that God sends diseases and tsunamis (which a lot of christians claim he does) but on the other hand I don't know if he might not also be wrong. For example Wommack said that the reason why God ordered the Israelites to kill other people in the old testament is that in the old testament nobody could be born again and this means that a person couldn't change and this means that these people had to be killed because they were so sinful and evil. But if you could not repent or turn around in old testament times then the whole ministry of John the baptists wouldn't have made any sense because sinful people wouldn't even have been able to repent. I don't know but somehow it simply doesn't fit together. Wommack says that God deals with us differently in the new covenant. As an example he used the story where Jesus' disciple ask him wether they shall send down fire from heaven upon those which rejected Jesus and Jesus rebuked them for this. But in the old testament Elijah did just this. Wommack said that if you want to do what Elijah did in the OT Jesus would rebuke you. This proves for him that God deals with us differently today. But what about Ananias and his wife for example? In this case God also showed a strong reaction and didn't just sit there and watch it. But Wommack is also right by saying that the way you percieve a person affects your relationship with this person. I have noticed this so many times. When I read something or hear something about God which scares me then immediately I feel distant to God and God suddenly becomes strange to me and I feel like I don't even know how he really is. This is indeed alienating. For example when you hear christians say that God punished New Orleans because the people there were into witchcraft and so on then this isn't a very pleasing thought because it makes God look so angry and revengeful and this is simply scary. But on the other hand I ask myself what if God simply also is angry and revengeful? Then it also doesn't help to simply deny those characteristics of God.
