My aunt has gone to church every week for 50 years and she told me that none of us are good enough for him because we are all sinners In his eyes, Jesus died on the cross for us for us to have the opportunity to go into heaven. We are not worthy of him unless we are able to accept him into our heart and once we do if we turn his back on him there is no coming back. We had this conversation over Christmas specifically because after 911 my aunt and uncle became jewish

I'm not getting into a religious debate on here. I won't try to act superior either. But I went to religious schools from kindergarten through high school, and I've gone to mass every week and holy day aside from when I was bedridden in the hospital. My mother goes to daily mass and adoration for an hour. I've had much time to contemplate on this.
Yes, I agree. We're all sinners. We're all sinning like crazy in this world and I'm sure God's not happy with us as a whole. This world is more worried about their reputation or 15 minutes of fame than they are about acting morally just to those around them, as well as to themselves. Even now I'm willing to bet we have some religious people who don't want to join this conversation for reason A or reason B.
That being said, He doesn't want to smite us, otherwise He would have a long time ago. It's being able to wake up each morning and appreciate that it's not your time yet, and that he's given you another day to do good in this world in order to be accepted into His kingdom when it's your time.
I had written a LOT more, but decided to delete it. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, I just cannot sit idly by when my God is being talked about wrongfully. It is His will that I cannot keep quiet. I will not try to convert anyone, for that is forcing my will on others, rather I'd wish to educate people on the type of God that we have in this world.
God is a loving God, and this is proven with the felon convicted of murder who was on a cross aside Jesus. He asked for forgiveness and he got it because he was truly repentant.
All in all, those children, and the teachers murdered are all having fun in a playground in heaven, playing games with angels and relatives who have gone before them, while we sit here and try to point fingers and MOCK those family members who have to live the rest of their lives with this burden of having lost a child.
It's seeing the good in life that makes God happy. It's spreading that good to others around you, not expecting to receive payment for it. It's doing little acts of kindness to everyone around you, rather than trying to be angry at those who may have made mistakes.
May he who is without sin cast the first stone.
Alright I'm done. Sorry if I've offended anyone, I did not mean to on purpose.
