I was talking with an evangelical the other day. He was telling me about how loving and merciful God is.
"Really? I replied. "I have always gotten the impression that God, in the evangelical interpretation, was full of wrath and had anger issues."
My friend became visibly irritated. "That is not true!" he said as his fist slammed the table. "God, loves us! He sent his son for us!"
I let the moment hold, then I said, "Can we spend a few minutes talking about what happens to the souls that don't fall under that umbrella?"
