I have gained a bit of perspective on this...
After discussing with a few people and reading a comment from the last post. I think My gut tells me ultimately that it is not my descision or my worry. I can only be the faith led person I can be and share my faith with those around. It is ultimately a descision that the individual must make on their own. And as to the result, God, as I believe, Is loving and just and will make His descision based on His Will that is way beyond anything I could possibly comprehend.

Does it matter?
I am posing a question to the few patrons of this website....
If in the end, at the gates, Peter asks, "Why should you enter?" What will your response be?
"Because Jesus died for me."
"Oops, This is for real?"
"Ohhh, So I am Dead?"
"But I had too much left to do."
"You killed my parents when I was young!"
I have to assume that my response would be something along the lines of "I shouldn't."
I guess I am at a point where I feel that there is no "reason" I should get to be with my Father in Heaven. I turn my back on Him every day. If there is love in His heart to sacrifice His son, as a father myself, I don't think I could do it. I don't think I could do it knowing that the people I am doing it for will not look to me in love as a whole.
The response that I am concerned most about is "I don't know."
If a person is on their deathbed and proclaims that he or she just doesn't know and they are sincere about it, what will be the verdict. I know we are not God and not the final Judge, but what do you all think will be the answer? Will they be allowed to enter? PLEASE respond as it is imperative to my soul that I gain some perspective on this....

Is this love really attainable?
36"Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?"
37Jesus replied: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.'
38This is the first and greatest commandment.
39And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'
40All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments."
As a person who does truly strive and fall short of loving everyone, I cannot help but shudder at the amount of hate in this country. We in America hve always had racism and depending on who you talk to it is better or worse. This is not the hatred i am talking about. I am talking about the hatred that burns against those who do not hold the same values or morals as our own. A hatred that begins in the very core of our being. We are all guilty of it.
"I hate those freaking right winger, gun toting, red neck, homophobic, christians...they are so holier than thou...hypocrites..."
"I hate those freaking left wing, liberal, pro abortion, homoloving, family destroying....they are all rich, but talk about the poor...hypocrites..."
I am not one to say I know the mind of God, but surely neither side is completely correct!? I am of the opinion that when people release material advocating hate, they are absolutely in the wrong! Whether is is propaganda through the media or just a one liner in a blog it does not matter! Hate is hate. Not all people will agree with me, but that is ok. Just don't hate me for wanting to take a stand on an issue or a person. I try to live by a standard that I can in no way truly live up to, but that in no way gives another person the right to hate me for that belief.
Hate is the absolute center of destruction.
Love is the absolute center of life.

What really matters?
As I sit in my cubicle one day after we were able to bring home our son, I can't help but think about all of the people I talk with on a day to day basis. People who get flat out IRATE if their internet service goes down for a few hours because the tap going to their business is under a foot of water; This does not seem like something in a year will be worth the days of life you loose because your increased heart rate caused a heart attack. As I know many people have more meaningful (good and bad) things occurr in their life, I can't help raise this question to myself... "What am I doing?" Is my life reduced to taking calls and getting yelled at becuse Mr. Boss of Business Inc can't check his email? How sad is this?
As I look at my 5 year old daughter, my new son, and my wonderful wife, I realize that every moment the LORD blesses me with them is what living is.
I am posting a few more pics tonight of zane now that he is home....Again, thank you all for your prayers and support...
