— From Brio Magazine, it’s Ask Suzie! …
Brio gives me comfort and conviction in my relationship with Christ, and I’m so grateful for that! However there’s one element that’s bothering me. I have many non-Christian friends, and it frustrates me that you say they’re sinners. Does that mean there will be billions of people who will be going to hell? This is such a bothersome thought to me, and I have difficulty believing it.
I’ve invited my friends to church and offered them the New Testament, but they say they want to maintain their own respected religions (Judaism, Islam, etc.). These friends give so much to the community, possess sound morals and are genuinely good people. It saddens me to think they’re going to hell. Is this really true, or am I worrying for nothing?

Suzie’s answer will make you rage with loathing for God. Let’s hope Saddened’s healthy moral sense pulls her out of this vicious nonsense. Enjoy!
