Did god really condemn mankind? Is god a just god?

God’s condemnation is quite severe. Hell and death, if you are a literalist believer.

Meanwhile, scriptures say that the penalty for sin is closer to what we generally view as justice. That justice being an eye for an eye. This means that the penalty is close to the severity of the sin. If I kill, I earn death. If I steal, I only forfeit my wealth. I do not earn death. This justice seems fair to me.

Since few of us ever kill, few of us should earn hell and death. Yet scriptures indicate that the vast majority of our souls end in hell and death, while only the few reach heaven.

Can god be just if he exceeds the good justice standard that the bible, god’s WORD, claims is just?

There is no doubt that we are all sinners. Be that condition, imposed by god or nature, is forced upon us at birth.

If you think you have been condemned to hell and death and need a savior, can you tell us what sin of yours earned you hell and death?

Thanks.

It depends on what rules I consider "true"

Under some circumstances, it may be just a few "Hail Mary"'s, or other rules may dictate "Eternal Hell!!"

There's a possibility; playing with the context that God didn't condemn everyone as his intentional reason and for punishment but rather, like Jurassic Park, God didn't do much thinking prior to 'letting it all be'; more of a criticism of God's ingenuity and not a telling of their wraith.

Given his crimes against humanity, I have more than a stone for the S. O. B.

Tsk tsk. Incompetence in god is great.

When you think of god as creator, for him to create any soul that does not reach heaven, would be a failure on his part.

At the end of days, if Jesus/God cannot say, I saved all souls, then he is admitting that his creating powers are defective and not Godlike.

Yes. I highly support the insight 'Guilty by design.'
