You deserve a full response on this and I will get that to you soon. For now, I think you are missing my point and grossly misrepresent my perspective to say that our acceptance is conditional. It should be clear that God communicated something and He intends us to understand it. Is it to no purpose that Jesus said “unless you repent you will likewise perish?” He must have meant to communicate something specific by that. When He said “unless you believe that I am He, you will perish in your sins.”
John 3 says:
17“For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.
18He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19“This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil.
20“For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.
It means something, something of absolute eternal significance.
I appreciate your patience with me.
