JUDAS IN HELLVEN
When you ask Christians about Pharaoh, Jezebel, Nebuchadnezzar, Goliath, they will tell you that they are in hell, ask about Judas, trouble starts. While some say he is going to be in hell, some would say God knows best but based on their arguments against Judas, one can say they have an idea of where he would be based on church teachings.
Unfortunately, they preach repentance and love but I put it to them that no Christian has ever laid emphasis on the repentance of Judas Iscariot to have felt so bad and dropped the pieces of silver though there is a contradiction that he bought a land with it.
To agree with his soberness and throwing down the money, does this repentance have no effect? As Ezekiel 18 puts it,
21 “But if a wicked person turns away from all the sins they have committed and keeps all my decrees and does what is just and right, that person will surely live; they will not die.
22 None of the offenses they have committed will be remembered against them. Because of the righteous things they have done, they will live.
23 Do I take any pleasure in the death of the wicked? declares the Sovereign Lord. Rather, am I not pleased when they turn from their ways and live?
Can we start talking about the repentance of Judas? He committed suicide by hanging himself, yes, but what about the contradiction of acts that he fell headlong? Jesus said he’ll judge the 12 tribes of Israel with his disciples? So?
Someone already solved the equation. If Judas did good and bad, perhaps, he would be in HELLVEN.
