This is another short and sweet one from my friend, Julian Haydon. See what you think.


  1. Before the Creation, there was only God.
  2. There was no sin, sorrow or suffering — temporal or eternal — for man or animals.
  3. God created the world and gave man the ‘loving gift of free will’.
  4. By his omniscience God knew that most of those thrust into existence without consent would be unable or unwilling, the way He  “designed” them, to follow His rules, especially since those were so poorly and spottily communicated.
  5. God chose not use his omnipotence to leave uncreated and in their innocent nothingness those “many” whom Jesus said would sin and suffer forever for it.
  6. Nor, did He repair their defects and create them so they would use their “free will” as the “few” saved would do.
  7. One good thing, while life here for animals is surely hell for most, “God’s loving plan” as revealed to us does not extend that Hell into eternity too.
  8. For all those civilized enough to value love and justice, mercy and forgiveness for what those words mean, God’s infinite Sin is unforgivable.


Wonderful indeed that there are a ton of scientific, historical and logical reasons for knowing it is all just a nightmare of man’s invention.

Millions need to hear them to be saved from this hateful and evil idea.


Christians must give an grudging yes to 1 – 6, must they not?

But, is this not a far easier ground to argue to the average person, and assuredly to the young who are already more dubious, than trying a conversion on the basis of arguments long met and honed with contrived and practiced obfuscations?

Aren’t the young more likely to see this God, claimed as a “loving, just and merciful father”, as a cruel mockery of the meanings of those words?

At the very least, is it not a welcome new line of argument, simple, with self-evident aspects and maybe even interesting?

I hope someone will improve it while keeping it simple — and then help evangelize it!
