If nobody is perfect then we dont have the ability to be perfect. If we cant be perfect then our imperfections are not punishable.

  • Like i just said if nobody is perfect then we dont have the ability to be perfect

    Otherwise some people would be perfect. And if we cant be perfect then our imperfections arent punishable. And all throughout the bible it says god punishes people for things that are beyond their control. He does this in the story of adam and eve punishing the entire human race and all the animals with evil for the mistakes of the first two people. He did this in the story of noah punishing every child and animal for the sins of the wicked when he is all powerful and could have just killed the wicked. And in exodus 20: 5 it litteraly says he punishes children for the sins of the parents. This god is sadistic and cruel and im glad i know hes made up or else id fear for the future of humanity. If we had to spend eternity with a god that punishes everyone for the sins of a few then we would always be being punished.

  • Humans Will Forever Live Imperfect Lives- Unless...

    The Bible states that it is foolish for humans to try and attain perfection; it can never be done. It is stated that humans indeed begin sinning at birth. It's worse to God for one to not believe in him than it is to commit sins. The punishment for sin, from the very beginning on up, was to live an imperfect life, and the original purpose of Hell was to punish humans for their sins. However, it is stated in the Bible that if one believes in God, acknowledges that Jesus is his son, and confesses their sins while begging for forgiveness, then they will attain Heaven no matter what. Thus we are only punished for our imperfections if we do not also believe in God, according to the Bible. Also, consider how many individuals who live extremely sinful and morally-lacking lives actually believe in God. The purpose of items such as the Ten Commandments is such that, if they are followed to one's best ability, then the life lived will be the best possible.

  • Oh look! An Excuse!

    What we are really saying is that we should never be held accountable for our actions ... Because ... Drum roll no one is perfect. Therefore some actions do not have different consequences? Yeah, everyone is less than fully honest all the time. When caught in this, the consequences are embarrassing and we learn. Everyone is however, not a murder. A thief. A armed robber. A drug dealer. An addict.

    We make choices that have different consequences. While the drug dealer needs to be locked up, the addict? Despite being involved in the same drug trade? Probably needs treatment and counseling. But heh, No one is perfect, so no one can or should get any consequences whatsoever.

    I hear that, and all I wonder is, "What are they attempting to rationalize?"

  • If they commit crimes from their Imperfections, Yes, they should be punished:

    There is no afterlife, so I can only comment on this life. Personal differences don't count unless they are either criminally insane or incapable of functioning normally. Most of us are somewhere in the middle, much due to genetics, environment and other influences such as drugs. If your stuff up, imperfections may be used as excuses for minor misdemeanors, such as autism for swearing in public, but for major stuff ups, such as murder, it should not be accepted as an excuse.

  • Imperfection was never an issue

    We were never meant to be perfect, the most we can get is a perfect body (if you believe in that). The problem is that, while being imperfect was never an issue, our actions and their consequences are very much a thing. All men should be held accountable for their actions in this life or the other, this is a fundamental principle in any philosophy or religion. Humanity has this overwhelming sense of justice embedded into it.
    Also please note that without a precise definition of what perfection is and is not, you're basically saying that Hitler wasn't perfect, let's not judge him (yes, another Hitler argument..Sorry)

In a coloquial sense, nobody is perfect. We are responsible for our actions and thus we should be.

If theres nothing we can do to keep from sinning then we shouldnt be punished for our sins. If you think otherwise your morally incompetent. Why should we be punished for things that are beyond our control?

@steffon66

God does not punish people for sinning, unless it's willful and unrepentant. The Bible is clear on this. If we confess our sins, he will forgive us. But one must first accept Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. Even Christians sin. No one is perfect. Yet we can be made right with God, through Jesus Christ. If you don't know or understand such a simple concept, then you are hardly qualified to comment on it.

I understand the concept but the bible does say repeatedly that god punishes people for other peoples sins. He did this in the story of noah and the story of adam and eve and in exodus 20:5. And my point is still valid. The christian god punishes people for there imperfections when they dont believe in jesus. I guess everybody else who believes in a different god are screwed. That or your screwed because one of these other religions are right.
