God imposed His wrath due unto, and the Son underwent the pains of hell for, either:
All the sins of all men. All the sins of some men, or Some sins of all men.
In which case it may be said:
If the last, some sins of all men, then have all men some sins to answer for, and so shall no man be saved. If the second, that is it which we affirm, that Christ in their stead and room suffered for all the sins of all the elect in the world. But if the first be true, why are not all men free from the punishment due unto their sins?
You answer, "Because of their unbelief."
I ask, "Is this unbelief a sin, or is it not? If it is, then Christ suffered the punishment due unto it, or He did not. If He did, why must that hinder them more than their other sins for which He died? If He did not, He did not die for all their sins!"
1) What Christians are they asking? With so many movements and denominations who are you asking? Seeker-senitive type groups? Or confessionals or groups that support higher learning.
2) Who did they ask for non-Christians? College Professors, businessmen?
3) Should this advise us as Christians to be building our knowledge in a non-prideful way?
4) With many Christians homeschooling their children why isn't their data input from the fact that Homeschoolers generally achiever higher test scores than public schoolers?
5)Remember that Christianity isn't for the smart or foolish, its for the sinful, and we are all sinful, while secularism often tries to convince by saying "If your smart you wouldn't believe that" and people WANT to be smart.
The military is generally more "Christian" than other parts of society. I don't think they will buy it, why should they? Many Chaplains would easily help with support for even non-believers in an act of support and well being of soldiers.
