Serious Question: To all those who believe in a God who predestines people, His loving creation, to hell without a hope, without a chance of redemption, how does this verse fit into your theology?
Don’t take His patience as indifference. Time is just an odd thing. Before we know it, we will be in eternity where time will be at best much less relevant, if nonexistent. God is outside of time though He created it, along with space and matter. To Him, one day is a thousand years and a thousand is just one.
