All of us have faced examinations in our life. Be it in school or college or any other degree program. When we speak about exams, there are few criteria which is mandatory for any examination committee to take care while formulating the exam rules.
- The entry time to exam hall must be equal for all examinees.
- All examinees must be given equal number of questions to solve.
- The total time of examination should be equal for all.
- All examinees must be treated equally by the examiner.
Now, suppose, you appear in an examination, and, you see that, your fellow examinee is allowed to enter into exam hall 01 hour after the exam started. He is not given any question paper has no questions.When the results are out, you see, he has passed with 100%. After seeing this, how would you feel? Don’t you feel its unfair? Ofcouse you do.
Now, coming to my point. We will change the scenario. What if I say that the same situation applies to your God’s judgement also. Theists claims life is a test, and we will be evaluated on the basis of our deed in our life, after which God will decide who will enter hell/heaven, depending upon our deeds. Now, consider, I was born at time t1 and died at time t2. I lived for time (t2-t1). Another person was born at time x1 and died at time x2. He lived for (x2-x1). Now, if (t2-t1)>(x2-x1), it means, I lived longer that him. This means my change of committing evil/sin was more than his. So, my changes of going into hell is more than that of him.
Now, consider an another scenario. A child was born and then he died the same day. This makes his chance to enter heaven 100% percent. Another person lives for 80 years. Therefore, his chance of entering heaven is less than 100%, as he had more chances of committing sin (even if its 0.01%) in the life span of 80 years, compared to a child who lived for only 1 day.
In both of the above situations, you will find that criteria for evaluating two different persons is different. The rules for evaluation is different. Why is it so? If one’s life and death is solely in the hands of God, why did he make let one person to live only for 1 day, thereby increasing his chances to enter heaven, more than a person who lived for 80 years and has more chance of committing sin? Why it is not that, every person has same life span, say x years, so that they have equal opportunity to claim their right on heaven?
Now, Do you still consider God to be a just judge?
