Hello friends of Steemchurch and Goldensencer, greetings @maxdevalue I will start in your challenges I hope to do well, this is great community.

Fortunately for us, God is not fair.

Justice means that everyone gets exactly what they deserve. According to many people, justice is when everyone is treated equally.

If God were completely fair, we would all spend eternity in hell, paying for our sins, that is what we deserve. We have all sinned against God (Romans 3:23), and therefore we are worthy of eternal death (Romans 6:23). If we received what we deserved, we would end up in a lake of fire (Revelation 20: 14-15).

But God is not fair; instead, he is merciful and kind, so he sent Jesus Christ to die on the cross in our place, taking the punishment we deserve (2 Corinthians 5:21).

All we need to do is believe in Him, and we will be saved, forgiven, and receive an eternal home in heaven (John 3:16).

However, despite God's loving grace, no one could believe in Him alone (Romans 3: 10-18). God attracted us to Him to believe (John 6:44). God does not attract everyone, but only some people chosen by Him in his wisdom (Romans 8: 29-30; Ephesians 1: 5, 11).

This is "dishonest" in our eyes, because it seems that God does not treat all people equally. However, God is not obligated to choose anyone. After all, again, it would be completely fair for everyone to spend eternity in hell. The fact that God saves some is not unfair to those who have not been saved, since they receive exactly what they deserve.

Those whom God has chosen receive the love and mercy of God. But when God turns our hearts and opens our minds, we all have the opportunity to respond to the revelation of creation (Psalm 18: 1-3), follow the call of conscience that God has placed in us (Romans 2:15) and turn to God.

He who does not do this will receive what he really deserves because of his rejection of Him. Those who reject Him will receive a just punishment (John 3:18, 36). Those who believe receive much more and much better than they deserve. However, no one will receive a punishment greater than he deserves.

Is it fair God?

No Fortunately, God is much more than alone! God is merciful and forgives us, but he is also holy, consistent and just.

@rrosmarycar91, our God is just but he loves us "in such a way" that he forgives us, cares for and restores us without deserving it and expects us to be grateful to Him and live a life of honor in his presence.
