comment Why should a sinner suffer forever in hell fire?
Fair enough, but we're jumping the bounds of the OP's question here. I'm sure there are other great questions on this site which address the issue of "unreached" people groups. Actually, here's a good one

comment Why should a sinner suffer forever in hell fire?
@AndersonGreen good point. I'll extend the idea put forth in my answer: Up until the point where we decide to be a disciple of Christ, we are defined by our sin and not only deserve separation from God (eternal punishment), but seek it. We are perfectly capable of achieving this on our own.

comment How can one overcome lustful desires?
+1 for that first paragraph. Why depend on my fighting, when Christ's "fight" already put sin to death?!

comment What is significant about the torn curtain?
"...we no longer needed specially appointed people to intercede for us." Probably just semantics, but I want to mention that we do need a specially appointed person to intercede for us. Hebrews is clear that Jesus replaced the need for earthly priests with Himself as our priest now.

comment What evidence is there to support the position that the Bible is truly the Word of God to mankind?
