This question was asked by my Atheist friend who was raised Jewish. His point was basically that if we are all inherently sinners (Rom.3:23) than how can God hold us accountable for something we cannot control? To him it seems like "the cards are stacked against us" and "God cannot be good if he concerns someone to hell for something they can't help"
I was hoping someone here has some good verses from the Bible or quotes from some well respected theologians that might help clarify this because I couldn't think of a good answer for him other that 'God can do whatever He wants because He's God'. I told him I'd research and try to find a good answer for him. Thanks in advance for the help!
