In the question Why will drunkards not inherit the kingdom of God?, the querent asks about drunkards. My question is about revilers (emphasis mine):
1 Corinthians 6:9-11 (ESV):
9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, 10 nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
What is a reviler? To revile something, I believe, is to hate it, or find it most disgusting. But to simply say out loud: "I really revile homeless people," does that make me a reviler and therefor not entitled to ascend to heaven? Why is speaking out considered sinful?
Personal note: I am not intimately knowledgeable in or of any organized religions. I did not attend church other than the minimum required to be married in one.
