RE: At least the young man is studying Scripture. He may find the truth.

2 Peter 3:15-16

5 Bear in mind that our Lord’s patience means salvation, just as our dear brother Paul also wrote you with the wisdom that God gave him. 16 He writes the same way in all his letters, speaking in them of these matters. His letters contain some things that are hard to understand, which ignorant and unstable people distort, as they do the other Scriptures, to their own destruction.

I hold out more hope for him than folks like Dan Savage (See Dan Savage ‘bullying’ Christians by calling Bible ‘bullsh*t’)

I see the destruction Peter is talking about being not a destruction of the individual but that of the 'old man', redeemed through repentance of sin. The Lord loves all and wishes all to His kingdom. Faith and salvation is a path and process.

At least the young man is studying Scripture. He may find the truth.

Sadly, he's not looking for truth but for loopholes.
