If There is a Being Who Would Condemn

If there is a being who would condemn my wife and children to hell, I stand against him. If there is a being who would condemn any to hell, I stand against him. He is my enemy, and I will not worship him. He is not good. He is not wise. He is not God.

I know nothing about your family and I assume that hell will not be part of their future. That being said, consider how God might rephrase your statement for his own purposes.

If there is a being who would reject my loving offer of forgiveness and, in contemptuous pride, forever refuse to bend his knee before me, I stand against him. I stand against him only because he stands against me. If he did not stand against me I would gladly stand with him. In so far as he stands against me, he is my enemy, and I will not allow him in my presence. He doesn't desire me and so I leave him to what he truly desires - himself.
