Is the animal world off the hook?

Yeap, they do God´s will. They can´t think to do otherwise.
All animals will go to hell, because they dont have the intelligence like ours to spend half of their lives praying to god for forgiveness for having sex and fighting!
Animals do not have the spirit of God inside them. They are not born again. The Holy Spirit has not come to dwell inside them. So they cannot choose to go to hell like man can.
Humans are animals.
I am not. I am a child of God. Not the relative of a monkey. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!

they do, thats why they are alive.
you are more a relative of a monkey than you think
She doesnt think.
May be only non hairy intelligent bipeds can go to heaven.
lol, you may be on to something here, letting someone or something to think for you is not really thinking; a dog can do that.
I better shave my ass then.
Could neanderthals sin?
What a silly question, how can an animal (or anything for that matter) perform a nonexistant verb?
The good news is, that means she's absolved like the animals.
Sin is whatever we call sin. Shouldn't we be asking "can animals do wrong?" Sin suggests animals will be punished for the things they do, which, I mean, we all know thats not the case.
Animals are absolved from sin because they don't know what it is.
Humans are absolved from sin because they know what it is.
How would we be absolved if we know that we are "sinning". I put that in quotes because it's hard for me to believe that by "sinning" or doing something wrong, I'll be judged after I die. Wouldn't that just leave us more accountable for the things we do?
Sin is choosing to do the wrong thing when you know the right thing to do.
Oh, thats what YOU call sin. Sin is just another label as far as I'm concerned.
