I do think that everything in the Bible is true
and it is not I who will be in for a shock.
But that has nothing to do with what I said
and your ignorance would be forgivable,
if it weren't for the vast arrogance that you
attach to it.
I have forgotten more about your Bible and
its history than you will ever know. You take
the Bible and wield it as a weapon to harm
others and you use one of the worst versions
of it to do so one the very least accurate.
And there it is. The personal attacks and
the arrogant claims of expertise. <chuckle>
The following is part of my auto-rotating
sig file and not part of the message body.
The atheists and even many "spiritual" people wish
for "Utopia". Little do they realize that this word,
coined by Thomas Moore in a novel, was really
a kind of joke. The word comes from the Greek,
"ou-topos" and is a Greek pun and literally means,
"no place" and the thrust of the novel, is that
what it all boils down to, as it turns out, is that
"no place is a good place". This is why he used
this word! :)
And yet, of course, the atheists in their ignorance
still dream of it and so do the "spiritual" folks
and even Christians today, who have taken on the
new (invented in the early 1800's) self pleasing
and aggrandizing belief called "Dispensationalism".
And so, before the Christians laugh at the atheists,
remember that if you are one of those Christians,
then you also look for the same place. You see,
when you believe that one day Christ will leave Heaven
(think about that... LEAVE HEAVEN... you also look for
this place on Earth, that will simply never exist and so,
YOU ALSO look for this same "Utopia"! (:
Heaven is not a place that God and His Christ are going
to leave, to come and live on a planet. How do we know
that for sure? Easy! :)
God says in His word that He does not dwell in buildings
(Acts 7:48-50) and yet, you expect Him to live on a
physical plane, even though He is outside of it and is
a Spirit and must be worshipped in spirit and in truth,
as the Scriptures say (John 4:24).
God does not come to live within His creation, but rather,
is above it! And so, when you acknowledge that He is
above His creation (and Dispensationalists surely do indeed
acknowledge that) and then claim that He will come here
with His Son to live, which means they will indeed have to
be physical, human beings at that point, then you have
indeed belittled God and denied His word and have tried
to make Him as small as you are, since Him doing this
would make Him subject to this world's physical laws
if He is going to be physical and therefore, He would
also be subject to linear time, which would then have
God aging, which, when you boil it down, is the exact
claim that Dispensationalism ends up making!
Think about this! Think hard about this! Think really hard
and you will find that all you can do when shown this, is to
immediately try to make things up on the fly to try to get
around this and that should tell you something, amen?
Your only other option is to personally attack me and
pretend that means you have defended your belief.
Either way, it's really very sad!
And so, shame on anyone who believes that sort of thing!!!
Shame! Shame!! Shame!!!
