Is Living Bread Literial
  
God as a potter, a shepherd, a rock, a fortress, etc.

Jesus as the bread, as the light, as a groom, as a vine, etc.

Christians are the salt.

Out of all those you mention, which one is the one they question him and why?


Is Living Bread Literial
  
Strong axe* However, in the particular case of this particular blog, "bread" is obviously symbolic.

Lets see:

1. This bread is my flesh given to the world, on the cross by the way. Symbolic according to you.

2.My flesh is TRUE food indeed and my blood is true drink. True means true Yes?

3. When ask How can this man give us his flesh to eat?

How did Jesus response to this question?

A. It's not my real flesh I am talking about or

B. My flesh is real food and my blood is real drink.

Strong axe* Jesus was formed in a womb, and not in an oven. He was made of flesh and blood, not wheat and yeast.

Jesus answer to you:

Does this shock you v 61


Is Living Bread Literial
  
Strong Axe*Jesus used many terms that are necessarily symbolic. When he called himself the "bread of life", he was not calling himself a literal loaf of bread, and when he called himself "the vine", he was not saying he was a plant. He frequently spoke in metaphor, expecting his readers could easily tell the difference between literal and metaphorical language.

He also spoke literally, so if I wanted to say that the Holy Spirit is symbolic then I would be right. It would be up to anyone of us to make this claim. Who decides what is symbolic or literal?

How did they response when he said whoever eats this symbolic bread will never die?

What did Jesus mean when he said this bread is my flesh for the life of the world, what this also symbolic?


Hell Bounds Sins
  
The result is that 'fire' at Mt.25:41 and Re.20:10 is for Ruben literal, forcing him to believe fire can burn spirit creatures when the Bible clearly shows fire does not (Da.3:25). The 'fire' in Mt.25:41 & Re.20:10 is thus symbolic.


David wants us to believe in his interpretation of scripture, sorry!


Hell Bounds Sins
  
Even if the 'wild beast' & 'false prophet' are human, the point is they are symbolic of something, what ever your understanding is. Even if the 'wild beast' is a human (and I don't believe it to be)- do you believe there is a human with 'ten horns and seven heads'?

---David8318 on 8/28/10

David is force to believe that the False prophet spoke of in Rev 20 has to be symbolic, other wise how can he explain that the beast is symbolic but the prophet is not but yet one is burning in eternal fire.(Both are in the same place)


Kids Died Before Baptism
  
baptism is not required...God know His own business that we do not understand.

i agree with Mima on 6/29/08
---aka on 8/22/

Then you and mima are going against Jesus:

Acts 2:38 - Peter commands them to repent and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ in order to be actually forgiven of sin.

Matt. 28:19-20 - Jesus commands the apostles to baptize all people "in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit."
