Can Satan Be Forgiven
Daniel 12:2 - And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake , some to everlasting life , and some to shame and everlasting contempt

( Universalism doesn't work ! - I can fill up the rest of this threat here with verses on this ! - it just doesn't work ! )

Can Demons Talk About Jesus
I have this same argument with Christian folk all the time. Is anyone familiar with a Dr. McBean? Revival Tract Ministries.With scriptures he clearly contradicts the MYTH that a possessed person cannot utter the words JESUS IS LORD. Check out ACTS 16 and 19. If you disagree is it because of righteous concern, or is it for intellectual PRIDE? Even satan and his angels (demons) know who Jesus is. You can say that you accept Christ as your savior, but do you really MEAN it? Many Baptist friends I love disagree with me on that one as I think you gotta MEAN it, not just SAY it. Moreover, it implies your salvation is on the merit of YOUR deeds, not the grace of GOD.

Does God Keep His Promises
I said god doesn't keep his promises in a timely fashion. I blame god for nothing. He can do as he pleases. I merely stated that when he does keep his promises it is often too late to be of any value to the person waiting for the fulfilment of it. As for being one of satans workers, who is the one who works for satan. Is it I or the one who judges and condemns those who have a different view than they have. My point of view is based on the word of god- what god has said. You are guilty of idolatry it seems as you you have rationalized god and made him over into your version. God is and is what he said. Perhaps you would do well to really see who god is. He is not a soft, cuddly, feel good god. He is god.

Does God Keep His Promises
God doesn't keep his promises in a timely fashion, he is not an ever present help in time of danger. If god stands by and watches while doing nothing who cares if he's there? If you're about to fall from a cliff and he waits to throw you a rope till you die on the rocks at the foot of said cliff of what help is that? Every bad, evil thing that happens to a person has gods approval for "surely no harm can take place without my consent", and god left himself a loophole- in spite of what he has said he "will bless who he blesses and curse who he curses".

Ask God To Die
I've been suffering for 2 1/2 yrs after brain surgery. I pastor a church, and have pushed through the pain for all this time. all the time asking God to heal me. Because I can do very little. I have had an average of 2 hour of sleep this entire time, which I know should have put me in a crazy house without God's help. I am now praying that God takes me before I lose my mind, and do something bad. No one knows what it is like to be in pain 24/7 365, and very little sleep. the doctors have tried everything they can think of with no results. I'm on 260mgs of morphine a day, and it's been soo long, it's not helping anymore, and they won't up my dose. So all you with the great ideas, give me one.

10 Commandments Eliminated
Isreal never understood either, the Law(10)will not pass away till the end of the book happens, the sins of the law is what the price of the cross payed for!

Rom 8:3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:

Gal 5:14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

10 Commandments Eliminated
Matthew 22:36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

Matthew 22:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

Matthew 22:38 This is the first and great commandment.

Matthew 22:39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

Matthew 22:40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

10 Commandments Eliminated
Lets put this in terms we sinners can understand, the Law cannot save anyone, it can only condemn the guilty. the law cannot stop a DUI,"guilty" the law cannot stop a bullit killing someone,"guilty" the law cannot stop someone from lieing,"guilty". The law cannot save,only condemn, But Love fulfills the law, Love will not Dui, Kill, Lie. our problem is we think it, as Jesus put it "to hate your brother is the same as murder" It would never occur to our heavanly father to do these things, so where did the law(the 10)come from? he simple pointed out our faults, whats wrong with us. hope this helps, and i am a sinful speller,Love Rick

Can I Date A Non-Christian
I understand your rationale, and I am sure that you hope your example of Christ will eventually bring him to faith, but honestly things seldom work out that way. Keep praying for a Believer. The person you are considering now might meet a few of your criteria, but obviously not all.

Should I Date A Non-Christian
You are all aware that 2010/2011 Christian's and Catholics utilised the Australian Family Court as a result of divorce more than unbelievers right?

So all these scriptures you quote don't seem to mean much if the end result with a like minded Christian or Catholic is divorce.

Why Solomon's Many Wives
Guess he loved woman, he was an idiot, strangely was the wisest man on earth. He was a king, so he can have as many wives as he like, I might done the same thing, but we should only have one, which as a result led him astrayed.

Lonely Since Husband Died
Hi, you are not alone being lonely. I haven,t got a Valentine card yet and I am 39, plus I haven,t yet had a girlfriend, while everyone is married, now that is lonely, welcome the lonely planet.

My Son Is Cutting His Arms
God won't help your son to stop cutting. The counselling is the only thing that can help him.

Praying to a silly man in your imagination just shows your neglect for your child, who clearly needs as much help as he can get at the moment. Stop trusting a fictional being to help your son and help him yourself.

Christian Vegetarians Confused
Donna, my source is The Logia by J.Todd Ferrier, which is hard to buy in the USA. At one time we were in spirit form but have fallen into physical form,some 200 million years ago but even now it is unnecessary to eat meat. The ancient hebrews had the original teachings but they fell into the hands of the jews who took all the mystic terms and applied them to the jewish race. The God of love became a spiteful figure in the old testament. Re the 153 fishes, which is not a big catch. They represent a beautiful spiritual story, nothing to do with eating flesh. This is my last post. I wish I could encourage you to be Jesus like and not just believe in biblical quotes.

Thankfully Christianity is a broard church. My gnostic beliefs would have me burnt at the stake 250 years ago. I am responding to this blog because it is inconceivable that Jesus would have eaten the flesh of another creature. You have moved the arguement on a bit. The Acts were written by Luke, who was a friend of Paul. Neither Luke nor Paul knew Jesus nor understood his deeper teachings. That is why the allogorical stories were personalised. One should sacrifice oneself/ones life to God, not a lamb. The waters of truth were turned into the wine of inspiration. It wasn't physical. Jesus wasn't a wine drinker, he was a puritan.

Well Strongaxe, this world has fallen a long way from its former place of grace and beauty. God is love and created only the loving creatures. The evil saurian creations and carnivores were not God created. The betrayers made them. This world is often a virtual hell, for people with addictions and so forth, and especially for the creatures who have to suffer vivisection in the name of science. There is a choice. One can aspire to a higher consciousness or be like an animal.

The New Testament was written for a purpose by the followers of St Paul, to create a kingdom of God on Earth. But they didn't include the real disiples of Jesus. The point being that if you want to be at one with the divine, as Jesus was, you had to live a pure life in body and deed. The writers of the gospels gave a subtle twist to things so that it appeared that Jesus ate meat and fish and drank like the common people. He didn't. Your intuition should agree with this comment.

Donna, I hold gnostic views such as Jesus and John the baptist being the same person. According to my source Jesus was born a normal birth to the most holy race of people on the planet at that time. His family lived on the purest things available to them.There is no way he would cause any creature to suffer. Doesn't the concept of Jesus wringing a chickens neck rankle with you? When the bible stories were first written it was some 30 years after the death of Christ. Paul wanted to build a broard church. This was hardly likely to happen if people were expected to live accetic lives like the brotherhood of disiples, who had very little to do with St Paul. Jesus represents love. He wouldn't kill a lamb any more than I would. Thank you for replying.

Jesus was an essene, a very holy 'race' of people. In fact he was a Nazarene, the most holy of the essenes. He did not eat meat. Think about it. He was pure in thought and deed. Why would he even think about eating the flesh of a living creature?
The reference to fish is about mysteries. On the mount he was revealing mysteries of life to the 'common people.' But they did not understand, hence the return of all the fishes and bread in the narrative. (bread means truths) People like to take these stories literally but they make more sense when you discern the mystical meaning behind them.
