  2. if they are deported they will be back in two weeks. tops. most will have their same job waiting for them. unless we go after those harboring them it will never end.
  3. I fail to see the reason Chelsea Clinton cooking anything is news. its not news. gross or delicious. not news.
  4. 1 corinthians 15 O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?[a]” 56 For sin is the sting that results in death, and the law gives sin its power. 57 But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ. this one just for fun! Rev 1:17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: Rev 1:18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
  5. 2Co 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 2Co 11:15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
  6. First i would like to address i was not commenting to you, or directly to you. so i was not putting words in your mouth or saying you believe this or that. not sure i read your post at all. Im not being dismissive. The teaching that hell is temporary is new, hence the use of the word traditional in the threads title. For a very long time people simply believed what the bible says, which is, hell is forever. cherry picking scriptures or misinterpreting scriptures to suit a belief, which started out as a loving God cant be that cruel. I remember very well, when this teaching surfaced thats what was said. Most believers simply just dismissed this teaching without a second thought. and thats why its silly. scripture does not support that hell is temporary. period. What is so hard to understand about Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched? There is only one context for this. worms, probably maggots, eating forever the flesh and the fire never goes out.... just like Jesus reference to ghenna which was at that time a trash dump where the fire never went out.... day or night. there is no hint to temporary found here. for eternal yes, its there. And so am i to believe God contradicts Himself? Thru His Word? The Word, who became flesh and dwelt amoung us? the teaching hell is temporary stems from a catholic view. If you wish to dilute Gods Word thats on whoever does that. I will not nor will i keep silent for the truth, come eternal hell or high water, there is no substitute for the truth. I do not appreciate people trying to make Gods word say something it does not. And lastly, we must not look at one or even a few verses to build a foundation of belief upon. thats a form of cherry picking and its not the whole truth. we must look at ALL verses pertaining to the subject and see what Gods word says in total. Thats a big problem today in churches because they dont do that and then we have teachings surface like hell isnt eternal. And waffle i did not and do not mean any offense whatsoever to you or anyone. I still however say its silly because Gods word is clear and when its not and we humbly ask for understanding, wisdom or knowledge, or ask for our eyes to be opened, or ask for truth, God is faithful, i say again, God is faithful. Therefore people have been doing some reading and thinking, but not much praying. rev. 20:20 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. In another place it says hell is cast into the lake of fire, which means people go there. i think its rev 20:14 where it talks about the second death. Make no mistake. For those who deny Jesus Christ in this life, there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth and they shall lie down in torment. hell is nothing like a microwave where in a few minutes, ding times up. God is very precise with His words.
  7. I would not could not eat green pancakes... not in the rain, not on a train... not in a box, not with a fox, not in a house or with a mouse, I would not could not eat green pancakes chelsea clinton.
  8. Arguing about if hell is forever and ever and a day, or you just burn to ash and are no more is so silly. And here is why... You can not ever pay for your sins, no matter how much or long the punishment is. There was only One found worthy to open the seals in heaven, there is only One Holy One of Israel, there is only One Name in which salvation can be obtained. Only one Lamb without spot or blemish upon the altar. No one can ever pay for their own sins so there is no reason to think hell has an end when it says... matt 25:31 Then shall He say also unto them on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels. How do we derive torment in hell has an end with Gods Word using words like everlasting? Shall we say argue, well it does not actually say you are in torment forever??? Please, God is specific with His words. Its not a tradition, its the word of God. Even more... And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. That does not sound much like an allegory to me, what saith thou? Allegory or nay nay?!
  9. all that matters is that your bible time is time with God. Dont matter what version. I like the bible i have which is kjv. My first bible was a paraphrase, not a translation.
  10. I think we owe it to the unborn to put up pictures like this every where. let everyone see what it really is. Abortion is nothing more than sacrificing your own offspring to convenience. they want to say its about womans rights... its her body, the truth is its a right to be a whore and throw away a life because of the irresponsibility of a chosen lifestyle.
  11. So bubbling joy inside you is man made? its all political? Dont let them trick you. Truth is they dont want God to be real because they want to be in control, they want to be about their business and go their way. they dont want to have to look at whats wrong in them. They dont sit around trying to disprove other religions books do they? The logic they use to try and disprove the bible and God is from a very limited viewpoint and very little to zero scriptural knowledge. The fool saith in his heart, there is no God.
  12. The whole world can now rest better tonight knowing that no person can ever discriminate that river. The whole idea is silly.
  13. God isnt going to give you a power. All power is Jesus Christs. Even if you had this power and you did something "good" with it it wouldnt matter. W are saved believing on The Lord. not by doing good stuff. God can and does use people in mighty ways, but its all Him. Its His spirit thru us. its never to us singularly. Even when The Holy Spirit was speaking thru me to someone and they then got saved, those same words ministered to me as well. For a Christian, its all about Jesus all day every day. I find this privilege to be beyond pleasant.
  14. if the enemy attacks then you are doing something right. the enemy always comes at the weak point. notice in genesis the serpent didnt tempt adam but eve. The enmy is going to come at you. no matter what. Jesus said it is finished. so dont worry about the enemy. Lucy has been defeated. Even Jesus was tempted. God has you in His hands. Jesus is Lord of all !!!
