So you believe in more than one God?

How many Gods are in your personal pantheon?

Somehow I knew you or someone else would say this. I can just about guarantee that you are experiencing doubt as to the ET belief and you will not admit it. I wouldn't either so I don't hold that against you. You shouldn't hold it against me that I have been shown the truth, and that truth is that ALL will be saved.

The problem is, a lot of other people throughout history have made those exact same claims of a direct revelation from God about what is and is not "the truth."

How do you prove that your "direct revelation" from God is any more valid than, say, that of David Koresh, Pat Robertson, or Sun Myung Moon?

Are we supposed to just take your word for it?

No, I am a believer and I believe 100%. I do not doubt anything in the Bible.

To answer your question about why we talk about our beliefs, one reason is because we don't like seeing God's character assassinated. If someone accused my daddy of setting someone on fire to torture them, I'd defend him, too.

You asked why we waste our time on the forum when we could be telling others besides people who believe in Jesus. I could ask you a similar question. Why do you waste your time on here when, if hell is a literal lake of fire - NOTHING ELSE MATTERS!! Why don't you get off the computer and try to make sure everyone you meet isn't on their way to hell? You asked if we should be out shopping or something? Well since we know that God has no intention of setting anyone on fire for eternity, it would be reasonable for use to choose shopping or being on the internet or getting a pedicure. But what about YOU? Are you going to get a pedicure and not bother to ask the person working on your feet if they are on their way to hell? What if they are not a believer and they die right after the nail polish dries on your feet? What are you going to tell God when you get to heaven? I don't know why ETers can't see the insanity of it, and instead fool themselves into believing it's true, but not their problem. If it's true, WHAT ARE YOU DOING ABOUT IT?

Sorry but telepathic powers of interpreting gnostic gobbledygook are not my strong suit. I couldn't make heads or tails of Eckhart Tolle either.

Not interested in playing "What does he/she really mean?"

I think we will have to call a truce here, you and I. Deal?
