King David, Gods elite spiritual king--allowed his treacherous and desperate heart to have Bathsheba and send her husband to his death so he could have her. All possess that heart. His son Solomon-Gods elite spiritual king who had many wives, did not heed Gods wise council, and let his treacherous and desperate heart beat him by marrying foreign wives( God told Israel not to do that) and fell to false god practices.

The world says-- follow your heart
God says--beware of your heart.

The organ they were following was NOT their hearts! Lust has nothing to do with love or our heart. Thanks to Jesus we have the Comforter to guide us to the Truth God has now "written in our hearts."

Holy Spirit of agape love (Who IS God) as described in the Sermon on the Mount, 1st Cor 13, and Galatians 5
Seriously....

Seems like a bit of a contradiction to quote the Bible after claiming your views should not be based on it.

But once you believe He correctly represented God as agape love and demonstrated it unambiguously, it is easy to discern what in the Bible is from God or Jesus and what is from primitive ignorant men. Testing the spirit of what is in the Bible against the Holy Spirit of agape love (Who IS God) as described in the Sermon on the Mount, 1st Cor 13, and Galatians 5 is the way to know what in the Bible is true and what is from the ignorance of primitive men.

It helps if you read what was said in context without using your manipulation tactics.
Discernment will also help you when studying what is contrary to that which is good.

I heard eternity explained this way. Imagine the tallest mountain in the world. Every one-hundred years (ie once per century) a bird flies over the top of it carrying a feather in its mouth. The feather is used to "scoop" away at the mountain.


Actually, it goes this way:
Somewhere in space, there is a diamond ten times size of Dzhomolungma. Once every ten thousand years, a peacock flies by, and brushes tip of it with a tail feather.
When the entire diamond is rubbed off to nothing, that is one moment in eternity.

Look, eternity can not be comprehended. Just like god.

There is no time in eternity. Eternity IS.
There is no measurements in eternity. It has no dimensions, you can't measure it or put a limit to it.
Anything that is of eternity IS. Concepts, human mind applies to it, are perfectly inapplicable, as they are based in completely different habitat.

So no, there is no boredom in eternity also.

They are quoted to you(not at you) because you believe there is no other way to God other than by the bible.So to reach someone like yourself steeped in bible idolatry, the only chance you will give an ear to what is being said to you is, the bible being quoted with it. If i don't see it in the bible it cannot be God is simply narrow mindedness.

Feather scooping at mountain.....

Where did you hear that?

As for eternity, it is what it is. Eternity does not end. You can try to redefine the word, but it won't change it.

Feather scooping AWAY at mountain. Are you really that closed minded you will not consider anything that does not sound like bible terminology?.

How long do you think it would take to scoop away a mountain with a feather?.

Your bible says the word of God is in our heart, it also says that he gives to us the desires of our heart, it also says what is in it comes out..... The good man brings forth good things from it, those like you who believe the heart is wicked and should never be listened too, brings forth evil from it. If your heart is evil, how can it possibly be trusted to believe with it ?..... Wake up man to what you are saying.
