Looking at it from the perspective of the Divine is a tactic that jimmie fears. He wants you to subject God to what the bible says, rather than subjecting what the bible says to God.
Oh. Maybe jimmie could confirm this...I would not have guessed that was what he meant.
Thank you as always, Pleroo.

I would never be considered a Universalist in your circle. And many Bible born again Christians would have deep concerns about your eternal destiny and your fellow believers. As I stated before think many of you are in extreme danger. You really do see this, donít you?
In your eyes only. O.H.M.S.

I tell you, open Your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest. So why are threatening the harvest?.

I like that train of thought. In my experience nothing was quite as bad as realizing that, at certain times, I was actually the instigator of some cruelty.

Great question Zero!
But didn't you get it was described as the SECOND Death?

NONE of us would be resurrected without the Ransom!
Those raised and judged BY Jesus as wicked will experience the SECOND one- which lasts FOREVER!
Satan very quickly, after Adam, instituted religions perpetrating that NONE of us ever die!

"Torturing with 'Love'- FOREVER" makes no sense to me at ALL!
Don't you consider this love?

Yes, just like the servant who was unmerciful. The lake of fire like this earth is a passing place that many of us will pass through. Only the unmerciful would think there is no passing through it.

And in wrath his master turned him over to the torturers (the jailers), till he should pay all that he owed.

The jailer of self condemnation is mean old piece of work. Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those that trespass against us.

No, Having met our God, I know there is nothing to fear from God. I am more concerned about my own failings and their consequences. I believe we will reap whatever we sow here and have not repented of, so that is my concern.

Actually, it's very compatible, ye of little faith. And what's a BIBLE BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN?
Do you honestly believe that you are born again, just because you have and read a BIBLE?

Therein is the kernel of truth that we all should pay attention to regarding our impact on this world.
