Not the death you ascribe too. Death is the frustration of not hitting the mark. Life is hitting it.

Are you a 1500 year Isrealite? Did God command YOU to stone and murder? Do not distort God’s Word

Bacteria put on the outside of the International Space Station survived for 553 days. The bacteria were brought back to earth and continued to thrive.

So, science has proven that bacteria (at least certain kinds) can exist outside the confines of earth's environment and in the harshness of the vacuum of space.
Nice guessing by scientists but that is not what he said. ‘Science proves the existence of bacteria outside the confines of planet earth’.

Science has not proven life exists outside earth. But I understand the confusion as astronomical sciences has turned into the science of guessing similar to other science fiction; anthropology and darwinism.

Holy freaken cow!

You worship a thing that DID command that.

It also commanded the slaughter of infants in 1sam15. What a god

Seriously how do you worship this thing?

Holy freekin cow? You worship cows? How messed up is that? See how the twisting of linguistics works?

God is sovereign, holy, and without able to commit an error. Therefore, every thought and action by God is perfect.

Yet your beliefs about him have doing worse things than those you believe he's condemning. Your god basically needs saving.

Nothing. If something I see conflicts with Scripture, then what I'm seeing probably isn't the Spirit of God driving it.

My post has nothing to do with scientists guessing anything. I said that ''I'm'' not sure what Mr. Retired had in mind with his statement and offered up what he may have had in mind. How a person says something doesn't necessarily reflect his intended meaning.

No, scientists have not proven that life exists on other planets, although it's highly unlikely that life doesn't exist elsewhere in the Universe. But it has been proven that bacteria can exist outside of earth's environment which may have been what Mr.Retired meant. Or it may not have been.

In an attempt to keep this on the topic of the thread, the Bible is silent on the matter of whether there is life on other planets, and the Spirit of God has not revealed to anyone that there isn't.

John 3 has got absolutely nothing to do with escaping hell and going to heaven. Evangelical christianity has kept the world in darkness through this message, when Jesus' message was all about knowing God the way he did in this life. As he is so are we (if you can believe it) in this >>>>>WORLD.
