Space and time cannot be measured.

You are one in a million, think about that, about all the seed that died and didn't make it to the uterus, you are truly unique.

I say that God caused the big bang and set out to make humans with spirit from this.

Think how many billions of years he spent in making just you, billions of years waiting for a thinking, aware, careing person who could easily serve as a judge for the multitudes.

God has billions and billions of planets where humans are evolving and we are the desired product as we have seriously become aware.

Think of all the trillions and trillions of animals who died in order to get to you....

Your reason, your capacity for love and your awareness was the desired product of 16 billion years in the making, I hardly think God will cast you away seeing that there are a billion planets evolvkng where even you could become a guiding spirit.

If there is a God, then God makes planets to form aware humans to indwell them with a spirtual seed that they cultivate and thus, God is ever expanding, and we are the almost finished product, like Jesus says, if God cares so much for the sparrows, what must he think of us.

He has work for us, the work never ends.

The promise Jesus gives to the overcomer is to have his own Earth, and this promise can not be made with one Earth unless there is only one overcomer, this promise insinuates there being very many Earths filled with people.
I look forward to meeting them.

I think all God does is guide people and when those people die, they become guides as part of the army of the Lord....

There are many things to show us the work God has, each person is appointed a spirit, their own angel...... God says stuff like,'' who will be a decieving spirit in the mouth of this man?'' The spirits around say,'' I will, I will,'' So they went down and spoke lies to a person they were supposed to speak lies to. Of course there are guiding spirits to do the will of God no matter for good or bad, every spirit has a purpose. We saw the army of the Lord come to Elisha, and that army was there for a reason, and there was the same amount of soldiers in the army of God as thete were for each man in the enemy's army, that one spirit went down to each man to blind them.......

Lord knows what kind of cool arse fun God has waiting for us like that, I mean to go down into a man to enter him and make him blind, that has got to be a blunt moment. Cool right?

Yup, after that stunt, we would be partying man, laughing at all those poor unaware soldiers who couldn't figure out why they was blind, talk about the high 5's that have must have occured after that, yeah, good times, good times.

You remember Jewade, you were there.

What the heck is a conservado jew? I ask because I have never heard such a term. There are shephardic jews, reformed jews, hassdic jews, ultra orthodox jews ,etc. We are roman Catholics and my brother in law is a jew. I also have cousins on both sides who are protestants. My mom's mother was a hungarian presybterian, and married a member of the Hungarian Byzantine Rite, which is an eastern rite branch of the catholic church. My dad was german, his father 's people were Bavarian Catholics and his mother's people were Lutherans from Riga,latvia, they are what is known as baltic germans.
My father could speak yiddish. Always remember him saying if you can speak german, you can learn yiddish. He wasn't ashamed of that ability, in fact he seemed proud of it. When the movie 'A Stranger Among US" with Melanie Griffith came out years ago, well it was set in the jewish community in New York City, and she was a detective investigating a series of murders in tthe community. Well the jewish hero had to explain various jewish customs and such to her. The majority of it we already knew from what our dad told us.
My dad, who studied apologetics with the Jesuits at Marquette University when attending classes there, never once expressed any interest in running around converting Jews. I guess he figured that since God considered them His chosen people , that the Almighty Father would deal with them in His own time and fashion.
Oh by the way Hannibal Flavius, a lot of jews do marry catholics, why I don't know, but they do. Now that may not be true of the Hassids or Ultra Orthodox, but for others less observant, like reformed, it's not an issue.

I find Jesus ' ran around ' expressing interest in converting Jews - Luke 4:43
Later Jesus gave Christians that job to not only go to the Jews, but to the Samaritans and the people of the nations.
- Matthew 24:14; Acts 1:8.

2 Timothy 2:24,25: "For a slave of the Lord does not need to fight, but needs to be gentle toward all, qualified to teach, showing restraint when wronged, 25 instructing with mildness those not favorably disposed. Perhaps God may give them repentance leading to an accurate knowledge of truth."

Jesus chose Paul, who wrote the inspired text above, to be on his team. These folks are not like Paul.

And awe gripped all the people, and they were glorifying God, and they were saying, ďA great Prophet has arisen among us, and God has visited his people.
Confounding scriptures, so well expounded on. Thank you!

If you want to be on the team, than you should be telling people that their sins are not being held against them; not that they will be damned to an eternal hellhole, if they do not believe the right things.
