Yes I understand that you as other Christians want people to fear.... You know I have a faith and a G-d and I do not fear.... I do feel sorry for those who seek to strike fear in the hearts of others....

One day you as all the other fear mongers will find that the spiritual reality is not what you all have thought....

That I am sure of!

LMAO. I might be tempted to pray with the nurse...only mine would begin with "Dear Lord Satan" just to see the look on his or her face.

Actually it's going to be the other way around.

Like I said my faith is as strong as yours and right. You are simply a fear monger and one day you will find that you may not have been right. The difference is I don't think you are heading to hell. I do feel sorry for you though because you have spent a lifetime trying to make others fear.

It does in fact seem that the Gospel has become a "message of fear and terror" for many Christians. Terrorizing people into believing in God.

REALLY strange..

Blessings!

The problem with the church today that the Bible splendidly foretold of in the last days is the loss of the fear of God. Many of these pastors teaching lies like universalism are setting up their congregations to go to Hell or get left behind at the rapture.

A classic universalist response to an unbeliever - is to succumb to their criticizing and say "Your right. We shouldn't be teaching the consequences of sin which is eternal hell". And then they won't know what they did wrong when Jesus returns and then you AND them get left behind. How are you helping anyone?

I can't find any examples of the early church doing any of what you said...

Scripturally speaking, it seems that the message should be preaching Christ crucified. God will see to it that none are left out..
