what trout means to me, and i agree 100% with him, if it wasn't for Fundy think types our beliefs systems would have evolved past left-wing/right wing and god/no god. we would be discussing the best way to describe the universe while helping as many of us as we can.

none of it based on a religions view of god. it would be based on making stuff and helping people.

the good news is I think that happens in 200 years or less. wait, I had my cell phone for two years now ... make that 198 years or less.

No one is keeping you from going over to the science forum and discussing how the universe works. You have to specifically log into this area in order to get flustered about religion and spirituality.

The prophesies initially contained in Scripture are fulfilled by Jesus.
OT prophecy that that relies on the NT for confirmation. Circular reasoning.

If the FSM appeared in your bedroom at night and waggled His Noodly appendages at you, you'd believe in Him allright.

Waving superstitious fantasies around as impalpable attempts at intimidation are just something to laugh at.

Israel had to look upon the viper on a pole in order to be healed, and this only pointed to Jesus being that snake upon a pole, and we claim that Jesus crushed the head of the vipor in death, and we also claim that the head of the snake will be healed after it was crushed by Jesus.

The prophesy God spoke to Eve was that one day a son would be born of her, and he would crush the head of the snake.

Adam and Eve WERE the most beautiful creature, it was their problem, that creature was their covering in the garden before they sinned, and when they went against God, they became naked because they fell, and their covering fell, and now they needed a new covering.

Satan is the evil incliniation within all people, and the proof that he is there, is that we have no strength to not sin.

Satan is described in the prophets and he is made of precious stones, he was perfect. Mankind was perfect, until the whole being fell. What we see in the last chapters of Revelation is describing the return of the most beautiful creature. When Revelation begins depicting the temple/CITY(A Human), we then see the return of the precious covering of precious stones, and the ONLY REASON for Revelation to describes those stones in such a way, it is ONLY to refer us right back to where we find those same stones in the Old Testament, there can be no mistake about this, that depiction of the city built in precious stones was to point us right back to what Satan was, and what Satan looked like before the fall when he was the most beautiful creature.

That city in Revelation is describing what a person is and what he looks like after his transformation, it is not a place, a person is a temple, and the temple became a city. When we look up the word,'' City,'' in the New Testament, it shows us one person, that they are a city set upon a hill.

Does Satan really talk to God?

Does Satan ask that disciples should be handed over to him so that he can sift them as wheat in order to make them righteous?

Are disciples handed over to Satan that he may refine them as gold?

How is a person handed over to Satan?

No, the Bible we written By man inspired by God supposedly, given that you cant prove God is real were back to the Bible being written by man.
