Re: IN THE LIGHT
You dredge up a dead thread to post this filth? This drivel? This mindless, meaningless waste of words and server space?

What the hell for? Do you like the look of your posts? Are you enamored by your own words?

Or are you so utterly fucking screwed up in the head, that this shit actually makes sense to you?

Since this thread is so old, how many of the beliefs that you expressed seven years ago do you still hold?

Re: Who, Where and What?
That's a bit of a personal question isn't it?

Faith and belief is a bit of a personal matter.

Re: Resurrected Thread on John 3
Jesus says to Nick, "Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God." So we have a source of birth. A spiritual birth. Note that Jesus doesnt just say spirit as in "we've got spirit yes we do, we've got spirit how bout you?"

It's okay to only read what you want to read, but don't expect to ever have a clue in hell what the text is saying if you do.

If we read on, we see exactly what it means to be 'born of water and of the Spirit' (emphasis added):

quote:
John 3:18–21 (NRSV):

Those who believe in him are not condemned; but those who do not believe are condemned already, because they have not believed in the name of the only Son of God. And this is the judgement, that the light has come into the world, and people loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil. For all who do evil hate the light and do not come to the light, so that their deeds may not be exposed. But those who do what is true come to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that their deeds have been done in God.'


Does this mean that in order to get inspiration I need to work at it?

What does the text say?

Re: Reversed writings Vs Vulgate [ gates of hell ]
English, of course, is the preferred language of this forum, and the language you will have to use if you expect a response from me.
