In the beginning.....God created the heavens and the earth.
So you see there is a beginning and there is also 'time'.
However, God is NOT a beginning. God is not an end. God is forever and has always been.
That's what people don't understand.
God created everything in 6 days that includes planets. Humans were created on that last day.
God rested on the 7th day.
We don't know how long Adam was in the garden before God created Eve. Maybe a few hours. Perhaps
a few months. Maybe many years. We also don't know how long Adam and Eve both were in the garden.
Maybe they were in the garden for thousands of years. We don't know.
Perhaps free will was given to Lucifer. I don't know and no one really does of course. All we can do is
guess. God knows everything and maybe God chose to not look ahead at Lucifer. Take the good son,
for example. Always good, always trustworthy, always accountable. So no one looks at the good son
when bad happens. It couldn't be the good son because he is good. Little does maw know the good
son is badder than bad UNTIL one day she decides to look.
IF Eve had not sinned, we probably wouldn't be here. We are born into sin.
Even scientist wonder why we don't live forever. Everything about us is made to renew itself. Think
about the largest organ in the body.....skin. It's rather amazing actually. Get a cut on you one day
and you can watch it disappear as soon as it happens, if you have a mind to. Instead, we break down,
bit by bit, with disease, age, etc.
Well, it depends on how you look at it. Seriously. 'Chariots of the Gods' is a book by Kurt Vonnegut.
I am not sure I spelled his name correctly. In his book he explains how God, angels, and so on are
ET's. I shouldn't say 'are' but 'possibilities'. He does that by comparing the scriptures in the Bible
with ET's. For example, Moses at the burning bush. They would not have called a fire from a space
ship a space ship. They'd call it a burning bush. Vonnegut does a terrific job and if you have never
read the book, it's a quick read. Not a big book.
That's the thing, we apply words to stuff and if we look back in biblical times, our words rarely
match up. We have to look at their way of life back then and their language back then, their
culture, especially the Gailieans.
In regards to hell, yep it exists. According to the Bible, some rich guy was thirsty in hell and ask
for a drink of water. To make it short, he was denied because of how he lived and treated poor
Lazarus when alive.
The longer you live, the more hogwash you'll hear. The best thing to do is to read and study the
bible for yourself. Some day it will be gone and you may wish you had.
No, you don't return to an original state in heaven/hell and you do remember your earth life and
you do know and see your friends, relatives, etc. Even in the passage above when the rich man
ask for water and is denied, he ask for Abraham or Lazarus to tell his family that is alive, but they
reply Moses will be preaching and let them hear Moses. The rich man still cries in hell saying what
if they don't know, what if they don't hear Moses. The answer is pretty much = they're screwed.
Naw, our brains are stupid. We just think we're smart. Look around. A piss ant is smarter than
Yep, false prophets and talk of false prophets = nearing end of times.
I imagine everyone is afraid to die to some extent. The exception might be Billy Graham and my
A lot of people in the world get cremated and it has little to do with expenses. My husband was
cremated per his wishes and I also carried out his final wishes as to where he wanted his ashes
There are religions that believe a body must be buried in the ground. the Bible says ashes to ashes,
dust to dust. Like I said, the body is simply that, a body. The soul is the living value of that body.
So it does not matter, in my opinion, what happens to the body after death. Bury it, burn it, toss in
the sea, etc. I don't believe the soul stays with the body.
Yes, an entire funeral can be very expensive. The plot itself can be $10,000 or more depending on
the cemetery. Then you may choose to have a vault and if you are going that route it would be
dumb not to have a vault. The vault in the ground can run several thousand dollars. Then there
is the casket and here again, I don't know if one can get a cheaper casket than $5,000 unless for
a child perhaps. In the USA, there are funeral homes that do not charge anything for baby. And
then of course there is all the fees of the funeral, body care, visiting hours, etc.
Even cremation can be expensive. It's not always the cheapest way to go, depending on what you
