Yes many died and went to paradise before Jesus became a man and walked on earth, but those were looking forward to His comming. You may challanga all you wish. I simply told you what God says.<quoted text>
@@ More like all the crap that's fit to flush.
Jesus was here from the begining and will be here till the end.
Those before the cross looked forward to, and those now look back upon.
You say those who live a rightous life go to Heaven?
That's exactly what God says as well.
Yet can a person live this way?
Go back to the big 10.
Have you ever lied? If so what does that make you?
Ever stolen? If so....
Ever used Gods name in vain?....
Your idea of rightous and Gods idea are two different ideas.
Your rightousness, and mine are filthy rags in His sight.
I have the imputed rightousness of God.
Many who have not read the bible, becouse they can't read or whatever reason did have this same rightousness, but those who can read and have a bible can put a name on it.:)
