Born again, eh? How was that second trip down the birth canal? I think it squeezed your head a little too hard.

Let me guess. You got thrown out of the Westboro Baptist church for reasons you don't want to talk about and in order to get back in their good graces you think that if you curse enough people here on topix to hell that they will let you back in.

Am I right?

And if not, can you prove it?

"The Revelation" is a form of writing called an "apocalypse". It is not a piece of predictions, but symbolic writing designed to get under the radar of Government officialdom. Code.

Everything in it occurred at the time.

"John" is a diaspora pseudepigraphic work that opens with blatant plagiarizing of the hellenized Jewish philosopher, Philo of Alexandria. A polemic against the Sadducee temple cult and pretty in spots, it's not on it's own a valid record.

Soteriology based upon it leads straight to the heresies of Alexandria, Cappadocia and Nicaea.

Greetings Tony. I've been reading and much enjoying your recently posted, excellent comments in this thread. I love the honesty, openness and good-will in the personal accounts you share here. Thank-you.
I just wanted to point out one thing, if I may.
"Spiritually dead" implies a dead spirit, which is likely as improbable as it is highly doubtable.
So to describe this poster's tenacious mud-wittedness and profound state of unenlightenment, it would seem more accurate to say.........
He is UNspiritual: spiritually ignorant and spiritually unaware.
Thanks. "Spiritually dead" is a common phrase used among his ilk. I simply threw it back at him for maximum effect. Google the phrase and you will find many examples.

I used to listen to/read some of the fundie stuff when I was exploring my faith in my early teens. I am left with some of the jargon.

a better definition of those spiritually alive and dead ........

We do .. however .. speak a message of wisdom among the mature .. but not the wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age .. who are coming to nothing .... No .. we speak of God's secret wisdom .. a wisdom that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began .... None of the rulers of this age understood it .. for if they had .. they would not have crucified the Lord of glory ... HOWEVER .. as it is written: No eye has seen .. no ear has heard .. no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him .... BUT GOD has revealed it to us by his Spirit .. The Spirit searches all things .. even the deep things of God .... For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the man's spirit within him ?.. In the same way no-one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God .... We have not received the spirit of the world but the Spirit who is from God .. that we may understand what God has freely given us ... This is what we speak .. not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit .. expressing spiritual truths in spiritual words ... The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God ..( as demonstrated here ) for they are foolishness to him .. and he cannot understand them .. because they are spiritually discerned .... The spiritual man makes judgments about all things .. but he himself is not subject to any man's judgment:.. For who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct him ?..... But we have the mind of Christ

believe me ... those who are dead will not have a clue as to what this means

they that are of the world hear the world and the world hears them

Well that will wreck some of the poseurs here who think God reveals by a book, rather than by the Spirit.

The "Bride" is Jewish for the Sabbath, especially the Sabbath meal.

So, you're saying knowledge is God? We already have a word for knowledge. It's called KNOWLEDGE. That's not a god of any kind, nor does it need another name.

Why are your magical stories any better than the magical stories about Xenu or God on the planet Kolob or Zeus or Thor?
