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
Nobody has a clue what that means because it's complete gibberish broken up by dots.

His-Truth: "Not all are spiritually alive...."

It's not clear what it is you mean to say.
Your statement, as worded, is ambiguous and misleading. It implies that those not "spiritually alive", are spiritually dead.
IMO, rather than saying "Not all are spiritually alive....", it would be closer to the truth to say, "Not all are alive in spirit".

His-Truth: "...believe me ... those who are dead will not have a clue as to what this means..."

While not all those who are alive are alive in spirit, NO ONE alive is spiritually dead.

His-Truth: "...they that are of the world hear the world and the world hears them."

And THEY that are convinced they know what they do not, are informed by theirs' and others' ignorance.

When you pass through death's door you will be singing a different song. It will be more like this:

Matthew 25:30 (NASB)
30 Throw out the worthless slave into the outer darkness; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

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?
Wrong as usual.

But you're a liar. You can't help it.

John 8:44 (ESV)
44 You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

A great many gay folks are also righteous, so I'm glad you are at least admitting that they will be in heaven. Will you be there after intentionally driving so many away from God?

We shall see.
