Some interesting things in there. The dispensation stuff at the end is all Millerite (a Camping like nutter) and I have already invetigated that lof path.For those interested, I am posting a link. I found this today, and I have done some research and study, and I discovered that many of the things which are in the article are some of the exact same things I've written in here.
One interesting thing to note is the difference in the gospels preached by Peter and Paul. I do believe that anyone who reads it with an open mind, and in regards to the times, then and now, could possibly learn something.
Now if there are those who discount the entire article without even opening it, or by simply reading just a few lines, then it is their loss, and it would seem to me that they are operating with a closed mind.
I hope you all know that I love all people, no matter who they are, where they've been, what they have or haven't done, or where they come from.
Furthermore, I would like to state that I would rather agree with God than with (in no particular order) Steve, RA, G, Grace, Epi, Larry, Q, Scott, DR, Shrink, my pastor, Charles Stanley, Billy Graham, Matthew McGee, Les Feldick etc, etc, etc.
And so without further adieu, here is the link:
Wha I did like is the contrast between the OT verses about blinding Israel and what Jesus said.
"Let thos who have eyes see..." Jessus (In my understanding) sasy that the truth is plain to see to all who want to see it. IMHO human nature is to refuse to face the truth. Some more so than others but few are afraid to know the whole truth.
So one of the things I always keep on mind is "can I face the possibility that I am wrong about God ?"
How many can honestly say "I believe these things but I may be wrong and end up in Hell anyway"
Think of it like a soldier going into battle. They have faith in what the believe in even though they may die that very day defending it.
I had to face the fact that no matter what I believe, I could end up being tortured for eternity no matter what I do or believe. "What if" the "truth" is that there is only Satan and Satan is the real God ? Could I face that ? If not then I will never be able to look for, let alone face, "The Truth".
Be careful when you ask for the truth, it usually is not what you wanted to hear.
