<quoted text>No I seek my God first but I know he gives us encouragement and uses others to bring us encourangement among other things. I assure you I am not delusional. I do not come on here just for entertainment I usually enjoy the fellowship and have learned many things on here. What I find as delusional is arguing for arguing's sake just to get stuff started that only makes you more annoying.
Thanks

How does a GOD give you encouragement,...thru other people?.. maybe GOD exit only in your head. People need people I must agree, did you know the bible states, Man can not teach man about GOD?

I don't want to argue, I simply want to ask question about the "GOD-concept", I find most don't know anything about the christian GOD. They simply regurgitate bible verses never givin thought to meaning.

You don't come here "just" for entertainment,.. at least you're one who understands where you are....good for you it's a start.

So what does "hell" mean. Eternal fire and torture, or merely "separation" from God, or just annihilation. You see to me its a big Q, as I figure, if xians are right, myself, my wife, and pretty much all my friends and family and everyone I know will go there.
There are varying opinions about hell, the lake of fire and such. I believe you already know my views and I don't agree with some of my other brethren views on this area. I'll just give you what I believe concerning the Lake of Fire which will be meant for those who opposed Christ whether Christian or Non. I say Christian because oftentimes "Christian" is used as a title rather than a way of living:

1. "He who has an ear, LET HIM HEAR WHAT THE SPIRIT SAYS to the churches. He who overcomes will not be hurt at all by the second death." Revelations 2:11 (It's not just referring to the beast and the false prophet that will be cast into the lake of fire)

2. The 2nd death is the lake of fire.

"And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death." Revelation 20:14

3. "Blessed and holy are those who have part in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over THEM,"

Here again, the word "them" is not talking about the beast and false prophet but also refering to human beings.

* Let me say again as I have said in time's past... that it is not God's Will that any should go to this horrible place but come to repentance through Christ so that you and they might be saved.

BTW, concerning Revelations... I already have a good idea which Christians disbelieve this particular book. So those Christians who would like to use Revelations scripture to discount Revelations scripture... please spare me... I already know what the arguments are against it and it doesn't fly.

Perhaps many WINLACians didn't believe because of... um... Your Attitude?

{/QUOTE]

Being one of those WINLACians as you call us LOL I am well aware of Knowledge's time there along with her husbands. She seems to be making an effort now so I am willing to put that behind us and start all over. Not sure though about how the other WINLACians feel.

<quoted text>Actually the link to overcome porn obsession was meant as a help for those interested but more specifically it was directed toward Christians as the speaker is mostly talking to Christians who struggle in that area.

I think that I too misread your intent.

While I was doing searches about how the states dealt with social issues I ran across the pornography stats. There are many churches that are now recognizing the problem and are making attempts to address it.

There was one site the I read that I thought did a great job in putting it out there but sadly I didn't bookmark it.

It addressed one issue though that I specifically remember...one that I hadn't really thought about.

Not only does the Christian have to deal with the addiction to porn...they also have to deal with feeling that they are committing the sin. It went in to depth on that issue...it was good reading.

Mike...you remind me of my son when he was small. One morning while taking him to school he asked me can a bird fly as fast as a car can go. I gave him my best answer.

The next morning he asked the same question...so I tried again to answer him. This went on for a week...I finally knew that I was not giving him the answer that he wanted.

So...I asked him to give me the answer that he wanted to hear.

He did...I said okay...he never asked me the question again.

Agreed..
For my own views I believe that the Abraham's bosom (paradise) portion is no longer there... that they went up with the Lord and currently are in heaven. I do believe that the vast chamber of hell is still there though where the unrighteous dead currently are.

Yes... that guilt feeling is actually a good thing if it leads a Christian to repentance. It's an alarm saying, "this is wrong!" Now of course, guilt can go overboard if not addressed properly. And one can feel guilty for something he/she shouldn't be guilty of... or concerning porn, a Christian can ignore that guilt alarm and say, "There is now therefore no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus" and continue delving into porn.

The best thing to do is run from it.

Nice post. I would love to provide a non-atheiostic scientific response but I don't have the time now. A good subject but perhaps not here, start a new Topix thread at some point ?
Hey G, I don't know... perhaps that might be a good idea. I kind of like the idea that we can speak on various subjects in here and at the same time I can run, wave and do cartwheels with the Christian flag in here... not being accused of being on a non-christian based thread.

I think that this is what often causes the tension between groups. There are many who think that the problem is always someone elses instead of looking at themselves.

I think the brings up another problem. Regardless of what the addiction or sin...some Christians will hide there problems instead of seeking help. How easy can it be for someone that is addicted to porn, gambling, drinking to go seek help.

They fear scorn, embarrassment, rejection by their peers. Right here on this thread people's salvation has been questioned. Can you imagine how that would feel if it was your minister or a member of your congregation.

So I think often they keep it to themselves...thinking that they can deal with it on their own...only for the problem grow.

I wish your fellow Christians were informed enough not to believe in eternal torture as well.
Those who died without Christ and are currently in hell will eventually be poured into the lake of fire. That is what the scriptures are pointing out anyways. We know people are in hell because Jesus gave us a glimpse of it when talking about the man who ended up in hell Luke 16:23... I just saw something else and hadn't thought of it at the time that also confirms the condemnation to hell Matthew 23:33 and Luke 12:5.

This thread was not paid for by wanna-be christians, therefore it is not intended for wanna-be christians.

Well shrinky dink...this is probably my last post to you for a while.

I have tried to correspond with you...tried being kind...all it has gotten me are posts of disrespect from you. I have no desire to communicate with someone that can not show me respect.

I haven't read back through all the posts from last night but I am sure that I would find more posts from you that are similar to the one above.

When and if you can return the respect that I have tried to show to you then we will put the past behind us...until then...I have no need to put out the effort that it requires to respond with kindness to you.

So...it is best that I just go back to ignoring your posts and scrolling on by them.
