Thank you for the advice. I will take it into consideration. I apreciate that you cared enough to say something. I do think you are sincere in what you said in your warning. Equaly my apreciation is sincere.
Hell, torture, and eternal soul? Eternal soul? Yes, that is what the Bible says and I believe. Hell and torture/torment. Yes the bible says that and I believe it. But, I also believe in choice and consequences. Cause and affect. In another post you asked what made my view of hell any more valid than yours. Your view for you is equaly valid to you as mine is to mine at this time. However, I do beleive there will come a time when we will know the facts on this unquestionably. Until then I will have my view and you will have yours. I will share my view, because I believe it. Hopeing others might glean something of value to them. As I also listen to others views and try to glean from them. My comment about reading it again was to the point of God getting some sort of kick out of people in torment. And that it was for no reason. This is what I understood you to be saying. Perhaps I am wrong. The view of Hell being unjust is not a new one. I believe it was created for Satan the angels that followed him. And many of us are choosing to follow him as well. The Bible says there is a way unto man seems right but the end there of is destruction. We don't make the rules. And in our very finite knowledge might not agree with them. But, that doesn't change them. I believe God in his infinite knowledge is just. There is much I don't understand. But just because it doesn't make sense to me doesn't mean that it is not so. It just means it doesn't make sense to me. The flood? Again, choice. God tells us something is going to happen. We say I don't believe you. He tells us again and again and we continue to show how smart we are and how it isn't so. He continues to tell us, telling us how to escape what is coming. We laugh, only a fool would believe that nonsense. Then it happens and we cry about how uncaring God is. And how unjust he is. We can laugh at God and say that Hell isn't real or what ever we want. I believe there is coming a time when we will have rejected his grace and mocked him for the last time. And all of our objections will be irrelevant. We will reap what we sow. I do believe this.
Good Post Bernie....:-)

Indeed. Just heard a piece on the news that sounds like some of the loons in this forum.

Pentagon Calls Orthodox Christians “Monsters”
http://wcadvocate.wordpress.com/2013/04/28/pe...
The headline is a misrepresentation. The actual statement made was,

“Today, we face incredibly well-funded gangs of fundamentalist Christian monsters who terrorize their fellow Americans by forcing their weaponized and twisted version of Christianity upon their helpless subordinates in our nation’s armed forces.”- Mikey Weinstein, founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation

Regarding Dr. James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family:

“... illustrating the extremist, militant nature of these virulently homophobic organizations’ rhetorically-charged propaganda.”

Fewer and fewer people like you Christians, and more are feeling comfortable saying so in no uncertain terms.

What are you doing about it? Trying to find out what you are doing to evoke such negative responses, or blaming the sources and Satan?

Just kidding. It's never your fault. It's always an undeserved persecution totally out of the blue, right?

Here For Now is a woman.
Do you make it a habit of speaking to women this way?
Should God, or the FSM, or Paul Bunyan step in and stop you?
Why or why not?
Should God replace missing limbs? How about snot; who is responsible for snot? Who is responsible for ingrown toe nails, hazel eyes, and generally shitty days?
What about fairness? Why isn't this world fair?
If everything in your life went your way; is there a chance someone else would be put out? Who would be responsible for the one's put out? Would you care? Or are you only concerned about your world?
A butterfly flaps it's wings on the African coast and spawns a hurricane that kills thousands on the eastern seaboard of the USA; is the butterfly to blame? Should we then, as a protective measure, wipe out all butterfly's?
A milkman walks into an Amish schoolhouse and shoots only the girls. Should we abolish milkmen? Maybe we should abolish milk.
Yet who is to blame? There must be someone to blame. How the hell can the sun rise tomorrow if we have no one to blame for the deaths of the little girls?
Twenty-six thousand (26,000) humans starved to death today worldwide. It was the same yesterday, last week ...and will be the same tomorrow. Who is to blame? What did you do today to end worldwide famine? Twenty-six thousand ...man that's a big pile of stinking, rotting corpses. Google it, I'm not making it up ...26,000.
So besides crying because God didn't do it; what did you do today to make this world a better place?
Did you prevent any natural disasters?
Did you prevent any innocent deaths?
Did you annihilate any butterfly's?
Did you feed a hungry stranger?
You people need to unlearn "fair". Fair is only an illusion.

A Plea for Prayer...

Brethern, pray for us....2nd Thesssalonians 3:1

"Commit to pray and intercede-
The battle's strong and great's the need;
And this one truth can't be ignored:
Our only help comes from the Lord."

Intercede for others in prayer;
God's throne is always accessible.

I do understand how you feel, it is beginning to become more and more of a bore going over the same tired debates time and time again, I've already cut off ol' IANS some time back and now I'm ready to turn Lacez aloose, there never learn, they think that they can rip us from the masters hands, but they'll never be able to do that to those who are firmly rooted and Grounded into God's Holy truth.
Hope that you had a good day and are having a very peace filled night my friend. Many Blessings to you and yours.

You're just ignorant to how intolerant you are to other people's opinions. You also believe that your beliefs are more important than others. That's very narcissistic of you.

From this point I am cutting you off, and will not respond to anymore of your posts, you are trapped within your own circular looped egotism and I am through with you.
Who's the one refusing to provide any evidence, yet claiming they are 100% right?
I doubt that this is your last post to me.
Either on the next page I'll find another reply, or later on.
If I bother you so much that you'll send your petty insults my way, then I doubt you'll go cold turkey.

I only bother you so much because you know you are wrong and in the wrong.

And here comes definition number two, which is a little closer to valid. Why didn't you offer it the first time instead of wasting time with some bogus definition that you obviously didn't think about for even a second? Conversing with you is unnecessarily laborious. You're too much work.

Hello mike :) I remember you sometimes ask good questions. I think this is one of the better ones. In my oppinion, if belief doesn't bring about actions that support that belief, it's not much good. I think that the best way to express belief is to act upon them. Many say I believe, but not as many act on what they say they believe. It is easy to say I believe I should love everyone including those who don't see things as I do. But my action or words to those who don't would exspress my belief better than me just saying it. Just some of my thoughts on the matter :)
Hello b-man,..thanks.

So,may I say then,... "A belief is actually a belief when one acts upon what they think they believe"?
