Hi Michael, I could never figure that one out myself, because the Bible clearly says we are not to pray to the dead.<quoted text>
I could never get my mind around praying for the dead.
......If someone was bad, and sinful and now dead, what does praying do for them? Really? If 100 people pray for a dead soul is that better than 1 person praying for them?
If someone lived a good clean life and died, whats the point in praying for them?
When you pray for someone, how is that recorded? Does God read your mind that you are praying for them?
Its all rediculous!
makes no common sense......
Once someone is is dead it is to late to be good, your fate is sealed. Absent from the body is present with the Lord, if a person is in Christ, if not then they go to hell.
what else that doesn't make sense to me is these doomsday prophets, who predicted a certain day . The Bible clearly says No man knows the hours not even the son only the Father which is in Heaven.
I think its only a fear tactic.
